Book Review: Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World

I read this book several years ago.  I remembered feeling like as a type A woman who desires to be loved through acts of service, this book gave me a voice.

This time reading this book I was reminded of how Jesus' words to Martha have universal and timeless meaning.  Each chapter is written very clearly, without flowery language and yet the examples presented are impactful.  As women we are often overwhelmed with tasks.  Important tasks, but none the less a to do list that can distract us.  Each chapter breaks down the emotions wrapped around the need to balance sitting still and listening to God with accomplishing all the daily tasks needed to be done each day.

There are several discussion questions included in the back of the book for each of the 12 chapters.  The chapters themselves do not take long to read, making this a very easy group discussion book.  There is a reason why over 1 million copies of this book have been sold.  This book is an encouragement to any women trying to balance life in a way that reflects Jesus.
