  • Jemma's husband left her and their daughter and married a woman and was expecting a child. Jemma's pain and bitterness was overwhelming so she planned to take her daughter away from her father. But Jemma's mother told her to stop and think and respond in grace. She stayed and she's so glad she did. Today, her daughter and half-sister are very close and Jemma has a healthy co-parenting relationship with the other home that blesses both kids. Bitterness doesn't lead us toward love. Grace does.

Ron: One decision can make all the difference.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: One of the hardest things to do—after a significant hurt or betrayal—is to not let bitterness control you. But Jemma was about to do just that. You see, her husband left her and their daughter, and in short order, married another woman and was expecting a child. Jemma’s pain and bitterness was overwhelming so she made plans to take her daughter away from her father. But Jemma’s mother told her to stop and think and respond in grace.

She stayed. And, she’s so glad she did. Today her daughter and half-sister are very close and Jemma has a healthy co-parenting relationship with the other home that blesses both kids. Bitterness doesn’t lead us toward love. Grace does. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
