StepUp 2020 | Blended Family Workshop Series

Uniting two families with distinct cultures, history and sometimes baggage isn't something most of us know how to do.  After 15 years of stepfamily life, we finally realized that most of the issues we were dealing with in our relationship and family were the result of failing to understand that stepfamilies are different. 

We want to offer you support throughout the year as you implement the advice you received at the Smart Stepfamily Conference and as new challenges arise in your family.


Please join our monthly 90-minute coaching workshops beginning Friday, February 28th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm MT.  We've designed this series to accommodate every situation, you can join us live, watch the live stream or watch later on demand.

Friday, March 27, 2020 | 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Creating a stepfamily is a huge decision — much bigger than getting married without dependent kids from earlier relationships — because of the obvious baggage. It’s not enough just to love somebody.  You have to make sure your love is strong enough to share your partner’s family life — and even if you’re sure, you can’t just jump into it without preparation.

As a stepfamily there is so much consideration that is required to make a family successful, but most of the time we just mess it up because we don't know how to effectively be in a stepfamily.  Join us to learn practical skills for creating the stepfamily you've always wanted.

Feb 2020: Establishing Stepfamily Expectations

The prospect of building a stepfamily can evoke feelings of excitement, relief, nervousness and worry all at the same time.  Building a successful stepfamily requires significant energy and commitment, so partners should talk about expectations for each other and their new family before and after marriage. Addressing these important issues early can help avoid serious problems down the road. Setting realistic expectations and goals are crucial to creating a healthy, successful stepfamily.
