It’s 2019! What’s New?

New Look of Stepmomming

New Stepmomming Mission

We provide comfort and guidance to overwhelmed stepmoms by giving them the tools and inspiration they need to overcome insecurities and discontentment. We show them that stepmomming is what they do and not who they are, encouraging them to embrace their unique roles and truly love their lives.

New Stepmomming Vision

To ensure no stepmom feels like she’s doing this alone, to reverse the negative association with the word stepmom, and to provide stepmoms with the tools they need to THRIVE instead of merely survive.

What to Look Forward to in 2019

  • MORE content! We’ll continue to post twice a week, Tuesday and Friday.
  • MORE collaborations! There are some exciting partnerships already in the works.
  • MORE focus on each aspect of stepmom life! Because we believe that stepmomming is what you do, not who you are, we’ll be sharing more about every part of stepmom life.
  • MORE products to help you get organized and make sense of this crazy blended family life!
  • MORE interaction! We’ll be going live in our Facebook community Stepmomming Ain’t Easy once per week, and I already have a Dallas stepmoms night out in the planning stages!

We Need Your Help!

Help us improve Stepmomming to meet your needs this year!

It has been a pleasure to serve you the last two years, and I can’t wait to see how we’ll grow together in 2019!

xoxo,
