Let’s Celebrate National Stepfamily Week Together!

The world screams loudly for revenge. But I say, “When You’re Tired of Being A Stepmom, Become A Rebel!” I am a Jesus loving stepmom and the stakes are high. – Emily Jordan, Joyful Stepmom Click To Tweet I’m not here for revenge, I’m not interested in putting up my fists.  As a Christian, my stepmom journey is uncommon.  God calls me to a different...
