Publisher's Summary

"I want you to take every step of your life with excitement for where you are headed. And I want you to feel beautiful and confident as you do."

But how, when the enemy whispers lies that we are not smart enough, pretty enough, or rich enough? Or are you too dumb, too loud, too quiet, too thin, too fat, too much, or not enough? What if you don't have what it takes to be who you really want to be?

In Looking for Lovely, Annie F. Downs shares personal stories, biblical truth, and examples of how others have courageously walked the paths God paved for their lives by remembering all God had done, loving what was right in front of them, and seeing God in the everyday - whether that was nature, friends, or the faces they saw in the mirror.

Intensely personal yet incredibly powerful, Looking for Lovely will spark transformative conversations and life-changing patterns. No matter who you are and what path God has you on, we all need to remember the lovely, fight to finish, and find beautiful in our everyday!

This book is lovely

A beautifully written, relatable book. This is the first book I’ve read by Annie and I’m so glad I chose this one. I went back and forth for a couple days while deciding. Annie opens up and it makes this book easy to relate to. I’ve watched Annie’s Instagram stories for a while now and she is extremely animated and easy to listen to. Thank you for writing this book!

More memoir than anything

This is the second book I’ve read from Annie Downs and I love her outgoing personality and wit which make her very fun and interesting to listen to. The book is really a memoir though. I should have known it would be because her other book Lets All Be Brave is too. Annie’s style is teaching through the story of her own life. But most of the book is stories of her childhood or visits with friends or things she likes and doesn’t like sprinkled with spiritual thoughts here and there.

Thoroughly Loved Front to Back

So many sweet details that made my Heart think rice about everything Lovely. I listened to it when I went a runs, so there was much to look around and admire as she spoke about things that were Lovely.
Loved it so much, I bought it for a few Friends.

Amazing book

Like a friend talking with you about all their life’s struggles forcing you to reflect and grow from your own. Feel like you know her within the first 5mins. Easy listen. Wonderfully written.

Straight Forward Ideas over coffee

Each chapter was a visceral journey of what the author experienced and the connections made with continuing the journey of looking for the blessing with the struggle.

I love this book. I love Annie!

I want to be your friend, Annie! Ok, I technically already am, because I listen to your podcast, right?!? You are a good human. You write humbly and wonderfully. I relate to SOOOO much of your insecurities and doubts, even though I could probably be your mother, age-wise. Thank you for being vulnerable and witty and wonderful. Even if you don’t always think you are. I do!
