Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World

Joanna Weaver
Also Available In
With nearly a million copies sold, Joanna Weaver's 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 Lord's feet...but the daily demands of a busy world just won't 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.

How can you make that choice? With her fresh approach to the familiar Bible story and its creative, practical strategies, Joanna shows 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.

This book includes a twelve-week Bible study.

Also look for the ten-week DVD study pack companion product to this book, which includes three DVDs and a separate, revised and expanded study guide.

I love Joanna's way of writing and she unpacked Mary and Martha in clear way. I enjoy the book that I finished reading it in one day.

I love this book. If you always feel like life is always busy and you find it hard to balance the responsibilities you have and just spending quiet alone time to really just stop for a moment and listen to God in silence, this book is definitely for you!

A Must Read for all the busy women in your life....
5 stars By Gianna, Jun 04 2016
Aren't we all too busy?  Finding it nearly impossible to keep up, let alone have meaningful and consistent quiet time.  The title of this book is what made me take it from the shelf...but it was the writing inside that led me to read it in record time - despite the busyness!  Very relatable and challenged me in areas I thought I had no room to move.  The author shares of her own personal journey (which is continual) in finding balance amongst the demands of work, family, serving in the community and the desire to grow in her relationship with the Lord --In a world where there never seems to be enough time or energy to do it all.  She wonderfully draws on the story of Mary  Martha and teaches how we can learn from both of these women - and in turn live a more balanced and meaningful life - closer to our Lord.
