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. In the past, blogging about current seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette were a big part of the blog. I'm giving that up though. I just can't handle it anymore.
Is your parenting Child Proof or could you use some Parenting First Aid?
Are you a blogger?
I'm looking for reviewers for these new books due
out later this month from New Growth Press!
Are you looking
forward to these two new parenting
releases as much as we are?
freedom-over-formula parenting book for parents of all ages, Child Proof: Parenting by
Faith not Formula provides biblical insight and
encouragement for readers who want to parent by faith. As an
experienced counselor of children and families and an adoptive and
foster mom applying the CCEF model of biblical change, Julie Lowe
uses Scripture and biblical wisdom to teach parents how to know their
children and specifically love them with the love of Christ.
Every family is unique,
which is why Child
Proof explores the need for parents to cultivate
personal and intimate care for their children as modeled in God’s
individual, personal, and fatherly care to his children. This
parenting book lays a foundation of parenting by faith and progresses
by teaching parents how they can know their own children well and
parent accordingly. By discussing particular issues parents might
have in family life, Lowe demonstrates how parenting formulas aren’t
the answer, and parenting with biblical wisdom is best for a proactive
rather than reactive approach to parenting.
Through Lowe’s personal
and professional experience, parents as well as those helping
parents—pastors, counselors and counseling students, youth workers,
and churches—will discover gospel-centered application rather than
formulas for the ideal family, equipping parents to be experts at
knowing their own children so they can know Scripture and live it out
personally in their homes.
By establishing a
mindset rather than a model or a step-by-step “how to” approach to
Proof empowers parents to come up with their own
blueprint for their families through a biblical framework.
