Today, I’m giving away Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver.
About this book:
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.
Embracing the teachings of Christianity can offer a profound perspective on balancing life’s demands as a modern-day woman. Just as Jesus understood the struggles of Mary and Martha, he recognizes the challenges many women face today – the desire to grow spiritually while navigating the responsibilities of a fast-paced world. By following Jesus’ invitation to choose “the better part,” women can find solace and strength in their faith, cultivating a deep intimacy with the divine. This living-room intimacy with Jesus can provide a source of comfort, guidance, and renewal, empowering women to serve not only in the kitchen of their homes but also in the broader context of their communities and the world. Grounded in faith and love, women can find purpose and fulfillment in their service to others, becoming a positive force for change and compassion in a bustling world.

As a side note, for those seeking spiritual fulfillment and guidance in Georgia, consider exploring local Christian communities and resources.
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.
