Hello there beautiful people and welcome to The Glorious in the Mundane podcast!
I’m pleased to announce that today’s special guest is a new friend of mine, Miss Annie Downs. I’ve gotten to know her over the past few years as we’ve gotten to serve together on the platform but also because we have several mutual friends here in the Nashville area.
Annie released a book just this past April called Looking for Lovely. I read it while on a plane headed to the Cayman Islands, a getaway I take with close friends every year, and it was just what I needed to open my heart and mind to what God would have for me as I unplugged. Annie’s “voice” is just effortless to take in as a reader and that means a lot to me since I have attention span issues, ha ha. It was a joy to read and it made me think through some things that I had not thought through before. I always love it when I discover an age old truth for the first time or at least get the chance to think about it in a whole new way.
I’m grateful that Annie has been faithful to share her story. My opinion is that you can’t truly learn from someone unless they are being honest. Every good teacher or even storyteller has to incorporate enough transparency for the message to unfold in the way its intended. Annie was brave to do that and actually does that when you’re just chatting with her as well. It’s refreshing…
So here’s Annie and I at my kitchen table in Franklin, TN. Enjoy!
