"We came to Mike and Kim discouraged...through the coaching we received, we were able to set goals for our marriage and understand the dynamics of our blended family scenario. Our circumstances continue to improve because Mike and Kim helped us develop a successful plan to move forward through strengthening our marriage bond and to use better tools to engage our teens in the new blended family."

After 17 years of experiencing our own stepfamily journey, we've faced plenty of challenging pressures. The relational pressures of striving to connect. The financial pressures of a three year family court battle. The parental pressures and heartache of watching our children struggle. The emotional pressures of past hurts and hang-ups. The marital pressures of trying to 'make our family work'. All of these pressures nearly tore our marriage - our family - apart. But we chose not to give up.
Along the way, we've discovered a path through the pressures. We've developed a clear understanding of the hidden issues that are a part of the common stepfamily experience. We've learned strategies that have given us confidence to keep moving forward. We've learned to lead our stepfamily toward meaningful connection.
"We completely appreciate Mike & Kim's heart, respect their own stepfamily story and learned a lot from them that directly impacted our family...even 7 years into the journey! They do a great job of giving access to the best research, coaching advice and practical skills that are out there for stepfamilies....and they deliver it with such hope and clarity. Mike & Kim's class is important for a blended family’s harmony. The return on investment will be huge. Don’t miss this opportunity to invest in your family’s emotional health and happiness."
