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 ...more

If you are reading this book - get ready to laugh! It is full of humor, much of which I am sure, only a woman/mother can really understand. Like the spontaneous release of milk upon hearing ANY child cry in the story found below in the first chapter.

Each chapter reads like a daily devotion - usually starting with a scripture and ending with a prayer - and some "Faith in Action" questions. I did not sit down and read this book straight through, though it could be done. I chose to read one (or a

I am enjoying this book so much. I haven't made my way completely through it as I am enjoying it. It's chapters are set up as daily devotions and that is why I haven't finished it. I plan on finishing it though. I am enjoying one devotional a day.

The devotionals are great - they are written in a down-to-earth way by another mom who goes through normal life with herself and her kids. I enjoy her stories and her insights into her behavior and how God can help us get through these moments. So far a

A delightful little book full of wisdom and humor. I was not familiar with Debora M. Coty before picking up this book, but she's hysterical.

Debora uses humor and faith to offer encouragement and insight to those who often feel rundown and exhausted from our lives as mothers. Each short chapter covers a particular theme: Pregnancy, Repentance, Forgiveness, Motivation, Gratitude, Self-Image and Loving Your Neighbor (one of my favorites), to name a few. With quotes, scriptures, anecdotes and vigne

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 ...more
