EARLY BIRD NOTICE! Join the new FB Group for Women who are ready to do the work in their Stepfamilies! Blending is hard. It can take a little longer to understand that our kids and stepkids are struggling in similar ways we struggle; the challenges they face are somewhat similar to our own.Meet Wanda Patrick. Wanda understands the challenges single parents and stepparents face. When her husband died, leaving her with two young children to raise alone, she didn't get a break between grieving and meeting the demands of single parenting; she was thrown into a world of heavy, emotional, physical, social, and financial demands. Can you relate? When Wanda remarried, she greatly underestimated the difficulty of blending families and bonding with three teenagers. She believed if she was good to her husband's children and her husband was good to her children, they would accept each other and enjoy blending their families. But you know where I'm going with this--Wanda was wrong.How to protect your heart in the midst of stepfamily hurt:Acknowledge the hurt is real.  You hurt.  Your spouse hurts.  Your kids, biological & step, hurt.Imagine yourself hovering in a helicopter.  Check out the view - what challenges are your kids facing as they blend?Purposeful prayer with your partner.  Unity in prayer with your mate is the most powerful weapon you have to combat the hurt.  Remember, God has already prepared the healing balm for your wounds!Get curious about the emotional response - experience anger as a clue that this moment, this relationship matters (see episode #55 for specific tips on how to manage your emotions) Practice forgiveness.  While it may take some time for your feelings to line up, God will honor your repentant heart.Ask for help! Seek Coaches, counselors, therapists, & other stepfamily resources.We help stepfamily couples turn what feels impossible into Stepfamily Mission POSSIBLE! We help you understand how critical YOU are as leaders in your family to create a kingdom legacy that relies on God’s best for your family.If you’re ready to ditch the chaos caused by high conflict stepfamily norms, regain intimacy as a couple, and begin to live your Kingdom Legacy right now, you’re in the right place.  We pray you enjoy this episode of Stepfamily Mission POSSIBLE!, and if so, rate and review!   Want even more guidance and support?You do?!

Ever wonder what your stepkids are thinking?!  You're not alone, stepmom. We've got you, stepdad! The reason blending families feels so hard is because creating stepfamilies IS HARD!!! From our guest: "We're humans. So it's going to be hard.  I don't even fault my dad or my stepmom or my stepdad for the way they handled the situation. They handled it the best way they knew how; it just doesn't have a great outcome, but we're humans. So, it's a learning process. I hope by me speaking that it can impart some kind of deep pondering on to the adults listening."Whew! Powerful words from our next guest, Terri Smith, Founder of Freshen Up and stepdaughter of two families who experiences significant transitions as Terri's parents determined how best to raise her.  As stepparents still processing the impact of stepfamily dynamics, we appreciate Terry's nuggets of wisdom! Thank you, Terri for sharing with us on how to deal with the "stinky" situations of stepfamily living!Welcome to Stepfamily Mission POSSIBLE! Podcast.

I go right up to the edge of my comfort zone and then step over it. Time-keyed—every goal needs a date associated with it. When do you plan to deliver on that goal. It could be by year-end (December 31) or it could be more near-term (March 31). A goal without a date is just a dream. Make sure that every goal ends with a by when date.Exciting—you should be personally excited about achieving the goal. If this isn’t the case, then you likely won’t have the motivation necessary to continue pursuing the goal when you encounter unexpected challenges—which you inevitably will.Relevant—your goal should be relevant—or aligned with—your values, your season in life, and your other goals.Excerpted from https://michaelhyatt.com/goal-setting/Join us in the Mastermind for Stepfamily Couples community to get answers to your questions, clarity on this week's mission, and an opportunity to be featured in Season 5!Bill & Jen help stepfamily couples turn what feels impossible into Stepfamily Mission POSSIBLE!

Now that you've been together for a bit, a sneaky little thing called unmet expectations can begin to sabotage your starry-eyed love affair. That's why it is so important that you START WITH YOU! Because friends, YOU are where it's at in your stepfamily!Oftentimes, we have high expectations and low communications when it comes to what we need in our relationships. Today's episode revisits a modified version of #39, where Bill & Jen share the importance of reducing unmet needs through the power of having a combined marriage mindset.We reference the SYMBIS - Assessment throughout the episode.  We invite you to take the assessment with us (it requires trained facilitators) so you can begin to build your Stepfamily Legacy.  The SYMBIS is the first step.  Check our website for enrollment opportunities or book a free, 30-minute consult to get started!You know when you hear that mysterious rattle as you're driving in your car?Sure you do, it's the sound that mysteriously disappears the moment you attempt to explain it...well, reenact it, really, when you're chatting with the mechanic.Your mechanic may raise his eyebrows at you as you hiss, screech, or make some other, "what the heck is wrong with my car" sound...but, he will listen. And...he'll pull your car into the shop to assess what's going on.Bill and I propose the same strategy when it comes to your marriage.When we discover the time is ripe for gathering specific tools to gain momentum and develop a marriage mindset, it's a good time for an assessment.  It's also a great time to find others who have gone before you to help encourage and guide you along the way.We pray you enjoy this episode of Stepfamily Mission POSSIBLE!, and if so, rate and review! Bill & Jen help stepfamily couples turn what feels impossible into Stepfamily Mission POSSIBLE!
