You long to serve God with grace and strength, to reflect Christ in every word and action. Yet you find yourself continually struggling to bring that vision to life in your daily walk.
At our very core, every one of us is a “twisted sister” within whom the flesh and spirit battle constantly for control. We are afflicted with spiritual schizophrenia, the disconnect between our “good girl” desire to put Jesus first and our “bad girl” realities that crowd our thoughts and push him out of the way.
In this life-changing book, Joanna Weaver, author of the perennial bestseller, Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World, directs your gaze past your own shortcomings to the God who stands ready, willing, and able to make a new woman out of you. She equips you with biblical insights and practical tools to partner with Christ, inviting him into the hidden places of your soul and giving him full permission to redeem and renovate.
Drawing on the stories of biblical Marys and others whose experience with God transformed their lives, Joanna shows how you can find the hope, healing, wholeness, and joy your heart longs for. Having a Mary Spirit will launch you toward lasting personal transformation–soul-deep change that results in a complete makeover, from the inside out.
Includes a 12-week Bible study for both individual reflection and group discussion

We all have our core issues; struggles of discouragement, self-worth, pride, fear, bitterness, gossip, envy, lies, and ingratitude. These must be identified and destroyed before we can be the woman God created us to be. Yet it isn't our own doing that brings about change. As Weaver points out, being with Jesus Christ isn't enough: we need His Spirit in us. Step-by-step, Joanna strives to bring the reader closer to His Spirit. Included in this book are many beneficial sidebars that offer practical advice for our journey.
I found Having a Mary Spirit to be a wonderful encouragement for my own Christian life. With chapters such as "A Mary Heart," "Twisted Sisters," "Mind Control," "The Flesh Women Diet," and "Spirit Led," Joanna instills in the reader a desire to seek a change in her own life. Through humorous anecdotes, Joanna shares with the reader from her own experience and warns her of the pitfalls she might uncover in her own journey to create a Mary-like spirit. Janice LaQuiere, Christian Book Previews.com
"Once again, Joanna Weaver guides us gently, lovingly, yet firmly along the life-changing path of righteousness. Her honesty about her own struggles assures us we're not alone. And her commitment to biblical truth reminds us God will be with us every step of the way. I promise you'll emerge from this reading experience a changed woman!"
Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Bad Girls of the Bible
"Reading Having a Mary Spirit is like having a cherished friend visit and speak right to my heart. As someone who loved Having a Mary Heart in Martha World, this second book focuses on intimacy with Christ, but it also takes us deeper, showing us--through personal anecdotes and touching stories--the joy found in turning ourselves over for a holy makeover. If you're ready for a transformed spirit, you'll adore this book!"
Tricia Goyer, award-winning author of eight books including Generation NeXt Parenting
"It seems the most authentic books are the ones that inch their way out of an ordinary life and quietly speak of all that is eternal. That is the case with Having a Mary Spirit. This personal and life-pondering book will strengthen and soothe the places in your spirit where your everyday life has left you parched. Drink deeply!"
Robin Jones Gunn, Bestselling author of Sisterchicks® on the Loose! and Take Flight!
Weaver spends 16 delightfully entertaining and spiritually hefty chapters challenging and entreating women to allow God entrance to the hearts inner places for a "soul-surgery" of sorts. She discusses guarding ones heart from distractions and cynicism, bringing thoughts under control, honing a fearless, courageous attitude, and learning to adopt a discerning, malleable and servant-minded spirit. Weavers insight is keen and far-reaching, patient and practical. …Weaver has a way of approaching even the most tried subject matter with a neighborliness that both charms and enthralls.

lil old school marm5 Stars Out Of 5God has a holy makeover waiting for you!June 4, 2015lil old school marmQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In "Having a Mary Spirit" Joanna helps us realize how we all have a "Flesh Woman" inside us that is constantly fighting against our good-girl desire to follow the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Flesh Woman seeks instant satisfaction. She attempts to make us feel bad and inadequate when it seems that God doesn't answer our prayers like we want when in reality he has answered in the way that is best for us in the long run. This book is a great read for a group or alone. It includes a study guide in the back that helps the reader reflect on each chapter and encourages further Bible study with suggested scripture readings.

I love Joanna's writing style and how she digs in deep with scripture, bringing out solid Truth and encouragement to live a life of loving Jesus better. This is a great practical book with very applicable applications in moving forward in our journey with Jesus. I highly recommend this book!
selenaburgin5 Stars Out Of 5The "to-do" list is not the most important thingJune 3, 2015selenaburginQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I tend to be a "Martha", always trying to make it through a to-do list and getting stressed that others don't find it as important as me. This book was so good for me! I need to be reminded what is really important and check my attitude, my priorities and my focus. Thank you Joanna, once again. What a great book!
Claudia5 Stars Out Of 5Great book/study!June 1, 2015ClaudiaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was almost a 'must' to follow the previous one (Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World)....but it is just as enriching as a book and study by itself. Joanna Weaver continues to provide practical insights and advice to help the reader draw yet a little closer to the Savior. Even though the book contains a study guide I would recommend getting the separate study guide, or better yet, get the DVD pack by the same name. It makes an excellent companion for individual or group study!
