Everyone loves to receive a gift. The more elaborate the wrapping and package, the greater the anticipation and excitement to unwrap the package and see what's inside. This year, readers can experience the same anticipation for the holidays as they learn how to unwrap their own Christ-centered joy in time for Christmas. In her new release Unwrapping Martha's Joy, author Brenda Poinsett helps readers unwrap the best present of all--a renewed sense of worship in their heart and home. Using Luke 10 and the beloved sisters Mary and Martha as the scriptural basis for the book, Poinsett gives readers a fun and lighthearted look at Martha's personality and how her homemaking skills were an actual benefit. Through 25 brief chapters, readers will unwrap the secrets of Martha's joy. Readers will be encouraged to embrace and adapt their own Martha-like characteristics as they create a Mary-inspired Christmas--a season where Christ is the center of the holiday season.
