Editorial Reviews

Recommend this book for women's groups, for those looking for light reading with meaning, or as a gift for any woman who needs a spiritual facelift: a smile.

This is a great collection of short meditations based on humorous stories from life, her own as well as others. Yet each stories contains a truth to help the reader deal with stress. This book is a delightful read.

Too Blessed to Be Stressed: Inspiration for Climbing out of Life's Stress-Pool by Debora Coty will have you laughing so hard, and sitting there wondering why you are stressed out to begin with. I absolutely loved this book; it is for anyone who finds their self-dealing with health issues, family problems, financial difficulties, etc. I thought this book was very humorous, I was laughing throughout the entire book, she has way of writing that draws you in and makes you laugh while you're actually learning something at the same time. The chapters in the book are short and at the end of each story there is a bible verse and questions, which I found to be truly thought provoking, as well as being very inspirational. She has a way of making you feel like you're talking to your best friend, understanding exactly what you are going through, she shares her own stories with you, which makes you laugh even harder. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to embrace God's grace while coping with life and the stresses it can bring to us, with a whole lot of laughter and inspiration to go with it.

    My Look:

    From chocolate to going green and from GREASE TO PEACE, this devotional inspires with scripture and laughter in equal parts.

    In conversational style, Debora Coty will guide you through redefining your priorities, reducing stress, changing your reaction to challenging situations or people, and strengthening your trust in God's plan while teaching simple techniques to build a better relationship with Him. She laces scripture throughout the chapters for reflection, and her thoughtful questions, at the end of each chapter, will show the areas of your life that may need tweaking. She uses situations from her own life and others that show the teachings and the lessons learned with strategic quotes to ponder.

    This book is an invaluable tool that encompasses all stages of a woman's life, from childbearing to menopause.

    My Take:

    I recommend Debora Coty's TOO BLESSED TO BE STRESSED: INSPIRATION FOR CLIMBING OUT OF LIFE'S STRESS-POOL! Her style hooked me from page one and never let me go. All while laughing, I received encouragement and inspiration to learn and grow.

    I will reread this book often to find another gem of knowledge, to mediate, or to have a good laugh, and so will you.

    In addition, you'll want to check out Debora Coty's other devotional, EVERYDAY HOPE (Barbour Books 2009). And I'm sure you and I will look forward to her upcoming devotional, MORE BEAUTY LESS BEAST: TRANSFORMING YOUR INNER OGRE from Barbour Books in March 2012.

    We all crave peace in our stressed out life. Debora has written this book "to help you rejuvenate your desperate heart by discovering simple-to-implement, practical ways to attain that peace we all crave." (Intro.) The book is divided into four sections: time management, sense of humor, relationships, and faith.

    Debora has a sense of humor and it shows as she delivers short meditations, making you laugh and then making you think, especially with the questions at the end of each meditation.

    Housework? "Cleaning an occupied house is like combing your hair in a hurricane." (18) Your calendar too full? She recommends an activities enema! (42)

    She suggests you develop a sense of humor because "if you don't have humor, you probably don't have much sense." (63)

    Don't you think it was a woman on her way to the bathroom in the middle of the night who coined the phrase "wee hours"? (65)

    How could I possibly give justice to her section on menopause and her way to thaw chicken in time for dinner?

    She gives suggestions on how to deal with difficult people, the NIBs (Nuts In Batter). "Remember, even nutty lumps in the batter add flavor." (122)

    But her book is not all fun and laughs. "I've learned that real, honest-to-goodness peace is entirely dependent on our trust in God's sovereignty. That means believing He's in control of all the details of our lives, even if it doesn't feel like it. ...[W]e must realize that only when our trust is anchored in Him can we find peace." (161)

    Deborah has been an occupational therapist specializing in upper extremity rehabilitation for over thirty years. She has seen how women are vulnerable to specific maladies related to a stressful lifestyle. She gives a few simple stretching exercises to help women deal with the tension stress produces. She also suggests deep breathing.

    Debora knows pain. She suffered two years of depression following six heart-wrenching miscarriages. (194) Reading the psalms was, for a time, the only way she could communicate with God. She has written several other books, devotions, on prayer, and fiction.

    This is a great collection of short meditations based on humorous stories from life, her own as well as others. Yet each stories contains a truth to help the reader deal with stress. This book is a delightful read.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
