My Review

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.

My review stressed

Too Blessed to Be Stressed is a great cookbook for those of us so busy we seem to meet ourselves coming and going.

Debora Coty has divided the book into four basic sections that include:

Time Wise

Soul Fed

Heart Healthy

Company Happy

There is also an introduction at the beginning and menu suggestions and grocery lists at the end.

The recipes are easy to read, follow, understand and most importantly, they are quick, using food items most people have on hand already.

Scattered throughout the book are notes about the recipe, handy hints, photos, Bible quotes and cute/funny stories titled Chuckle Breaks.

I really enjoyed the book (except for the Kindle formatting, which won’t be a problem for others as it is available as a hardback copy only).

Some of my favorite recipes are Deb’s Famous Chicken Salad (I love any chicken salad with grapes and nuts in it), the Chocolate Brickle (which has a surprise ingredient), Sweet Potato Home Fries-OK, who am I kidding, I pretty much like all of them I’ve tried so far!!

If you are looking for a way to streamline and de-stress mealtimes, Too Blessed to Be Stressed is definitely a book you want to check out!
