You’ve probably had your kids say something like  “But it was my brother’s fault!” or “I didn’t know about that!” to escape blame.

But you knew the truth!

My guest author Marty Machowski can help us introduce the concept of sin, forgiveness, and reconciliation to our kids in everyday life.  His new children’s book “Don’t Blame the Mud” is a great picture book to explain how bad choices lead to bad consequences.  When the boy Max’s muddy trail gives his disobedience away, he has to learn what to do with his feelings of guilt.  It’s a relatable, memorable tale about our need for forgiveness, whether it’s for something big or small (or muddy!).

In this podcast, you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s important to teach kids about sin
  • How bad news can turn into good news
  • How to get back with family devotions when you fall off the wagon
  • Keys for raising healthy kids who aren’t riveted on tech

Marty Machowski is a Family Life pastor at Covenant Fellowship church in Glen Mills Pennsylvania.  He’s authored several books for churches and families including The Gospel Story for Kids series, and Parenting First Aid.  Marty and his wife Lois have 6 children and 2 grandchildren.
