In this uplifting and faith-strengthening devotional book for Christian parents, best-selling children's author Marty Machowski encourages parents in the midst of parenting trials to look to the Lord for help. Full of Biblical Scripture, testimonies of faithful parents, and insightful meditations, Parenting First Aid equips Christian parents to run to God and trust his ability to do what they can t.

Parenting isn't getting any easier, especially with the introduction of insta-porn on electronic devices, the ease of access to drugs, and the ever-increasing blurring of sexuality. This parenting resource is for weary, Christian parents overwhelmed with parenting, their children's choices, and the culture that wars against their souls.

For parents with small struggles or weighty parenting trials such as children involved with drugs, sexual sin, and teenage rebellion Parenting First Aid is full of personal, real testimonies of God's faithfulness to parents experiencing hardship.

The easy-to-use format provides parents with encouraging and faith-strengthening words to trust God in his work in the midst of family difficulty. While God does not promise happiness and ease in parenting, all parents can find comfort in God and peace beyond understanding through the Scriptures and meditations found in Parenting First Aid.

As a companion small group resource to Parenting First Aid by Marty Machowski, this study guide reminds Christian parents they aren't alone in their struggles, providing an opportunity to talk about their challenges and pray for and encourage other parents.

Each of the ten chapters of Parenting First Aid Study Guide contain book excerpts, biblical Scriptures for encouragement, and questions to help stimulate discussion and application exercises. Machowski reminds men and women to rest in God's sovereign ability to reach and rescue their children. Unlike many other Christian parenting books, this resource helps moms and dads find comfort and hope in Jesus Christ rather than relying on techniques or to-do lists that fail to deliver what they seem to promise.

So many moms and dads hide their child-rearing struggles, but by sharing together and praying for one another in a small group setting, Christian parents can find encouragement, support, and community as they learn to trust God together in the midst of hardship.

Raising kids isn't getting any easier, especially with the introduction of insta-porn on electronic devices, the ease of access to drugs, and the ever-increasing blurring of sexuality. This study guide is for weary mothers, fathers, and guardians who are overwhelmed with their children's choices and the culture that wars against their souls.

For moms and dads with small struggles or weighty parenting trials such as children involved with drugs, sexual sin, and teenage rebellion this small group guide offers a place to begin conversations with other parents; seek community, biblical Scripture, and prayer; and remember they aren't alone.


Parenting First Aid, and its companion study guide, are aimed at coming alongside parents in the struggles of parenting children, whether easy or troubled. While based in a Christian mindset and with various Bible references spread throughout the pages, it is just as useful a guide for a non-Christian home to assist with a wayward child.

Each chapter brings practical ways to love our children right where they are and adds a story of a real family and the struggles they went through themselves. Nothing in these books comes from a position of seeming high and mighty; the author shares his own parenting struggles as well.

Whether you are struggling with raising your children in a Godly way, or if you just feel you could use a parenting refresher, both this book and the study guide are great resources to use and build your foundation upon.


I received both books free for review from Audra's Book Reviews. The thoughts contained herein are my own.
