Breakout Panel Presenters

Together, Willie and Rachel Scott are the Founders of Better Than Blended, LLC. an organization dedicated to "Building Blended Families That Thrive." They have written several books and created resources to support blended families in areas such as having peace during custody battles, navigating difficulties in co-parenting, blending within the home, and prioritizing the marriage.

As children, Willie and Rachel both experienced life in a blended family home. When joined together in marriage, they both desired for their children to experience unity and oneness within the home. This was an audacious prayer – Willie was widowed with three children and Rachel was divorced with two children. They now have a total of seven children ranging from toddler to adult. Their authenticity about their continual journey of blending is a constant reminder to other blended families that they are walking the journey with them. This has been essential to the success of their family and their organization.

Willie and Rachel know that God has blessed them to “Blend Gracefully.” With wisdom well beyond their years, their desire is to encourage, mentor and equip blended families to become pillars of strength and an awesome testimony of the sustaining power of God’s truth.
