A Different Perspective Around Stepfamilies

The Ultimate Stepfamily Summit:
September 14, 15 & 16

You deserve unprecedented access to a select group of trusted experts with firsthand knowledge of stepfamily life's hiccups and heartaches. Having been in your shoes, our presenters launched their practices with a mission to help others navigate the challenges, dynamics and stressors unique to families like ours. 

Back in the day? There were no role models to follow. There were no books or magazines on the topic. There were no programs or seminars to enroll in. In short, there was nowhere to turn for answers we desperately needed. Now that there is, give yourself (and your loved ones) the "Ultimate" gift. Register today!

What makes our event
The Ultimate Stepfamily Summit?

We'll let our happy attendees answer that one!

"This is my first time attending the Stepfamily Summit, so I was not sure exactly what to expect. I have not been disappointed. I am grateful that Claudette is getting help out there for stepmoms, like myself. Now I am in the step-grandmother phase, which has been a blessing. I wish I had access to this type of information 27 years ago when I remarried and had a blended family of seven. All the speakers have been great!

Susan - Stepmom

Thank you for dreaming up and producing this event. Every stepfamily faces its own unique challenges, but the speakers and resources you have brought together speak to the difficulties we all face. The summit has given me comfort for past hard times, strategies to try in the present, and hope for the future of my family. Thank you.

5 stars!!!

You managed to give us the highest caliber of speakers again this year. I swear to God it gets better year after year!

Well done Claudette and the whole Stepfamily Summit team and speakers!

The Summit Changed My Life

I happened upon your summit by chance and I can honestly say it has changed our life.

My partner and I both felt so alone in our step family struggles but having listened to the summit interviews we are so much clearer in our emotions, frustrations, failings and (most importantly) our next steps.

For the first time in 5 years I feel positive about our future as a blended family. We will never be perfect but we will be happy. Thank you so much.

Huge Amount of Wisdom

I enjoyed all the videos, there was a huge amount of wisdom in all the words shared.

Thank you!

💖Basically I'm delighted there's a safe healthy community for stepfamilies!

You're the best!

On a Personal Note 
by Claudette Chenevert
Host, Producer, Presenter

Having been a stepparent for 30+ years, let me tell you: I get how hard it can be! My two stepdaughters are adults now and so is my son, whom my husband helped raise as his stepdad. Sure, some aspects of stepfamily life get easier, but the challenges never end.

I created The Ultimate Stepfamily Summit with YOU in mind—plain and simple—with a goal of helping you ride out the ups and downs of stepfamily life with greater knowledge, resources and grace.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to say "Hi!" while attending the 3rd Ultimate Stepfamily Summit.
