More Beauty, Less Beast Blog Tour

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 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."

There are so many expectations for women today. From looks to demeanor, women are supposed to be many different people all wrapped up in one package. How do we balance everything? Debora Coty uses her faith and wisdom to wrap up some timely advice in a humorous package. Using scripture and anecdotes, Debora helps to point out the inner and outer beauty in all of us. She is able to help show how we can become too focused to all the wrong things and ignore the most important things in our lives.

I thought there were a lot of good points in this book. While discussing our outer beauty, Debora was able to help show the balance between taking care of yourself and obsessing over it. She also spends a lot of time emphasizing forging a very personal relationship with God. Taking this time out can also be a way to decompress and de-stress ourselves. There is also a lot of emphasis on helping to build ourselves and each other up, rather than tearing down. It is so easy to focus on the negative in our lives, but the real challenge is to find the blessings instead. Don't think this book is too "preachy" though. Everything is presented in a fun and relatable way. Each chapter also ends with some questions that will make you think and relate the concepts to your life. If you are a Christian woman looking to find balance in her life, this book will help you to see where your focus is and where it should be.
