    The Perfect Read

    ?Fortunately for frantically frazzled females who have phenomenally full plates, author and one-time maxed-out maven of Martha-mania, Debi Stack, has learned to purge performance and perfectionism, while piling on wisdom, warmth, whimsy, and wit. To the woman barely dangling at the end of her rope, Debi throws out a lifeline of solid Biblical insights and practical solutions for simplifying life¿s maze, while amplifying its meaning. This book is filled with help, hope,and humor, all borne from Debi¿s personal challenges and successes. Because of her willingness to change with God¿s help, Debi progressed from living maxed-out, to living to the max¿from experiencing the fracture of many things to enjoying the fulfillment of ¿one thing¿ and the One Who really matters. Debi is an incredibly articulate, gifted writer, which is the only perfection allowed.Martha to the Max is the maximum in reading enjoyment!

    How Did She Do It?

    How did she do it? How did Debi Stack peg me so...um...dare I say...PERFECTLY? This book is an excellent read for anyone who IS a 'Martha/Type A,' knows a 'Martha/Type A,' or loves a 'Martha/Type A.' It's funny...but loaded with truth! Highly suggested!
