Publisher's Description

What's a rundown, run-ragged mom to do? Her spirit yearns to soar, but her feet---and faith---are stuck in the diaper-by-diaper mud of everyday responsibilities. How can she de-muck when she's chronically exhausted and relentlessly robbed of abundant life by the joy-sucking dully-funks?  This offbeat glimpse of reality with a tangy twist pitched in to help busy mothers get in touch with rejuvenating joy and empowering faith! In mom-to-mom, smile-eliciting style, humorist Debora Coty doesn't lollygag around the hot topics such as enduring marriage, embarrassing children, defeating depression and grossfully (er, gracefully) aging. Unique insights and outrageous coping tips are shared alongside sisterly hugs and warm encouragement. Mom Needs Chocolate is a veritable grocery list of mud-between-your-toes issues, tackled with witty frankness and wild abandon. Young-at-heart mothers of all ages will enjoy hilarious and heartwarming stories that apply Scripture to real life and remind them how to hear God's still, small voice about blathering kids, howling pets and snarling traffic!

    Mom Needs Chocolate by Debora M. Coty is a fun and sweet book about learning to cope with the challenges of everyday life with a healthy dose of humor and faith. Each of the 60 chapters are just 3-4 pages for quick reading and are followed by a few discussion questions perfect for personal reflection or small group study. Coty has an amazing God given sense of humor, which is wonderful because some of her personal anecdotes will make the reader laugh aloud. From marriage to pregnancy to raising kids, Coty has stories and advice to encourage and inspire readers. Her conversational style of writing makes a reader feel as though she's spending time with a good friend. She's not afraid to show her faux pas and less than Godly treatment of others, but each is used to let readers know they aren't alone. Other moms feel the same, and God is with each and every one of them. This is definitely a book to pass on to a friend when you've finished; she'll thank you for it!

    Having been through the trenches of motherhood and come out the other side with two grown children, Coty digs deep and pulls from her personal experiences, shortcomings, and growth. The result is a compilation of frank, and almost embarrassing episodes that illustrate the realities of mothering while pinpointing the areas many of us need work on. The 60 short, devotional chapters are designed to bring joy and spiritual insight into the lives of frazzled moms.Each of the chapters is short enough to read during the valued reading time each mother cherishes - the five-minute bathroom break. Most entries come in between three and four pages in length including three Faith in Action questions for you to ponder throughout the day, or complete formally in a journal if you are able to eke out some personal time for study. The light-hearted tone of frank sharing would also lend itself well to gatherings of friends for a fun study.As brief as each of the stand-alone devotional segments are, Coty has a knack for hitting moms in the areas where they are likely in most need of refinement. After softening unsuspecting mothers up with her funny stories, she delivers a swift one-two punch in the questions section, delivering a healthy dose of conviction. Of course, knowing that Coty herself has struggled in these areas road rage, misplaced priorities, nutrition, and so on helps to soften the blow so that it never comes across as high-handed.What I most appreciate in Cotys approach is her bracing honesty. Theres no vision of perfect domestic bliss presented here for us to attain, just encouragement to keep seeking the Lord on our continuing journey and a sister to laugh and cry along with. By books end I felt like I knew Coty to a certain extent.

    This is a neat book for moms with young children. The chapters are short so busy moms can snatch a quick "devotional" inbetween activities and other jobs.
