Book Blog Tour and Contest Information: More Beauty Less Beast by Debora M. Coty

My Review of More Beauty Less Beast:

More Beauty Less Beast is a devotional-like book for women to help them transform their inner ogres. Each chapter has a topic, a Bible verse related to the topic, a quote, and a story, as well as ideas for “Taming the Beast” in every chapter except the last one. As the readers progress through each chapter, they will draw closer to God’s Word through hilarious, down-to-earth stories that point them to certain Scriptures that can be applied to their lives. The readers are also encouraged to draw closer to God in a way such as with Debora’s spiritual retreat idea of a “He & Me Retreat”.

Debora has a way of being both hilarious and serious at the right times in this book. I was touched by many stories that Debora shared. What was most timely for me was how she talked about how it came to be for her to attend a Monkees’ concert; I was very blessed to read this days after the death of Monkee’s band member Davy Jones. What a blessing to also learn more about the benefits of dark chocolate reducing the risk of stroke or heart attack.

Two of my favorite quotes from the book:

“If God’s peace isn’t in your heart when you’re heavy, it won’t be there when you’re thin either.” (Page 30).

“Goals are steps on the ladder to success. Ya gotta have them to keep climbing. When we care enough about achieving something, it’s downright amazing what we can accomplish step by step, goal by goal.” (Page 87).

This book is definitely a pick-me-upper (or pick-you-upper). It will most likely make the readers laugh even if they don’t feel like laughing.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity Group for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
