Beloved Prodigal is a gathering place supported by a small team of prayer warriors and writers. Behind the scenes women are praying for you as you gather here.
Meet our contributing writers:
Hulda is a missionary mom to 3 awesome kids currently on a year-long furlough in the States, but normally living in a former communist nation right in the heart of Europe. Hulda is married to Jimmie, the love of her life and writes at Fully Alive.
Her family has been living there by faith for 13 years and with each passing year, they are learning even more how great their God is.
This is not the life she imagined for herself growing up in the suburbs of Wash. DC, but despite the challenges and maybe because of the challenges of living overseas and raising children in a third culture, their cups are overflowing. The Father’s blessings are the best and nothing else compares.
Bettie is a wife, Mom (also of two returned Prodigals) and a Grandma. She blogs at BettieG’sRAseasons. If ever there could be a chapter in the Bible that she could count for her “Life Verse” it would surely be Isaiah 55. Every verse has found a fulfillment at one point or another in her life. But these two especially have been foundational for her trust and walk with Jesus:
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Linda, who blogs at Being Woven, is a quiet woman growing each day in the LORD.
Christ is her home. He is the well from which she drinks. Linda became His 24 years ago. She is 70 so that is actually a small percentage of her life through which she could have walked closely with Him. No matter, He never stopped waiting for her.
She was raised in a Christian home, yet never was told she could have a relationship with Jesus through the churches she attended nor at home. So after college, she wandered on her own and ‘mis-married,’ enduring a bad marriage for 10 years without any type of spiritual life either. After the divorce, she continued to wander for 13 more years, literally, moving across the USA, job-to-job. She experimented with New Age religion, only to find herself more empty than before. She experienced, endured, escaped much over the years, including the suicide of her dearest friend/like-a-brother. She would be the one to find him.
She met Kenneth 10 months after the suicide. He is a Christian who introduced her to Christ Jesus. They have been married for 24 years with Christ as the Center. She praises God for Kenneth. They have no children.
Linda feels God’s call to be one of His lights in this dark world. Where He places her is where she will be illumined. She is grateful for the love God gives to her so that she may give it away.
