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 and Review:
Are you are Worry-Wart or have those occassional worries about life issues?? Does your worry cause FEAR? I have just the book for you!! I am a Worry-Wart and I sometimes spend restless nights in FEAR of what is coming in the days ahead. I was thrilled when I read the description of this book as I felt it could possibly help me deal with the Fear and Worries.
Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate is laid out in a VERY easy to read format. The book consists of 4 sections of different Fears:
- Internal Fears
- External Fears
- The War is On
- Faceless Fears
Each chapter is filled with funny and witty stories,personal insight, and Biblical truths on Worry and Fear. Each chapter ends with a Questions to ask yourself section called "More Pluck, Less Chicken", GREAT title! Debora addresses so many areas of FEAR and Worry in the small, purse sized book. Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate is a book that not only encourages but gives the reader tools to overcoming the Fears that lead to Worry.
I was really encouraged by the book and think it would make a GREAT Women's group study! I read through the book rather quickly so I am going to go back and take it chapter by chapter so that I can use it as a personal quite time study. I HIGHLY recommend this book for all women, even if you don't have Fear and Worry!
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars! See what others are saying about the book HERE!
