About the book
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. In More Beauty, Less Beast, women will find simple, practical techniques for embracing the true beauty rightfully theirs as cherished daughters of the King. 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.
I do not consider myself as someone who is focused on fashion or looks. I am not a slob, but I also do not worry about what others will think of how I look either. I have never, at least in my adult life, worried about leaving the house without make-up, in fact, I rarely wear make-up and when I do, it is to enhance what I have, not to cover anything up. In the beginning of this book, I felt it was directed at people who are more concerned about fashion and what others think. However, if I ignored the handful of paragraphs that dealt with that, I found there was lots of good and practical information in the book. There are great scriptural references (however, I would have liked them to have all been from one version of the Bible instead of several different ones) and some wonderful quotes. Each chapter also offers several tips for improving your outer, inner and spiritual beauty and the chapters end with some questions to help you put your personal plan into place.
I recommend this for females who feel they could improve the beauty of their life, whether it be physical beauty, inner beauty, or the beauty of their lives.
