This is the ministry I needed as a young stepmom - I still need it!

You can go anywhere on the internet and get some kind of support. There are plenty of stepmom groups on Facebook, you can post whatever is going on – why you are angry. And you’ll have a hundred comments of people angry right along with you.  I wanted to be able to share what was going on and have another stepmom say, "Hey, I’m praying for you, here’s a Christian resource that really helped us." I wanted a place of hope and prayer. I hope that’s what we are today.

This morning I woke up to a winter wonderland. I'm sure you've heard the saying "No two snowflakes are exactly alike." It reminded me of YOU! While all of us here are stepmoms and connected by that common thread, our situations and experiences can be very different. I love that in this group - we also have the common thread of faith ❤ So while our stories and problems may take all different shapes, we approach with one common theme - the heart of Christ.

Each year we choose a verse as our theme in The Joyful Stepmom. For 2021, we have selected Hebrews 10:24, "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds."
The Joyful Stepmom Facebook Group has long enjoyed participating in book/bible studies together.
