When I was in High School we had a disciplinarian Vice-Principal who, when he caught you misbehaving, could actually strike you with the palm of his hand. Everyone was scared of him. Then one day I went with a friend of mine to his office to let him know of my cousin who had graduated. My friend waited outside the door terrified. While I was in the office he laughed and was very friendly and when I came out my friend was in shock. Neither of us didnt think it was possible. For some of us that is the way we see God. We do not think it possible that He will laugh with us, be friendly, listen to us or even love us. Ms. Coty wants to change all of that. In four sections, Where Am I Going? Can I Get There From Here?, Can Anyone Really Refold Maps?, Whoohoo! Road Trip! and The Destination Is My Journey Ms. Coty gives us a new perspective asbout love by looking at feeling cherished, gaining confidence and curbing anxiety. Each chapter ends with a Following My Personal GPS (God-Powered Satellite) set of questions that let the reader ponder the answers and apply them to themselves. Not only is this a great book for us to read, sometimes many, many times, it is also a great gift for our friends and family.

Do you need some encouragement? Do you need a new herspective on life?
Through personal stories and anecdotes, Coty permeates this book with encouragement. Whether you need to know you are cherished by God, need to overcome depression, or have hidden hurts that need healing, you'll find encouragement in this book.
Sometimes her stories are laugh out loud funny. Sometimes they are so serious you'll want to weep. But each one has an encouraging lesson that comes through loud and clear. She shows how God is the lifter of your head, how to get Scripture to reside in your brain, how to recognize everyday mini-miracles, and how to BARF when things go bad (you've got to read the book). She deals with brokenness, discernment, burnout, control, getting refreshed, and much more. She adds questions at the end of each chapter that are great for reflection or discussion within a trusted group.
Coty has a way with words. I mean, have you ever measured yourself on the grumplitude barometer? And, Forgiveness is like losing weight. (You've got to read the book.) She is great at wrapping nuggets of truth in the gift-wrap of humor.
If you need to insert some joy into your life, this book is for you. If you need to be reminded of the relentless love of God toward you, this book is for you. If you feel lost in the mess of your life, this book is for you.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book through the Litfuse Publicity Group for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
loving and humorous suggestion for improvement of self worth
October 20, 2014
"Too Loved To Be Stressed"' by Debora Coty, is another invaluable resource.for ALL women. No one can express the ways to help oneself as well as this talented author, in her own unique, humorous style, while still getting right to the point of problems and how we can successfully deal with them. The way the world views females is NOT the way God looks at us. Debora makes this very clear. Our success is too often dependent on looks, behavior and talents! This only leads us to fear that we will never be accepted by others. We may even attempt to outdo others and as a result , think of our God as one who judges unfairly, is ruthless and stern, when this is not even close to the truth!! At some times in life, all of us have felt lost in our journey, some of us more than others. Hopelessness overcomes and it is felt that the battle is lost. This is not what Papa God, as Debora refers to our loving Father, desires or ever has in His plans for us.
Debora gives us easy, practical things to do in our daily lives to improve and enhance our lives. I love the simple follow up to each chapter. After giving us much food for thought , as well as realistic situations, along with a few giggles, we come to the section entitled, "Following My Personal GPS (God Powered Satellite)". Here, we are given questions regarding our own lives to think about, as well as references to Debora's personal experiences, and how we can use the contents of the chapter to improve our self worth, thereby making us happier and more content.. I particularly loved the section of Chapter 4, "Topping Off My Tank", in which we are given a list of Life Savers, easy but meaningful scriptures to memorize, one per month to help you gain power to replace your "old wimpy self"!!
Debora's books are at the top of my list in Useful but Simple self help books!! The humor with which she views life is admirable and her ability to get the point across with a laugh and biblical proof is of use to any woman, young or older. I finished the book thinking that I, too, could find simple practical ways to release my own personal struggles . You can only find this through the kind of guidance and belonging that only found in the unconditional love of Papa God.
Definitely a five star book!! Don't miss this book. It can and will change your life.
