Parents of Prodigals

Train up a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV)

Healing Time Ministries provides biblical and therapeutic support and resources for the parents of prodigal teens and young adults. 

The Prodigal Parent Process

Many Christian parents endure the emotional and spiritual pain of loving a prodigal child. Daily they suffer, often alone in their silence, watching from afar as their child makes poor choices. Unfortunately, the trauma and grief of the parents of prodigals is rarely addressed in the church setting, leaving so many moms and dads to wander alone. There are real biblical solutions available to everyone who is walking through broken relationships and carrying the scars of what we call the  Prodigal Parent Process. In this book, workbook, and DVD series, Dr. Doug Weiss delivers biblical and practical tools to aid you in your journey to hope and healing.
Dr. Weiss presents this thoughtful guide to help you navigate the process and help others so they, too, can have healing on their journey.

YouVersion Bible Plan  for Parents of Prodigals

The trial of a prodigal child is a uniquely painful one for a parent. We live in a day in which the enemy is coming after our children in an unprecedented way. Because of this, many parents are grieved about a prodigal child. Prodigal Parents often have no idea what caused a son or daughter to cut them out of their lives. They wonder when or if they will see them again. Some feel the loss of a grandchild they have not yet met or the sting of one more special event without any contact. There is a great sense of loss, not just for the estranged loved one but for the dreams of that son or daughter that seem to be drifting away. In this study, your pain is not only validated, but you are given biblical principles to walk your own healing journey as a prodigal parent.
