Jenna's Appearances

Jenna appeared with Nicole over at The Unending TBR podcast to chat about the history of the Christian Fiction genre, where it came from, where it's been, where it is today, and where it may be going in the future.

Jenna was interviewed by Josephine Kennedy from Choose Grace Podcast to talk about her experiences with anxiety and self-doubt and offer advice to those who may be struggling. She also discussed her writing journey, the importance of trusting God, and what it looks like to "live out the Bible" and not just read it. 

Jenna once again joined Nicole from The Unending TBR podcast to discuss how the Passion of the Christ is portrayed in fiction and some favorite Biblical fiction interpretations. She also answered questions about Jerusalem's Daughter.
