Show Notes

Everyone in your family is God's precious, purposeful design. And yet, sibling squabbles, personality clashes, character issues, parenting mistakes... sometimes family life is uhh, colorful.   We've created a new occasional, on-going series looking at the unique personalities in your home and how to get them to mesh, blend, and shine together as a family.   Even with your parent imperfections, and your kids' one-of-a-kind differences, and all of those designed-by-God personalities, your family is God's masterpiece in the making!

In PART 1 Uniquely United, my husband Rich joins me in the studio as we discuss the differences between a slower-paced personality and a faster-paced personality.  We look at both types of parents and the pitfalls that sometimes accompany those differences.  I open up about some big regrets that brought some BIG LESSONS in learning to reign in my parenting type, to better blend with my kids that are different from me. 

CLASH IN YOUR HOME: A GAMEPLAN for CLEANING UP the CONFLICT is a book I wrote about changes we made in our family to communicate better and find our way toward more teamwork and less conflict.
