You will not want to miss the opportunity to change your life and find the right balance for you.

She is the original Martha Stewart, the New Testament’s Proverbs 31 woman, and Israel’s answer to Betty Crocker -Joanna Weaver

Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World is 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.

Joanna Weaver knows the Mary heart. She has studied these women in Scripture and brings their story into our modern life.

Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver confronts a common challenge.

Being busy distracts us from intimacy with Jesus. Yet for many women, finding quiet time and sitting at the feet of Jesus seems impossible.

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.

For the Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World online Bible Cafe™ Study, you read two easy chapters a week. These chapters are based uponthe Biblical story of the two sisters- Martha and Mary. Packed with insight about busy lives and devoted lives, you will find this a well-balanced study. Many resources are included to help you find balance in your life.

All Things New: A Study on 2 Corinthians by Kelly Minter. The city of ancient Corinth was much like our own modern-day cities: a melting pot of electrifying cultural experiences to be had, along with the myriad pitfalls of spiritual depravity. Still, Paul wrote to the church of God in Corinth. Meaning God’s church is meant to thrive in any city and every circumstance in which we find ourselves. Paul’s letter is as timely as ever.

 This study will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.
