Developing a Good Mother-Daughter Relationship (Episode 87)
On this week’s “You’ve Got This,” I talk with Blythe Daniel and Dr. Helen McIntosh about the sometimes tricky relationships between moms and daughters. Blythe is a literary agent and marketer with more than 20 years of experience in publishing. She has written for Proverbs 31 Ministries, Focus on the Family, Ann Voskamp, Christian Retailing, and she links bloggers with readers through the agency’s blog network. The daughter of Dr. Helen McIntosh, she lives in Colorado with her husband and three children. Dr. Helen McIntosh (EdD, Counseling Psychology) is a counselor, speaker, educator, and author of Messages to Myself and Eric, Jose & The Peace Rug. Her work has appeared in Guideposts, ParentLife, and HomeLife magazines. She resides in Georgia with her husband Jim. They have two children and five grandchildren. “What my mom and I learned about our relationship with each other is that we realized we had done things healthier than we realized,” Blythe said. “That came because of intentional work and effort in our relationship.” “We stumbled on life-giving principles that I believe can help other women with their broken dreams and their broken conversations with one another,” Helen said. “Blythe and I have appreciated so much the positive things that have happened in our relationship, and our hope has been to help others.” Listen to the podcast for more insights and suggestions about how to have a good relationship with your mom or daughter—or both.
