Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate
Are you a fearful person? Wait, before you answer, think about it. Fear comes in so many different forms that it can sometimes be deceptive. Sometimes it looks like worry or anxiety or "concern." Sometimes it looks control or obsessions or codependency. Sometimes it looks like guilt or loneliness. Yep, those are all forms of fear, and both men and women fall victim to this demon. As caregivers, it's easy to let all of these forms of fear as we juggle more balls than humanly possible and always feel we're falling short.
I know you don't want to spend your precious free time reading anything heavy, so here's a suggestion that's light and fun. 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, and the what ifs in her latest book, Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate: Wit and Wisdom for Sidestepping Life's Worries.
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! But don't be deceived. Her playful attitude packs a punch and will cause you to pause. Each chapter includes a page of questions that will help you personalize it and nail down some changed in behavior and attitude.
Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate is a beautiful book. It's printed on high quality pink polka dot paper, making it a great gift book. Actually, I think I'll give a copy to my mom, who has a patent on fear. The book isn't as straightforward as I would like, but I have a feeling its light-hearted approach will be just right for her. It's also a nice size and very light in weight, which will also make it perfect for her.
