Description

Welcome to the Blended Kingdom Families Podcast! If you are in need of resources that deal with remarriage, step-parenting, co-parenting, preparing to blend, or divorce-proofing your marriage, we are here to serve you! Blended Kingdom Families is a step-family ministry that is committed to providing resources for individuals, families, and churches by implementing biblical foundations and practical tips.


 Our mission is to break the generational cycle of divorce, equip marriages, and unite blended families with the truth of God's word. Hosts, Scott and Vanessa Martindale, living blended their entire lives, they know firsthand both the joys and difficulties that can come along with it.


 We hope that this podcast would encourage, excite, and equip you in your blended family journey. When you blend your family God's way, you have a 100% chance of success. He will complete the good work He began in your step-family, for nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37).
