As a pastor’s wife, women’s discipleship director, mother, and stepmother of a blended family, the more I learn about the love, grace, and peace of Jesus, AND the more I apply the things He teaches me through prayer and His word, the happier, healthier, and more peaceful my family is. I am blessed to be part of a blended family. We can get messy. However, when we are gracefully blending, the light and love of Jesus shines. The same holds true for any family whatever that family looks like, for any relationships you have, and for yourself. Don’t forget to give yourself grace too! Learning to give grace and mercy is a journey that begins with Jesus and will continue on as you walk in your most important relationship with Him. He is the guide!
