Today, we’re talking about how to “deal” with your in-laws so you can have the best relationship possible. I’m so excited because my friend (and fellow Ramsey Personality) Dr. John Delony joins us to talk about navigating relationships in our lives. Then, we’ll spend some time journaling about what we can do to apply this truth to our lives.

 

5 Rules to Have the Best Relationship With Your In-laws

There's one particular relationship that research shows is the hardest of all: the relationship between a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law. I've even done some reading on this because I'm asked about it so much. People really struggle with their relationship with their in-laws.

That’s why I worked with my own mother-in-law to come up with five rules for improving your relationship. If both people do this, the relationship will improve:

  1. Appreciate everything.
  2. Invest in the relationship.
  3. Communicate.
  4. Be confident.
  5. Put yourself in their shoes.

 

Why Relationships Are So Hard with John Delony

I’m so excited because Dr. John Delony joins us in studio to talk about navigating our relationships with our in-laws. Y’all, this is good stuff. We cover everything from marriage and setting boundaries to learning how to communicate well so we can have the best relationships possible. I hope you lean in and take away some great tips that will help you navigate and pour into the relationships in your own life.

 

Let’s Talk About Your In-Laws

“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” – 1 Peter 4:8 (NIV)

How many things would be solved if we just loved each other? How many things would be easier if we just thought of how we could show love? It's so easy to get frustrated with family and take them for granted, but family’s also a sacred relationship and a role that no one else gets to fill. That's why it's on us to lead the relationship. Don't sit back and take a passive approach. We have an opportunity to love first. So, I've got a few questions for you as you process this and think about how to apply it to your own life:

  1. What are 10 things you’re grateful for about your in-laws?
  2. What’s one healthy boundary you want to set and communicate with your in-laws?
  3. What’s one way you're going to show love to your in-laws this week?

We’re continuing our journey to get back to you today with Part 4: Knowing Where You’re Going. We’re going to dive into what God says about your future. Then the always amazing and hilarious Patsy Clairmont joins us to share her valuable wisdom. Finally, we’ll take some time to journal and work through what this means for our lives. Let’s go!

 

Why You Should Get Your Hopes Up About the Future

“You don’t have to guard your heart with me.”

That’s what God told me one Sunday morning in church as I kept trying to push back something I wanted so badly. It felt selfish, and it felt greedy. So, I kept pushing it away.

And there, as I was worshiping in church, I felt this gentle whisper: “Get your hopes up? I’m the God of hope.” In the middle of that moment, I was truly transformed. And it wasn't about getting what I wanted. It was about understanding how God feels about me, my heart and my desires.

So, get your hopes up. He created your heart. He knows what to do with every desire He’s given you. And He knows what to do with every broken piece when you're disappointed. He’s the God of hope. There’s something so powerful that happens when you own your desires, open your heart, and are honest with God about who you are and what you want.

 

Is Fear Holding You Back with Patsy Clairmont

I’m so excited because today, I’m sitting down with one of my favorite authors, speakers, and Bible teachers, Patsy Clairmont. I love her, and I know you will too. Patsy and I covered a lot of ground, but here are some highlights:

  • Getting our hopes up with God
  • Owning your disappointment
  • Being obedient in the small things

 

Stop Guarding Your Heart

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” — Romans 15:13 (NIV)

Our God is a God of hope. Of course, we should get our hopes up because our hope isn't in ourselves. It's not in our circumstances or our situation. Our hope is in God, who is the God of hope. You don't have to pull yourself up by your bootstraps. You don't have to be a good Christian, check all the boxes, or do your Bible study every day for God to meet you where you are and fill you with hope. You and I have every reason to get our hopes up because our God is the God of hope. And through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can actually overflow with hope.

Take some time to sit and pray and answer these questions:

  1. How have you been guarding your heart from God?
  2. What dreams and desires do you have right now?
  3. Write down a prayer of trust and faith and hope and give those desires to God.

Your life is marked not just by seasons, but by different aspects of your life in a particular season. Today, we’re talking about where you are in your current season of life. My good friend, hilarious storyteller, and brilliant bible teacher Lisa Harper joins us to talk about gaining perspective from the season you’re in. Then we’ll dig a little bit deeper with some journal questions.

