Having a prodigal affects families profoundly, especially if you're the sibling who didn't stray. Sue Thompson shares her own moving story of struggle, shame and hope in The Prodigal Brother, a Focus On The Family book published by WestBow Press. Recognizing how unresolved anger from the past can carry over into adulthood, Thompson offers ways to heal the pain of feeling second-place in a parent's affection and attention. She also writes with sensitivity about forgiving a wayward brother or sister, without excusing the behavior. Anyone who's ever been "the good kid" in the family will find answers, understanding and the knowledge needed to unload the emotional baggage of growing up with a prodigal in the family. Sue Thompson wants you to discover the wonder in "fearfully and wonderfully made!" For nearly thirty years, she has been speaking to churches, women's groups, fellowships, and Bible studies on topics ranging from what it means to be free in Christ to expressing our personalities and talents through the love of God. www.PeopleSetFree.org
