I had the pleasure of getting to know authors Blythe Daniel and Helen McIntosh several years ago. They are some of the kindest, authentic people you’d ever meet! Their book, Mended, is a great resource for anybody that wants to strengthen their mother-daughter relationship. What an important relationship and what a great resource!
“Ever wonder why mothers and daughters can be so different and even seem to speak different languages?
Mended gives you conversation starters to speak life into your relationship with your mother or daughter. Discover powerful words that usher in healing for wounded hearts and rebuild, restore, and reconcile your connection.
Set new patterns going forward as you…
- find common ground and put your relationship ahead of your differences
- learn what to say when you don’t know what to say
- grow closer when you do hard things together
If you have a difficult history with your mother or daughter, you don’t have to continue patterns of brokenness. No matter how worn you feel, you don’t have to become unthreaded. God wants to mend your heart to His and to hers.”
I am captivated by the premise of this book: you can trade stress and anxiety for a life of peace and purpose. Author Rebekah Lyons does a great job of weaving encouraging stories and practical steps to begin an intentional, lifelong journey toward sustained emotional, relational, and spiritual health. If there is anything we need, it’s sustained, true health.
Atlanta Fish Market is one of our favorite upscales restaurants to go to. Laura loves all things seafood, especially raw oysters, crab legs, and sea bass. I don’t eat a lot of seafood, but AFM has a fantastic fried lobster tail meal that I love! Pro tip: buy The Ultimate Dining Card. You get a 10% bonus each time you reload this card — essentially giving you 10% off each meal. The card works at some of Atlanta’s best restaurants.
