Welcome to the online home of Audra Jennings, a book publicist and crafter. Here I share about both. I hope you'll find books you'll want to read and crafts you will want to order. I live a rather boring, single life. At times I would like to think I am humorous. The kids I teach in Bible class tend to think so. I also blog about current seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. I don't know why, I just do.
As a companion small group resource to Parenting First Aid by Marty Machowski, this study guide reminds 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 contains book excerpts, 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 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, 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, Scripture, and prayer; and remember they aren't alone.
