Come back, Barbara! (Reviens, Barbara ! : La quête d'un père pour retrouver son enfant prodigue)
"Mum, dad! Barbara yells. I don't want your rules and your morals! I don't want to live like a Christian anymore! And I'm not going to do it anymore! Barbara says at age 18.
This book presents an inspiring account of the journey of a young girl who, after straying from the Lord, regains her faith and is reconciled with her father. It offers invaluable lessons on how to face our own struggles with humility, courage and hope. “Jack” Miller and Barbara Miller Juliani recount their journey from grief and conflict to joyous reconciliation. Come back, Barbara! is therefore a magnificent representation of the grace of God to the Miller family and to all of us.

“Jill and I have witnessed this remarkable story firsthand. It is not only the story of a prodigal daughter, but also that of a father who behaved like the eldest son. We see a daddy (Jack) who decides to first remove the beam from his eye in order to become the kind of father that a prodigal son would like to return to. »
