I saw the title of this book and it really caught my attention. I have been a person who worries for most of my life. At least as long as I can remember. My mom used to call me a little worry wart. She would often use the phrase “don’t make a mountain out of a mole hill”. I was always a kid who would “what if” things to death. Being concerned about things and worring about them before they even came to pass.
Since I am a person who worries out of habit now, I thought this book might just be a great book for me to read and I was right. Even though I don’t worry near as much as I used to, I still worry about things more than most people do at least I think I do.
As I read through Fear, Faith and a Fistful of Chocolates I loved how the author used stories of people with those fears and how they deal with them. Not only are the stories great but the author has a great sense of humor and I found myself laughing out loud at time over some of her sayings. At the end of each chapter there are a few question or things to ponder. These sections are called “More Pluck, Less Chicken”.
In the books she address pretty much any fear that you might have and gives advice on how to work through those fears. She has many references to scripture throughout the book. She also has a whole section of the book on Protecting yourself with the armor of God.
If you have fears and you want to start on the path of leaving them behind please do pick up this book. Not only do I believe this book would be helpful but I think you will find it also very entertaining and at times really funny.
Just so you know I was given this book for free to review. But the opinions expressed are all my own. Here is a little more about the book and be sure to RSVP for the Facebook party and Kindle Fire giveaway!
