About this item

Updated with a new 12 week companion Bible study, 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.

Our ladies bible study is doing this book for our session this spring. So far the ladies love it. Joanna Weaver does really well at conveying how to be more Christ-like in modern times. If you choose to order this item and have it delivered "site-to-store", be aware that it took the maximum time for delivery.

Ordered this for a ladies book study. I was pleased to see that the book I ordered from Walmart was the same the other ladies paid more for at bookstores. It's probably one of the best books of this type I've read, really inspiring me in how my faith can grow.