 

Are You Letting THIS Define Who You Are?

Your life is marked not just by seasons, but by different aspects of your life in a particular season. Our lives happen in the blink of an eye. And the season we're in—whether it's an awesome season or a really hard season, or one that we’re loving or we’re ready to get out of—is just a season.

It might feel like it defines you. It might feel like it's going to be forever. But it doesn't, and it's not. I don't know what season you're in, but I'm here to remind you that you’re so much more than the season that you’re in. Your identity is not calculated by the season or your circumstances in your life. And when you remember that, refocus on that, and build your life on that truth, you actually can find strength and grace to get through it.

 

How to Get Through Hard Seasons With Lisa Harper

I’m so excited because one of my favorite people in the world, Lisa Harper, is joining us. Lisa is an author, brilliant Bible teacher, and hilarious storyteller. Lisa and I dive into the topic of seasons and how to know where you are without losing your identity. We cover a lot of ground, but here are the highlights:

  • You’re not the season you’re in.
  • You can find strength to get through hard seasons.
  • In the economy of God, pain is usually a promotion.

 

Are You in a Tough Season? Watch This.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” –Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV)

There’s a time for everything. There’s a time to start something and a time to end. There’s a time for every season under the heavens. So I want to ask you a few questions to help you process where you are in your season:

  1. What season are you in right now? How would you describe it?
  2. How does it feel?
  3. Where do you need discernment right now?
  4. How do you help yourself remember that you’re not the season you’re in?

Between endless errands and an overwhelming schedule, it’s easy to feel like you’ve lost yourself. That's why I wrote my brand-new devotional, Living True: 40 Days to Get Back to You, to help you break through the busyness of life and find confidence in the woman you were created to be.

I want to be true to me. And I want you to live true to you as well. So, today, we’re talking about how to live true to you. Jamie Ivey, my good friend and bestselling author, joins us to talk about her new book, You Be You. Then, we’ll open up our journals and dive into what it really means to be loved and live true to ourselves.

 

Why You’re Not Who You Think You Are

It’s so important for us to get to the root of our identity to know who we truly are. But so often, we look to others to tell us who we are. We look at the world around us and look at our roles and responsibilities and titles to find our sense of identity. But as wonderful as some of those roles and responsibilities and relationships are, they do not define you. The world can never tell you who you are. There’s only one place that you can find the true source of your identity.

We can’t live a life true to ourselves if we don't first look to the one who gave us life to begin with. You’re so much more than those roles and responsibilities. Sure, those things are wonderful blessings in your life, but they’re not everything. They don't define you, and they aren’t the single source of your identity. If one of those things changes, you need to know that you’re still enough. You still have value. God says that you’re created, and you’re chosen. He made you, and He doesn’t make mistakes. You’re adored. You’re loved. He delights in you. And He’s with you and wants to spend time with you.

You’re loved by the God of the universe. That’s who you are.

 

Are You Struggling to Be Yourself? With Jamie Ivey

I’m so excited because Jamie Ivey is joining us in the studio today to dive deeper into this topic of knowing who you really are. She also shares more about her brand-new book, You Be You. Here are a few topics from our conversation:

  • Balancing contentment and ambition
  • The secret to staying rooted in your identity
  • Combatting comparison
  • Living with purpose in seasons of waiting
  • Redefining success in our lives

 

What God Wishes You Knew

“Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.” Isaiah 64:8 (NIV)

We’re made in the image of God. We’re a product of His creation. It's so easy to look at all of our flaws and failures, mistakes and missteps, and all the ways we've gotten it wrong and messed up. But there's also something really beautiful about the fact that God created us, and He doesn’t make mistakes.

I think about how many wonderful things I love about my kids, and how many things I want for them, and how proud I am of them. But for some reason, translating that to the God of the universe—that He could love me more than that—that's so hard to wrap my mind around. Take some time to answer these questions today:

  1. If you have children, how do you feel about them? If you don't have children, think about people in your life that you love so much. How do you feel about them?
  2. What do you hope they know about themselves?
  3. This is more of a challenge: I want you to take what you wrote down as an answer for your first and second questions, and I want you to write down every one of those statements as truth about you from your Heavenly Father. Let that sink into your spirit, then let yourself live from that truth.
