When you’re not prepared to parent, the only thing you can do is repeat what was done.
For Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Author Marsha Mclean, the story of the Prodigal Son is inspirational. It’s a great reminder that home is the place where you can go to get revived, start again and be successful. But for Marsha, it’s also a deeply personal story, reflective her life and her strained relationship with her son.
Tracing the roots to her own issues, Marsha shares her story of neglect and abuse as a teenager and a single mom; and connects the generational ties that often accompany the struggles that afflict single parents. By returning to her faith, Marsha was able to find her way home again, to share her story and encourage her readers with the lessons she learned along the way. Whatever your situation, know that you’re not alone. There’s always hope to be revived, to start again and to be successful.
