If you are in ministry and your child has strayed from your faith, you may feel that you are alone. You are not. Judi Braddy, a licensed minister and pastor's wife, knows firsthand the pain of watching a beloved child walk away from God. Though the final outcome of her personal story is still unknown, she uses her story and the painful and poignant reflections of others to illustrate how they have navigated life with a prodigal. Braddy addresses issues such as: can you minister effectively when your own family is in disarray?; how do you deal with the grief?; remember that your child is not the enemy; whose fault is this anyway? With encouragement, hope, and a hint of humor, the author shares practical perspectives on how the challenges of having a prodigal child affects ministry as well as they ways your life, family, and ministry can be enriched if you stay the course and apply the lessons.
