MBFLP – Dealing With The Prodigal Child

Dealing with the Prodigal ChildIt’s a Christian parent’s nightmare – the child who walks away from the family and the faith they were taught. Is there anything we can do but wait and pray? Carol Barnier, author of (affiliate link!) Engaging Today’s Prodigal: Clear Thinking, New Approaches, and Reasons for Hope, was that child herself, and in this riveting interview she shares what brought her back to Christ and how parents facing a rebellion in their family can take hope – and practical steps – for an eventual return.
