“Moe & Paige Becnel founded BAF out of their passion to see all Blended Families find God’s plan and God’s best for their lives. Knowing that traditional marriage counseling may not address the complex issues exclusive to many Blended Families, BAF ministry focuses on the potential causes and effective solutions that lead to a successful, thriving family.”

Doing Whatever It Takes Ministry
“Dr. Donald Partridge and his wife Jenetha are the proud parents/stepparents of a highly successful blending stepfamily of seven children. When Don and Jenetha met and married, they were both single parents, Don with two children and Jenetha with three. With the addition of two of their own, their blending family became truly, “Yours, mine, and ours.” As a result of interacting with other single parents and stepfamilies, Don and Jenetha realized that their personal experiences and difficulties were shared by many other single parents and stepfamilies. In 1989 they both committed their future life’s work to providing knowledgeable, well-researched, practical solutions for single parents and stepfamilies.”
