What Others are Saying

What others are saying about Carol’s thoughts on Prodigals. . .

I haven’t been on the blame game with my spouse – just myself. I’m thankful, however, that he doesn’t blame me. It’s easy to get caught up in the “what ifs” – what if I had done this and not that? What if I hadn’t done this or that? And it’s also easy to think that others may wonder “what did she do wrong and what can I do to avoid that?” And I don’t really know if they are thinking that, it’s just what I imagine. Thanks for the reminder to not waste time blaming, whether it’s me or my spouse. I need to make sure my focus is on the right place. –Georgie

But your blog has helped much – teaching me much. I have no control. It’s not my fault. And God never stops loving my prodigals. Please keep writing and encouraging those of us who are hurting and unable to be disinterested. While I don’t feel it as personally as I used to, I still ache for my lost boys.

I just returned home from the convention in Peoria to rush to my computer and email you! I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful classes! It was so refreshing to hear your perspective and get some solid direction!! I am so grateful to God for leading us to your classes. Thank you for your heart and your time! –Jill R.

When you explained your child at the end and described his endless energy as a gift it touched my heart. I sobbed as I was reading your article because you were describing my sweet son. I will try these things. Just knowing that someone out there understands first hand how special children gives me great comfort. –Bonnie S.
