Ecclesiastes 4:12New King James Version (NKJV)
12 Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.
And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

WHY BRAIDED FAMILIESTM? It's our Christian faith-based option to serve the brethren.
Two strands are stronger than one. Wrapped together, each strand of the rope clings to the other for strength. What happens when a rope's two strands (representing a couple) are pulled from the bottom? (This pulling represents stress related to the challenges couples leading stepfamilies face). A rope unravels and the two that were joined together, no longer cleaving one to the other, have become separate strands again.
Now, let us consider the restoration and strength of God available to His church - the body of believers and followers of Christ.
If you were to pick up the two strands and add a third one (representing God), when you weave them together a braid results. The first two strands are brought closer together by the third which has wrapped itself around and between the two. A braid tightens when it is pulled from the bottom. So it can be with God at the center of our relationships; He is able to strengthen us when we allow Him to go between and around all our circumstances.

"We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ."
