Series Lavishing Your Prodigal With Love

Prodigals happen even in the "best" of families. Some children stray--sometimes extravagantly--no matter how they were parented. This week, author Patricia Raybon joins Mart and Elisa at the table and tells the story of her daughter leaving the Christian faith she was raised in and converting to Isalm. Is there hope for families that don't see a way out of the struggle and conflict they're in? If you feel the pain of estrangement from a loved one, you'll want to make sure you're part of the group for this week's conversations on Discover the Word.
