Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World
Updated with a new 12 week companion Bible study, Joanna Weavers popular book shows women how to blend intimacy with Jesus and service for Him. An invitation for every woman who feels she isn't godly enough...isn't loving enough...isn't doing enough. The life of a woman today isn't really all that different from that of Mary and Martha in the New Testament. Like Mary, you long to sit at the Lords feet...but the daily demands of a busy world just wont leave you alone. Like Martha, you love Jesus and really want to serve Him...yet you struggle with weariness, resentment, and feelings of inadequacy. Then comes Jesus, right into the midst of your busy Mary/Martha-life and He extends the same invitation He issued long ago to the two sisters of Bethany. Tenderly He invites you to choose "the better part"-a joyful life of "living-room" intimacy with Him that flows naturally into "kitchen service" for Him.
