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.
Sign-up to review Robert K. Cheong's Restoration Story: Why Jesus Matters in a Broken World
unanswered questions do you have about your life? Some of us struggle
to find meaning, others wonder about identity, and all of us want to be
loved. Your story—the events and relationships that define you—will
guide how you answer those questions. But God has a story too. His
story is about sending Jesus to this broken world to mend all that is
broken. Author Robert Cheong, a pastor and counselor, helps readers
connect their story to God’s story which will transform how
they live and love.
all have our own back story—our sometimes
unconscious beliefs—that have been shaped by our families,
relationships, and life experiences. Our stories
shape the personal narratives we live out: “I am not
loved.” “No one cares for me.” “I have to be better than everyone
around me.” “How I look is the most important thing about me.” Our
back story guides us in how we relate to God and others. But are
these beliefs true? And how are they affecting our lives
today? Cheong helps readers unpack their story and learn
to live out of God’s new story.
Readers will discover how
to retell their story out of who God is, what he’s
done, and the call to love him and
how the dynamics of creation, fall, redemption,
and consummation shape our present
struggles, confirm our future hope, and ensure our
ability to live in God’s power today. At the intersection
of God’s story and your own, you’ll find that his love sustains
you in your weariness, guides you in your confusion, and comforts
you in your suffering. The story of his love will compel you
to live for him.
Restoration Story can also be used alongside

is always a need for rich, practical, and transformative gospel
resources, and Robert Cheong’s Restoration Story is one
of the best I’ve seen. This book takes people on a heart-exposing,
faith-igniting, and life-changing journey. This seasoned pastor has
invested years helping people see their story through the lens of
Scripture’s gospel story. I am so glad that, because this work is now

often, we can wrestle with how Jesus makes a difference in our everyday
lives. Restoration Story not
only gives us a glimpse into how our life experiences impact how we
live and love but reveals how God’s story reframes and redeems our
story. This resource will be invaluable in helping the church to make
disciples and bear one another’s burdens as we live and love in this
fallen world.” ~ Elyse Fitzpatrick, Author of Counsel

restoring work is brought back into focus through this masterfully
crafted book. By consistently giving clear insight and using the
stories of the main characters, Robert Cheong helps us to understand
how God promises restoration throughout his story and does so in ways
that impact our hearts and lives. I am grateful for Restoration
Story, as it is a helpful resource that extends the
invitation to a deeper life and love found in Jesus Christ.” ~ Brian Howard, Executive Director, Acts
