About Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate
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!
Meet the Author of Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate
Debora Coty is an occupational therapist, a piano teacher, and a freelance writer. She’s also involved in the children’s ministry at her church and is an avid tennis player. Debora began writing to fill the void when her last child left for college, and it has since become a passion. Debora has a real knack for getting across sound biblical concepts with a refreshing lightheartedness as attested in her monthly newspaper column entitled “Grace Notes: God’s Grace for Everyday Living.”
My Thoughts on Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate
I have to start off by saying that this book landed in my lap at a time when fear was starting to take a stronghold on me again. Why we let it grab us and suffocate us rather than automatically releasing it for God to manage, I can’t say. But, I did love Debora’s humorous approach to what can be a debilitating situation.
I wish I could say that just reading this title would free you from all fear and worry. While it isn’t a magic bullet that kills off that situation, reading the candid comments in the title could help you to lean more on our Papa Father and less on your own desire to control the situation. I’m doing my best to implement one of her suggestions: a 2 week fret fast. Fret stands for False sense of Responsibility for Every little Thing. She provided several suggestions for releasing the worry and turning the situations over to God instead. I’ll admit that sometimes it can be a real challenge, but the reward is great and I know that God can handle way more than I could ever manage.
