About this item

An invitation for overachievers to discover what it means to rest as God's daughters without compromising their God-given design as doers.Though she didn't sit at Jesus's feet like her sister Mary, biblical Martha was loved just as she was--and you are too. This practical resource invites modern-day Marthas to sit down spiritually as they exchange try-hard striving for hope-filled freedom without abandoning their doer's heart in the process. Doers need to be affirmed in their innate design to do rather than sit, yet also be reminded that they don't have to overdo it in order to be worthy. This book is not an exhortation to add or subtract things off your to-do list, but it is an invitation to embrace the "good" of the Good News. Here is an offer to step into your position as a daughter of God and to enjoy life as a doer.

This book was such an encouragement to me, as I sometimes can overdo it with doing (or at least attempting to do) everything and yet feel guilty for not doing enough. Katie speaks in love while she explains how we are not supposed to change to instead be "Mary" - we were created to be this way. But,...see moreof the reviewer's review

First and foremost, this book is an invitation not to stop striving, but to do it for the right reasons. Katie has written an honest, gut-check type book that not only makes you examine your heart for the work you do, but for the reasons you might be trying too hard. How can we each both be a Mary a...see moreof the reviewer's review

Reading this book has given me a new appreciation for the story of the two sisters mentioned in Luke 10. Martha was the perfect hostess who wanted everything to be just right for Jesus's visit and she was unhappy that her sister Mary wasn't helping. Mary was just sitting around enjoying the company ...see moreof the reviewer's review

Katie’s vulnerability and honesty spoke to my weary Martha soul. All my striving, trying to be more, and not e...see moreof the reviewer's review
