A Bond of Blessing: Insights From The Book Of Ruth by Jaime Farkas,
is a book written for Mother-in-laws and Daughter-in-laws.
So many women find themselves fighting with their mother-in-laws, feeling like they are trying to rule everything and are being given more advice then ever needed. And some mother-in-laws feel their daughter-in-laws need that motherly person hounding over them making sure they're doing what they think they should be doing. Either direction it goes, one or both get very tiresome of each other.
In a Bond of Blessing, Farkas talks about the story of Ruth and Naomi, and their relationship as in-laws. Naomi didn't want her son marrying Ruth and Ruth didn't like Naomi, but after some time, they found themselves loyal to each other and accepting each other as they should.
Now days, the relationship between a daughter and her mother-in-law is so far separated; and society portrays a terrible view how the relationship should be. You know, where the mother-in-law is annoying and constantly wants to tell you how to live your life. Or where the daughter-in-law despises her mother-in-law and constantly bad talks her...It doesn't have to be this way! You're relationship can be exactly what God made it to be. A great read for mothers and daughters.
Me as a daughter (and a mother) I found this book to have some helpful points. Unfortunately I have never officially "met" my mother-in-law, as we're states away, so our relationship has been through phone and internet, but I have been blessed with a mother-in-law who knows her "boundaries" haha. That sounded bad. What I mean though, is she is respectful and tells me what she thinks I need to know, but doesn't over do it. And me as a mother, I know someday my 5 year old son will be 35, and probably married by then..so I will then become the mother-in-law of a daughter! This book will be helpful in those times. But I don't want to rush it ;)
