Hope Offered for Parents of Wayward Daughters

I am excited to announce the release on 1/29/08 of my new book Praying for Your Prodigal Daughter Hope, Help, & Encouragement for Hurting Parents (Howard Books a div of Simon & Schuster). I was one of those hurting parents myself and share from my own experience of praying a prodigal home. My daughter also tells her story along with other mothers and daughters who candidly share their stories.

One of my visions for the book is that it would be a tool to start Hope for Parents of Prodigal Daughters Support Groups. There are discussion questions at the end of each chapter and a chapter on how to start a group.

My husband and I are starting a group in Orange County, CA. If you or someone you know would be interested in joining our group or starting one, please feel free to contact me at ahw@sbcglobal.net.If anyone lives in Orange County California or Boise, Idaho I will be doing book signings and in Boise my “former prodigal” daughter will join me.

For more informatoin on the book and the book tour go to http://www.prayingforyourprodigaldaughter.com/. I guess you can tell I am excited about this book and in anticipation of all that God might do through it. There is nothing more painful than watching your child self-destruct and nothing more joyful than watching her return to you and to the Lord


  1. Janet-
    I am eager to read this book. As a mother of a prodigal son, I have prayed for years…he turns 27 this month. Talk about self-destruct. I gravitate to literature of encouragement to keep me praying and hoping.
    Thanks for the heads up!

  2. I’m glad that Kitty picked up on the fact that even though the stories in the book are about daughters, all the principles I discuss apply to sons and daughters. I pray it gives hope to ALL parents. And don’t wait until you have a prodigal. Start now!
    Blessing, Janet
