Loving a prodigal can be a long and desperate road, filled with fear, worry, anger, and self-recrimination. You wait for the phone call--will it be from jail or the hospital? You plead with your loved one, then threaten him. You search for help. You feel the shame. You cry out to God, "How long, Lord?" When You Love a Prodigal will remind you that God walks beside you every step of the way. At the end of each of the 90 reflections, response questions help you process what God is saying. You can work through the reflections day by day, or you can read them straight through. Judy has traveled this road with her own prodigal--reading, learning, praying, and seeking God. Over and over He continued to give her wisdom, He sustained her, He covered her with grace, and He filled her with hope. May you too be strengthened as you discover how God will take you through your own valley.
