Today I want to share with you two great resources to aid your
parenting or stepparenting efforts.

First, check out this organization I’ve just learned about called
The Mother Daughter Project:  a community of women and girls
dedicated to discovering and sharing ways mothers and daughters can
stay close and thrive together through adolescence and beyond. The
small group settings recommended by the project help challenge the
common expectation of mother-daughter separation. 

The website provides the project background and offers ideas to help
you form your own Mother Daughter Project group.  I’m looking into
this for myself and my daughter.  Expect more posts about this project
in the future.

Secondly, I would like to recommend the Successful Stepfamilies
for stepparents and stepfamilies.  This organization empowers
remarried couples and stepfamilies for successful family living and
equips churches to minister to stepcouples.

Successful Stepfamilies is hosting a conference in early November.  I
have witnessed Founder and President Ron Deal inform and entertain
an audience. He exudes a passion for stepfamilies that is contagious,
and he encourages his audiences by telling them what they’re doing

“Building A Successful Stepfamily” Conference
November 7-8, 2008
Colorado Springs, Colorado 
Host & Location:  Woodman Valley Chapel
