Finding Intimacy with God in the Busyness of Life

mary heartAre you a Mary in a Martha world?  Or, you could be a Martha bogged down with feelings of inadequacy, stress, self-imposed responsibilities.  Joanna Weaver, in “Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World”, invites us into an intimacy with Jesus no matter which personality we are like.

Weaver’s spiritual insights teach us that there is a better way–Jesus’ way.  We can be Mary, completely devoted to God, and Martha, taking our responsibilities seriously and creatively, at the same time.  She shows us that prioritizing our time and staying organized can help us achieve a life of joy and intimacy with Christ.

A twelve-week companion Bible study is included as well as a wealth of great resources in the Appendices, including a simple plan for a half day of prayer.
