In "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.
Joanna digs deep into scripture and brings out solid Truth
June 3, 2015
I have read this book twice now and have loaned it out and recommended it to many different ladies in my church. 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!
I 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!
This 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!
I just finished this study with a group of ladies from our area... The transformation we all saw was beautiful! We were healed and set free through the precious Word of God and teachings of Joanna Weaver!
