30 Days to a Better Stepfamily –Day 1
Step families. What a complicated group of folks that can be. For the next 30 days, I want to write to you about our Stepfamily. I will tell you ahead of time that the stories are not always pretty, and my theology is not coming from one who is a scholar in such things, but a simple woman who loves her Lord, her husband, and all of the children under our roof.
To talk with you about stepfamilies as though I am some authority or to think that you would read all of this looking for answers has, several times, paralyzed me with fear.
Because I don’t have all the answers, only God does, and sometimes He seems to delight in a game of Hide and Seek; hiding the answers in plain sight for me to seek.
“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, and the glory of a king to seek it out.” (Proverbs 25:2 NIV)
Do you find this to be true?
I have four categories that I will touch on and try to share with you what the Lord has taught me through the years – Christian Attitude, Discipline, Practical Application, and Celebration
How do I qualify for this – I don’t! Sometimes I can look at our family and say, “Yes we are doing it right.” And sometimes we are a not much more than a hot mess!
Doc and I have been married for thirteen years. Together we join as family two birth and two stepchildren. We have one son-in-law of a different race, and three grandchildren. I can honestly say love each of these people as my own.
I hope this series will bless you and at times give you reasons to laugh and say, “Hey, me too!”
Thank you for joining me and shining some of your light onto this subject that I simply call, 30 Days to a Better Stepfamily.
