An invitation for every woman whos ever felt she isnt godly enough, isnt loving enough, isnt doing
The life of a woman today isnt really all that different from that of Mary and Martha in the
New Testament. Like Mary, you long to sit at the Lords feet…but the daily demands of a busy world just wont 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, into the midst of your busy life, to extend the same invitation he issued long ago to the two sisters from Bethany. Tenderly, he invites you to choose “the better part”-a joyful life of intimacy with him that flows naturally into loving service.
With her fresh approach to the familiar Bible story, Joanna 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.
Updated with a new 12-week companion Bible study, Weaver's popular book showswomen how to blend intimacy with Jesus and service for him.
