Looking for Lovely by Annie F. Downs

Here's my review of this "Lovely" book:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Annie F. Downs and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Looking for Lovely" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
“Looking for Lovely” by Annie F. Downs is a beautiful book!  As I neared the end of the first section of the book, I felt myself getting discouraged at all the not so lovely the author was bringing to light.  Much of the not so lovely was (or still is) part of my life.  Part I ended right on time because my heart was hungry for some lovely.  Annie Downs exposed me to some things I never knew, made me look at my own world for the lovely around me and helped me to destroy some long-standing “uglies”.

I’ve read several other reviews stating “Looking for Lovely” might not be for everyone.  However, if you approach this book in such a way that you can replace the ugly the author has lived (that you can’t relate to) with the ugly you’ve experienced, this can be a life-changing read.  It has personally helped me to identify my own “ugly” and “lovely” and I am looking deeply into God’s Word for healing.  I am so glad I went “Looking for Lovely” and recommend it highly.
