All Things Lovely: Inspiring Health and Wholeness in Your Home, Heart, and Community (Hardcover)
Take the first steps to living as a healthier and happier woman and discover the spiritual importance of acceptance, gathering, and community. Jenn Johnson has come to realize that the pursuit of perfection is unrealistic and unfair. Instead, we need to pause and reflect on what's in front of us. But how? How can we slow down? How can we remain focused on what's important and do things with intention? What can we pursue that represents God's heart for us, things that are true, noble, right, pure, admirable, excellent, praiseworthy? By pursuing all things "lovely." Living a holistic and holy life, a life marked by beauty and truth, means being mindful and intentional about what we put in our bodies, how we present ourselves to the world, the spaces we create, and the people we let into our lives. When we set our minds on what is lovely, we begin to see ourselves and the world as God intended. We begin to be wholly renewed.

It’s amazing when you meet a kindred heart, as Jenn and I originally connected around the worship of God and a love for His presence. Now, after many years of friendship, our shared love of family, food, authenticity, community, and the power of gathering around the table are also some of the things I love most about this woman. I know this book will bring a great refreshing to your heart, as you allow Jenn to lead you into All Things Lovely.
In All Things Lovely Jenn teaches us that what we magnify matters, and what happens when you magnify the Lord is everything else becomes dim. What a beautiful reminder to keep our eyes and thoughts on Jesus alone. I love the way Jenn helps us apply this to every area of our lives—even in keeping our homes organized—because in that we discover the peace that order and health bring. Jenn is the most hospitable and generous hostess and I’ve been privileged to experience for myself the way she lives what she shares in the words of this book.—Laurie Crouch
