About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate by Debora Coty

My Thoughts:

Debora Coty speaks to my heart.  Every time I read one of her books I immediately buy a stack of them to give to friends.  Hey, I even want to hand them out to strangers I pass on the street!     She just makes you feel good.  (Even my husband enjoyed listening as I read the book aloud on our walk.  I couldn't put it down!)  Through her words (and hilarious stories!) she encourages, strengthens and even calms her readers.  The Bible, friends and personal experiences (let's not forget- direction from Papa God!) have helped her gain knowledge that she knows will help others.  She's more than a blessing- she's a friend.

I read Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate with my daughters- ages 10 and 15.  We laughed and marveled at Debora Coty's stories (the cat shish kabob is crazy but true!) and personal insight (she's not afraid to speak the truth!  Love that!) and I cried- often- as her love of the Lord was a balm to my frazzled nerves and my (occasionally) broken heart.  

The book is organized into 4 sections- 
#1-Internal Fears (Rejection, Guilt, Loneliness, Humiliation 
#2-External Fears (Worry, Anxiety, Obsessions, Aging
#3-Protecting Ourselves with the Armor of God (Gratitude, Compassion, Forgiveness, Perseverance, Grace)
#4-Faceless Fears- Money, Death, Negative Self Talk, etc.) 

You could easily use Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate for your Quiet Time or as a Bible Study.  Take my advice and get your hands on a book- any book- by Debora Coty.  More Beauty, Less Beast, Too Blessed to Be Stressed and Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate are my personal favorites, but you will be blessed by all of them.  

Debora Coty is one of the people I would choose to invite to my fantasy dinner party.  You know, the one where you can choose any 5 people in the world?  I'd give her a big hug and then we'd break out the Oreos.:)
