Authors Robert and Nancy Wolgemuth fondly remember the days of their courtship when they discussed becoming a blended family. Nancy recalls how her heart skipped a beat and began to soften as Robert told her how he loved being married and shepherding a wife. Robert gives his best advice for husbands seeking to shepherd well. Joining them is Ron Deal, director of FamilyLife Blended.
Nancy has touched millions of women's lives through Revive Our Hearts (an outreach of Life Action Ministries) and the True Woman Movement, calling them to heart revival and biblical womanhood. Her love for the Word and the Lord Jesus are infectious, and permeate her online outreaches, conference messages, books, and two daily nationally syndicated radio programs—Revive Our Hearts and Seeking Him with Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
She has authored eighteen books, including Lies Women Believe, A Place of Quiet Rest, and Seeking Him. More than 2.7 million copies have been sold, and they continue to transform women’s hearts and lives.
