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.

Raccoon is embarrassed when she gets a failing grade on a math test.
But that’s not the big problem: the big problem is that she is
cultivating the habit of lying to do what she wants and cover up
her mistakes. Gwen’s lies pile up. But when Mama confesses her
own failure to tell the truth, Gwen gains the courage to confess
and ask forgiveness of Jesus and of those she has lied
This colorful, beautifully illustrated children’s book invites children
ages four through seven into Gwen
Raccoon’s world to learn alongside her how to have the
courage to always tell the truth.
Edited by Edward. T. Welch, Gwen Tells Tales helps
young readers see how God always accepts us when we
confess sin and repent; and further, how he gives us the humility to
speak the truth when it’s hard. A special section at the end of
the book guides parents in helping their children be
truth-tellers. Also included is a tear-out page of Back Pocket
Bible Verses to remind children and adults that God’s forgiveness is always
available to cleanse us from sin; and the Holy Spirit always gives
strength to speak the truth.
Gwen Tells Tales is part of the Good News for
Little Hearts series, bringing gospel help and biblical counsel to
families. Based on CCEF’s model of hope and help, each story focuses on
an animal family’s real-life issues, encouraging young readers toward a
growing relationship with Jesus in the midst of challenging
circumstances. Each individual story guides parents toward meaningful
conversations with their kids, based on what Scripture has to say about
living by faith in everyday life.
