Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate by Debora M. Coty - Reviewed

About the Book:

Are you ready to strip fear’s power over you and become the confident woman you were meant to be? Have you found that tolerating your personal fear monsters only makes them growl louder?
Okay, sister – take my hand and let’s boldly step up and yank the masks off those shadow-lurking, anxiety-churning, worry-generating beasts.
With her own brand of off-beat wit and wisdom, inspirational humorist Debora Coty addresses heart  needs of women worn down by everyday fears – financial, health, relationships, loss, pain, the unknown, the what ifs …
With fresh spiritual insight, Debora shares hope, true life stories, scriptural lifelines, and a few LOL’s along with simple, practical tips for sidestepping fear with faith. And a fistful of chocolate!
My Thoughts:

When you reach the end of each chapter of Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate, you find a set of thought provoking questions with the header, More Pluck, Less Chicken.  How cool is that?  Debora Coty delivers a serious, God-centered devotion and then drives it home with a sense of humor and grace.  More Pluck, Less Chicken indeed!  She encourages her sisters in Christ to face their fear, rejection, guilt, loneliness and a host of other emotional temptations with the truth of Scripture and God’s love and grace.  When you look at your heart honestly and in the light of God’s Word you cannot help but come away changed.

Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate is an honest, sometimes really direct devotional that deals with the nitty-gritty truth of being a Christian woman in the 21st century.  This is a devotional that is appropriate for women of all ages, and will leave the reader both encouraged and challenged in their daily spiritual walk.  I am happy to recommend this book to everyone!
