Statistics show that a majority of Christian kids are leaving the faith when they leave the nest. That means a majority of Christian parents are parenting a prodigal child. Support for those walking through the prodigal journey is one of the greatest needs in the body of Christ today.
But where does the prodigal parent start?
Best-selling author Laine Lawson Craft knows exactly where to start because she parented three prodigal children for 15 years. Laine walked through the thick of her kids’ destructive battles with alcohol, drugs, sex, suicidal ideation, and so much more. She chronicles this journey along with the strategy she employed to see her children return to faith in Christ in the brand new book, The Parent’s Battle Plan: Warfare Strategies to Win Back Your Prodigal.
Laine and I answer these questions while pointing parents to the single greatest weapon we have in the battle to win back a prodigal child—that is prayer.
