Whatever is Lovely: Design for an Elegant Spirit (2012)
When Marsha Maurer writes that a woman often spends more time selecting a pair of shoes than considering the spiritual virtues she wishes to shape, she characterizes the challenges women face in fashioning their best selves. Tapping the explosion in media make-overs of homes, gardens, wardrobes, and relationships, Whatever is Lovely weaves all these threads of a woman's self for a total make-over - within any woman's reach. This is a book of style for the spirit, to infuse everyday living with passion, imagination, and joy; with simplicity, balance, and peace. Marsha Maurer's personal stories, Bible passages, and quotations inspire the reader to cultivate beauty, grace, and harmony as she fashions the individual she dreams of becoming. With humor and eloquence, the author identifies timeless principles of spiritual design and offers life-changing suggestions for creating a singular elegance in God's image. Whatever is Lovely offers transformation within and without. Its fresh perspective will make a woman's new reflection as sensational . . . as her shoes. The book is appropriate for women of all ages - an inspiring gift for mothers, graduates, brides, co-workers, family, friends, or one's self. Whatever is Lovely invites readers to inventory their hearts and to make discerning choices in cultivating the beautiful spirit every woman desires.
