This is the go-to book for any woman who wants to succeed as a stepmother. Authors Kathi Lipp and Carol Boley, stepmoms themselves, offer straight talk to help women blend two families into a cohesive unit.
Every chapter captures a realistic view of stepmotherhood and offers plenty of help and hope on making it work!
You’ll learn from a wide range of topics how to:
~ define your role in the family ~ protect your marriage
~ seek and accept forgiveness ~ connect to God’s heart
There’s nothing more soothing and hope-infusing than someone who’s been there. Enter Kathi Lipp. Mom, stepmom, Jesus-lover, maker of mistakes and learner of tough lessons. When it comes to stepmothering, she’s “been there, done that,” and lived to tell.
Through these pages, she will certainly pass along some valuable lessons and practical advice. Takes notes, talk about it with a friend, give it a whirl and see if it works. But more than the how-tos, by the time you read the last page, you will know you’re not alone.

“This is a must have for every Christian stepmom and I only wish I had this book 28 years ago when I married the ‘World’s Greatest Fighter Pilot’ and inherited beautiful 6 year old and 8 year old daughters. This well researched and well-written book is so comprehensive for all aspects of successful step parenting. While the topics are often difficult, the delivery of the wise content is done with such humor that you find yourself navigating those turbulent waters with less drama.”
