The Parent's Battle Plan: Warfare Strategies to Win Back Your Prodigal by Laine Lawson Craft: Book Review

  *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

You are not alone--there is hope and healing for every hurting heart.

Today's technology has made sinful experiences and deadly choices accessible to our teenagers and young adults with just a click. And parents are left with the disappointments--and devastating fallout--of their children's choices.

Through sharing her own story of praying three very wayward prodigals home, Laine Lawson Craft offers not only hope and insight, but also a practical, tried-and-true battle plan for parents walking this heartbreaking season of life. You'll discover how to

- handle the emotional roller coaster of trust
- deal with your children's self-destructive choices
- pray emboldened by God's promises
- fight for your child's destiny
- and more

You can win the war of darkness over your children--even when you don't get the miracle you asked for.

Parenting is one of the greatest joys in the world… but it’s also one of the most difficult. Sometimes try as hard as we might, we can do all the right things and our children will still struggle. Perhaps this is why the story of the prodigal son is one that we hear so much about… because it is one that so many can relate to. 

Thankfully, this is not an area of parenthood that I have personally had to deal with yet, but for those who are, they need a battle plan… The Parent’s Battle Plan can be just that. It combines scriptural references with personal stories from the author. I think in sharing those personal stories, it makes it all that much more relatable. Who wants to be told what to do by someone who has never been there themselves? 

If you’re struggling with an estranged or prodigal child, this could be a useful resource.
