"Having a Martha Home the Mary Way"

"Having a Martha Home the Mary Way: 31 days to a clean house and a satisfied soul," by Sarah Mae, is a wonderful book that I highly recommend for all moms out there.  First of all, the title really intrigued me as I grew up hearing the Mary and Martha story in Sunday School .  However, as an adult, and a wife and mother whom works full-time outside of the home plus maintaining the home  it is difficult and can seem overwhelming and impossible to ever feel like I'm caught up; therefore being in a constant Martha mindset.  I sped through this book reading through the text and looking over the questions and activities.  As this book is designed for 31 days, I am going to work through it as it is intended to be done through the month of March.  Each day there is a reading designated for it following by the Mary challenge and the Martha challenge.  Each Mary challenge is designed to help fill our hearts and minds with God's presence and build a stronger relationship with Him in our everyday lives.  The Martha challenges are designed to help maintain a clean and organized home.  I love the layout of this book and how it is so simple and straightforward as also has space to write and answer the questions. The most important thing that I am taking away from this book and hope to implement everyday is really taking time for the Mary moments each day, meaning taking the time to refresh and focus on what really is important instead of focusing on my to-do list.  I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to really diving into this book in March.

  1. What a great concept for a book and for serving. Attending to the details is wonderful as long as our priorities stay straight. Would you please share this with our readers at the Literacy Musing Mondays Linkup? #LMMLinkup http://www.foreverjoyful.net/?p=904
