ABOUT THE HOST

BLENDING YOUR STEPFAMILY

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage…

So beautiful, but not the only “norm” anymore. Being Remarried with kids is just as common. The problem is that only one out of three Remarried’s with children will actually make it until “death do us part”. Why? There are many reasons. Second families just do not work the same as first families yet we enter into them expecting them to. With the right tools and support we can have a very happy stepfamily. This is the mission of Blending Your Stepfamily.

Joseph was Jesus’ Step Dad. He could have taken the attitude “the child is not mine, I wasn’t there when He was conceived”. But he accepted the boy as an assignment from God to raise Him up in the way He should go. If we can look at our step relationships as an assignment from God, and that He chose us to raise this child, or love that stepparent or stepsibling, perhaps we can not only impact their life but maybe the world.

THE PODCAST

Blending Your StepFamily addresses issues such as co-parenting, discipline, jealousies, resentments, the blending stages, communication, stepmom stuff and the list could go on. We will delve into the unique circumstances that blended families face.

Proverbs 3:5,6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” This verse says it all in that if we will trust God and lean on His wisdom and understanding, and acknowledge that He is involved with us; then He will make our path straight and give us direction in every situation our family may face..
