Do you feel like you’re made more like Martha than Mary, meaning you just can’t sit down until everything is done . . . and everything is never done?
Maybe you’re more of a Mary personality, but leaning into God’s love still doesn’t come naturally to you.
Well, whether you’re a Mary or a Martha, this episode is for you because it really comes down to leaning into Jesus and His love.
On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, I’m joined by friend and fellow “Martha,” Katie M. Reid. She is a pastor’s wife and mom to five children (ages two to fourteen). She is a homeschooling mom, singer, bible study facilitator, and author of Made Like Martha: Good News for the Woman Who Gets Things Done. She is a fan of musicals and cut-to-the-chase conversation over tea. Katie encourages others to find grace in the unraveling at katiemreid.com.
Through our time together chatting about everything from birth order to home-keeping, Katie helps Marthas and Marys alike to see how love into the solution of becoming a woman who knows how to rest.
