The Joyful Stepmom
Welcome to The Joyful Stepmom! We are proudly celebrating 5 YEARS of ministry. I love to talk about this! Have you heard our story? In October, 2013 we answered the call to keep a tiny Facebook Group open. There were 50 stepmoms willing to pray for each other. Today we have over 4500 women praying, participating in Bible Studies and meeting locally. Now that is all Jesus! 

As a young wife and stepmom, I could be found awake in the middle of the night. My mind racing, heart searching for hope or answers. And where do we all turn? The internet, of course. I firmly believe there should be another Christian stepmom on the end of that search offering hope and pointing us back to Jesus. 

Emily is founder of The Joyful Stepmom, an online ministry for Christian stepmothers. She has been married since 2005 and has a college age stepson. Her love for her family has developed into a passion for stepmoms and Blended Family Ministry. Emily served two terms on the Advisory Board for Stepfamily Systems Co-Parenting Center and is a Contributor for Better Than Blended. The Joyful Stepmom was founded in 2013 as a Facebook group for prayer and encouragement. The ministry now includes Local Chapters and website with devotional resources.  For writing and ministry questions, contact Emily here: emily  @   thejoyfulstepmom . com

LOCAL CHAPTERS

The stepmom community. We feel it online! We need and want to feel it in our churches and towns. Stepmoms meeting face to face for coffee, looking you directly in the eye and listening to your heart and prayer. The Joyful Stepmom would love to see our family grow from online to tangible, hands and feet in your church and home towns! How do we start that? With you. 

Check out our Local Chapters! Some stepmoms are meeting in groups monthly, others are meeting one on one for coffee whenever life allows. But they are real Jesus loving stepmom near you. If you do not see a listing in your area, that's ok! Pray about how you can serve in this way and be a mentor in your area.
