Today we’re going to be talking about how to improve mother/daughter relationships and the hope available for restoration and reconciliation. Mother/daughter relationships can be so painful, and especially with Mother’s Day coming up, we can have a tendency to mourn what we don’t have in our own mother/daughter relationship. If you struggle in your mother/daughter relationship, or have been desiring an improved relationship, then you’ll want to stick this program out to the last minute. Experts in mother/daughter relationship reconciliation and restoration, Blythe Daniel and Dr. Helen McIntosh join us to share what they learned, and the lessons they penned in “Mended: Restoring the Hearts of Mothers and Daughters.”
Blythe shares more about restoring mother daughter relationships in: The Package of Words: A Gift for Mom.

What a wonderful message!!! Thank you, Michelle, Blythe and Dr. Helen, for sharing from your own lives and such great encouragement and tools for restoration of mother/daughter relationships. My mom is gone now and we did have a loving relationship but not a close relationship due to her depression all my life but I purposed in my heart and mind to have a close, personal, healthy relationship with my daughter. We went through some issues when she was a teen but she knew of my love and concern for her. Our relationship now is very precious to me because I learned to love and release her to be the women God wanted her to be not what I wanted her to be. Your message, words spoken and tools to have a healthy relationship are so valuable for us. I would love to read Blythe and Dr. Helen’s book sometime and glean from their years of experience and challenges. I appreciate you, Michelle, for sharing this Hope-Filled Perspective.
