The life of a woman today isn't really all that different from that of Mary and Martha in the New Testament. Like Mary, you long to sit at the Lord's feet, but the daily demands of a busy world just won't leave you alone. Like Martha, you love Jesus and really want to serve Him, yet you struggle with weariness, resentment and feelings of inadequacy. Using this familair story Weaver shows you how to find a balance of spending time with Jesus and how that can flow into a life of loving service. This gift edition includes a study guide for individual or group use. 272 pages, hardcover from Waterbrook Press.
Praise for Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World:
"Often a book fails to live up to its title, but Joanna Weavers Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World more than lives up to its promise. I found the book easy to read, personal, and well-written with a message much more than surface deep. The book probed, challenged, and encouraged me to live day by day as a Mary in a Martha world, while showing the positive qualities of both Mary and Martha personalities. Readers will be blessed!"
CAROLE MAYHALL, author of Come Walk with Me and Here I Am Again, Lord
"Joanna Weaver has a heart that sings. Whenever Im around her, she makes me smile. Her voice rings out true and clear in Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World. This book invites us to join in the chorus of daily communion with Christ, despite the pressures that threaten to silence us. Consider it as sheet music for your soul."
ROBIN JONES GUNN, best-selling author of The Glenbrooke series and The Christy Miller series
"Balance. Thats what it is all about, and Joanna Weaver has found it, described it, and called us to this wonderful, practical work. If you have ever struggled with how you can find one quiet moment while longing for a deep holy communion or if you have been discouraged because neither seems possible, you will be challenged and blessed by Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World !"
JAN S I LVIOUS, author of Foolproofing Your Life
"With candor, humor, and passion Joanna Weaver invites us to cultivate a Mary heart that delights in time with God and assigns him top priority. Yet she doesnt discard the service-oriented Martha. Instead, she wisely and practically models how to balance the Mary and Martha qualities in us all. I especially appreciate her thoughts on expressing lavish love to God and to humanity."
JUDITH COUCHMAN, Designing a Womans Life author and seminar leader
