Loving a prodigal is a long and desperate journey, filled with fear, worry, anger, self-
recrimination. You wait for the phone call--will it be from jail or the hospital? You plead with your loved one. You search for help. You feel the shame. You cry out to God, "How long, Lord?"

Author Judy Douglass knows these lovers of prodigals well. She is one herself and has created a large and growing community with others. When You Love a Prodigal is a collection of 90 essays--90 days of perspective on what God offers to you as you love your prodigal. At the end of each brief essay, response questions will help you process how God intends to use the wilderness journey to mold your spiritual life. You can work through it day by day, or you can read it straight through.

Judy has traveled this road with her own prodigal--reading, learning, praying, and seeking God. Over and over he continued to give her wisdom, he sustained her, he covered her with grace, and he filled her with hope. May you, too, be strengthened and filled with hope as together you discover how God will take you through your own valley.

Hope and Strength for Your Journey

Loving a prodigal can be a long and desperate road, filled with fear, worry, anger, and self-recrimination. You wait for the phone call--will it be from jail or the hospital? You plead with your loved one, then threaten him. You search for help. You feel the shame. You cry out to God, "How long, Lord?"
When You Love a Prodigal will remind you that God walks beside you every step of the way. At the end of each of the 90 reflections, response questions help you process what God is saying. You can work through the reflections day by day, or you can read them straight through.
Judy has traveled this road with her own prodigal--reading, learning, praying, and seeking God. Over and over He continued to give her wisdom, He sustained her, He covered her with grace, and He filled her with hope. May you too be strengthened as you discover how God will take you through your own valley.


"Judy Douglass has written a beautiful, profound, and personal exploration of the power of truly accepting love. It will move every reader, because each of us must be loved as a prodigal if we are to be loved at all."--JOHN & NANCY ORTBERG
