Looking For Real Life Stories
I am looking for real life stories about prodigals. They can be from a the Prodigals view point or the Parent's view point. If you were raised in a Godly home, but went astray and came home (repented and restored), I'd like to know about your journey. If you are the parent of a prodigal, whether they have come home or not, I'd like to know your story. When I say 'come home', this can be spiritually and/or physically. I'd love to hear some stories from a parent and child in the same family.
What I want to know is the heart of the issue. What would you have done differently? What advice to you have?
As the mom of a prodigal I'd like to hear how others have handled it. I am also contemplating writing a little book on How to Love a Prodigal, Encouragement and Hope for Parents. I may include stories submitted with proper credit given of course. We will also change the names.
With all of that said, I know we are all like sheep and have gone astray. Salvation is by God's grace alone, and not by works. But I also know in the multitude councilors there is wisdom.
Submit your story to firstname.lastname@example.org , put Prodigal Story in the subject line please.
