By V. Mason-robinson on June 20, 2005
Format: Paperback
I believe this is an excellent book. My mother in law and I had a big fallout after my daughter was born. If I had read this book beforehand it may have alleviated some of the tension we have now. It talks about establishing boundaries of a new family, respecting or rejecting advice, overcoming conflict, forgiveness,and of course your husband and how she feels pushed out of this new unit or family. I like the biblical references, God's standard is high. We might not achieve that "Ruth and Naomi" relationship but it gives something to aim for...For me personally, it's going to take time to heal the rift we have but I'm trying and the book helps. My motherin law said some really mean things. I intend to be married to my husband until death do us parts and I want to have a half way decent relationship for my husband but also my child andof course ME. When you don't forgive the only person you're hurting is yourself. You can't let the bittnerness consume you.

For ten years of my married life, I searched for a resource that would help me understand the dynamics of an in-law relationship. The books I found only had a paragraph or two on the in-law relationship. I needed something more substantial. I did Internet searches on how to get along with in-laws and was appalled by the hurtful words women used to describe their in-law relationships. After pouring hours (and years) into the search, I gave up. I concluded there were no resources to fill my need. At the Christian book store my eye caught this book because it had those socially stigmatized words on the front cover: "Mother-In-Law." I did not expect it to provide much insight since my previous searches were dead-ends. On the contrary, this book provides plenty of insight for both daughter-in-law and mother-in-law.

In this book, Annie Chapman demonstrates how a daughter-in-law or mother-in-law can love each other despite differences and how to forgive hurts. She deeply understands that the relationship between these two women is one of the most delicate and valuable of all family connections. She uses several stories as examples throughout the book from the women she interviewed.

I enjoyed the chapter about how to speak with in-laws without hurting your husband or yourself. We have a Christian responsibility to love our in-laws. One way to show that love is to control the tongue. Controlling the tongue avoids having to apologize for unkind, untrue, or unnecessary words. "If families would eliminate gossip, reject judgment, and season conversations with good, wholesome communication, think what a pleasant and safe place all of our homes would be" (pg 45).

This book has really helped me out a lot in my relationship with my Mother-in-Law. It makes both sides step back and really look at the situation and try to understand where the other person is coming from. It doesn't bash or put down either one. I would recommend it to every mother-in-law and daughter-in-law!

I was looking for a book to show me that my mother-in-law was was wrong and I was right with our relationship. But it instead re-grounded me with the Biblical understanding of truths about our relationship. A wonderful book to read!

Since my husband and I have been so close to our only child--a son, I wanted to read this book after he got married. It is filled with valuable ideas and I have purchased several copies to give to friends to help them be a good mother-in-law.

The book was in excellent shape. I enjoyed reading this book, and even shared some of the info with my son and his wife, my daughter-in-law. I know that the information in this book will make our relationship even that much stronger.
