In preparation for writing Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate, Coty conducted a survey of 500 women between the ages of 18 and 80 in order to pinpoint real fears women struggle with most on a daily basis. Gathering the information from her speaking events, online responses via her website, and surveys sent out to churches around the country, she discovered the top ten fears women face:

1) Loss of loved one (spouse/children/parents)
2) Debilitating disease/illness/cancer
3) Failure
4) Old age/senility
5) The unknown/the what-ifs
6) Loneliness
7) Dependency on others
8) Rejection
9) Specific Critters (snakes, roaches, rats, etc.)
10) Being judged unfairly

Facing Your Fears with Faith

Humorist Debora M. Coty Uses Wit and Wisdom to Help Women Conquer Their Fears

12/12/12 — Seattle: As much as we would hate to admit it, most of us struggle with some kind of fear, worry or anxiety on a regular basis. Whether the fear is something that seems insignificant to some (like spiders) or is more common to mankind (like the loss of a loved one), we need to find the faith to hand our worries over to God to handle. In Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate: Wit and Wisdom for Sidestepping Life’s Worries (Barbour Books/February 1, 2013/paperback/ISBN 978-1620291696/$9.99), Debora M. Coty uses her trademark humor to draw readers out of a lifestyle of worry and anxiety and into living life with the security of knowing that God has everything under His control.

“Fear is really about losing control. We can easily fool ourselves into thinking we’re doing the responsible thing by worrying,” writes Coty. “When we worry, we’re desperately trying to maintain control. We keep our manicured fingernails clutching on to every shred of our lives because underneath it all, we’re afraid to relinquish complete control to the Lord. Why? Because things might not turn out the way we want them to.”

In preparation for writing Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate, Coty conducted a survey of 500 women between the ages of 18 and 80 in order to pinpoint real fears women struggle with most on a daily basis. Gathering the information from her speaking events, online responses via her website, and surveys sent out to churches around the country, she discovered the top ten fears women face:

1)    Loss of loved one (spouse/children/parents)

2)    Debilitating disease/illness/cancer

3)    Failure

4)    Old age/senility

5)    The unknown/the what-ifs

6)    Loneliness

7)    Dependency on others

8)    Rejection

9)    Specific Critters (snakes, roaches, rats, etc.)

10) Being judged unfairly

Coty addresses the five categories of fear as well as how fear leads to bigger problems such as worry, anxiety and even guilt. Tackling everyday fears — financial, health, relationships, loss, pain, the unknown, the what-ifs — both real and imagined, Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate promises peace and hope for a better future. Readers will come away refreshed, renewed and ready to conquer their worries.

Faith, Fear, and a Fistful of Chocolate is the third release in Coty’s “Take on Life” series. Much like her earlier releases in the series, Too Blessed to be Stressed and More Beauty, Less Beast, the latest addition is full of personal stories bringing scripture to life, snippets of the author’s unique humor and light-hearted but heavy-hitting practical tips. However, Coty has also added additional reflection questions at the end of each chapter at the request of Bible-study groups, making it an excellent tool for personal or group reading.

To coincide with the book’s February release, the author will be hosting a Valentine’s chocolate-themed giveaway, Facebook Party and author chat. More details will be available soon.

Reviews
  • What are you afraid of? Is it something deep down that even your closest friend doesn’t know? Maybe it’s something like snakes or spiders and everyone knows your fear. I know for me I worry about my family and also have a fear of closed spaces. The movies where you see people buried alive…that gives me chills just thinking about it…

    I never thought of fear in different categories and it was interesting to start thinking about my fears this way. Each of the chapters in Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate book are short and to the point. Debora Coty shares personal stories throughout. At the end of the chapters there are questions to get you thinking about and processing through the fears that were brought up.

  • The title and cover of this book totally caught my eye and just drew me in to the book. I think fear is the reason why so many of us do not do what we are called to do. It is why we settle for less, why we don’t follow our dreams and why we don’t become more. This book is not a serious self-help book, but it is definitely filled with inspiring, motivating, helpful and fun tidbits. I would definitely recommend this book to any woman who would like a little help in the area of fear.

    This is the first book I have read by Debora. It is a cute little book that addresses the unfortunate feeling we all have experienced at one time or another, fear. Debora shares wonderful stories about herself and other women. I found Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate to be quite humorous and inspiring. Having a past in the veterinary profession and being a pet owner, I will not easily forget the tale of the cat and the arrow, OMG!

    Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate addresses internal and external fears, how to protect ourselves with our faith, and faceless fears. There are some wonderful verses and quotes included in each chapter to help lift your spirits. ”More Pluck, Less Chicken” at the end of each chapter proposes questions for you to ponder and then work to conquer.

