Kind Words from Friends of Blended Not Broken
"God sometimes gives you the wonderful privilege of working alongside people of integrity and excellence and I can’t think of more appropriate words to describe Tim Smith and the ‘team’ at Blended, Not Broken. With nearly 50% of families in the U.S. either remarried or recoupled, and hundreds of stepfamilies being formed every day, their unique expertise and wise counsel bring a deep well of faith-based resources that are critically needed for the Body of Christ. Honored to be part of such a great ministry focus and all they represent."

Hope for the Heart
"As Pastors, we get to see up close the pain and residual effects of relationships damaging people and people damaging relationships. We get to walk alongside divorcees, widows, and widowers as they endeavor to move forward in life without their spouse.
In the Blended, Not Broken coaching course, Tim and Christie have done a masterful job of equipping leaders and caregivers with the tools needed to help people win in life, and helping us all see the fullness of God’s grace to redeem, repair, and renew broken families. Anyone desiring to turn hopelessness into great hope should take this course!
