An invitation for every woman who feels she isn't godly enough...isn't loving enough...isn't doing enough
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.
Then comes Jesus, right into the midst of your busy Mary/Martha life-and he extends the same invitation he issued long ago to the two sisters of Bethany. Tenderly he invites you to choose "the better part"-a joyful life of "living-room" intimacy with him that flows naturally into "kitchen service" for him.
How can you make that choice? With her fresh approach to the familiar Bible story and its creative, practical strategies, Joanna shows how all of us-Marys and Marthas alike-can draw closer to our Lord, deepening our devotion, strengthening our service, and doing both with less stress and greater joy.
We all maneuver through life with trials, joyous times, sad times, hurtful times, shocking times and the list goes on. Read morePublished 28 days ago by Love2Read

Not broad enough in age span - older people (even retired people!) can be "Martha's". Some content repetitious - could have used many few pages to get the points across. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Susan Marseilles

This book goes a lot deeper than I thought it would when we began our group study. God is using this book to change the lives of several of us of varying ages.Published 1 month ago by hastep
