None of us ever thought being a parent would be easy.  We knew our children would do impulsive things.  We knew they would make mistakes some of which would have greater consequences than others.  We knew there would be acts of defiance.  What we haven’t always been able to deal with are those times when our child has done something that ruptures our relationship.  Something that sends them to that far country Jesus talks about in the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15.  I am speaking to this issue on February 15th in Oshkosh at the Men of His Word Conference.  Please join with me on this blog as I and the attendees of the workshop continue the conversation on how to minister to wounded parents and their children who have wounded them.
