Terri and her husband, Harvey successfully blended their family of six children and lived to tell about it, marriage intact. Their happy and successful fourteen year marriage is an example of what can be accomplished when two people marry with children, commitment and Christ.
Just wanted you to know that your book has accomplished two things.
One--it has uplifted me in my Christian walk with my Saviour. I see things in different perspective now, all things relate to my walk and to my blended family. I appreciate your efforts in showing me this.
Two--it has given me hope that even though our family was once broken, it can be made whole with our eyes on our Saviour and nothing else. With time and prayer, our blended family can be a family worth so much in God's eyes.

Clark sees prayer, planning, and personal effort as key. her book offers creative ideas for new family holiday traditions; setting standards; and giving each child a feeling of belonging, stability, and love. Two useful chapters address blending families after widowhood and families with adult children.
Sharing candidly from her own experiences, Clark offers Christian solutions for issues such as power struggles, choosing battles, organization, and dealing with ex-spouses. Obeying Christ, commitment, communication, compromise, and consistency are key elements woven throughout. Tying the Family Knot contains excellent advice often learned the hard way by the Clark family.

Turn on the Light! is Terri's own search for purpose and meaning for her life. She weaves humor, grace and insight into her testimony, as she takes you on her journey of flipping all the wrong switches until the Light of Life was found.
Looking Forward, Not Behind! -- Terri says, "Tear off that rear view mirror, and throw it behind you!" It isn't what is behind you that matters, it is where you are going. When we keep looking behind, we are sure to run off the road. In this message, Terri takes an in-depth look at Philippians 3:13 showing how important it is to keep our focus on God and our eyes looking forward.
Come Up Higher! is an encouraging message on how God uses the circumstances of our lives, to call us to come away with Him. Terri shares out of her own personal family tragedy how God beckoned her to "come up higher."
Swimming With the Ugly Ducks -- You know the ones.. We all have those Ugly Ducks in our lives. Around them, you have to walk on egg shells. Ugly ducks don't care about anyone but themselves, they might be an obnoxious family member, or the friend who is always going through a tragedy of their own making. Terri takes a humorous approach to teaching us what God's word has to say about swimming with these ugly ducks. Terri asks, "Are you quacking up in a pond of ugly ducks?" if so, this message is for you.
When God Stirs Up Your Nest -- Before an eagle can soar he must first learn to fly. In this message, Terri shares how a parent eagle teaches his young to leave the security of his nest. In the same way, the trials and adversities of our lives teach us to step out of our comfort zone and soar with our heavenly Father.
The Depravity of Gravity -- Do you think you're too fat, too thin, too old, or too young? Do you feel inferior because you think you're not as smart as someone else? In this message, Terri reveals the secret to breaking free from the gravity of the world and its unrealistic expectations. Terri will teach you to soar like an eagle. Your value is not in how you look, how much money you make, or how smart you are. You can't be, do, or perform any more to make God love you more than He already does. You are God's workmanship and masterpiece.
