The perfect woman – excellent wife, cherished mother, impeccable housekeeper, and thriving entrepreneur – all rolled into one.  The Proverbs 31 woman looms large for Christian women today.  Getting it all together.  Keeping everything under control. Running a tight ship.  But despite our best efforts it seems there are always loose cannons rolling around the deck.

With humor and relevance, Kathi Macias shares her journey and struggle with Proverbs 31, ultimately discovered that there is natural progression of growing in grace.

Questions follow each chapter to help personalize content.  Author is funny, yet vulnerable and serious in her approach.
