I first “met” Jennifer Dukes Lee two years ago when I timidly entered a contest to win a trip to Laity Lodge for The High Calling retreat. I didn’t win, but Jennifer left a comment on my blog that made me smile and suspect she was a kindred spirit.

As I’ve read her blog these past two years and exchanged emails with her, I now know she’s a kindred spirit. So when I was drumming up a list of people to ask for endorsements for Cracking Up, Jennifer’s name was right at the top.

In June, she kindly read my book and then gave me a whole paragraph of advanced praise. Since then, she’s written me countless notes of encouragement as I prepared for publication and then launched into publicity. And today, she’s sharing her audience with me.

Won’t you please come on over to Jennifer’s place and read my letter to myself three years ago?
