Description (Publisher Website)
With humor and relevance, Kathi Macias shares her journey and struggle with Proverbs 31, ultimately discovering the natural progression of growing in grace. The course of our lives and growth in grace may lead to a different destination than originally planned. In the process, we can relinquish the dream of perfection and give up trying to control all those loose cannons threatening the tight ship we are determined to run—but can’t—and instead learn to trust the Captain of our ship to steer us safely home.

This book is a riot! I found myself laughing out loud as I read this account of the author's quest to be the perfect Proverbs 31 Superwoman. The pages are full of her humorous and yet honest journey through the stages of her spiritual life, leading the reader to discover the secret of resting in the character of the Lord. Although the book is funny, it's not fluff reading by any stretch of the imagination. Each anecdote/chapter is fairly short and ends with a 'Making it Personal" question and Bible verse to further drive home the topic. This book would make an excellent resource for a Bible study group or for a personal growth journal the reader could keep. This book would be the perfect gift for Christians young and old at any point in their spiritual walk. Everyone will find something to relate to in this book.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
