Jennifer Dukes Lee shares from her latest book It’s All Under Control. She talks about her journey to building greater trust and intimacy with God and how she is learning when to let go and when to hang on.
Jennifer Dukes Lee is also the author of The Happiness Dare and Love Idol. She is a popular blogger, writer for Dayspring’s (in)courage, and a speaker at women’s conferences across the United States. Her words have been featured on numerous podcasts, radio programs, Proverbs 31 Ministries, Fox News Opinion, the Des Moines Register, and Today’s Christian Woman.
A former news reporter for several Midwestern newspapers, Jennifer still loves to chase a great story. Nowadays, however, she prefers to write about the remarkably good news of Jesus Christ.
Jennifer is known for her authentic voice as she encourages women to walk in freedom. She clings to the hope of the Cross and is passionate about sharing the gospel through story. She believes in miracles; she is one. She marvels at God’s unrelenting grace for people who mess up—stumbling sinners like her, who have been made whole through Christ.
Jennifer and her husband live on the Lee family farm, where they raise crops, pigs, and two humans. She attends a small country church where some Sundays you’ll find her spinning tunes as the church deejay. She’s a big fan of dark chocolate, emojis, eighties music, bright lipstick, and Netflix binges. She wants to live life in such a way that you can’t help but want more of Jesus.

I’m the kind of girl who says, “I got it. It’s all under control.”
Set some core boundaries or core values for your life.
God has been in the process of taking me to a deeper level of intimacy with Him.
Don’t let go just because it’s hard. Let go only when it’s time.
There are times in life when God is going to ask you to hang onto something that you just don’t know if you can.
I had made God a part of my list, instead of realizing that my list was a part of God.
Taking God off my to-do list is a way of inviting Jesus into the work He is already doing.
All of this work I am doing can be done to the glory of God.
God wants you to be brave and brilliant. He doesn’t want you to settle.
