Having A Mary Hearth in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver

Is your New Year’s “resolution” to develop a closer relationship with God?

Join us as we fellowship with other Christian women on this journey.

We will meet weekly on Tuesday nights starting

January 12 at 7:30 pm to 8:30-9ish.

The book we will use is: Having A Mary Hearth in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver.

“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-Mary’s and Martha’s alike-can draw closer to our Lord, deepening our devotion, strengthening our service, and doing both with less stress and greater joy.”

Let me know if you would like me to order a book for you ($8.50) by email on or before Tuesday, January 5 at janddgryp@southslope.net.
