Daily Encouragement for the Smart Stepfamily


Daily Encouragement for the Smart Stepfamily by Ron L. Deal (with Dianne Neal Matthews) is a lovely book full of devotions specifically written for stepfamilies. It is a year-long devotional book, with a single page devotion written for every day of the year. I like how the book is tailored for busy families; each devotion can be read within a few minutes, but the content is deep and heartfelt. My favorite devotions were July 18, “When Conflict is a Good Thing,” and November 22, “Thank God for Your Family.” This is a great book for bringing families closer together. I previously read The Smart Stepfamily: Seven Steps to a Healthy Family by Ron L. Deal, and I recommend that book as well.
