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. 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 intimacy with him that flows naturally into loving service. 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. Unabridged. Read by Jill Gajkowski. 6 CDs. 9 hours.

Review 1 for Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World - Audiobook on CD
Date:November 8, 2007
I am thoroughly enjoying the audio book of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World on CD as Jill Gajkowski reads the beautifully written book by Joanna Weaver. Ms. Weaver has such insight into the lives of the modern day Martha and Mary. I highly recommend this reading for all women who find themselves too busy to sit at the feet of Our Lord, even if briefly, each day.
