Debi Coccellato’s new book, Car Dancing, ($16.49, paperback, 9781498450492; $8.99, e-book, 9781498450508) tells a fictional but relatable story that will encourage and empower readers to trust God through life’s debilitating situations or events, such as abuse, rejection and fear. The story follows Kolby Dawson’s journey from fear to freedom. She’s a quirky young woman who has perfected the art of avoidance. Unexpected circumstances force her to decide whether to face her fears or run. She makes her decision to run and escapes to Kendall Cove, Oregon. Her plans for a life of anonymity and freedom is short lived. The fear that rides just under the surface returns with vengeance. To find the freedom she is yearning for, she must let go of her painful past and relinquish it to God. With the continued encouragement of her one loyal friend, Phoebe, and her unexpected safe place, Ruben, her view of God slowly changes. Unfortunately, not all of Kolby’s new acquaintances have her best interest at heart, and her past history soon resurfaces in a sinister way. By facing her worst fears, she learns that God’s plan for her life is far greater than the pain from her past, redefining her perception of herself and of God. It’s a powerful story with lasting impact.

“I hope readers will learn to laugh through the hard things, take full advantage of their blessings, be thankful in all things, as well as recognize God working in their lives and how to walk in the Word,” states the author. “Most of all, I hope they will learn to let go of things that destroy what God is doing in their lives.”

Debi Coccellato is a pastor’s wife and together they run a full-time ministry focused on helping men gain freedom from bondage and find their fulfillment in the Lord. In her book, she takes from her own life’s experiences, creating characters and telling stories of brave women who have dared to trust God and overcome some of life’s biggest struggles. She desires to encourage, empower, and entertain readers, and most importantly point them to the Father who will help them meet their life’s biggest challenges as victors.
