Overview

Having a Mary Spirit: Allowing God to Change Us from the Inside Out by Joanna Weaver

“Lord, Whatever It Takes, Make Me Like You!”

You long to serve God with grace and strength, to reflect Christ in every word and action. Yet you find yourself continually struggling to bring that vision to life in your daily walk.

At our very core, every one of us is a “twisted sister” within whom the flesh and spirit battle constantly for control. We are afflicted with spiritual schizophrenia, the disconnect between our “good girl” desire to put Jesus first and our “bad girl” realities that crowd our thoughts and push him out of the way.

In this life-changing book, Joanna Weaver, author of the perennial bestseller, Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World, directs your gaze past your own shortcomings to the God who stands ready, willing, and able to make a new woman out of you. She equips you with biblical insights and practical tools to partner with Christ, inviting him into the hidden places of your soul and giving him full permission to redeem and renovate.

Drawing on the stories of biblical Marys and others whose experience with God transformed their lives, Joanna shows how you can find the hope, healing, wholeness, and joy your heart longs for. Having a Mary Spirit will launch you toward lasting personal transformation–soul-deep change that results in a complete makeover, from the inside out.

**Includes a 12-week Bible study for both individual reflection and group discussion**

I have read this book twice now and have loaned it out and recommended it to many different ladies in my church. I love Joanna's writing style and how she digs in deep with scripture, bringing out solid Truth and encouragement to live a life of loving Jesus better. This is a great practical book with very applicable applications in moving forward in our journey with Jesus. I highly recommend this book!

I tend to be a "Martha", always trying to make it through a to-do list and getting stressed that others don't find it as important as me. This book was so good for me! I need to be reminded what is really important and check my attitude, my priorities and my focus. Thank you Joanna, once again. What a great book!

Eye opener. Makes you take a closer look at your own personal spiritual walk of faith. Then you will want to do whatever it takes to be more like Jesus.

Ms. Weaver's first book was deeply helpful to me as a typically anxious woman. However, this book has gone right to the very depths of my soul, exposing my heart in new ways. I have been a Christian for many years and it is so refreshing to be laid bare by the word of God and Ms.Weaver's insightful application of it. I think this is a must read for any woman who truly wants to allow God to change her in radical ways.

This is the first book I've read by Joanna Weaver. In fact, I had never heard of her but the title caught my attention because I am a woman with a Martha spirit. I really like Joanna as an author. She is candid, self deprecating and she doesn't sugar coat. Joanna gets to the nitty-gritty of who we really are on the inside. She talks about 'flesh woman', pride and all the areas that we, as women get entangled. This book is honest, funny and very useful, yet not preachy. I recommend 'Having a Mary Spirit'for anyone wanting to root-out unwanted tendencies and have a closer walk with God.
