More Beauty Less Beast

Author: Debora M. Coty
Publisher: Barbour Books
March 2012
ISBN: 978-1616263478
Genre: Inspirational/nonfiction/women’s issues

Is your self-esteem “soul”-ed out?

Are you tempted by the Dark Side? (Talkin’ chocolate here, girlfriend)

Maybe it’s time for a healthy dose of truth gift-wrapped in humor.

MORE BEAUTY LESS BEAST is just that. It is divided up into four sections:

1. Outer Beauty
2. Inner Beauty
3. Under Garments by Fruits of the Spirit
4. Beautifying my World

With topics such as:

Judging by appearance
Keeping fit
Body awareness
Achieving goals
Raising self-esteem
Powerful prayer
And more

Each chapter starts out with a verse, a relevant story, an application, an inspirational quote, and a few questions over what you read (your thoughts, experiences, opinions). This is short enough to be read in spurts, such as for a devotional, or to take along with you and keep in your desk drawer, your car, or on your dresser, if you need to find a pick-me-up related to a particular topic. Like, you just had a fight with your spouse over money and the only thing that’ll make you feel better is a major dose of chocolate, then you can reach for this book, instead of adding to your calorie intake and read one of several choices such as guilt, discernment, forgiveness, etc. to make you feel better and a little happier, more in control.

Highly recommended. Wisdom with humor. Can’t be beat. $9.99. 220 pages


About the book:

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.
