In a culture brimming with people hiding behind lovely masks, it is refreshing and freeing to read an author who tells the story of her life without a filter. Such is the woman named Annie F. Downs, author of the newly released book Looking for Lovely: Collecting The Moments that Matter. Annie holds nothing back in her narrative journey. She gives insight into her struggles with food and singleness right along side her penchant for pretty nails. It is this juxtaposition of real life that I found so entertaining and enlightening. Not to mention my signed, pre-release copy came filled with glitter – just saying!
Even though Looking for Lovely is segmented into devotion-like chapters, I found myself finishing it one day, not wanting to postpone the lessons God taught Annie, thus teaching me. After releasing just two days ago, this book is a hot commodity, selling out in book stores and online distributors across the nation. Do yourself a favor and get a copy for your personal library. And if you just want a taste, you can listen to the lovely Annie F. Downs read chapter one in the new episode of That Sounds Fun podcast!
I hereby induct Annie F. Downs as a fellow seeker of the still who will help us continue the quest for moments of divine amidst the chaos of life. Lovely is all around you. See it, receive it, and soak it in. FYI – The Bible Study version releases May 1.
