BLENDED AND BLESSED FAMILIES (FOCUSED LIVING - For Men and Women)
Purpose/Overview: Some common blindsides occur when blended married couples believe that stepfamilies are just like first families and discover their stepfamily is very different from anything they've ever experienced. They realize they don't have the tools to successfully manage their home. Smart blended family couples however don't get blindsided; they see it coming. They study the qualities of successful blended families and work at their marriages. They overcome well intended but misguided assumptions with "street smarts" and they are doing fine. Join us on this eight-week journey in a focus study where we can come together and see what God has planned for our blended families.

Purpose/Overview: Like every little girl, Sarah Jakes dreamed of a life full of love, laughter and happy endings. But her dreams changed dramatically when she became pregnant at age 13 and the reality compounded by the fact that her father, Bishop T.D.

She could have let her pain dictate her future, but instead she found herself surrounded by a God she'd given up on. Perhaps like Sarah, you find yourself wandering the detours of life. Regardless of how you feel, you too can be found. Let us take the journey in this seven-week study together.
