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!

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!

Great Read!!

I really loved this book! It was a great reminder to persevere through the hard and the ugly and proof that God is there to walk through it all with us! Annie writes like we are friends having a conversation over coffee. She’s honest with where she and where she’s been, a quality I really appreciate! I would definitely recommend this book ☺️
