Today’s ProgramRemember the old Lucille Ball & Henry Fonda movie, “Yours Mine and Ours”? Dennis Quaid & Rene Russo starred in the remake a few years ago. Those movies resonated with Americans because the “blended” family is fairly common in our world, and so are the accompanying challenges. How do you do it? How will living intentionally help you do it? Dr. Randy addresses it today with callers from all over the country, and our old blended family expert friend Ron Deal drops by, and we’ll get some blended family financial advice from Parkey Thompson, as well, as we address “How to Intentionally Blend a Family” on today’s program. Join the conversation by calling the program at 1-888-888-1717 or share your thoughts on our Facebook. Be sure to “Like” us while you’re there!
