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.
