“I just wanted to thank you Ron for having a web site that offers encouragement for stepparenting.Before getting married and becoming the stepmom to two pre-teen girls, I found your web site and was able to read some very useful and eye-opening information.I received some great insight as well as a new-found motivation to ensure a healthy, happy home life for my new husband and stepdaughters.Without the available resource information, I know my first year with my new family would have been a very rocky road.Instead, I practiced some of the great suggestions and examples from the articles and so far I have had wonderful success.Thank you again for giving me a place to turn to in order to help myself and my new blended family!”

My name is Tracy.My husband and I attended your stepfamily conference recently.I wanted to send you a note to say THANK YOU.It was a life changing experience.Through your conference God has opened our eyes and our hearts to so many of the misunderstandings and feelings of frustration we have been having during the course of our three years of marriage.With five children (ages 7 to 17) there were lots of misunderstandings!We will continue to seek God’s word in growing our family and our marriage.Praise God for you and this ministry.”
"Smart Stepfamilies is the most highly practical program I know for helping couples who are dealing with the common struggles of stepparenting. The church desperately needs to offer hope to this large segment of our society. Ron and Nan Deal are available to help you with the process. Ron is an excellent presenter and his book The Smart Stepfamily is the most helpful book I know on this topic. I highly recommend them and their ministry."
