Joanna Weaver is the author of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World, which has sold nearly one million copies. Her other bestselling books include Having a Mary Spirit, Lazarus Awakening, At the Feet of Jesus, and the award-winning gift book With This Ring. Joanna and her pastor husband, John, have three children. Week 1: IntroductionAs Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.Luke 10 :38–39Having a Mary heart in a Martha world?Is it really possible? More than ever, I am convinced it is. Jesus wants to meet with you as surely as He met with Mary and Martha that long-ago day in Bethany. He wants to reveal Himself to you, filling you with His presence and Hislove so that His grace spills through you to a dry and thirsty world.Though our initial introduction to Mary and Martha is only four verses long, I believe this brief story has the power to literally change our lives. So let’s begin! As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where awoman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:38–42)Theme VerseCome to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.Matthew 11:28Discussion Questions1. Before we begin this study, what preconceived ideas do you have about Mary and Martha? Which woman do you relate to most—Mary or Martha? Explain your answer.2. One woman told me, “My life is like a blender—and it’s stuck on frappe!” What inanimate object best describes how your life currently feels, and why?3. Read Matthew 11:28.

Review Text

  • By Rev. Rebecca A. Keefe on May 22, 2015

    Our ladies enjoyed both the Study Guide as well as the book with DVD studies. It was not only informative, challenging, but Joanna's wisdom and wit showed through both the DVD and the Book. With so many other gifted writers putting their studies on DVD we are thrilled to have Joanna Weaver join this wonderful group of teachers in this format. The challenges she offers the ladies as well as the personal insight she has gained in her walk with the Lord are so encouraging and helpful. We absolutely love this study and recommend it to other groups both big and small. The fact that it can also be adapted for a Retreat format is wonderful as well. We couldn't be more pleased!

    I cannot say enough about this seller. I purchased this to use for our spring ladies study and when we met the first session we had issues with showing the DVD. We could hear her speak but her mouth didn't match the words. Then the second session the DVD would play for 7 minutes and stop. I contacted the seller through amazon and I was immediately in touch and received a brand new DVD quickly. The item and the seller are 5 STAR in my book!

    I love this video series. I'm leading a small group with it at my church. It has helped so much!

  • By Granna on November 24, 2016

    Great study, great book. Touches the heart of every woman I know and helps remind us sometimes we get too busy and lose sight of what's important and what last eternally. Highly recommend as a personal read or for a women's small group study.
