Can Martha Have a Mary Christmas: Untangling Expectations and Truly Experiencing Jesus
December could be called the “the most Martha time of year.” In this stressful season, women are tempted to lose their cool like Martha in the Bible. She became upset over all she had to do while her sister Mary was able to have time with Jesus. Brenda, a self-proclaimed Martha, sometimes found herself in the same dilemma. She became entangled in the stress of preparing for Christmas when what she really wanted was to experience Jesus. In this book of 25 reflections, she shares what she’s learned about how to have a more spiritually satisfying Christmas, one she calls a “MARY” Christmas.

    Hi Brenda,

    I just finished reading your book “Can Martha Have a Mary Christmas?” I have been working at this for years and appreciate the encouragement and new ideas.

    One thing I have done the past 15 years is to have a short “program” during our annual Christmas party. I have a captive audience 🙂 so we sit down, sing some carols, read scripture, and share something that hopefully causes us to stop for a few moments and think about what Christmas is all about. I’m hoping to incorporate ideas from your book in next years program.

    Thank you for sharing your heart with us.
