More About Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver
 
 
 
Overview
"The life of a woman today isn't really all that different from that of Mary and Martha in the New Testament", says Joanna Weaver. Like Mary, they love Jesus and long to sit at his feet...but the daily demands of a busy world just won't leave them alone. And like Martha, they love Jesus and really want to serve him...but they also struggle with weariness, resentment, and feelings of inadequacy.

Then comes Jesus, right into the midst of a busy Mary/Martha life -- and he extends the same invitation he issued long ago to the two sisters of Bethany. Tenderly he invites women to choose "the better part" -- a joyful life of living-room intimacy with him that flows naturally into "kitchen service" for him.

How can women make that choice? That's the whole point of the unique and insightful new book by Joanna Weaver, Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World. Its fresh approach to the familiar Bible stories and its creative, practical strategies are designed to show how all of us -- Marys and Marthas alike -- can draw closer to our Lord, deepening our devotion, strengthening our service, and doing both with less stress and greater joy.
