An invitation for every woman who's ever felt 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, into the midst of your busy life, to extend the same invitation He issued long ago to the two sisters from Bethany.  Tenderly, He invites you to choose "the better part" - a joyful life of intimacy with Him that flows naturally into loving service.  With her fresh approach to the familiar Bible story, Joanna Weaver 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Joanna Weaver has a heart that sings. Whenever I’m around her, she makes me smile. Her voice rings out true and clear in Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World. This book invites us to join in the chorus of daily communion with Christ, despite the pressures that threaten to silence us. Consider it as sheet music for your soul.” Robin Jones Gunn, bestselling author of the Glenbrooke series and the Christy Miller series
“Balance. That’s what it is all about, and Joanna Weaver has found it, described it, and called us to this wonderful, practical work. If you have ever struggled with how you can find one quiet moment while longing for a deep holy communion or if you have been discouraged because neither seems possible, you will be challenged and blessed by Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World!” Jan Silvious, author of Foolproofing Your Life
“With candor, humor, and passion, Joanna Weaver invites us to cultivate a ‘Mary heart’ that delights in time with God and assigns him top priority. Yet she doesn’t discard the service-oriented Martha. Instead, she wisely and practically models how to balance the Mary and Martha qualities in us all. I especially appreciate her thoughts on expressing lavish love—to God and to humanity.” Judith Couchman, Designing a Woman’s Life author and leader
