My Husband Won’t Engage My Daughter

with Ron Deal | November 23, 2019

Lisa's new husband went from open and engaging with her 21-year-old to standoffish and uninterested leaving everyone feeling uncomfortable. It's hard to guess what's holding your husband back. Maybe he feels guilty being close to your daughter when his own daughter lives far away. I'm not sure. But the wisdom here is to be full of grace, not condemnation. Be patient or he'll never explain and you'll never learn what will open him up. Hopefully, eventually, he'll reach out to your daughter.
