A Welcome to New Friends
Welcome! Some of you are dropping by for the first time today, coming from Ann Voskamp’s blog, where she graciously allowed me to tell a story today. It’s a pleasure to “meet” you! Pull up a chair…
I’m Jennifer Dukes Lee. I am a storyteller and a grace dweller, and I’ve been blogging about faith right here, since 2008.
My husband and I are raising crops, pigs, a herd of cats, and two humans on the Lee family farm in Iowa.
I wrote a book called Love Idol. It’s for any woman who needs to know that she has nothing to prove — that she’s “preapproved” in Christ.
I’m a journalist at heart. I used to cover crime, politics, and natural disasters as a news reporter for metropolitan daily newspapers. Now, I use my reporting skills to chase after the biggest story ever: the redemptive story of Christ. (That’s front-page news.) I cling to the hope of a cross, and I’m passionate about sharing the Good News through story. I believe in miracles; I am one. I marvel at God’s unrelenting grace for stumbling sinners like me, who have been made whole through Christ. I believe in scandalous grace, and that the cross is the most priceless and costly gift the world has ever seen. I believe that it really is all because of Jesus.
Along this journey, I love to tell the story. (‘Twill be my theme in glory!).
I am a writer for Dayspring’s (in)courage, and an editor at The High Calling.
Most days, you’ll find me right here. And there’s always, always a spot at the table for you. Shall we connect on Twitter and Facebook?

Hello to Old Friends
We’re hanging out at Ann Voskamp’s blog today. Ann has been a tremendous encouragement to me in the writing journey. Love Idol was born at a table in Texas, when Ann reached a hand across the table, and said to me: “Jennifer, when are you writing your book?” Ann is a farmer’s wife, a mother of six, a grace dweller … and a New York Times bestselling author who is one of the most generous, humble and talented faith writers of our time.
