Reading this amazing book, during a difficult part of my life brought so much joy and light in my darkness... It helped me understand and helped me make time with Jesus to talk to him daily...Thank you Joanna for such a beautiful book...
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.
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.
