Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World
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.
Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World is not just a book — now embraced by hundreds of thousands of women — but an invitation for every woman who’s ever felt she isn’t godly enough, isn’t loving enough, isn’t doing enough.
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.
