    Lori Wildenberg has richly blessed me and will bless so many by writing this Holy Spirit-inspired book that resonates deeply with all parents, and especially those of us with children who have taken a different path. She and her daughter Courtney powerfully share their personal experience and struggles as parent and prodigal, and Lori also adds quotes from many others with various situations throughout the book. These perspectives provide rich authenticity and are very encouraging. Each chapter provides excellent practical advice, solid biblical support, and specific prayers that will help concerned parents more effectively love and walk alongside their kids. I could not be more enthusiastic in endorsing this excellent book!

    When I first heard about Messy Journey, I wanted to read it (because I liked Lori's other books) but honestly didn't think it would apply to me very much. My kids are still young, so they haven't even had the opportunity to become "prodigals" yet.

    I'm so glad I read the book. Though my kids aren't prodigals, there are still others in my life who have chosen to live in ways that are different than what I want for them. My guess is, there are also people in your life whom you love who don't always live like you'd like them to. This book is full of nuggets of truth to help you respond to these loved ones with grace.

    I've also tucked away tips from this book into my memory so that someday, if my children do rebel, I'll be better prepared with how to handle it with grace and love.

    If you have a child who has strayed from his or her faith or who is living in ways you disagree with, I highly recommend this book.

    *I received a free copy of the book for review, but I was not required to write a positive review.

    I really loved Messy Journey. I expect it will help thousands of families. It is full of real life heart wrenching stories, prodigal son and daughter stories, with amazing real life God answers. I was moved to tears as parents and children shared their hearts. In this rapidly changing world we, as Gods children, need to understand and live Gods plan to its fullest. This book will help you to do that. When you desperately need God it is time to fall on your knees, with your face to the ground in prayer, and let Him know how much you need Him. To God be all the glory!

    If your experience has been that life is messy and isnt wrapped with a tight bowthis book is for you. If you are looking for someone who will openly share insights from all perspectives of a modern day prodigal journeythis book is for you. Along with other stories, Lori and Courtney share how they hold to conflicting values while staying in relationship and seek to discern Gods truth. The honest feelings shared are not always politically correct in a world where relativism rules and people avoid conversations about right and wrong. I was challenged to examine my own perspectives of grace and absolutes against the light of Gods word. Even before finishing Messy Journey, I started a list of friends and family who will want to read this book! This side of heaven we are all prodigals trying to get home. Thank you, Lori and Courtney, for openly sharing your journey.

    In reading Messy Journey, I felt I was sitting with a good friend who really understood. So many words met me right where I am on this journey, and confirmed my faith and trust in a Sovereign Lord.

    One of my biggest struggles has been to watch my son fight against God, since I know He is the only answer. Lori's words gave me the okay to be patient and let Him do the work. It is not my job to bring my son to faith in the One, True God. That's between him and The Lord. Thanks for reminding me of this.
