Blended and Blessed

Blended & Blessed is a one-day live stream retreat for step-family couples, single parents, dating couples with kids, and those who care about blended families.

Join us at Granbury First United Methodist Church as we participate with thousands around the globe to unpack key successes that are crucial to healthy step-family marriages. With some of today’s most trusted and respected experts, Blended & Blessed will challenge, inspire, and encourage us. Over 13,000 people from 22 countries experienced the 2017 event, and we’re excited to host the live stream retreat this year with new speakers and more help for families and marriages in 2018.

FREE childcare and lunch is provided. To ensure we can serve every family who needs childcare, please register below with the name and ages of your child(ren). Please know, all our childcare volunteers/workers have been background checked and trained through the “Ministry Safe” program.

Your hosts at the event will be Patrick and Maureen Griffin. Their daughter Lu, will be assisting in childcare. The Griffin’s are a blended family of 5 daughters, 2 son-in-laws and 5 grandchildren. In their 6-year journey of blended family life, Patrick and Maureen will tell you, “It’s like the most awesome roller-coaster …extreme highs and lows…wild twists and turns…external and internal forces seeking to shape the ride. It is a unique family dynamic, a unique marriage that needs the support of those who understand the ride and the tools specific to blended-family marriages that build success.” Maureen will add, “there’s nothing “typical” about our family, when it comes to demographics we have a Boomer husband, Gen-X wife, our youngest is 13 and oldest is 32. I became an instant “Grams” when we married, after living many years with just my daughter and me. We know what it feels like to go to a “typical” marriage retreat and feel like the information just isn’t what we need. That’s why we’re excited to facilitate Blended & Blessed!”

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at Blended & Blessed on April 21st!
