Letting Go of Control with Jennifer Dukes Lee {Podcast #202}

The founder of More to Be and your host of the podcast, Elisa Pulliam, is joined by friend and special guest, Jennifer Dukes Lee, for a power-packed discussion about our identity in Christ. They wind their way through the Scriptures, looking at what it means to be “the one whom Jesus keeps on loving” and how that changes everything about how we live and can place our trust in God’s plans. This episode is full of encouragement for the gal that struggles with letting go of control along with offering biblical hope, wisdom, and a good laugh about mammograms . . .


There’s not an off-ramp for metrics. You’re groomed on the on-ramp. – Elisa

Maybe your 40s is your off-ramp season . . . when you come to terms with the answer, “no.” – Elisa

Jesus was the defining relationship in John’s life. – Jennifer

We will always surrender our lives to the defining love or influence in our life. – Jennifer


Letting Go of Control with Jennifer Lee on the More to Be Podcast

What is the defining love and influence in your life? – Jennifer

If we love anyone or anything more than God, then that is our idol . . . that is what we are a “disciple” to. – Elisa

Are we going to sit next to Jesus, secure in our identity or looking a Jesus from afar? – Jennifer

Beloved: The disciple whom Jesus keeps on loving. – Jennifer

We are the ones Jesus keeps on loving. – Jennifer

You are not the Christ. – Jennifer

I want women to have a fresh encounter with God and not a fresh encounter with me. – Elisa

Their conversation ties in perfectly to Jennifer’s newest book and bible study, It’s All Under Control: A Journey of Letting Go, Hanging On, and Finding a Peace You Almost Forgot Was Possible.
