Publisher's Description

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.

    My Yearly Christmas Read...and Re-Read

    I heard Brenda Poinsett speak at a Christmas women's event. She spoke about some of what they do in her family and how meaningful their particular Christmas traditions are to them. As she spoke, I could hear how different Christmas looked to her. The way her family chose to approach all things Christmas seemed to leave them with a happy anticipation beforehand and a feeling of joy and fulfillment when it was over. I, on the other hand, was secretly dreading Christmas more and more every year. Hmmm...something was wrong here.

    I bought "Unwrapping Martha's Joy" from her book table and took it home to read. It made such an impact on the Christmas that was fast approaching! It helped me to realize why I was dreading Christmas and how I could fix that. I ended up feeling that I had "permission" to make Christmas what I wanted it to be (which in my case meant getting rid of some of what had always seemed to be a requirement because everyone else does it) and create some space for what would make Christmas a sweet experience in our home. I plan to read this book again this year, as soon as I begin to feel that knot in my stomach that says, "Oh no, here comes Christmas!" By the way, this is not a book about how Americans are so awful in how we celebrate Christmas. Rather, It's an inspiring book of ideas to help you create the kind of Christmas for yourself and your loved ones that will draw all of you together in celebrating the One after Whom Christmas is named.
