September 2019 Workshop



The flagship and most valuable effort.  Presented in generous churches and based on the Prodigal Son parable found in Luke's Gospel, Chapter 15, Parenting Your Prodigal Workshops educate, enlighten and encourage attendees in their discovery of the truths, strategies, principles and thought processes most beneficial to both themselves and their substance abuser.  Eye opening insights and life changing results have been experienced by many.


Facilitated by Chris and/or Joe, Parenting Your Prodigal's Small Group Intensives, held in a conference room, are powerful three-hour interactive sessions with coaching, education and the exchange of  thoughts and experiences. These sessions are purchased by each attendee and the positive feedback following has revealed powerful forward movement in areas previously "stuck." 

 Worth every dime!  


Both Recovery Life Coaches, Chris and Joe  share an office in Phoenix.  Conducting sessions via phone, Skype, FaceTime or in office, they recognize how clients will often feel more comfortable in a one on one experience as opposed to a group dynamic. With dedication and commitment to themselves and healthier choices, clients team up with either Joe or Chris on their journey to personal peace and freedom.  And, often they even experience their substance abuser choose sobriety.
