About the Book

Book:The Parent’s Battle Plan: Warfare Strategies to Win Back Your Prodigal

Author: Laine Lawson Craft

Genre: Non-fiction

Release date: March 14, 2023

You are not alone–there is hope and healing for every hurting heart.

Today’s technology has made sinful experiences and deadly choices accessible to our teenagers and young adults with just a click. And parents are left with the disappointments–and devastating fallout–of their children’s choices.

Through sharing her own story of praying three very wayward prodigals home, Laine Lawson Craft offers not only hope and insight, but also a practical, tried-and-true battle plan for parents walking this heartbreaking season of life. You’ll discover how to

  • handle the emotional roller coaster of trust
  • deal with your children’s self-destructive choices
  • pray emboldened by God’s promises
  • fight for your child’s destiny
  • and more

You can win the war of darkness over your children–even when you don’t get the miracle you asked for.

This book is filled with suggestions and prayers to help you while you wait for the return of your prodigal/prodigals children. There is even a chapter on grief. 

I even think some of the suggestions on dealing with comments and gossip and etc can be useful for other things we deal with in life. 

I wish I would have read this book before, which surprises me because I was for sure that this book had nothing for me because my daughter is happily married with two grown daughters( collage students) and my son died Nov 16 2021. But like I said above the book could be helpful in other areas of life. The activities at the end of each chapter might not be but I think you could exchange a few words and add your own for both the activities and the prayers.  Because basically the book is about not accepting the blame for other people choices and about stepping away from worrying and trusting God. 

I recommend this book for parents and others that would like a little help on what parents of prodigals go through. There is even comments on how parents snoop or spy and why that is wrong and could cause more damage. I could go on and say about the book but I think I will just say I think you need to read the book if you are a parent. 

I received a complimentary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

More from Laine

I would love to introduce my friend, best-selling and award-winning author, whom you may not know yet with a little of the behind the scenes insight. She’s a mom, wife, and partners with God making impossible things become possible not only in her life but for thousands of others. She has a unique perspective because she had a seventeen-year-old marriage resurrect, a financial breakthrough after almost filing bankruptcy, a daughter healed from life-threatening illnesses, and three prodigal children delivered that are now free, whole, and healed. In 2006, she realized that what she was doing as a parent was not working. It seemed that her emotional pleas, rules, and religion weren’t helping her bring her prodigal back home. So she decided and made it my mission to partner with God at a whole new level and created a new way of parenting – one that would bring peace to her life, help millions of other parents, and bring their prodigals back home too. Her newest book, The Parent’s Battle Plan: Warfare Strategies to Win Back Your Prodigal is a must-read book to help parent’s with wayward teens and young adults.
