Prayers of REST
9.1 Why do we live defeated lives?
Show Notes

Do you feel defeated by your struggles and temptations?

Then join Jennifer Dukes Lee and me as we talk about how to get honest with God about our struggles so that we can break free from the spiritual strongholds in our lives.

You can get Jennifer's new guided Journal, Stuff I'd Only Tell God, here!

Not only is Jennifer a dear friend of mine, but she is also a bestselling author, thinker, and question-asker from Iowa. Her friends say they are scared to sit alone in a room with her because they end up telling her things they never intended to say. She is both proud of this fact and also a little annoyed at how nosy she can be. She put a bunch of her favorite questions into a journal called Stuff I’d Only Tell God. It’s like your own little confession booth. She’s also the author of Growing Slow and It’s All Under Control. Learn more at
