"A Life of Lovely: the young woman's guide to collecting the moments that matter," is an excellent book for girls; however after reading this I would say it is more geared for older teens and early 20's, not for younger girls, although the messages are important to be hearing early on. Each day girls are bombarded with images, songs, words, messages in all forms that may impact their self-talk and their beliefs about themselves so that they think they are not good enough, not pretty enough, just not enough in general. However, Annie encourages the reader to really seek out the beauty, the loveliness around, and the confidence and strength that one already possesses and build on that, as God has created each one unique and lovely. I love how each chapter ends with an action that is specific for finding loveliness in that area, something simple such as painting your toenails, or listening to a worship song or thinking about that friend who builds you up and is a strong support for encouragement. This book is written in a conversational tone that is easy to read and follow and it is an inspiring read.
