Growing Slow

So many of us want to slow down, but the idea feels like an impossible dream.

Jennifer found the path toward slower living, even amidst all the busyness of life, and she wants to share it with you.

In this talk, Jennifer helps women move from a place of depletion and hurry into a life-giving, sustainable pace. With Biblical truth and vivid storytellling, Jennifer reflects on lessons she learned from living on her fifth-generation family farm — and the insights she gathered from the purposeful yet never rushed life of Christ.

This message will chart a path out of the pressures of bigger, harder, faster, and into a restful, yet active and far more satisfying way of living. It’s not about what you DO. It’s about what you UN-DO.

It’s All Under Control
Jennifer will lead you on a journey of letting go, hanging on, and finding a peace you almost forgot was possible. This talk is especially meaningful for women who are feeling overwhelmed by all that’s on their plates.

It’s for women who are trying: Trying to hold it together for the sake of the family. Trying to give their best to their churches and jobs. Trying to be there emotionally and physically for the people they love. Trying to stay on top of it all, but feeling like life is increasingly out of control.

Then she helps women find new ways to move from frazzled to free.

The Happiness Dare

Jennifer will lead you on an exciting journey toward a happier you. Jennifer will help your group tear down the obstacles that stand in the way of happiness, and apply fresh principles to live happier and freer lives.

With stories that are both fun and deeply meaningful, Jennifer helps people see how:

– God has wired each of us uniquely to experience happiness right where we are.
– God actually cares about your happiness, not just your joy.
– Sadness is important, too. Jennifer says that truly happy people make space for sorrow and grief. They understand the ministry of a smile, but they also practice the ministry of tears. She helps people understand that feeling sad is a part of what makes our happiness more real and durable.

PreApproved: Resting in the Love and Approval of God
Jennifer will lead you on a journey of the heart. She helps you let go of all of the “not enoughs” of this world, so you can rest in the love and approval that are already yours in Christ.

Jennifer helps people identify the “love idols” in their lives – places where they are feeling inadequate, or desiring the approval of people. Then, through stories and Biblical teaching, Jennifer gently invites you to make peace with yourself and to stop working overtime for an approval that is already yours in Christ. You will come to know, soul-deep, that you are truly PreApproved through Christ.

As an event planner for 15+ years I’ve worked with many speakers and artists. Jennifer Dukes Lee is one of the best. She was one of our main stage speakers for our GEMS conference, which serves leaders from across the USA and Canada. Jennifer has a heart for God and women. She comes ready to serve, not to be the spotlight of the event. Her endearing, down-to-earth personality draws women in and meets them right where they are. Jennifer speaks with clarity, passion, and a biblical knowledge that encourages and challenges women to grow deeper in their faith. And after the event, her teaching continues! Through social media and her blog posts she extends the conversation and encouragement past the event and into women’s daily lives. Jennifer is a humble, kind, and thoughtful encourager who I’m honored to recommend.

When Jennifer shared her message at the ARK United Methodist church she touched so many lives. She shared her message several months ago, and I can’t tell you how many times since then people have said that they enjoyed hearing Jennifer speak. Her message made such an impression. To experience her message and  to know you are not alone in your struggle for perfection/ approval is so comforting.  I encourage you to invite Jennifer to share her message with you.
