This 31-day devotional provides daily readings to offer you encouragement, biblical direction, and practical action steps. You yourself are the Perfect Father’s child—let this devotional draw you to him, his wisdom, and his guidance every day.

“Stuart Scott has humbly and wisely given us what I think is now the best resource available for parents of wayward children, because what parents in pain need most are small and daily doses of God’s Word to focus them on what they can and cannot do in the midst of their trial. I intend to wear out a copy myself and give away copies to others.” ~Brad Bigney, Lead Pastor, Grace Fellowship Church, Independence, Kentucky
“Stuart writes not only as a wise counselor but as a father who has been immersed in the very words he offers. Perhaps, like me, you’re not a parent but a spiritual mother or father to wayward believers: soak up this devotional book for comfort and perseverance in the face of those who choose the ‘far country.’” ~Ellen Mary Dykas, Director of Equipping for Ministry to Women, Harvest USA
“Stuart Scott’s Wayward Children presents beautiful wisdom for parents whose children don’t love the Lord. These devotions offer parents courage to persevere and hope in loving the Lord and their children.” ~Amy Baker, Editor, Caring for the Souls of Children
“This is a wonderful resource that compassionately offers wise biblical help and hope.” ~Jim Newheiser, Executive Director, The Institute for Biblical Counseling and Discipleship
