How Can I Run a Tight Ship When I'm Surrounded by Loose Cannons

Author: Kathi Macias
Publisher: New Hope Publishers
ISBN: 978-1-59669-204-6
Genre: Inspirational/Christian life

When Kathi Macias decided to run a tight ship, and embark on a journey to become a Proverbs 31 woman, she discovered that it isn’t as easy as it sounds—especially with all the loose cannons rolling around on the deck.

Wisely, Kathi decided to ask a woman at church for her help and guidance on this journey. But little did Kathi expect this woman to dissolve in helpless laughter at the idea that she might be considered a Proverbs 31 woman. This mentor-to-be promptly sat Kathi down and shared with her a story that is guaranteed to make any woman blush, yet is a real learning tool when you consider that even though embarrassing moments may occur, you will find something to treasure out of that lesson.

Modern women find the Proverbs 31 woman quite difficult to emulate today. How can you get it all together, keep everything under control, and run a tight ship? After all, this biblical example is a perfect woman—an excellent wife, cherished mother, impeccable housekeeper, thriving entrepreneur—all rolled into one.

I laughed out loud several times as Kathi shared her journey and struggle with Proverbs 31, and learning the ultimate lesson, that we need to begin each day on our knees, completely dependent on God.

If you are embarking on a journey to become a Proverbs 31 woman (and who among us doesn’t want to be practically perfect) then I highly recommend HOW CAN I RUN A TIGHT SHIP WHEN I’M SURROUNDED BY LOOSE CANNONS. You will laugh your way to a better understanding of what being a Proverbs 31 woman really means.
Each chapter ends with a section called Making it Personal that offers one (or more) question(s) to get you thinking about what you read and relating it to your life. $13.99. 205 pages.
