A writer for Family Life recently said, “Disappointed love can occur at any point in your marriage, even after times of peak romance and unusual oneness. When love disappointed, as it does for all of us, don’t give up.”
Has love disappointed you?
Been disillusioned with marriage?
Doubt your “family” expectations won’t happen?
Take heart from our friend, Kirk McGregor and his story.
I had the privilege of meeting you and your wife at the Hope Fellowship Blended Family (live via satellite) event in April 2017.
My wife (Lori) and I have been married for 6 years and 3 months. We have 4 children (hers & his). Lori has twins (Sarah and Matthew – 18 years) and I have two children (Alex – 11 ½ years and Abby – 10 years).
We met on eHarmony in July 2011 and were married 7 months later. We currently live in the Lake Highlands area of Dallas and attend Watermark Community Church. Lori is an OB/GYN practicing at Medical City Dallas and I am a part-time stay-at-home dad as well as seminary student at Dallas Theological Seminary. I am about ½ to my Masters Degree in Christian Leadership and plan on using my education and experience to further develop a Blended Family ministry at Watermark. Currently, I am (acting) as one of the main ministry contacts, along with four other leader couples.
I’ve been reaching out to a few Blended Family contacts to partner with them in creating ministry supports nation-wide. Ron L. Deal has been a tremendous help to Watermark as the curriculum is based on his The Smart Step-Family book. In addition, I have had a conference call with Willie Scott (Better Than Blended) and am looking to connect with other Blended Family groups across the country.
I am grateful for what you have done with your ministry and am blessed that you’re local.
Thank you for your continued prayers for Craig & Gina and Blended Together Forever. We are grateful and love you all. Our events page lists all our Fall Events. You are helping us make the family WHOLE again!
