Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate {Book Review}


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

About Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate:

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

Faith, Fear and a Fistful of Chocolate is a humorous and witty book about facing our fears! We all have fears of one type or another don’t we? Sometimes that fear is so strong it can be debilitating.

Debora Coty shares how we can overcome those fears by turning to God and applying the scriptures to our lives.

The book is broken down into four sections:

  1. Internal Fears ~Refusing to Water the Wallflower
  2. External Fears~Refilling Mama Bear When the Stuffings been Scared Plum-Out
  3. The War is On~Protecting Ourselves with The Armor of God
  4. Faceless Fears~Boogeymen Love the Dark

Each section has several chapters that address the above topics. The author is quite transparent as she shares her experiences with each topic.

The book is written in a conversational tone, as if you were sitting down and sharing with a good friend!

At the end of each chapter there are discussion questions that can be used individually or with a group study.

If you love humor and wittiness along with a good dose of scripture, you will enjoy this book!
