  Helping Blended Families Thrive!

Who We Are

"Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace."

Ephesians 4:3

Blended Families United exist to help blended families build steprelationships that thrive...because CHILDREN MATTER! 

About Us 

On April 19th, 2018, Blended Families United became a Member Ministry of Ministry Alliance. By joining Ministry Alliance, we are a tax-exempt nonprofit ministry under their organizational umbrella. February 11th was our first Smart Stepfamily Marriage study group and May 1st, we launched The Smart Stepfamily Classes by Ron Deal, AND May 12th we were one of the featured ministries at the Heartbeat of a Woman conference. 2018 is half over, but we've just begun!


Our Vision 

We believe children of divorce matter, and that it is possible to collectively collaborate with our blended stepfamilies by seeking peace and pursuing it so that we may build healthy relationships with one another by keeping the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 


The vision we hold for blended families is that co-parents, stepcouples, and stepparents resolve and heal their ghosts from the past, educate themselves on preventing redivorce and how to build healthy stepfamily relationships, practice peacemaking skills in their communication with their ex-spouse and one another, and become united in raising emotionally healthy children so they can be nurtured and given an opportunity to be whole as they grow into adults. 


 Blended families and cohabitating stepcouples make up 87 percent of cohabitating couples with children in America. And, with over one million new divorces a year, and the rate is growing daily, thousands of children are affected by divorce and the interaction of their biological parents and stepparents. Providing resources that educate., equip and empower co-parents, stepcouples, and stepparents, will help them to raise healthy and thriving children and stepchildren, and provide the tools they need to prevent redivorce and build steprelationships that thrive.

Our Strategy

  • EDUCATE stepcouples about remarriage and stepfamily statistics and how they can build on their strengths through The Smart Stepfamily Marriage study group. The Smart Stepfamily educational course will help stepcouples understand that it's important to cook a stepfamily slowly over time, learn communication skills to deal with ex-spouses, solve puzzles of stepchildren relationships, recognize the unique place of each family member, and how to honor families of origin while developing new traditions. 
  • EQUIP co-parents and stepcouples with resources, tools, and skills needed to collectively collaborate together in their communication, actions, and faith by providing books, workbooks, and workshops that offer more effective ways to communicate, build trust, and make peace. 
  • EMPOWER stepparents, biological parents, and co-parents to UNITE to raise emotionally healthy children so they can be nurtured and given an opportunity to be whole as they grow into adults. Empower premarital and stepcouples to build healthy stepfamily relationships that thrive to prevent redivorce. This is done by providing mentoring for stepcouples, a faith-based community for blended families to come together and connect at their home church, and blended family support groups. 
  • ENGAGE in strategic partnerships and alliances with local organizations, churches, ministries, businesses, counselors, therapist, and state institutions, that interact with divorced parents, children of divorce, stepcouples, and stepfamilies to offer help and support. And, to reach out Nationally and Globally to ALL blended/stepfamilies to encourage HOPE and UNIFICATION.
