Do you feel like being a stepmom is this dirty little secret that no one wants to talk about? 
Do you feel like an outsider in your own home?
Do you feel like this is harder than you thought it was going to be, and everyone is telling you, "This is what you signed up for"?
Do you feel like you give, give, give and YOUR needs are the last on the totem pole?
Do you feel like you relationship with your step-kids is not playing out how you imagined it would?
Do you feel like your life is consumed by ex-wife drama?
Do you feel like no one understands?

Do you feel like things need to change, but you have no idea where to start?

After finding myself hanging on to her every word written, I knew I had to get in contact with Jamie! She seemed to know me & relate to my situation before we had even communicated! Her real-life stepfamily experiences were so helpful. I have put her suggestions into practice & still reference our last email often. In this crazy world of step parenting, it’s amazing to have support from someone like Jamie to help navigate!

I came across The Poptart Diaries one night when I was anxiously trying to find some positive feedback or success stories about young stepmoms on the internet. I was getting worried because I felt like everywhere I looked, I found negative stories about being the “wicked stepmom”. but the second I opened up The Poptart Diaries I felt completely relieved. I felt like someone truly understood what I was going through, I was thrilled. I emailed Jamie and I got the most heartfelt response ever. We talked regularly and she gave me some amazing advice that I will never forget. She was the friend I needed at the time I can’t thank her enough for that. She reassured me through rough times and listened when I was worried about the unknown future. She is a great coach and without her I don’t know where I would be. I highly recommend Jamie to anyone entering a relationship with a single dad or considering a role as a stepmom. Step parenting can be tricky some days but at the end of the day blood isn’t what a family is made of; love is

In addition, Jamie is warm, relatable and has a great sense of humour, which can be so refreshing when you’re in the midst of stepfamily stressors. Jamie will no doubt provide incredible support for stepfamilies

Jamie is honest but loving... It is so refreshing to hear the truth about step parenting raising kids, and her relationship with her husband instead of the cookie cutter answers that so many people give out. Step Parenting is one of the hardest jobs on this planet, I never gave it much through until I became one. There is so many angles you have to come at on a daily basis, that can leave you feeling alone, scared and feeling like failure. Jamie’s advice and honest words allow me to stop taking it so seriously and know that I am not in this crazy co-parenting boat alone. Many thanks...
