The Spirit of Loveliness^^A gracious and welcoming home...^A warm and caring heart...^A serene and joyful spirit...^A unique and unforgettable sense of style...^^Isn't that what you want for yourself and your family-a life that is fragrant with the spirit of loveliness?^^Emilie Barnes believes that spirit lives in your heart, even if you've grown discouraged and decided that "lovely living" takes too much time, too much energy, too much money. She writes to show how you can weave loveliness into the fabric of your daily life. With just a little care and a little inspiration, you can...^^- transform your home into a haven of welcome and blessing^- unleash your creative energy to build a lifestyle that is truly and beautifully "you"^- enrich your spirit with the joy of growing things (even if your thumb is several shades shy of green)^- turn your mealtimes into feasts of thanksgiving-and "kitchen duty" into opportunities for fun and fulfillment^- renew your soul by making space in your life (yes, even your crowded, crazy life) for stillness, relaxation, and prayer^- open your life by making sharing and hospitality part of your everyday routine^- build traditions of celebration that let joy permeate every corner of your life and filter down though the generations of people you love^^The Spirit of Loveliness is not a how-to book, although it brims with specific and practical hints. It is not an inspirational book, although it provides plenty of uplift. It is a warm and personal encounter-like sharing a cup of tea with a friend who listens and understands and encourages you to be all you can be. And it is an affectionate reminder that the spirit of loveliness is already there, in your heart-ready to be nurtured and enjoyed, ready to transform your world.^
