    Debora Coty writes To Blessed to Be Stressed, a 365-day devotional, as if she were sitting down talking to God, and talking to you. Each devotion is short, sweet and to the point. They each start with a Bible verse and end with a prayer.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this different and unique devotional. Miss Coty's humor and style of writing is refreshing and delightful, full of pithy, succinct and witty observations; she can get a profound truth across in few words. She draws stories from her life and those of her friends, in addition to life lessons she has experienced and leaves you with many thought-provoking moments.

    Some of her devotions will have you rolling on the floor laughing, while others will leave you in tears; however, as the tale concludes, the lesson is heard and felt on a deep level.

    Miss Coty is not afraid to tackle difficult - even "off-limits" - topics. For example, she discusses gravity's results for women, colonoscopies and her book being a "potty" book, as in being read in the bathroom. Even so, these are only small parts of the book. The other more serious topics far outweigh those of a less serious nature.

    Too Blessed to Be Stressed is a book you will want to read, savor and re-read, gleaning jewels of wisdom, truth, and renewal of faith as it brings you closer in your relationship with God.

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Somewhere along the way, I began to hear the phrase "Too Blessed to be Stressed". It sounded intriguing but I never really took the time to learn more about it. And then, there it was...a devotional. And might I add a really enjoyable devotional full of humor and pack with a punch, the author's words of encouragment seem to hit me right where I am. (How did she DO that anyway?)

    I love starting my day with a good devotion, so was excited to receive this book. However, my excitement quickly diminished as I read through the introduction and the author immediately explained that most of her books are read in the bathroom due to short chapters and shared some "potty humor" with the reader. Hmmm... On January 2, she also explains her term of Papa God, which quickly weakens what I believe to be God's power. At that point, I started skipping throughout the book so I could write a positive review, but just did not find her sense of humor to match that of mine.

    Too Blessed To Be Stressed. . . Inspiration for Every Day, has lived up to its title and provided me with a little inspiration to start my day off spiritually. The readings are small and easy to commit to with a very busy schedule. The author, Debora Coty, provides real life situations that the readers could learn from and relate to on many levels. She is able to add scripture to back up each devotional and provide spiritual motivation, as well as, a little chuckle to start my day. .

    I am picky about my devotional books and require an amount of engaging content to keep me reading every day. I dont want my devotional time wasted on foo-foo mumbo jumbo that wont enrich me or encourage me in my walk with God. Saying that this fit the bill perfectly! It is a very handy size to keep around and quickly pick up. A full year of daily 5-minute snippets that hit you right where it counts and requires you to look around and realized you ARE blessed. The stories are dotted with hilarious quips and nibblets of the daily humor about that which make us all humans. This author reminds us we all suffer from those joy-sucking funks that make us feel down and not ready to face the world. Reading this each morning has reassured me that I can and will face the day with God and no matter what comes I am blessed by Him. Perfect for any morning routine! I actually have a hard time just sticking to a day at a time reading I want to keep going and benefit from the humor and smiles I get from the lessons of each day! Bookshelf keeper, for sure.
