Publisher's Description

If God chooses to love imperfect people, then maybe perfection shouldn't be our focus. In Beyond Being Good, Katrina McCain explores the depths of a fullness in Christ, by depending on His goodness and not our own. By chronicling her own personal stories of victory and defeat, she offers her readers a vibrant and transparent challenge to live above social acceptance and personal perfection by delving into a deeper understanding of God’s goodness through a total experience of His perfect love.
Beyond Being Good is an encouragement for every woman that her ability to be good has nothing to do with experiencing God's perfect love or walking in her calling and mission.

Editorial Reviews

Katrina’s words are like those of a sweet friend, sharing her stories and struggles while inviting you to dig deep into how God is unfolding a perfect, beautiful story in your own life- no matter how broken it may feel. I love Katrina’s perspective and encouragement to lean into your faith - to take hold of God's outstretched hands wholeheartedly and without abandon. Beyond Being Good was a joy to read and is sure to encourage and inspire women everywhere.
Every “good girl” needs to read this book! Katrina challenges her readers to move from pretense to substance in their relationship with Christ. Her honesty and transparency encourages us to let our hair down and be real with God. Katrina’s words are convicting, yet inspiring; her thoughts richly metaphoric, yet down-to-earth. It is packed with so many pearls of wisdom, that I consider the entire book a gem! Beyond Being Good is destined to catalyze a generation who is more than nominally Christian, one who boldly lives out their identity in Christ!
Katrina’s heart for people is evident in every page of this book. A relevant massage for this generation and the ones to come; she explores her past to show how she fought through the “being good” trap and into being profoundly present and whole. This book takes you on a journey of self-reflection, ultimately ending in the loving embrace of our Heavenly Father. Katrina opens her readers up to be authentic in their vulnerability by simply saying, “I’ll go first”!
As the standards of morality shift all around us, Katrina repositions the Gospel as the true test of goodness. Beyond Being Good is going to unleash the next generation of female Christ followers to move past a shallow desire for approval to a passion filled calling to serve Jesus. Her words and her genuine heart are evident and I am so thrilled for each reader who dares to turn these pages.
Katrina writes, ‘When you’re loved well, you live well.’ These words of truth bring hope to everyone on a quest to live life to its fullest. The author illuminates hope to broken spirits and healing to wounded hearts. To learn we can truly live with integrity, character, and Christ’s redeeming love make this a must-read! I highly recommend this addition to your personal library.
I’m grateful to know that I’m not alone in this pursuit of being more than just a “good girl”. I believe this book has offered us all a challenge to increase, not only in staying far away from the lies of “Checklist Christianity”, but most importantly that we truly dive into the depth of our personal intimacy with the Lord. This book encourages the reader to fully receive and trust God's love so that when the day comes, we can be His ready bride! All I have to say is, ‘consider the challenge accepted.’”
When I read a book, I desire to feel connected to the author and a sense that each word I'm reading is backed with substance beyond mere opinion. Katrina writes in a way that is powerfully vulnerable, amusing and rooted in God's Word. Her use of scripture and personal stories intertwine her message in a refreshingly authentic way and I can truly say I closed this book with a better sense of who I want to be as a woman and as a Christian! Beyond Being Good is a celebration of the transformation that God desires to create in each of us, no matter where we may find ourselves in our current situations.
Katrina's message expands our sometimes 2-dimensional thinking, as Christian women. We get so caught up in the doing for others, personal successes, and personal pride in ourselves, that we forget it's all about a RELATIONSHIP with the Father, not just an acquaintance with Him. This book comes at the right time for women who are seeking more in their relationship with Christ than just doing the right things and being good.
Katrina's words truly ministered to me in several situations and I have no doubt that others will discover healing through her vulnerability and transparency. Her use of scripture and personal stories tug at familiar places and points directly to our loving Savior! This book is sure to be a blessing to those in need of healing from the deception of perfection and for others who will keep it as a reminder of the commitment they made to God and to themselves. So sweet. So sincere. So genuine!
