With nearly a million copies sold, Joanna Weaver’s popular book shows women how to blend intimacy with Jesus and service for Him.
A call for participation for each and every woman who feels she is not godly enough…is not loving enough…is not doing enough. The life of a woman today is not truly all that different from that of Mary and Martha in the New Testament. Like Mary, you long to take a seat at the Lord’s feet…but the day by day demands of a busy world just may not leave you alone. Like Martha, you love Jesus and truly wish 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 make a choice “the better part”-a joyful life of “living-room” intimacy with him that flows naturally into “kitchen service” for him.
How are you able to 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.
