Beyond Me - Part 13: Interview with Kathi Macias

Continuing the interview with Kathi Macias, author of the new book Beyond Me: Living a You-First Life in a Me-First World (New Hope, 2008):

Is there anything I didn’t touch on that you’d like to say?

KM: First, thank you for hosting me on this blog tour, Dianne, and for taking the time to come up with such thoughtful questions and insights. I pray your readers will be blessed by what we’ve discussed—but more than that, will buy the book and/or do whatever God directs to help them draw closer to the Father’s heart. For whether Jesus is “at the door,” ready to return, or whether that great event is still years or generations away, it is a fact that our days are numbered and each of us is drawing close to the time when we will pass from this earth into eternity. May we do so wrapped in the righteousness of Jesus and the unconditional love and forgiveness of the Father.

One more question: What’s your next project? Are you working on another book?

KM: My next book releases in February 2009 (six months from now) from the same publisher: New Hope. The title is How Can I Run a Tight Ship When I'm Surrounded By Loose Cannons?

Then there are two more coming right behind Loose Cannons.

My Son, John is a novel about a family that is devastated over the brutal murder of the maternal grandmother, and then is hit again when their 23-year-old son, John, is arrested for her murder (a story of unconditional love). That releases in March 2009, and the publisher is Sheaf House.

Then, in May 2009, I have another nonfiction book releasing called Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers Today (also from New Hope).

Thank you, Kathi, for this interview!

Wow! Kathi, the brutal murder story really struck me. It's been really difficult dealing with some of the issues our family has faced over the past few years. Nothing that big, but a lot of prayer has gone into the process of dealing with a couple of kids who went awry (for lack of a better word) and took the wrong path. They've changed their lives now, but that path was a problem.

Thank you for sharing so much, I'm looking forward to your next books too.
