A Life of Lovely by Annie F. Downs

A Life of Lovely

by Annie F. Downs

Annie F. Downs wants you to take each next step of life with excitement, heading forward with beauty and confidence. ​But what if the enemy is whispering lies that ​you are not smart enough, pretty enough, or rich enough? Or that ​you are too loud, too quiet, too thin, too fat, too much? What if you feel you don’t have what it takes to be who you really want to be?

Personal yet powerful, A Life of Lovely offers young women honest stories, biblical truth, and courageous examples—all to encourage readers to persevere their way to hope. You will walk away excited about who you are becoming and challenged to look for lovely, fight to finish, and find the beautiful in your every day!

Remember God by Annie F. Downs

Remember God

by Annie F. Downs

Christians love to talk about how God is in control, but that’s harder to grasp when things aren’t going like you thought they would, when your life looks quite different than you imagined.

For centuries, God’s people have been building altars to Him—to remind themselves and the people around them of His work. His goodness. His kindness. Stacks of stones. Altars. Temples. Cathedrals. Why? Because they believed God and wanted to remember Him.

In the back of my mind, God reminds me that He is the same trustworthy God—the One who always finishes the stories he starts. And this is my story—of wrestling with our God who gives a limp and a blessing. A God who is always kind even when my circumstances feel the opposite. God is who He says He is. He is kinder than you imagine. In a world where it is easy to forget who He is, we will not. We will remember God.

Chase the Funby Annie F. Downs

Chase the Fun

by Annie F. Downs

We all know that having fun enriches our lives and lifts our spirits, but so often life gets in the way. Fun seems like something we did when we were kids, and we just don't have time for it now. I mean, we barely have time for all the stuff we have to do, let alone the stuff we want to do. We can go days without actually having any fun at all. If you ask New York Times bestselling author Annie F. Downs, she'll tell you that's no way to live!

Annie knows that when you chase fun, joy follows. In this beautifully designed full-color devotional with a ribbon marker, she invites you to experience 100 delightful days of discovering fun right where you are. With her insightful writing and provocative questions, she helps you identify what you find fun and then go after it like it matters. Because it does.

Fun isn't frivolous or somehow extra. It's essential! So join Annie on this 100-day journey into prioritizing fun in your life.

Downs and "Little Annie" as they celebrate every kid's fun, fabulous, and unique design.

That Sounds Funby Annie F. Downs

That Sounds Fun

by Annie F. Downs
A New York Times Bestseller!

We know there are certain things we must have to survive--food, shelter, and safety to name a few. But there are also aspects of life that truly allow us to be joyful and fulfilled. For popular podcaster and bestselling author Annie F. Downs, fun is close to the top of that list. Few would argue that having fun doesn't enrich our lives, but so much gets in the way of prioritizing it. Tough days, busyness, and feelings that are hard to talk about keep us from the fun that's out there waiting to be found.

With That Sounds Fun, Annie offers an irresistible invitation to understand the meaning of fun, to embrace it and chase it, and to figure out what, exactly, sounds fun to you--then do it! Exploring some research and sharing some thoughts behind why fun matters, she shows you how to find, experience, and multiply your fun. With her signature storytelling style and whimsical vulnerability, Annie is the friend we all need to guide us back to staying true to ourselves and finding the fun we need.
Looking for Lovelyby Annie F. Downs

Looking for Lovely

by Annie F. Downs
"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 you are not smart enough, pretty enough, or rich enough? Or you are 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 path 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 be nature, friends, or the face they see in the mirror. Intensely personal, yet incredibly powerful, Looking for Lovely will spark transformative conversations and life changing patterns. No matter who we are and what path God has us on, we all need to look for lovely, fight to finish, and find beautiful in our every day!
Perfectly Uniqueby Annie F. Downs

Perfectly Unique

by Annie F. Downs

STOP wishing your body was something it's not.
START embracing every part of you just as it was designed.

Your body is a sacred treasure, a worshipful instrument, and a unique masterpiece!

That's a pretty big deal.

But sometimes it feels confusing, awkward, and flawed.

The truth is: You and your body, all of it, are important and beautiful, designed especially by God with a specific plan and purpose.

Each chapter in Perfectly Unique focuses on a different part of your body and the potential it has for helping grow your faith. With wisdom and compassion, author Annie F. Downs will help you:

  • Stop being so hard on yourself
  • Stop wishing you were designed differently
  • Stop comparing yourself to others
  • Stop criticizing the young woman you see in the mirror every day
  • START honoring yourself instead

Ultimately, Perfectly Unique will not only help you understand the reasons God made you the way you are, it will empower you to embrace and celebrate (YES, celebrate!) each and every part of you.

How often does fear hold you back from the very things you most want to taste, touch, and experience? New York Times bestselling author, podcast host, and speaker Annie F. Downs admits she's not exactly the bravest woman in the world. Even as an adult, she still cries sometimes when she leaves her parents' home in Georgia, she's never jumped out of a plane, and she only rides roller coasters to impress guys. But Annie knows that courage resides inside each and every one of us, and she's on a mission to conquer her own fears while encouraging you to do the same.

Let's All Be Brave is more than a book; it's a battle cry. Annie uses honest and often humorous illustrations from her own life, contemporary real-life examples from the lives of others, and fascinating biblical stories to challenge you to:

  • Discover God's surprising answers to overcoming fear, uncertainty, and anxiety
  • Let go of the things that hold you back--relationships, comfort zones, expectations, and more
  • Say yes to both small and big things
  • Live boldly and sacrificially for God and others
  • Hold on to hope, trust God, and be brave no matter your circumstances

This book is your call to step into those places that require courage, giving you the help you need to take the next step forward--even when it's scary.
