A blended-family often yields parents and step-parents who compete against each other.

The truth is, you and especially your child(ren) has been given more and with more comes more responsibility. It’s easy to view it from a place of competition, but the truth is, it’s added responsibility for having more.

[Pray This]

Your Action (What action based on your prayer can you take?):
Take a step back, take your eyes off the obvious, and see the blessing in the life you’ve been given.
