On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, Elisa Pulliam is joined by fellow author and friend, Jennifer Dukes Lee, in the kick off for the Unblinded Faith Series, inspired by Elisa’s newest devotional book, Unblinded Faith: Gaining Spiritual Sight Through Believing God’s Word.
Jennifer is 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. 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.
In this episode, Be Happy, Jennifer shares the journey of how she discovered that happiness is actually a part of God’s design for our lives. She and Elisa chat about the Parable of the Talents, found in Matthew 25:14-30, and her Happiness Style Assessment can help us embrace the way God designed us to experience happiness.
The Unblinded Faith Series will release each Monday in one full-length episode as opposed to our usual two-part episodes. If you prefer the original format of two 20-minute segments released on Monday/Tuesdays, let us know for our future episodes.
