Mother-in-Law Issues/WellsboroHomePage Interview with Annie Chapman

AnnieChapmanInterviewAnnie visits with Sara Vogt on    (Click HERE)

The interview begins with Annie reading an excerpt from her book, “The Mother-in-Law Dance.”

“The candles are lit, the room glows with a soft yellow hue, the groom, the pastor and the wedding party are in place at the altar. As all eyes eagerly watch the closed doors at the chapel’s entrance, suddenly the air is changed from a sweet stillness of anticipation to the first notes of the beautiful music chosen for the 9780736914567_mediumwedding processional. As the doors swing open the bride’s heart races at the sound of the melodic cue to make the long-awaited, slow walk down the aisle of matrimony. But as the song plays the lovely bride does not realize that she is not the only lady in the room who has been cued by the music.”

During the interview, Annie shares what some of the mother-in-law and daughters-in-law told her they desired in the relationships such as: the daughter-in-law wants the mother-in-law to be positive and encouraging, to let them live their own lives and give advice only when needed; and the mother-in-law wants the daughter-in-law to love her husband, to be teachable, and to not complain about her son to other people.

The subtitle of the book is, Can Two Women Love the Same Man and Still Get Along? Annie explains that the answer is, “Yes they can…but not without a lot of work and maturity!” Also, she states that being kind and respectful to each other are some of the keys to successful relationships. Annie’s closing word of encouragement to the viewers is, “In the idea of the dance, the question is who leads in that dance? The answer is…the mother-in-law leads, but she leads by backing off.”

     Thanks to Debbie for an enjoyable interview that we are sure will be helpful to couples especially during this upcoming Valentines season! We hope you’ll tune in.

Here’s what Debbie says about her work:

My passion is to provide women (and all people) with the wisdom, encouragement, and hope I’ve discovered for myself in God’s Word.  I especially love to provide nuggets of Bible wisdom to wives who are struggling with serious challenges in their marriages.  SO MANY marriages have been completely transformed when wives begin to truly understand and apply God’s principles found in the Bible!
I invite you to listen to my daily podcasts, in which I interview top Christian authors, experienced Christian therapists, and renowned pastors.  They will inspire you and guide you with Biblical wisdom!  And, please take advantage of my daily 2-3 minute youtube videos devoted to encouraging and counseling wives. 
By the way, I’m a pastor’s wife with a 32 year background in talk radio.   I also lead the dynamic wives’ ministry called Squadron of Sisters.  Check out the free resources available to you at
