Maybe you’re a bride-to-be who is about to gain a mother-in-law. Perhaps you’re a mother-of-the-groom who is about to gain a daughter-in-law, or maybe you’ve been in an in-law relationship that’s been struggling in painful tension for years. No matter your age or stage, every daughter-in-law and mother-in-law needs help navigating their relationship.

Whether the struggle is one of feeling unseen, unheard, or unvalued, the authors and in-laws, Barbara and Stacy Reaoch, have been there and put the Bible’s wisdom to practice. As you walk alongside them in their own 20-year journey and lessons learned, prepare to be encouraged and equipped in these areas:

  • Expectations
  • Conflict
  • Suffering
  • Communication
  • Parenting

With the Bible as your foundation and this book as a helpful companion in the journey, take heart: a healthier relationship with your mother-in-law or daughter-in-law is closer than you think!
