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!"

"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."
