What People are Saying

"I was ready to give up on the stepfamily ministry at my church. I am now energized and ready to squeal the tires out of the parking lot to get back at it." 

"As a Pastor, it has changed the way in which I counsel blended families! And minister to children of blended families."

“I now have a better understanding of blended families and can better counsel them and start a ministry with them.”

“You are giving people the opportunity to know their lives and story matter, it felt like being dunked in the cleansing water of Love!”

“We have been able to see immediate actions we can take to grow/improve what we have as well as long term growth.”

“It has profoundly affected me. The idea that I need to get in the trenches and hear the good, the bad, and the ugly. That serving others is not always a pretty thing, but that there can be beauty from the ashes if we meet people where they are at and most importantly have Jesus at the center.”

“A profound statement from Ron, “Stepparents can be grief counselors to their step kids.” Had I known this 18 years ago, I would have been a better stepmom.” 

“Encourages us to continue boldly on our mission to reach as many blended families as possible with the message of the gospel, hope, and redemption.”

“Realized I have pride keeping me from fully embracing blended families. Increased my compassion and resolve to help hurting families.”

"We really need to come alongside stepfamilies in an encouraging way and help them to connect with those who can understand their situation. We are not a blended family, but we are part of the marriage ministry in our church because we wish to see ALL marriages thrive, not just survive."
