Ron: What Father’s Day gift do you give the man who stepped in when your dad stepped out?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: I love it. Year after year around Father’s Day I hear stories of stepdads who stepped in and stepped up. My biological father used his feet to run away. My stepdad planted his two feet firmly in my life. Or…thanks to the man who taught me to ride a bike and drive a car. And another…I know you didn’t’ have all the answers and worried about your daughter and I not getting along, but still you gave us your all.

So, what do you give the stepdad/bonus dad/double-dad in your life for stepping in? A great big hug. Happy Father’s Day from FamilyLife Blended. I’m Ron Deal.
