Looking for Lovely Bible Study by Annie F. Downs

As Christians, we are not promised lives of ease. Often it takes just a small moment of beauty to regain hope and continue on when life is chaotic and unpredictable. Only when we learn to spot the lovely in the midst of hardship can we experience the transcendent peace of God that keeps us persevering when we want to give up.

In this 7-session Bible study, Annie F. Downs examines the ordinary people of the Bible fishermen, gardeners, women, soldiers to reveal the moments they found beauty in the darkest circumstances and hope in God s timing. Because they trusted in this: He makes everything beautiful in His time."

My Thoughts:
Are you looking for an excellent summer 7 week Bible Study? Look no further! Annie  F. Downs has an amazing study that will have you looking at life in a new way, collecting the moments that matter, giving you a new perspective on the word, your life and the summer. In this study, you won't be writing like a typical study, but you will have tons of boxes, pictures, diagrams, Bible verses to fill in and your own thoughts. I love the format of this study because it is very unqiue and engages the individual studying. She breaks each of the seven weeks into 5 days, rather than seven days, which also is a breath of fresh air. If you miss a day, don't worry, you have two days to catch up and the homework is completely bearable. It is fantastic! I love the group guide and think this Bible Study is done very well, especially for those of us who have wandering brains! If you haven't read "Looking for Lovely," I highly recommend reading the book and then doing the study, or do them together. I can't wait to do this with a small group. 
Thank you to the publishers for providing me a complimentary copy for reviews. I give this Bible Study 5/5 stars.
