    A great book for all Christians to read!

    If you continually struggle with anger in your life (like me), this book will help you understand why it may be an issue. It will give you practical steps to a Biblical approach to overcoming this struggle.

    If you are a parent and struggle with anger, please read this book!

    If you are a parent and feel good that you do not struggle with anger, please read this book (especially if you have a spouse who is genuinely trying to overcome shortcomings in this area).

    If you are a Christian who struggles with anger (regardless of whether you have children or not), please read this book!

    I could say so much more, but the "God Sent" review encompasses most of what I would continue to say. The authors are candid and said things I really NEEDED to hear in regards to my own anger. Ultimately, it is the Holy Spirit that will help me overcome my shortcomings in this area. This book helped me see how I can do that once and for all.

    This book was God sent for me. Dealing with parenting stress, my own anger issues and the residual effects of my own upbringing, I found myself exausted and not truly knowing why or how to pinpoint the root cause or "fix" it. After listening to a podcast back in the Spring I purchased, "Pitchin A Fit".

    From reading the very first page I felt that this was going to be a big eye opener for me and it has been! Through the leading of the Holy Spirit and daily prayer time, Jesus is teaching me and giving me peace in the midst of it all.

    Thank you Israel and Brook for sharing your heart and allowing the Holy Spirit to work through you and this book to reach others.

    Whether you are a new parent or have been on this journey for sometime, purchase the book,read it with much prayer, and an open and willing heart.

    Watch God move!

    When I heard that Israel and Brook Wayne were writing a book on

    overcoming angry and stressed out parenting, I thought "Great!! This is

    really needed!" However, I did not think the book would apply to me. While I

    knew I had many "issues" to work on, anger didn't really seem like one of

    them. Not to mention that my five children are all mid teens to young adults,

    and I felt this book was a better fit for parents of young children. I confess

    that there was pride involved. I am at least a decade older than Israel and

    Brook. My youngest is about the age of their oldest. So did they really have

    anything to teach me about parenting? Not to mention that, by the grace of

    God, all five of my children, though not perfect, love and serve the Lord. So,

    my thought was "I am so glad they are writing this. I hope it helps others." I

    even considered not purchasing the book.

    I was wrong!!! The book applies to my life in so many ways. While it is

    written specifically for anger, it is very adaptable and useful to any sinful

    habit. I struggle with overeating. I also struggle with pleasing people over

    pleasing God. And as I read the book, I realized, to my dismay, that I struggle

    with anger far more than I thought I did! This book was helpful, encouraging

    and convicting to me in so many ways. I would put it in on my list of "Top

    ten books (next to the Bible) that have helped me grow spiritually."

    What did I like about this book and why do I recommend it?

    1) Israel and Brook do not pretend to be perfect. In fact Israel starts the book

    by telling about one time when he blew it. Both of them are very open about

    their struggles.

    2) The Waynes explain what is true righteous anger and what is not. That

    chapter was very convicting to me, as I realized that there have been times

    when I felt I was righteously indignant, but it was actually self-serving anger.

    3) In addition to teaching parents how they can overcome their anger, there is

    a section on helping children overcome their anger. Since many children

    struggle with anger, I believe this section will be invaluable to many parents,

    even if they personally do not habitually struggle in this area.

    4) I love how they emphasize that our children will provide us with many

    opportunities to grow. Boy, do they ever!

    5) Israel and Brook offer practical insights for controlling our anger. I

    appreciated and related to much of the chapter on perfectionism, negative self

    talk, hormones, clutter, health issues and special needs children and how

    those each of these can lead us to respond to our children with sinful anger.

    6) I especially liked the "Roadmap to Freedom" which gives twelve steps to

    help us overcome habitual sin. The book talks about overcoming anger, but

    any sin can be applied to this roadmap. As I read it, I mentally inserted

    "gluttony" and "man pleasing" where it said anger and the same principles

    definitely applied.

    7) Even though, as I said, my children are older, this book was helpful to me

    in my parenting. The book is all about relationships. It was great to be

    reminded of the importance of having a relationship with our children. Anger

    does absolutely nothing to build a relationship with them. To quote the book

    directly, "A child gains nothing by a parent's explosive temper. The book

    reminded me to be gentle with my children, even when correcting them and to

    make my relationship with them a top priority.

    8) I love, love, love the chapter on what patience is and isnt. Any parent of

    young children, even the most patient parents in the world, understand that

    nothing tries our patience like our kids. Patience is an active choice. I have

    always thought of patience as a decision not to respond sinfully to something

    that bothers us. It is far more than that. The Waynes describe patience in an

    interesting, unique way. They compare patience to a door, to a fire and to a

    sword. They also remind us that patience does not mean one is a pushover or

    wimpy and that at times patience will not be pretty.

    9) Even parents who do not seem to necessarily struggle specifically with

    anger can have a critical, negative spirit. Israel and Brook address this, too,

    and the harm this can do to our children. There is a whole chapter on


    10) This if by far the most important point on my list (and how I evaluate any

    book on Christian living). The Waynes point everything they write back to

    God's Word. That is where they find the solutions to the anger and stress that

    parents face. It was so refreshing to me to read a book where Scripture is the

    guide, instead of secular psychology or the latest parenting fad.

    This book is real. Israel talks about the effect of negative examples in his own life and how he overcame a difficult childhood upbringing to forge a new path for his own family. Brook shares the pressures mothers face rearing and homeschooling a large family while serving in ministry and traveling frequently. If any couple understands how hard it is to control our temper with children underfoot, these two do. Yet they dont condemn; they offer support.

    Pitchin a Fit offers a fresh perspective of the anger problem, a new definition of patience, and a clear call for change. The authors give clear steps for changing our habits within our hearts and within our home. This book is a welcome help for new and mature parents and anyone wrangling children.

    Helpful tool for parents who want to show love even in frustrating situations

    We don't have chickens and our family hasn't taken a 31-day road trip, but I have no trouble relating to the events described by Israel in the introduction of "Pitchin' a Fit." Maybe it's because that van and those sweet souls have spent several nights at our house. But really, I think that any parent has had similar moments of frustration, anger and regret.

    This collaboration from Israel and his wife Brook is an excellent resource for dads and moms (or soon-to-be parent) who don't want to be that yelling, angry parent. This quick read is filled with the anecdotes, wisdom and practical advice in a conversational format that draws the reader in (and screams "mark this for later because you will need it again!") and helps parents show God's love to their children even in frustrating situations. Unlike many other parenting books, the reader isn't asked to simply take advice from the Waynes, but instead the book leads the reader back to scripture over and over again. At the end of each chapter, questions to consider will take you deeper into your journey.

    The reader will walk away equipped to identify issues that lead to anger and create a more harmonious environment for their families.
