Jennifer Dukes Lee, author and blogger, is one of the nicest people online! I’ve been joining her weekly linkup for well over a two years and when you invest time in reading people’s words, you kind of get to know them. Jennifer is articulate and extremely well-written. She is the wife of a farmer and Mom to two girls – she loves the Lord, her family, her life and her people! She is kind. Does she have it “all together”? Doubtful, none of us do! One of my first Jennifer encounters was her book, Love Idol. This book’s message to its readers was in a nutshell…
YOU ARE PREAPPROVED!
And, hear this…for 46 days Ms. Lee covered every single mirror in her home – because she wanted ONLY God’s approval – she didn’t want any other influence over her but His. (Read about that here.) Isn’t that amazing? I was so impressed by that – blown away actually. It’s what turned me into her raving fan!!! I’m just glad our paths crossed and today? I’m glad she’s visiting here at All Things Christmas Tasty Tuesday! Aren’t you?
Let’s not waste another moment – let’s hear from Jennifer!
Ever since I was a little girl, I have absolutely loved everything about Spritz Cookies at Christmas. Mom would start making them in mid-December, and it seemed like they were in constant supply all the way up until Christmas Day.
Once, when I was four years old, Mom and Dad couldn’t find me anywhere. What they didn’t know, was that I was hiding in the pantry, with the round Tupperware container where Mom stored the cookies. I was secretly pulling one Spritz cookie after another out of the round Tupperware container that Mom kept them in. I could hear my parents calling my name, and I knew that they were getting close, so I quickly gobbled as many of those cookies as I could. They found me a short while later, covered in crumbs. Needless to say, I had a terrible belly ache afterward. I don’t remember if I got in trouble, but I do know that my feeding frenzy earned me a nickname in my family – a name that still sticks 40 years later: Spritz!
And now, every year, I make Spritz Cookies with my daughters, Lydia and Anna. I keep them in a round Tupperware container…on a high shelf. 😉
Jennifer’s recent book The Happiness Dare challenges its readers to be happy! The Happiness Dare asks this question, “Would you like to be happier?” Who wouldn’t, right? Jennifer shares with us…never mind… buy her book and read it for yourself! It’s the perfect read for a snowy January day when the wind is blowing and you can push back in your favorite chair with a hot cuppa and a cookie!

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. 3 John verse 2
