Disrespectful 7 year old

My 7.5 year old daughter has gotten more disrespectful lately. Today I broke down because I found out from my MIL that she to her sometimes she gets so mad at me and my husband(her dad) that she wants to punch us. I do not like the way she treats elders either. She argues with her grandparents and me. She has gotten really emotional in the last few months too. She seems to respect my husband but not me. It makes me so sad. I thought I raised her right. We are pretty strict and very involved in our church. I thought that would have helped some with respect. I don't give in to her bit I know her grandmothers do. We have been fortunate enough that both sets of parents have watched our girls since they were babies. Help! I feel resentful towards my 7.5 year old right now because of her attitude. What can I do so she gets some respect and my younger daughter doesn't start this :(
