How can stepfamilies get support?
One definition of fellowship is a bunch of fellows (and gals) in the same ship. That, in a nutshell, is one of the benefits of Christianity. We re all seeking to serve God while we are here on earth. And since we know earth is not a perfect place, we re going to face trials, pain, temptations, and heartbreak along the way.
That s why Christians need other Christians. God uses us to help each other learn, survive, and grow more in the image of Christ. How can we accomplish this goal? How can our stepfamilies be part of a caring community of believers? This study will explore these issues.
