A Wonderful Resource!
This book is definitely one that should be listed if there is ever a Required Reading List for Mother/Daughter Relationships! It covers so many issues that occur between mothers and daughters during the different stages of their lives. You often hear mothers's say "Oh, she's being a typical teenager" and you see teen daughters who roll their eyes and perhaps make snide remarks about their moms and these moments shouldn't be taken lightly. They can actually be the beginning of serious hurts and even estrangement. Mended offers many examples that occur during our lives and this is why I love this book so much. We are shown how to overcome the hurts and begin the healing process before the damage becomes an irreparable situation. The authors have filled this book with thoughtful observations, wonderful advice and best of all, a liberal amount of God's Word. I especially like that each of the chapters end with a Mending Thread and a Making It Personal section to help us analyze our own situations. There are eleven chapters and I found myself especially drawn to chapter 3: Saying What When: Words to Love and Live By and chapter 10: Restoring Your Heart. I believe that many people struggle with finding the right words and I also know that my heart often needs to be restored! One of McIntosh's observations spoke expecially to me in chapter 10. On page 169 she states "As we work through layers of our relationship with our mother or daughter and restore hearts, we need to become restored to God with our own heart. There are two kinds of restoration of the heart: toward God and then towards others". My own mother is with Jesus but I still have my relationships with my daughter, my fellow man and my Heavenly Father. Blythe Daniel and her mother Helen McIntosh have opened their hearts and exposed their own relationship in an effort to help all of us in ours. I consider Mended: Restoring the Hearts of Mothers and Daughters to be a wonderful resource and I will certainly recommend it to others. In fact, I have purchased an extra copy to share!
A great book about mending or restoring your relationship with your mom or daughter. Helpful advice for all stages of relationships, including great conversation starters that can help you open up conversations if your relationship is rocky right now. Great tips that can help any meaningful relationship.

Blythe and Helen write in such a way it feels like we are part of the family talking around the dinner table. These women approach the mother-daughter relationship with honesty, humility, and grace. Through real stories and experiences, they share Godly insight and wisdom that we can readily apply to our own relationships. For the woman who desires a healthy relationship with their mother or daughter, Mended is the resource is for you.
