Diane Bailey Remarriage Blended Family Step Parenting

Welcome to episode 045 of Mud Stories!

Mud Stories is a podcast dedicated to bringing you inspiration in your muddiest moments, hope to make it through your mud, and encouragement for you to know, you are not alone.

In today’s episode I’m talking with Diane Bailey–writer, blogger and life coachwho resides in the Deep South with her husband. Some of Diane’s favorite things include fried okra, gumbo, any day at the beach with her family. and overindulging her three grandchildren on a regular basis.

As a blended stepfamily, Diane and her husband have successfully raised four children to adulthood, and from her experience, Diane has written an e-book entitled: 30 days to a Better Step Family, to help assist others through some of their most challenging times.

In this episode Diane discusses:

  • Domestic violence
  • Divorce as a rescue from abuse
  • Single parenting
  • Dating and remarriage
  • And the issues surrounding a blended family

Diane shares:

  • Wisdom and insight about remarriage and step parenting
  • And provides tips and strategies all parents can apply

Diane is warm and charming, and based on her experience, she lends a perspective that is so very wise. It is my hope that no matter what you’re facing today, Diane’s words would be an encouragement to you.

Enjoy!
