What is one activity/interest you share with your MIL/DIL where you really connect?
Bonnie responds –
There are very few things we share in common…my husband and the Bible are about it.
So, when moved into the basement apartment for a season of transitioning back from VA, I asked my MIL if she would like to do a Bible study together 1 day a week.
It has been very good.
She loves the Catholic faith more than the Bible and when she isn’t trying to convert me back to Catholicism, we have a great time. I have always known her dislike of me, much less so in the recent years. So, I decided that, if we met in some neutral place, a place that is far–reaching, in the soul, a place that changes hearts (hers and mine, if we are willing ), then there would be a bridge built. It has reinforced WHO WE ANSWER TO and that has proven to be priceless.
We have come a looong way in 32+ yrs.