  • BOOK REVIEW, FEAR, FAITH AND A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATES

    Since I am a person who worries out of habit now, I thought this book might just be a great book for me to read and I was right. Even though I don’t worry near as much as I used to, I still worry about things more than most people do at least I think I do.

    As I read through Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolates I loved how the author used stories of people with those fears and how they deal with them. Not only are the stories great but the author has a great sense of humor and I found myself laughing out loud at time over some of her sayings.

  • FEAR, FAITH AND A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATE

    When I saw this title come across in my Litfuse emails, I didn’t even hesitate in applying to review.

    Chocolate is my weakness. But that wasn’t all. I’ve personally dealt with issues of fear and finding ways to renew and strengthen my faith in order to overcome it. Fistfuls of chocolate are a different story…

    What a great book! If I had the time, I would have read it all in one sitting. Of course, I don’t recommend blazing through this book without taking the time to really stop and ponder the questions at the end of each chapter because they are well written and thought provoking. Although this is a great read-alone kind of book, I think it would also be a perfect book for a women’s group or Bible study to work through together.

    The topics discussed will hit you at your core, but Debora focuses on being positive in each situation and provides ways to make a positive impact no matter what we are facing. At the end of the book you have the tools to lean on the Lord and be released from fear and move to grace and trust. A beautiful book that will be read again and would be an ideal gift for any lady in your life.

  • REVIEW WITH GIVEAWAY: FEAR, FAITH, AND A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATES

    I read this book because fear has been a driving force in my life for far, far too long. There are many, many dreams I didn’t chase simply because of fear. … Fear doesn’t run as rampant in my life as it once did. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a long way to go, but I’ve made a step in the right direction. This book gives me more tools to use to move past the fears in my life and into a place of peace and power that only God can give me.

  • FEAR, FAITH AND A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATE

    My Thoughts On The Book: Each section of the book from Internal Fears to Faceless Fears lead me through ways to let God have control over my personal fears. I absolutely LOVED this book! Debora Coty shares her personal fears and her faith in a way that makes you know that you are not alone, others feel what you feel, and God is right there. Each chapter was just like a conversation with a best friend. Her writing made me cry and then in the blink of an eye made me laugh out loud throughout the book. Each chapter begins with scripture and ends with questions to help dig a little deeper in our fears. This book is a definite must read and a great resource book for times of need. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a hard time dealing with fears.

    This is the second book I have read by Debora M. Coty, and all I can say is WOW! I always enjoyed Christian humorists Barbara Johnson and Patsy Clairmont, and if you like them, you are certain to like this book. If you have ever experienced fear (and let’s be honest–who hasn’t), this is a book that will talk to you straight about overcoming it by the grace and intervention of God. The stories she shares are quite touching, and it was all I could do to hold back my tears many times. To see the goodness of God and the faith of His people truly brought me to my spiritual needs.

  • BANISHING FEAR WHILE GROWING IN FAITH

    I wish I could say that just reading this title would free you from all fear and worry. While it isn’t a magic bullet that kills off that situation, reading the candid comments in the title could help you to lean more on our Papa Father and less on your own desire to control the situation. I’m doing my best to implement one of her suggestions: a 2 week fret fast. Fret stands for False sense of Responsibility for Every little Thing. She provided several suggestions for releasing the worry and turning the situations over to God instead. I’ll admit that sometimes it can be a real challenge, but the reward is great and I know that God can handle way more than I could ever manage.

Reading that story made me want to go out and buy someone a turkey!

  • REVIEW: FEAR, FAITH, AND A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATE BY DEBORA M. COTY

    Coty starts by describing five categories of fears, and I think just about everyone will see themselves in one or more. Then she goes on to discuss fears in more details.

    One of my favorite things she does is use the word “us” rather than “you.” It’s inclusive, and makes readers feel less alone in their fears. She also uses a very friendly tone and is quite funny, but isn’t over-the-top with it.

    The other nice thing is that she doesn’t just describe fears and tell us we shouldn’t feel that way and why it’s bad for us — she gives concrete ideas for working through those fears.

  • BOOK REVIEW: “FEAR, FAITH, AND A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATE”

    Coty is quite entertaining, she’s the sort of person I’d like to hang out with at Starbucks. think there is a danger when talking about fears and anxieties to go too much in one direction, either too humorous or too gloomy. Coty is able to walk that fine line with ease.

