About this item


About the Book

Bestselling author, national speaker, and successful podcast host invites you to experience life through wide-open faith and a healthy dose of fun, encouraging you to celebrate and discover God's design for fun in your life.

Book Synopsis

A New York Times Bestseller!

We know there are certain things we must have to survive--food, shelter, and safety to name a few. But there are also aspects of life that truly allow us to be joyful and fulfilled. For popular podcaster and bestselling author Annie F. Downs, fun is close to the top of that list. Few would argue that having fun doesn't enrich our lives, but so much gets in the way of prioritizing it. Tough days, busyness, and feelings that are hard to talk about keep us from the fun that's out there waiting to be found.

With That Sounds Fun, Annie offers an irresistible invitation to understand the meaning of fun, to embrace it and chase it, and to figure out what, exactly, sounds fun to you--then do it! Exploring some research and sharing some thoughts behind why fun matters, she shows you how to find, experience, and multiply your fun. With her signature storytelling style and whimsical vulnerability, Annie is the friend we all need to guide us back to staying true to ourselves and finding the fun we need.

From the Back Cover

FUN: A little word that can make a huge impact on your life

What sounds fun to you?

You might be surprised to learn that the idea of fun is actually pretty serious business. Join Annie F. Downs on a journey of discovering not just the fun that you want in your life, but also the fun that you need. After all, she's kind of an expert.

As the host of the widely popular That Sounds Fun podcast, Annie and her guests chat about fun every week. She chases it, she celebrates it, and now she's going to help you find it for yourself. Annie's witty, warm approach in this book will help you see the unexpected benefits of opening up, letting go, and giving in to a little more fun in your days.

Kind of a letdown

1 out of 5 stars
LM - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
I really wanted to love this book. As a new stay at home mom to my one year old, I've lost my only hobby which was my job and I need something to get me out of my funk. The book started off strong, but a few chapters in it just started sounding like the diary of any single 30 year old woman. Her stories didn't have any deeper meaning to me, there wasn't much connection from one story to the next, and I struggled to get through the book. It just seemed like a collection of random personal stories to fill pages but they lacked substance.
