Aug 9, 2022 | Daughter, Family, Forgiveness, Love, Marriage, Mothers, Newlywed, Podcast, Spiritual Game Plan

How would you say your current relationship with your mother-in-law or daughter-in-law is going?

The mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law are notorious for tension and strife. But, this bond can be a special blessing from the Lord.  

Today, I talk with MiL/DiL pair Barb Reaoch and Stacy Reaoch about their experience in their respective roles. As I prepare to gain the title of mother-in-law in just a couple of short weeks, Barb and Stacy share valuable advice on making the most out of our in-law relationships. 

“So asking questions is a way of not putting a burden on my daughter-in-law and Galatians 6:2 tells us to carry each others’ burdens, not lay more burdens on her.” Barbara Reaoch

Listen in as Barbara and Stacy show us:

The four ways they have built a tender and supportive relationship over the past 20 years.

What a gift the relationship between mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law can be if we ask for God’s help in cultivating love and respect for each other.


Share Your Thoughts

If you are currently in either of these roles, would you share with me one way that you show love to your in-law?
