 Kathi Macias’ 12 Days of Christmas – Volume 1 – Rules of Engagement [Kindle Edition]

Twelve days before Christmas, in windblown Amarillo, Texas, Megan Bosworth works with her mother to decorate the house for Christmas.

Only a few months into her first teaching job, Megan has met and begun to date a handsome and popular teacher named Marty Givens. Marty has asked her to marry him and is pushing for her to agree so they can announce their engagement to their families on Christmas Eve. Megan is uncomfortable with the need to make the decision so quickly, though Marty insists he loves her and can’t live without her.
Then a salty old veteran at the Veterans’ Home where Megan volunteers gives her some unwitting but valuable advice on the “Rules of Engagement,” which helps her make her decision.

Book Description:

Emma Jean Cooper, nicknamed “Emma Jean Two” by her father, was born in 1966, in the small town of Crooked River, Arkansas, where poverty and prejudice were rampant. Emma Jean grew up with plenty of both, to the extent that her father was active in the Ku Klux Klan and exposed his daughter at an early age to the group’s clandestine activities. Her mother, who had been raised in a dysfunctional, abusive situation, was unable to cope with the death of her first daughter, also named Emma Jean, and so transferred that daughter’s identity to Emma Jean Two, claiming she was the reincarnation of her dead sister.

Emma Jean’s childhood was so traumatic and she experienced such extreme parental abuse and rejection that she spent much of her time daydreaming of a better life somewhere-anywhere-away from her family. Ironically it is an African-American classmate named Sadie Garret, a preacher’s daughter, who finally gives eighteen-year-old Emma Jean Cooper, daughter of an active Ku Klux Klan member, the courage she needs to escape her racist, abusive environment. Literally running for her life, Emma Jean hitchhikes to California in search of something better than the destructive existence she has so far endured.

The experiences of the next few years are beyond anything Emma Jean could ever have imagined, and ultimately serve only to turn her back toward home to confront the evil she thought she had escaped. Back in Crooked River, Emma Jean takes refuge with her former classmate Sadie and, eventually, in an African-American church, where she begins to learn the secret to overcoming her past and establishing her own identity for a positive future. Though loosely based on a compilation of true accounts, Emma Jean Reborn is purely a work of fiction.

MySonJohnKathiMacias  Murder. Could there be a more chilling word? Could it be any more horrible than to have a loved one killed, brutally and heartlessly, without obvious reason or motive? When Liz Peterson’s elderly mother is found viciously beaten to death in her home, Liz and her husband, Charles, along with their grown son, John, and teenage daughter, Sarah, are horrified beyond words. Their previously predictable, respectable lives seem to have vanished without a trace, as they struggle to make sense of a senseless act.

And then a second blow—more devastating, if possible, than the first—rocks them to their core. John is arrested for his grandmother’s murder. As what’s left of the Peterson family begins to crumble under the weight of loss and accusation, the Petersons’ longstanding Christian faith is put to the test in a way they could never have imagined, and unconditional love is stretched to its limits. Will family ties and relationships withstand such a crushing blow, or will evil succeed in dividing and conquering this once close and inseparable family?

Book Description:

Nathaniel Johnson is 11 years old, the son and grandson of ardent abolitionists. His mother, though not a supporter of slavery, believes they must obey the law—even laws that allow people to be bought and sold as chattel, and for those who help them escape to pay a great penalty. Caught between fear and the desire to do the right thing, Nathaniel is forced to come of age when the slavery issue ceases to be theoretical and becomes quite personal.

How Can I Run a Tight Ship when I’m Surrounded by Loose Cannons

The perfect woman—excellent wife, cherished mother, impeccable housekeeper,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. The course of our lives and growth in grace may very well lead to a different destination than originally planned. But in the process, we can finally relinquish the dream of perfection and give up trying to control every aspect of our lives—all those loose cannons that threaten 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.
