What people are saying...
"We celebrated our tenth anniversary by taking part in the 2014 Love Like You Mean It Cruise! Words cannot fully express how wonderful and romantic the experience was for us. We have both been through divorce previously and have been through some ups and downs in our marriage but the commitment to the marriage covenant is what has kept us together...Opportunities like the Love Like You Mean It Cruise and programs like FamilyLife Today make a difference. We thoroughly enjoyed the sessions each day on the cruise with phenomenal speakers! Ron Deal's 4 Pillars of Stepparent Success was especially good for us. The concerts we attended and comedy and "Moms' Night Out" Movie Premiere were all so much a blessing and entertaining! The dining was exceptionally good. Grand Turk Island was beautiful. We will not wait another ten years to do this again!"

"Nothing prepared me for what I have experienced as a stepmother over the last almost 12 years. It has been one of the most challenging, painful, lonely, difficult experiences of my life... It has also been one of the greatest learning experiences I have had—and much of that is due to the hope and knowledge I have received from reading your website, your books, and recently participating in a webinar... I am grateful that you have made your life’s work providing resources, direction, information, and hope for the many people struggling with stepfamily issues. With gratitude I am making a donation to the Stepping Forward Campaign."
