Parenting a Prodigal in Light of Eternity

by Jim Fulford and Susan Fulford

Teaching t23279

Proverbs tells us "Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it." Many Christian parents have trusted this axiom but watched their children turn from God and choose the world instead. How should the parent of a prodigal respond to this deeply disappointing and faith­testing experience? This workshop will explore the parent's role based on the biblical perspective of embracing God's everlasting promises.
