Praying for Your Prodigal Daughter: Hope, Help & Encouragement for Hurting Parents
Simon and Schuster, 2008 M01 29 - 288 pages
Offering hope, help, and encouragement to hurting parents of prodigal daughters, author Janet Thompson shares out of her own experience as a prodigal daughter and as the mother of a prodigal daughter. And the key to the help she offers is prayer.
While you, as a hurting mom or dad, may know that you need to pray for your daughter, this walk-along-beside-you book will take you gently by the hand and show you how. In it you will find candid stories of other parents of prodigals -- and even the stories of prodigals themselves.
Don't wait until you have a prodigal situation. Any parent will benefit from this book's incredible insights, prayers, and stories. Praying for Your Prodigal Daughter is about hope, help, and support from others who have walked a similar road.

• Setting Boundaries • Surviving in Marriage • Resolving Conflict
