Based on the woman who anointed Jesus’ feet with expensive perfume in Mark 14, SDWSC provides overwhelmed, yet service-seeking, significance-starved readers a realistic response to the seemingly unmeetable needs around us.

    She Did What She Could -- and you should too!

    How often have you watched the news and been saddened by the pain and suffering you see? Have you ever wished you could make a real difference in the world, but the task just seems too overwhelming? What can YOU do? After all, you are just one woman-what can one woman really accomplish? You want to serve God, but where should you start?

    In her book She Did What She Could: Five words of Jesus that will change your life, Elisa Morgan offers a simple, and biblical, plan for women like you who want to make a difference in this world for the cause of Christ. The book's inspiration comes from Mark 14:3-9 which tells the story of Mary, sister of Martha and Lazarus, as she takes an invaluable bottle of perfumed oil and lovingly anoints the head of Jesus, effectively preparing his body for burial. The disciples in the room, led by Judas, berate Mary for what they see as a wasteful act. Kindly, Jesus comes to her defense saying, in part, "Leave her alone. Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me...She did what she could...I tell you the truth, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her."

    She did what she could. In those words, Elisa Morgan shows how women of today can find their own mission, their own service to the Lord. Ms. Morgan analyzes each of these words spoken by Jesus-SHE: the amazing fact that Mary was a girl, God chose a girl. DID: a word of action. WHAT: the action Mary chose was significant. She continues to break down the phrase word-by-word while weaving in stories from the lives of people today. Then, audaciously, Elisa Morgan says, "She did what she could. What if I did what I could? And you did what you could? So that we did what we could? Not necessarily in the Congo or in Serbia, but right here, right now, wherever God has planted each of us-all of us?" The questions and ensuing analysis have life- and world-changing implications! What better way to love your community than for women to do what we could right here, right now, in our own backyard?

    Uplifting easy read

    This book thoughtfully explores the bible story of Mary (of Mary & Martha) and inspires you to "do what you can". It is an easy and quick book to read.
