Mother’s Day is upon us! You are being lifted up in prayer this weekend as you are every weekend, by pastors’ wives around the world, but this weekend let’s all take a moment to pray for the pastors’ kids (P.K.s), too. May those growing up in our homes come to love Jesus and serve Him well.
But what if that option is not the one they choose?
If you, or someone you know has a prodigal child, a son or daughter who is distancing themselves from God, there is a new resource of hope and encouragement available.
Thanks to Judy Douglass, wife of Steve Douglass, president of Campus Crusade for Christ, International, a private, praying, supportive online community resource has been created to help you!
