Product Description

In How Can I Run a Tight Ship When I'm Surrounded by Loose Cannons?, author Kathi Macias takes a humorous look at the Proverbs 31 woman, debunking the spiritual superwoman myth. Funny, yet serious in her approach, she uses the analogy of human development to her spiritual life (crawl, walk, run, fly, rest) as she encourages women to let go of perfection and trust the captain of our ship, God. Each chapter ends with a "Making it Personal" section with a few though provoking questions. Paperback.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Kathi Macias
Located in: Homeland, CA
Submitted: January 23, 2009

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I've always been a type-A, firstborn, overachiever, control freak, so it's no surprise I would finally write the story of my spiritual journey in a book about loose cannons!

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted other people (women, in particular) to see the fallacy of trying to be the "every woman" and do all things at all times for all people. It just doesn't work!

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  A sense of how to strive for excellence in serving God and others--while abandoning the hopeless and exhausting pursuit of perfection.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  It forced me to re-examine my own life and to be honest and vulnerable about my foibles and failures--funny or not!

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I have many, but I love anything by Susan Meissner or Mary DeMuth.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  The season of life you're currently in will pass all too quickly, so stop striving to perfect it and just relax and enjoy the blessings God has given you in the midst of it.
