I'm deeming this "In-Law Week," but it may turn into "Weeks" because I have several great guest posts and comments lined up to share with you. There is so much negativity out there regarding this relationship, so I hope we can redeem it somewhat in this space. What we won't do, however, is give a check-list of "How to Be a Great Mother-in-Law" or "Daughter-in-Law." It's not that simple, or rather it's actually much simpler. When the love of Christ invades our hearts, all relationships are radically changed. No check-list will produce heart change, but being adopted by our Father and loved by Christ so dearly can change even the hardest heart.
So this week the posts you'll read here are not about women we should all try to emulate. Rather, they are examples of what the love of Christ can do. He's done it in other hearts and relationships, and hopefully reading these accounts will give hope that He can do it in your situation as well.
The guest posts will start tomorrow, but first I want to invite you to participate by writing a post about your own mother-in-law or daughter-in-law and sharing the link in the comments this week. Or, feel free to just leave a comment telling us about what God has done in your life through your in-laws. I think it would be so encouraging to read these things, even if they are in difficult circumstances. He works through those too. Thanks for joining us and I pray you'll be encouraged!
