With her own offbeat brand of wit and near-wisdom, inspirational humorist Debora Coty addresses heart needs of women struggling to tame that out-of-control inner beast that unexpectedly pounces, roaring and shredding, as it threatens to destroy the divinely beautiful princess hidden within. Whether jaded by emotional wounds, unrealistic standards, or lack of confidence, this laugh-out-loud, girlfriend-to-girlfriend encouragement will help women transform their destructive inner beast into the exquisite beauty they were always meant to be.

With the wit of Erma Bombeck and the wisdom of Dear Abby, Coty weaves a practical handbook into a fun, easy read. Patsy Clairmont calls Debora “delightful … invigorating”. Debora is celebrating the release of her new book by hosting the “Transform Your Inner Ogre Giveaway” (win a $150 Visa Cash Card!) and hosting the “Divine Beauty” Facebook party (3/22)! Details below.

Debora Coty is an occupational therapist, a piano teacher, and a freelance writer. She’s also involved in the children’s ministry at her church and is an avid tennis player. Debora began writing to fill the void when her last child left for college, and it has since become a passion. Debora has a real knack for getting across sound biblical concepts with a refreshing lightheartedness as attested in her monthly newspaper column entitled “Grace Notes: God’s Grace for Everyday Living.”

My Review:

Debora Coty, in her book, More Beauty, Less Beast, reaches into every area of your life to allow the Lord access and transform you into more of a beauty and less of a beast.   Debora is transparent in her book to show you her own life, worts and all, and how God is changing her every day she allows Him to.  She doesn’t say it’s painless, but it’s worth every second of your life.

Debora’s style truly is a lot like Erma Bombeck, with humor that makes us sometimes laugh at ourselves and get back up and start over.  Yet she is tender and comforting as she encourages you to get back up and start over.  Her stories lend an understanding to the concepts she is expounding on.  I found this to be a very enriching book to read over again to gain more insights.

Debora teaches on four basic subjects, but they delve much deeper than one would think:

  1. Outer Beauty-judging, flab, waists, behavior, maturing, fleas, confidence
  2. Inner Beauty-God’s standard, spiritual retreat, discernment, adversity, goals,  conquering guilt, call-waiting
  3. Undergarments by Fruit of the Spirit (Not the Loom!)-love battlefields, lifer, stress-p00l, patience, queen, silk ribbons, fragrances, melted earrings
  4. Beautifying My World-friendships, forgiveness, chocolate, weirdness legacy, encouragement, the real thing, ogre transformation

Debora’s opening Scripture for each chapter resonates throughout each chapter.  And as a re-cap, she has a ‘taming the beast’ set of questions that make the book personal.

I would love to have a woman’s Bible study based on this author’s book.  The ‘taming the beast’ questions could be the starting point for a good discussion, with a chance to encourage each other in their transformation and trials.
