Letter from Joanna

With so many wonderful Bible studies available, I’m honored that you have chosen my book Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World: Finding Intimacy with God in the Busyness of Life.

When my publisher suggested I expand the original Bible study and add video sessions, I was excited! After spending so long thinking about and studying the lives of Mary and Martha, two sisters Jesus considered dear friends, I’m delighted to share with you what I’ve learned. From their encounter with the Savior, I believe we can discover rich insights and deep truths that have the power to change our lives.

For God longs for relationship with you, my friend. It is the purpose for which you and I were made. And it is the purpose for which Jesus came to earth—so that, through His death and resurrection, we might be reconciled to a Father who loves us more than we could ever imagine. A Father who has provided everything necessary so that you and I could daily experience His presence. Right here and right now. Smack dab in the busyness of life.

I’m excited to take this journey with you. Something beautiful happens when we take time to sit at Jesus’ feet, individually and corporately. As we make ourselves available, He makes Himself known to us. As we pour out our hearts in sweet communion, Jesus pours His life into us.

So take off your apron and lay aside your duties for a while. Come enjoy the incredible invitation of friendship Jesus extended to Mary and Martha—and to you and me as well.

Come discover the secret to having a Mary heart in a Martha world.

Becoming His,
