Announcing: Real Helps for the Military Stepfamily!


Todd and Tammy Gangl recently joined FamilyLife, bringing their years of experience working with Ron Deal of FamilyLife Blended, forming their own ministry, Joseph Stepfamily Ministries and creating their own materials, Real Steps. But they joined FamilyLife because of their desire to provide a military perspective to the unique challenges of military life for the military stepfamily. Todd characterizes those challenges as "The 3Ds":


  • Demands;
  • Distance;
  • Deployments.

  • children over the age of 11.
  • The seminar openly and honestly addresses what it takes to be a healthy military stepfamily by using
    • a humorous military style Bootcamp experience;
    • multi-media presentations;
    • audience participation;
    • family role-playing, and
    • a stepfamily oath of office!


Upon seminar graduation, each family will have completed their own stepfamily care plan and worked together as a team to develop the tools they will need to face the unique challenges of military life.
