When it comes to making our adult children listen to us and helping them step into who God created them to be, we have to recognize we are fighting a spiritual war for our child. However, we are not at war with our child, we are at war with the darkness that is in the world today.
That is why I am so excited to talk to best-selling author Jim Burns on this episode of the Warfare Parenting Podcast. Jim shares that over 65% of children who graduate highschool walk away from their faith, and talks about what parents need to do in that period of their child’s life to help them find their way back to God. Jim stresses the importance of a resource like my book, The Parent’s Battle Plan: Warfare Strategies to Win Back Your Prodigal, to give parents strategies and hope to impliment in their lives to win their child back.
