2,000 Facebook friends, but the loneliest person in the room. Sound familiar? 
I spent the past weekend with about a hundred Jesus-sisters at a retreat center a few miles south of our farm. We call it The Hill. For three days we hang out in a retreat center, set among the trees. We drive up there -- up from our valleys -- seeking to set our hinds' feet on high pla

To some, the message of the cross is foolishness. Call us fools then. But also call us this: People of the cross.
Because in the end, it’s the only label that really matters.
It's the faces. We won't forget the faces. The set jaws, the stoic eyes. We can't forget how they were paraded along the seashore. They were earnest, and on their knees, before their martyrdom, knowing that it was going to end right there, in the sand. All because they wer

Join us for a Google+ Hangout .... "I'm breaking up with perfection" with Holley Gerth and Jennifer Dukes Lee. 
"You are an amazing person." Do you believe that? Let me confess something: I've been quite able to turn to the person next to me in at church or on the gymnasium bleachers -- or right here on this blog -- and tell you how truly amazing you are. And I've always meant it

It's time to ditch our toxic relationship with "perfection" and embrace God's perfect love instead. Authors Jennifer Dukes Lee and Holley Gerth invite you to a fun, honest and insightful conversation about how that can happen. It's a Valentine's Day treat you can give yourself and everyone in your life who needs to kiss "perfection" good-bye.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jennifer Lee. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Dear Miss Perfect, you have been around for far to long. You put others down, judging them in unrealistic ways, and when this happens they forget how truly wonderful they are. So it is time to send you packing. You have overstayed your welcome and I would love it if you would just move on out of my life for good, cause you see I am making room for Miss Grace, Miss Forgiveness and my newest addition of friends Miss Love Joy.

So do the planet a favor: Dream with your eyes open. We need your story, your hands, your song, your wisdom.
When I was a girl, I had this one recurring dream. It’s crystal-clear on the playback — I’m wearing Strawberry Shortcake pajamas, standing barefoot in the long grass, down by the lilac tree. My tiny heart understands instinctively that I was made to fly. So I try. I stretch out my arms,

Don't feel guilty about it. Carve some space in your day ... for YOU. 
I had lunch the other day. Which may not sound like a big deal, but it was. Trust me. Here's why: It wasn't a "grab-a-boiled-egg-and-turkey-from-the-fridge lunch." It wasn't an "eat-at-the-kitchen-counter lunch." It was real lunch. The kind where a pers

Don't give up. Even if you're the last one on the track. 
My eyes popped open to the alarm. It was o'dark-thirty, and every inch of me wanted to fall back asleep. But I willed my feet to the floor, then shuffled through the inky darkness, to slip on my workout clothes and shoes. I drove the bumpy gravel roads to the gym where a dozen of us gath

Join us for a 28-day journey. One verse. For every day of February. All pointing to who you truly are, in Christ. Details on the blog. 
Do you know what a treasure you are? Do you know how deeply loved you are? Maybe you're like me, in need of a fresh reminder that you were created on purpose, for a glorious purpose, in the name of love. Your Savior loved you to life, even through His own death. He is your ultimate Valenti

In an age of cynicism? This.... 
Doris was our pastor's wife in the early '80s. When I called her house -- often looking for my mom -- it was from our old rotary phone in the kitchen. It was the kind of phone with a twirly cord that could stretch the length of a room. She didn't know who was calling, of c

So love this, Jennifer. And I love you! A friend had just called me and I SO appreciated the call. I needed to know, so needed to know, that I was loved.

Don't be scared of change. You might find new life on the other side of it. 
It was 1998. My husband and I were a couple years into our marriage, and we were given an opportunity to move on to new jobs. Both of us are type-A planners, so we scratched out a long list of "pros" and "cons." We could see clearly: The benefits far outweighed the drawback

15 Promises for you, From God
