  • handle the emotional roller coaster of trust
  • deal with your children’s self-destructive choices
  • pray emboldened by God’s promises
  • fight for your child’s destiny
  • and more

You can win the war of darkness over your children–even when you don’t get the miracle you asked for.

More from Laine

I would love to introduce my friend, best-selling and award-winning author, whom you may not know yet with a little of the behind the scenes insight. She’s a mom, wife, and partners with God making impossible things become possible not only in her life but for thousands of others. She has a unique perspective because she had a seventeen-year-old marriage resurrect, a financial breakthrough after almost filing bankruptcy, a daughter healed from life-threatening illnesses, and three prodigal children delivered that are now free, whole, and healed. In 2006, she realized that what she was doing as a parent was not working. It seemed that her emotional pleas, rules, and religion weren’t helping her bring her prodigal back home. So she decided and made it my mission to partner with God at a whole new level and created a new way of parenting – one that would bring peace to her life, help millions of other parents, and bring their prodigals back home too. Her newest book, The Parent’s Battle Plan: Warfare Strategies to Win Back Your Prodigal is a must-read book to help parent’s with wayward teens and young adults.

Interview with Laine

If you could invite one person to dinner, who would it be and what would you cook?

Joyce Meyer one-on-one no one else, and I would cook steak and organic vegetables.

Does writing energize or exhaust you?

Energizes me

How did writing this book grow you spiritually?

God reminded me of all the miracles, signs, and wonders He had performed through all of our lives, even on the darkest nights, and this increased my trust in Him and increased my expectations of God’s abilities like never before!

What do you like to do when you are not writing?

I love walking, singing, praising and worshiping, cooking, and being with my family!

Share something your readers wouldn’t know about you.

I encountered some serious illnesses while finishing up and releasing this book. No one knew but a few that I was very sick, and in the midst of all of that, I was packing and moving from Alabam to Florida! So I was definitely in a battle trying to get the book released and then spreading the word that the book was now available!

What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

Jim Burns, Max Lucado,

Favorite quote?

Ephesians 3:20

When did you start writing?

years ago and quit (for 20 plus years) and picked it back up in my early 50s but never expected to be published

What is the most difficult part about writing for you?

Sitting still LOL! IO am very energetic!

How do you do research for your books?

I listen to God and write what He puts in my heart, and then I go all in!

Thank you for letting us get to know you better!
