This hour we open the phones so that you can ask questions about the prodigal in your life. When your adult child has walked away from the Lord and is now dining with the pigs, what role should you play as the parent of the prodigal? What lessons should we take away from the father in Scripture who waited for the son to repent, and when he did, welcomed him home with open arms? This is a hard journey for any parent and today’s conversation is designed to give you both practical advice and encouragement.
Join us today as we gain a new understanding of what heaven is along with new mysteries and hopes. Our guest, a quadriplegic for fifty years, has also endured cancer and extreme ongoing pain. She doesn't speak lightly when she reminds us that, "God knows the precise tools to use in your life to cut, facet, cleanse, and refine the diamond that is your eternal soul.... Every good thing that God has ever given you will last for all eternity-including the best part of every affliction." We are all one day closer to eternity so hear how we can make the most of this journey.
