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.

First Corinthians- Living Love When We Disagree

6 Week Online Bible Study

Get Course Access Today!

Course Description
First Corinthians Bible Cafe™ Study!! In this six-week study we will explore Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians to learn how we as Christians are to deal with differences and divisions–whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. We’ll discover that the answer is living and sharing the radical love of Jesus Christ, and we’ll unpack what this means and how we can live it out day by day.

Learn how to have open-ended discussions about modern topics and opportunities to cultivate unity- even when we disagree.

The Apostle Paul wrote his first letter to the Corinthians as a guide for handling disagreements in communities.In a time when society is so quick to judge others, Paul taught the Corinthians to stand above and live in love, even when it seemed impossible. Perhaps today we need to show love to those around us, even when we don’t have the same perspective. Everything is not all about ourselves, and Melissa Spoelstra’s study First Corinthians: Living Love When We Disagree gives practical advice on how to treat those around us in a loving, God-honoring way.

While we’re not always in disagreement with our fellow Christians, we may be divided in our families, neighborhoods, workplaces and communities. When we apply the Scriptures to our culture today, we’re presented with places for living love. When you participate in this study you’ll learn the Biblical methods for unity even when we disagree.

First Corinthians: Living Love Even When We Disagree by Melissa Spoelstra available from Abingdon, ChristianBooks, Amazon or other favorite bookstores. If you live internationally, we recommend the Kindle book which you can read on a tablet device or your computer.

“Living Love When We Disagree” is so timely in today’s cultural climate! Our leaders perceived this study to be very relevant to our lives. We’ll explore how to stay in unity when we disagree on denomination topics such as speaking in tongues or the role of women in the church. Or topics such as political elections. Even topics such as shadow banning and hiding Christian content from social media and search engine sites. Often we avoid the discussion because we don’t know how to find the common ground of unity.

This study covers these Christian topics: Communication, Rebellion, Differences, Unity and Love.
