Made Like Martha

Good News for the Woman Who Gets Things Done
  • By Katie Reid
$11.99
($15.99)
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.

“What a beautiful invitation to leave the try-hard life behind and just belong to Jesus! This Martha is grateful.”
—Joanna Weaver, author of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World

Made Like Martha is the gospel for go-getters. Within these pages, Reid silences the voices that push, ‘Do more. Be more. Achieve more.’ Those persistent taunts are covered by the glorious blanket of God’s lavish grace and unconditional love. Allow yourself to be wrapped in the reminder that you are enough because He is enough. If you’ve ever been tempted to think that your worth is affected by your work, this book is for you. Made Like Martha is an open invitation to rest secure in your identity as a beloved daughter of God because of what Christ has already done.”
Kate Motaung, author of A Place to Land: A Story of Longing and Belonging

“‘Hi, my name is Jennifer, and I’m made like Martha.’ At last I can say those words with my chin held high, knowing Jesus loves me as much as He loves all the Marys in the world. This book was just what my Martha-heart needed. I felt affirmed in who I am and learned how to find peace and rest in the midst of my busy life.”
—Jennifer Dukes Lee, author of The Happiness Dare and Love Idol

“Are you a doer—one who loves to check things off her daily to-accomplish list? Are your desire to be productive and your confident, capable ways often subtly (or even overtly) slammed by others, making you feel less spiritual than your laid-back, easygoing friends? Made Like Martha will infuse your life with a fresh perspective as you learn to embrace your God-given personality and also discover how—and when—to rest and retreat.”
Karen Ehman, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker, New York Times best-selling aut
hor of Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing at All, wife, and mother of three
