Product Description

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? Now updated with a new 12 week companion Bible study, 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.

Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

"Often a book fails to live up to its title, but Joanna Weaver’s Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World more than lives up to its promise. I found the book easy to read, personal, and well-written with a message much more than surface deep. The book probed, challenged, and encouraged me to live day by day as a Mary in a Martha world, while showing the positive qualities of both Mary and Martha personalities. Readers will be blessed!"
-Carole Mayhall, author of Come Walk with Me and Here I Am Again, Lord

"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 , best-selling author of 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 seminar leader

    This review was written for Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World.
    Reading Joannas books have been a great lesson in learning to sit at the feet of Jesus. Far too often the busyness of life gets in my way, but Joannas words have a way of pulling me back and enabling me to refocus on my personal relationship with Christ. Her books are engaging and easy to read, filled with personal experiences and humor, all the while pointing you to Jesus.

    This review was written for Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World.
    I believe that for each and every woman the story of Mary and Martha resonates deep within our hearts. And then the struggle begins. How fair is it that Martha does all the work while Mary gets to just sit and listen at the feet of Jesus? Or perhaps the struggle ishow can Martha not understand that Mary has chosen the better thing? Waitaren't we supposed to be servants of Christ? How will the work get done if the women don't pick up the slack? Well, Joanna does a beautiful job of finding peace in the balance of work and worship. In Having a Mary Heart In a Martha World, Joanna walks us through to finding the balance that brings service from a deep and abiding relationship with Christ. She shows us how we can deepen our devotion and strengthen our service. All while doing less with a greater peace and joy. If you long for that intimate 'living room' relationship with Jesus...grab Joanna's book and a cup of coffee/tea and dig into it's treasures. You'll be glad you did!

    Are you a Mary or a Martha? Has anyone ever asked you that question? Read this book and you will explore questions and answers to this and other questions about Mary and Martha and today's world. Great for Bible Studies and individuals.

    Life Changing! Yes, for me, this book as been life changing. I am reading it for the 3rd time, as there is so much I don't want to forget. God has definitely been using this book to speak to my heart. I knew in my heart that I tended to be a Martha and I am so excited to be learning why and how to make the needed changes in my life. It would make a wonderful Bible Study for any group.
