There are numerous sermons and teachings about Mary and Martha. I’ve often wondered how Martha felt. She was the busy one but I think she longed to sit at Jesus feet like Mary. This book takes a look at the life of Mary and Martha in a way that I felt like I was there. Joanna is a great storyteller.
The subtitle is Finding Intimacy with God in the Busyness of Life. Joanna does a great job of telling us how to be still, and find this closeness with our Lord. He wants time with us. We need time with Him.
I like that she included the Salvation Prayer at the end of Chapter 1. The book is filled with Scripture. I received a lot of practical yet challenging advice. She covers topics such as worry, anxiety, the 3 deadly D’s, and balancing time with the Lord and serving Him. My book is highlighted, underlined and marked with post it notes. I will refer to it again and again.
There is a 12-week Bible study included for individuals or group.
I was very blessed reading this book. I would recommend to any woman who longs to spend intimate time with her Lord, yet cannot seem to find that time. I love chapter 5, Living Room Intimacy and chapter 6, Kitchen Service. So much wisdom in these pages!
