Have you ever looked in the mirror and felt anything but beautiful? We’ve all heard the saying, “Beauty is only skin deep,” but sometimes the ugliness that we feel on the inside transforms our whole self. This week, I am joining a blog tour for Debora M. Coty’s book, More Beauty, Less Beast: Transforming Your Inner Ogre.
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.”
Visit www.deboracoty.com for more about Debora and her books.
With her own offbeat brand of wit and near-wisdom, inspirational humorist Debora Coty addresses heart needs of women struggling to tame that out-of-control inner beast that unexpectedly pounces, roaring and shredding, as it threatens to destroy the divinely beautiful princess hidden within. In More Beauty, Less Beast, women will find simple, practical techniques for embracing the true beauty rightfully theirs as cherished daughters of the King. Whether jaded by emotional wounds, unrealistic standards, or lack of confidence, this laugh-out-loud, girlfriend-to-girlfriend encouragement will help women transform their destructive inner beast into the exquisite beauty they were always meant to be.
Debora tackles a touchy subject with lots of humor. She is able to joke about the “Dumbo ears” on her arms as easily as she able to talk about the importance of patience. One can tell that this book is for personal for her as it is filled with analogies from her life and that of her friends. As I’ve said in other reviews, this is something I enjoy reading; it gives a new perspective to a new problem.
I really enjoyed Debora’s style of weaving quotes and scripture in with her personal examples and study questions. This is a great book for self-improvement. It would also be an excellent choice for a group study. More Beauty, Less Beast can be found at Amazon.com
