Inspiring content for anyone

This book is an excellent reminder as to the fragility of our spirituality. The author takes you through her life as mother and wife and how she struggles and works at her prayer life and the balance between time for God and time for her family.

Wonderful

I had heard many friends recommend this book but didn't think it would be something I could relate to but I was clearly wrong. It hit home more times than I'd like to admit. Well worth it.💕

Loved the honesty

This author wrote from a place of honesty about her shortcomings, her lack of perfect practices (including housekeeping skills - THANK YOU!), and struggles with her faith, and really encouraged me that I can start where I am and that God will meet me there. Really enjoyed it!

Outstanding Book Poorly Edited For Audio

Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World is an insightful look at a heart that loves Jesus.

The books audio format is hard to navigate. Instead of breaking the book into clean single chapters so readers can move back and forth, someone took the quick road of putting two chapters per break. That means a 12 chapter book only has 6 chapters in audio. To get to the chapter you want, if it is the second one on that break, the reader has to listen through again the previous chapter before getting to the intended portion of text. It's just lazy, confusing editing of a great book.

Must Read!!!

This book is life changing. I have enjoyed every chapter and I can't wait to share it with others. I plan to do a ladies small group on it.
It's mind transforming with the right amount of encouragement and challenge. What a refreshing view of day to day life and the importance of knowing God intimately.

Great for Seekers

This is a great book for christian women. It helps you to better understand your own actions and those of your female friends. It will help you to choose that which is better!
