    Joanna Weaver is the best-selling author of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World,Having a Mary Spirit, Lazarus Awakening, and the award-winning gift book With This Ring. Her articles have appeared in such publications as Focus on the Family, Guideposts,and HomeLife. Joanna and her pastor-husband, John, have three children and live in Montana. Visit her website at

    With nearly a million copies sold, Joanna Weaver's popular book shows women how to blend intimacy with Jesus and service for Him.

    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.

    This book includes a twelve-week Bible study.

    Also look for the ten-week DVD study pack companion product to this book, which includes three DVDs and a separate, revised and expanded study guide.

      This book was the one that I was looking for. I wanted a book that would teach me about religion since it has been over 40 years since I received my communion but in a way that pertains to today's struggles. It did both! It got me to look for other books that deal in religion in that matter. It was not only interesting but very enjoyable to read.

      We are reading this book in our Bible Study class at church and it has turned some of our members who do not read into readers. I'm not one for non-fiction but I love the way this book talks about dealing with worry and stress. It is great for a group setting or an individual setting.

      Verified Purchase

      This book was recommended to me. I am studying it with 4 other women and purchased 5 additional copies for the 5 signicant women in my life. It is one of the best books I've read EVER. Joanna Weaver does an excellent job of painting word pictures that speak volumes. In these days of "busyness" she calls us to slow down and "be with God" rather than wear ourselves out "doing for Him." Even my husband is enjoying the book and finding his life changed for the better.
