  • That comment came from a couple who had been to two pastors and multiple counselors for help with their marriage and blended family, but no one could help because they didn't understand the differences in stepfamilies. So, I'm going to contrast how biological families and stepfamilies are different and the same. Why do that? Because if you're a ministry leader, your program needs to adapt. And if you're a stepparent or a future stepparent, you need to know how to approach your role differently.

They just don’t get it, Ron. Stepfamilies are not the same.

Ron: They just don’t get it, Ron. Stepfamilies are not the same.

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

Ron: That comment came from a couple who had been to two pastors and multiple counselors for help with their marriage and blended family, but no one was able to help because they didn’t understand the differences in stepfamilies. So, from time to time, I’m going to contrast biological families and stepfamilies how they are different and the same.

But why do that? Because if you’re a ministry leader, your program needs to adapt. And if you're a grandparent, a neighbor, or family friend, you need to know how to support someone you love in a blended family. And if you’re a stepparent or a future stepparent, you need to know how to approach your role differently. The more you know, the better you love. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
