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.

become familiar with Scripture, exploring the patterns of creation,

his. Families will be enriched as they learn together how numbers

lesson points to a larger redemptive story of Scripture. On each
page, the illustrations engage readers, displaying not only a picture
but a mosaic of patterns.
This playful children’s
book serves as a beginner’s theology book for young readers who love
numbers and patterns, introducing the Trinity, the God of order, the

and much more. Children who love to count will be filled with wonder,
leading them to understand deeper truths about God, themselves, and
the world around them.
