Item Description...
If you are in ministry and your child has strayed from your faith, you may feel that you are alone. You are not. Judi Braddy, a licensed minister and pastor's wife, knows firsthand the pain of watching a beloved child walk away from God. Though the final outcome of her personal story is still unknown, she uses her story and the painful and poignant prodigal reflections of others to illustrate how they have navigated life with a prodigal. Braddy addresses issues such as: * Can you minister effectively when your own family is in disarray? * How do you deal with the grief? * Remember that your child is not the enemy. * Whose fault is this anyway? With encouragement, hope, and a hint of humor, the author shares practical perspectives on how the challenges of having a prodigal child affects ministry as well as the ways your life, family, and ministry can be enriched if you stay the course and apply the lessons.

Publishers Description
Parenting is seldom easy. Rebellion may invade the home, forcing parents to recognize and cope with it. But how do parents maintain their peace of mind when rebellion turns into a rejection of faith, especially when the rejection is in the home of a minister?Judi Braddy is an ordained minister and pastor's wife who understands this question and knows firsthand the pain and suffering of watching a beloved child walk away from God. Prodigal in the Parsonage offers parents, especially those in ministry, an insider's perspective and time-tested encouragement for struggling with the daily trials that come when their child rejects faith.Braddy addresses topics such as whether or not you can be an effective minister if your own family is in disarray, dealing with the stages of grief as your child slips further from the faith, and remembering that the child is not the enemy. Prodigal in the Parsonage offers the insight and encouragement parents need to endure the grief and anxiety of parenting a prodigal.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The author tells story of one of children who made the choice to not have faith in Christianity. That's it! That's all! Nobody starved and certainly nobody died. Yet the author insists painting her son's choice as the tragedy to en all tragedies. Last time I checked we as individuals in our society are not only supposed to have the right to think for ourselves but this most basic and precous liberty is supposed to be actively encouraged. Obviously this is a completely alien concept to this author. Before this author contemplated writting this book perhaps sho should have gone to a place where REAL tragedy is going on as a daily basis, such as mass hunger,war, or gencide. Where children die everday. How dare she even think of feeling sorry for herself.
Encouragement for Parents of Prodigals  Feb 22, 2005
When it comes to prodigals most of us have one, know one, or are one. Judi's book, though written for ministry leaders, speaks to the heart of every parent struggling to understand why and how this could happen to their family. In Prodigal in the Parsonage Judi's stories of pain, despair, and self-blame are seasoned with, as it says in her introduction, encouragement, hope and a hint of humor woven into every chapter.

Judi doesn't try to give easy answers to difficult questions or fancy formulas for success. She does give a sensitive, loving account of faith, perseverance, and enduring family ties told in an easy, enjoyable style that entertains as it encourages.
Call to hope  Feb 10, 2005
Judi Braddy lights the way for every parent whose child chooses the prodigal path. As a ministry leader I found it difficult to deal with the shame and blame of being the mom of a prodigal daughter. Judi's book offers hope as you see your open-ended story through the lense of truth, that there is a purpose in the pain and a reason to celebrate while you wait. Eventually, my daughter found her way back to God and me. No wayward child is ever far from God's hand and heart. We can rest in that.

Judi candidly shares her own spiritual journey and those of many others. Her book is a call to deepen your own understanding of a patient and forgiving God.
