Item description for Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World: Finding Intimacy With God in the Busyness of Life (Walker Large Print Books) by Joanna Weaver...
Overview 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? Now updated with a new 12 week companion Bible study, Weaver 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 large print edition includes 14-16 point print.

Loved this book! Jul 19, 2008
I would definitely recommend this book. I was barely through the first chapter and was absolutely amazed at how much I was NEEDING to read this book. It fit my life perfectly. I love the way she words things and labels things throughout the book. About the time I would think the book couldn't match me any more perfectly, I'd read something that would fit right in once again! I'm not even finished reading it as of yet but I know it's one of those books that I will read many more times in the future! A+ recommendation!
An awesome book! Jul 10, 2008
I am so excited about this book. So many women today just don't understand the balance we need to maintain in life as women and Christians. They are unaware of the central ground of being at the feet of Jesus all the while serving in the capacity of the world we live in. JoAnna Weaver does get it and she bears her heart in her book, "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World."
In twelve revelation and scripture packed chapters, JoAnna takes you to the core of what you need to balance it all.... a relationship with Jesus Christ.
You'll be drawn to chapters like: "Lord, Don't You Care?", Living Room Intimacy, and Balancing Work and Worship and those are just a few. I couldn't put the book down. The message is biblical, the concepts are practical, and the way it is written is very personable and you can very easily relate to her.
Wonderful tool for living! Jul 2, 2008
I have enjoyed this book on my own, with two friends as a study, and also as a book club selection. I've read it twice and have put it on my "short list" of books to read annually. There is so much good information to help me grow in my spiritual walk with the Lord!