    This book can either be read as a devotional on a personal level or in a group as a group bible study. As I was reading this for review, I usually read a few chapters a day. However, I’m putting this book back into my rotation for devotionals so that I can read it again at a much slower pace.

  • 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 loved Too Blessed to Be Stressed, so I was very excited to read Debora’s latest work. The title is catchy, and it is perfect for someone like me!

    Coty highlights common fears that Christian women struggle with, and directly combats them with Scripture and fact. I identified with a majority of the fears mentioned, so it was refreshing to have a way to fight the fears that will continue to work.

    My favorite part were her analogies, such as Xena the Warrior Princess! The humor makes it fun to read. Definitely an excellent read!

  • GREAT BOOK FOR WOMEN!

    This cute little book is a humorous and inspirational read, crafted to help women face and conquer their fears with God at their side. It’s aimed more at “women” so to speak, as opposed to girls in their teens and twenties. Full of practical, solid, and good advice, with a fine dose of laughable lines and stories pulling it together…

    The author writes that you will end up making a nervous wreck out of yourself. It can cause sleeping problems, anxiety and insecurities. More health problems than I wish name. Humor is one her antidotes, but most important is having faith in God’s and His Word. Putting on God’s Armor. You will love the authors interpretation of God’s Armor.

  • BOOK REVIEW AND TOUR: FEAR, FAITH AND A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATE BY DEBORA

    Mrs. Coty says that one of the biggest lies the enemy wants us to believe is that our emotions dictate the truth. This was a real eye opener for me, and has radically changed the things I am axious and worry about. I now know that my worry is just an emotion, and my emotions aren’t the truth. She goes on to say, that our feelings are just feelings – sometimes rational, sometimes irrational – but they are just feelings – NOT truth. The reality is that truth should dictate our feelings. Once I got this truism to stick in my worry soaked brain, it just clicked for me, and I have been free from needless, irrational fears and anxieties because of it. The biggest take away I got from this was that I am not a slave to my emotions any longer.

  • HELPFUL BOOK FOR FEAR

    I think we can all relate to having fear in our lives of one type or another and I was highly impressed with her observations and encouragements regarding fear. She tells a lot of stories that are personal – either with herself or with friends – that help us relate to her. There are a lot of laugh-out-loud moments, too, which is always good for our emotional state. I really like the down to earth, common sense thoughts to help us with our fears.

    There are a lot of Scriptures that help us with our fears and give us faith in God. I also like at the end of each chapter there is the “More Pluck-Less Chicken” questions to help us dig deeper. I found these incredibly helpful and insightful to why I have fear and how to overcome it.

  • WHAT I’M READING – FEAR, FAITH, & A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATE

    I absolutely LOVED this book!
    The author shares about her fears and her faith in a way that makes you feel like you aren’t alone. It felt like sitting across the table from a girlfriend and sharing hearts. She is so transparent in her writing and made me laugh out loud throughout the book. I figure that any book that can make me laugh while talking about something like this is a definite must read. Each chapter begins with scripture and ends with questions to help dig a little deeper in our fears. A fantastic read that I highly recommend.

  • DEEP CONTENT, CUTE PACKAGE

    I underestimated this book at first. It’s a very cute looking book, with all of the pages being pink with white polka dots… which I think helped me expect this to be sort of a fluffy feel good gift type of book. It also has a funny and very conversational tone, with lots and lots of real life stories and examples all the way through, which also helped create that impression at first.

    But, it actually does go pretty deep, and address the topic of fear in a real way. It also does well at showing that fears can be addressed without taking the easy road of just making them seem trivial something that can just easily be cast aside by logic.

    It’s a good solid book on dealing with fear of any sort. Don’t let the pretty packaging fool you into not taking it seriously.

  • FEAR, FAITH, AND A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATE BOOK REVIEW

    I have never read anything by Debora before and her sense of humor is so fun as she talks about life topics. There are many different chapters that span from jealously, depression, death, aging, money, health, and relationships. Debora covers it all in short chapters that start with a real life story, helpful advice, verses that relate to the topic, and then bullet points of what you can do to actually make a change.
    I highly recommend to anyone who needs a little pick me up every once in awhile.

  • “FEAR, FAITH, AND A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATE” BY DEBORA COTY

    Every woman has dealt with fear and worry at some point in her life. Whether it’s the little things that get you worried or full blown panic attacks, it’s something we all want to conquer in our lives but often times don’t know where to start. This is where Debora Coty steps in.

    In her latest book, Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate, Coty uses her signature friendly, warm, and personal tone to walk readers through the many sources of fear in our lives and ways that we can overcome them. What makes this book a joy to read is her girlfriend-next-door tone that doesn’t leave your feeling ashamed or guilty for your feelings and doesn’t preach at you to make things better.

