It’s a challenge to find positive online posts on in-law relationships. That’s one of the reasons I post the stories of women from all over who share their experiences – lessons from which other MILs and DILs can gain.
If you google “positive in-law blog posts”, you’ll probably only come up with a few sites and most of these are magazine articles or those written by psychologists. After reading a few “venting” blogs about “crazy” mothers-in-law – which was very discouraging – I found this treasure trove of great ideas and practical, encouraging suggestions on building and maintaining healthy, real in-law relationships. In my opinion, most of these principles and practices could work for non-Christians even though the articles are on a Christian website.
There’s a lot of material there – 10 articles – but even a few “take-aways” will make it worth the read. Pace yourself – perhaps an article a week? Or maybe all of them at one sitting?! It’s your call.
