The Joyful Stepmom
​I think it's no secret that blended families make up a broad part of our culture today. And stepmoms are right there in the middle. Online communities are a growing outlet for us to search for help, resources, and not feel alone.  ​Why The Joyful Stepmom?  As a Christian, it's  important that I fill my cup with support that matches Jesus' heart and word. When we search online, when we ask for help- there should be a Christian stepmom on the other end willing to stand in the gap and pray with us. That is what we're all about.
