Synopses & Reviews
An invitation for overachievers to discover what it means to rest as God's daughters without compromising their God-given design as doers.
Are you a Martha who feels guilty for not being a Mary? Do you want to sit at Jesus's feet as Mary did--but you feel the need to get things done? In Made Like Martha, Katie M. Reid invites you to exchange try-hard striving for hope-filled freedom without abandoning your doer's heart in the process.
Through her own story and rich biblical illustrations, Katie reminds you that it's not important whether you sit and listen or stand and work. What matters is that your spiritual posture is one of a beloved daughter who knows she doesn't need to earn God's love. Your desire to get things done is not something to temper but something to embrace as you serve from a place of strength and peace--knowing Christ already did His most important work for you on the cross.
With "It Is Finished" activities at the end of each chapter and a fiveweek Bible study included, Made Like Martha helps you find rest from striving even as you celebrate your God-given design to "do."
"Made Like Martha will infuse your life with a fresh perspective as you learn both to embrace your God-given personality and also discover how--and when--to rest and retreat." --Karen Ehman, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and New York Times bestselling author of Keep It Shut