  • BLOG TOUR AND REVIEW

    Over the last year or so, I have come to realize that regardless of what is happening in your life, joy ultimately prevails. I have learned through the reading of scripture and several books that when we face our fears and look for joy despite pain we learn so much about ourselves and how God wants us to live. So I was delighted to be reminded of this as I read through Fear, Faith and A Fistful of Chocolate by Debora Coty.

  • FEAR, FAITH, AND A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATE BLOG TOUR WITH KINDLE FIRE GIVEAWAY

    Anyone who has ever battled fear would agree that fear is no laughing matter… And so, it would seem incongruous to write a faith-based book that approaches fear from a humorous standpoint – right?

    And yet, Debora has done just that. Debora has written a book that not only shows us how to overcome our worst fears – she makes us laugh at them in the process!

    Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate is probably unlike any book on fear you’ve read. The difference begins at the cover…

    But don’t be fooled by the frivolities – underneath the frolic, there’s a wealth of information to be found!

    …This wonderfully refreshing book full of scripturally sound insights will help you grow in your faith while conquering your fears.

    In this pretty little book with delicate pink pages, Debora covers all the top “fear” factors that most of us face at some time or another – humilation, rejection, guilt, loneliness, worrying, anxiety, obessions, and the biggest bugaboo – fear of aging! She also includes at the end of each chapter a list of questions that would be great to use in a bible study situation, or just for personal reflection.

    I highly recommend this charming book that deals with a very serious subject – fear! As Debora advises with a very appropriate quote at the end of her book – “Don’t fear change, change fear!”

    I really enjoyed this book. I am one of those people who pretty much grip fear like it was a life saver. While reading this book, I found myself yearning for freedom from fear and realizing that I can achieve that. Debora just has a way of bringing out the humor so that you can say to yourself — if she can do it so can I!

    For myself included, why are we always so gripped with fear? I mean, God is our Father and like the Bible says — if our earthly fathers love us and give us good things, how much more do you think the Heavenly Father does! It’s high time we stop living in fear and start living the life that God intended for us to. I guess that is why I am so thankful that I was able to get a chance to read this book. It really turned the light bulb on for me.

    Debora’s writing is personal and humorous. She keeps the tone light, even while dealing with a serious subject. Her use of personal stories from her life and those of her friends provides a sense of fellowship and camaraderie. The reader is reassured that they are not alone in their struggles, and that there is hope. It is possible to overcome fear and find freedom and strength in Christ. The book is filled with Scriptures, not only to support her text, but also to memorize and apply in your life to overcome the fears.

    I recommend this book to those who struggle with worry, fear, and anxiety attacks. As I found when facing my own trial, it’s an encouraging book to give to someone who finds themselves in a scary situation: unemployment, health crises, or being widowed.

    With a lot of humor, Ms. Coty addresses fears, such as internal fears and external fears. She addresses things such as humiliation, rejection, guilt, and loneliness among many others. I read this out loud to my family, and some of these we laughed all the way through. The first story, for instance, is about exposing fears, and it tells a humorous story about two men playing with their bows and arrows who accidentally hit a prized cat… I felt sorry for the cat, but the way the story was told, we all laughed until we cried.

    If you are looking for a book about handling fears and rising above them then FEAR, FAITH, AND A FISTFUL OF CHOCOLATES is a book to consider. It is a great book. And the pages are a pretty shade of pink. With Mother’s Day coming, this is a great gift for a mother in your

    I found Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate an extremely helpful book. I love the authors writing style. She writes like she is speaking to just you, her best friend. Complete with confessions, jokes and scripture.
    Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate is divided into four sections – Internal Fears, External Fears, The War is On – Protecting Ourselves with the Armor of God, and Faceless Fears.
    Each section has chapters that covers common fears and how we can deal with them. The author uses plenty of Bible verses to back up what she is saying, and shows us how we can trust God to help us overcome our fears to live the live he has for us.
    If you have ever experienced any kind of fear in your life, and who hasn’t, Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolate should be on your must read list.

    This was such a delightful way to start my devotional time each day. Not to say it wasn’t profound, it just mixed in nuggets of fun. We all have fears and I feel like the author hits the nail on the head with so many we face. Too many of these topics hit way home for me and I really delighted in the personal stories of others dealing with similar issues. The author uses great scripture and gives great suggestions in where to start to get ahead of these fears. I loved how she refers to God as Papa God. It just makes Him seem to much more accessible.

    This book is for anyone who struggles with fear (and really, who doesn’t?).
