Ron: Hey kids, I’ve got a question for you. Was Jesus a stepchild?

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

Ron: You know over the years I’ve asked a lot of people that question and it surprises me how many people have never considered it. But think about it, Jesus was raised by his mother and his stepdad, Joseph. Now it’s true the circumstances surrounding his birth were definitely different than yours but still if you have a stepparent you can consider Jesus someone who very much understands.

Wow, how cool is that. You have a friend who has been there done that. So kids talk to him. We call it praying. Tell him your joys, your frustrations, your worries, your concerns. He’s listening. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
