From Heartbroken to Hopeful
Gospel Hope for Parents of Prodigals
by Shirley Elliott
As Christian parents we are called to faithfully train up our children in the love and discipline of the Lord. But what happens when our children grow into adulthood and make the decision to live an opposite way from God’s instructions given through their mom and dad? All too often when this happens, parents begin to believe they have failed God and their child.
Brad Bigney, who wrote the Foreword describes biblical hope as “. . . a confident expectation of a future blessing centered on the person and work of Jesus Christ.” We pray you will find that confident expectation here.
