Have you ever experienced the pain of watching a loved one leave the faith? Even in the most discouraging moments we can be encouraged because God is in the business of leading prodigals home. In this episode of the Great Stories podcast, Charles Morris returns to an interview he did in Philadelphia with his old friend Barbara Juliani.
The daughter of a prominent pastor, Barbara decided to leave home at 18 and turn her back on Christianity. Many of the highs and lows of her story parallel the parable of the prodigal son who finally returns home to loving arms. If there’s someone in your life who has run from the faith, Barbara’s story will encourage you to not lose hope that prodigals often do indeed come home.
