Anne has an engaging writing style as she weaves scripture, biblical examples, and personal experience together in her book Pack Your Baggage, Honey, We're Moving to Paris! In the process of this weaving, the reader will find themselves checking on their own baggage with a willingness to hand it over to the Master Baggage Handler, Jesus Christ, who knows exactly what to do with all of it.

Anne has a beautiful way of taking less familiar Scriptures to point out deep spiritual truth. She draws from them obvious and important truth we've not seen before, a truth that can change the way we think and act. She understands the deep fears and anxieties that hamper a woman's spiritual growth. You will be charmed as Anne shows you how sweetly God helped her discover her own hidden baggage, to bring it into the light of God's Word, and understand its destructiveness. Her every premise is built on the honest, healing truth of Scripture.

We all have baggage! It's a fact of life. Anne's words are a timely reminder that regardless of our baggage or the darkness of our situation, The Holy Spirit calls us to confidently step into the plan He has for us. What sets Anne's book apart is how she deftly weaves the narrative of her life in Paris around Scriptural truths. There were times in reading the book when I was lost in the winding Parisian backstreets and times when I paused reading to give thanks to Jesus for His truth. Pack Your Baggage, Honey, We're Moving to Paris! is an invaluable read for anyone looking to truly live out adventurous faith.
