A book to free you from your inner critic, to help you lay down the scorecards, to let you know that you really are “enough” … through Christ. You don’t have to keep up with the Joneses anymore. Just keep in step with Jesus.

You are PreApproved!

We all want to be valued, to be respected. To be loved. Yet this yearning too often turns into an idol of one of God’s most precious gifts: love itself. If you, like so many of us, spend your time and energy trying to earn someone’s approval—at work, home, and church—all the while fearing that, at any moment, the facade will drop and everyone will see your hidden mess . . . then love may have become an idol in your life.

Love Idol will help you dismantle what’s separating you from true connection with God and rediscover the astonishing freedom of a life lived in authentic love.

Your Love Idol Story


Endorsements for Love Idol by Jennifer Dukes Lee

That endless, exhausting crusade for approval? Ends here. A brilliant writer, Jennifer Dukes Lee takes you to the foot of the Cross—and takes one stunning hammer to the foot of the Love Idol. Read this book—and walk free.

Love Idol is a book that is going to set a lot of women free. It’s a journey of grace, truth, and beautiful freedom. Jennifer Dukes Lee takes her readers by the hand and leads us to the home our hearts all long for deep inside—a place of true acceptance.

I am so excited about the book you hold in your hands! You are about to embark on a journey of soul healing and emotional freedom. I love how Jennifer poetically crafts each sentence; I love her transparent heart for us, her readers; and best of all, I love the way she communicates the love of our Savior. Love Idol invites you on a journey that will change you from the inside out. Jesus has set His heart on you, and you’re worth everything to Him. Today is a brand-new day to believe it, receive it, and walk in that treasured freedom.

There is no fluff in this book. It is solid, biblically based, and very readable. Within the pages of Jennifer’s words flows a gentle persuasion that whispers to our souls: you are loved, you are approved, you are my beloved. It is a message of hope that, if taken to heart, could free you from the tiring job of trying to be perfect. This book will encourage you and help you exchange your love idols for performance-free living.

I read Love Idol slowly because I didn’t want it to end. When I turned the final page, I closed the book and hugged it to my heart. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book quite like this one. It is elegantly written, beautifully spoken, bravely crafted, and tenderly shared. Love Idol is a sparkling love letter from the God who rejoices over each one of us—exactly as we are.
”<small>Managing Deidra Riggs, Managing
Has Jennifer Lee been reading my journals? In all seriousness, Love Idol taps into something countless women struggle with. As I read Jennifer’s tale of pursuing accolades and accomplishments instead of resting in God’s absolute love for her, I was reminded of my own futile attempts to impress people—and God—with my achievements. I’ve been a fan of Jennifer for a long time, and I’m an even bigger one now. Love Idol’s gorgeously crafted, warm writing style and deeply honest stories invite readers into Jennifer’s world, while simultaneously pointing them toward their heavenly Father. This is a book I’ll keep close at hand and recommend to many, many women.

Jennifer Dukes Lee has written a book that every woman needs to read, a book that speaks counterculturally, a book that whispers to the heart of every mother, daughter, wife, and sister who longs to find approval. Through simple prose and personal anecdotes, Jennifer reassures us that we were born preapproved. We don’t have to keep striving for love because we were designed and created by Love itself. It is with great joy and conviction that I endorse this timely and poignant work.
”<small>Author Emily T. Wierenga, Author
Jennifer Dukes Lee’s book is beautiful and honest. As I read her stories, mesmerized, I realize that all too often I can spot my own heart in the stories and on the pages of Love Idol, recognizing how I’ve caved to the world’s expectations and craved approval and significance, turning away from my first Love: Jesus, the only One whose approval truly matters. Love Idol reminds us to turn back to Him, where we find we’re already approved.
”<small>Author Ann Kroeker, Author
Jennifer’s writing is so real, so honest, so vulnerable, so powerful. As Jennifer bares her heart, she challenges each one of us to examine our own, teaching us how to dethrone the Love Idol and experience the life-transforming love of Jesus for ourselves.

Spread the Word!

I am in the middle of a great substitution, expelling the #loveidol and replacing it with Calvary love.

I gave up my #loveidol for Lent, and I’m not taking back. We slay the #loveidol at the site of the crucifixion — nailing it to the cross.

I am learning the love language I was made for. #preapproved​

I don’t want to make much of myself. I want to make much of Jesus. #loveidol May the gospel of Christ get bigger in you today. #loveidol #preapproved Focus on the Father, not on my flaws. Look to the Savior, not the self. The Messiah, not the mirror. #loveidol You can never outrun Jesus. And Jesus’ love will never, ever run out. #loveidol
May the gospel of Christ get bigger in you today. #loveidol Extra, extra, read all about Him. Let the headlines of my life declare the Good News: “You are loved! Already!” #loveidol He stamped me with a seal that said, “This one is Mine.” #loveidol
Well done, my good and faithful servant. Matthew 25:21 #loveidol #preapproved I don’t want to live an average life. #loveidol We love FROM our approval, not FOR our approval. #loveidol
