Item description for A Daughter's Journey Home: Finding a Way to Love, Honor and Connect with Your Mother by Linda Mintle...

This title tells of finding a way to love, honor, and connect with one's mother.

Publishers Description
Many women can identify with the sentiment, "I love my mom, BUT . . ." A Daughter's Journey Home pinpoints commonly faced issues with moms and daughters while giving practical insight on how to make connections with Mom that will stand the test of time.

From Publishers Weekly
From her perspective as a Christian therapist with more than 20 years of experience in private practice, Mintle (Divorce-Proofing Your Marriage, etc.) examines the difficulties inherent in the mother-daughter relationship as conventionally defined within U.S. culture. Addressed to women of all ages who want to forge a more intimate connection with their female parent, the author provides useful tools for coping with emotions and situations (beyond anger at obviously dysfunctional parenting) that prevent closeness, including a daughter's extreme need for approval or an inability to detach emotionally from her mother (leading either to very distant or excessively close connections). Mintle's practical advice is always alloyed by spiritual guidance. Anger-management techniques, for example, such as avoiding "nonessential triggers," talking problems over with friends and learning how to be assertive are presented along with appropriate verses drawn from the Bible. In addition to more active strategies, Mintle consistently recommends prayer and acceptance as the road to deepening a mother-daughter bond. She is convinced that the spiritual act of forgiveness, for even the most abusive or dysfunctional mothers, is a worthy and se lf-healing goal for daughters. The book will be of most help to those who share the author's deep religious commitment, which fans of her books on marriage, eating disorders and infertility will recognize. (Feb.)

Great go-to handbook for mother/daughter issues!  Jan 23, 2008
As one of three sisters, I am the oldest. I also have a teenage daughter myself. This book has helped be immensely in understanding the complicities of the mother & daughter relationship. I read the book, and then renewed it to go through it again. I now am purchasing a copy to have on hand as an invaluable reference tool! I highly reccomend Dr. Mintle's book for anyone seeking a better understanding of this very important relationship. It was a true eye opener for me!!
Thought-provoking, life-changing, excellent!  Jun 8, 2005
This book will change the way you look at your mother no matter what your particular circumstance. Dr. Mintle has an excellent way of addressing the intimate bond between mother and daughter, whether you only have the occastional miscommunication and argument, whether you come from a situation where your mother was abusive, and everything in between. It is different from other books in that its main focus is what YOU can do with the situation, how YOU can be proactive in improving your relationship with your mother, and how powerful forgiveness can be. It is also written with a Christian perspective, and I found that as I read the book, I could apply the principles not just to my relationship with my mother, but also to other relationships in my life. You will not be disappointed with this book!
This book made a difference !  Feb 19, 2004
Love the cover and then I read the statement, "I love my mother but..." I just said those words to a friend. My mom is great but we have our "issues". This book really helped me gain perspective and work through the problem-spots. The advice is very practical and easy to apply. Dr. Linda has obviously made the journey with her own mom because she is so in tune with the mother-daughter relationship. I highly recommened this book to anyone who wants to improve her relationship with her mom.
