New Hope® Publishers announces the release of award-winning author Kathi Macias’s newest novel A Husband’s Christmas Prayer, a heartwarming tale of what happens—including the struggles—when ministry couples experience God leading somewhere new.
“It’s not quite Christmas without a Kathi Macias holiday tale. This is a sweet, relatable story of a young pastor’s wife who learns how to faithfully love her husband, children, and new community through changes, moves, and all that comes with a family life. Grab a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy this story of forgiveness, transition, and change.” —Susan G. Mathis, coauthor of Countdown for Couples: Preparing for the Adventure of Marriage and The ReMarriage Adventure: Preparing for a Lifetime of Love and Happiness.
“A Husband’s Christmas Prayer is an inspirational story of how to face discouragement, even when someone is following God closely. I enjoyed this book because it shows real life—especially in a pastor’s home. You’ll be rooting for Paul and Diana, as I did. Their narrative is a familiar one and shows God’s gentle helping hand.” —Kathy Collard Miller, speaker and author of more than 50 books including Choices of the Heart, part of the “Daughters of the King” Bible study series.
Multiple award-winning author Kathi Macias’s more than 40 books include the “Quilt” series, “Freedom” series, and the award-winning “Extreme Devotion” novels for New Hope Publishers.

The Excellence in Media Angel Award, San Diego Christian Writers Guild fiction awards, Golden Scroll Novel of the Year (Red Ink), Carol Award finalist (Red Ink), 2011 Author of the Year for BooksandAuthors.net, and an international writing contest grand prize are some of her credits.
