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.
often feel at a loss with popular culture and how it fits in with their
families. They want to love their children well, but it can be overwhelming
to navigate the murky waters of television, movies, games, and more
that their kids are exposed to every day.

What others are
our children were young, I made a bargain with them: I would listen to
Police if they would listen to Duke Ellington. The deal was
well intentioned. I thought it was rather generous of me
to enter into their world. And all was not lost. I still enjoy the
erstwhile popular rock group today, while they like jazz. But I wish I
had possessed this book. It would have cautioned me against my
paternalism. Ted Turnau and his friends Stephen Burnett and Jared Moore
have articulated essential counsel for parents struggling to adopt the
right attitudes toward guiding their children, and themselves, into
being ‘in the world but not of it.’ The book is founded upon
nonnegotiable biblical principles: respect for children, the gift of
culture, and the gospel against legalism or perfectionism. It
is honest, at times painfully so, and real-life examples abound.
But what permeates these pages is love, love that is based on God’s
grace and reflected in our understanding devotion to the family.” - William
Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster
Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
“I currently have the good fortune to be the parent of three teenagers,
and I’m always wondering, Have we
done enough to keep our children from godless influences they encounter
in movies and music? Have we unwittingly given them over to the culture
to a point that we’ve abdicated our responsibility to train them up in
the fear of the Lord? Have we made Christ shine more brightly than the
brightest pop culture stars? As the first generation of
parents with children who have smartphones, this is a heavy task.
I am grateful this compelling book has come along just in time to
provide so much winsome, balanced, gospel-centered wisdom to help
parents in shepherding our children’s hearts toward green pastures of
godliness even as myriad attractive voices clamor for the throne of
their hearts.” - Jeff
Robinson, Author; lead pastor of Christ
Fellowship Baptist Church, Louisville, Kentucky; senior editor for
The Gospel Coalition
