Having a Martha Home the Mary Way By Sarah Mae

I have loved Sarah Mae since I read her first blog! I am thrilled she is publishing books! Keeping an orderly and clean house is a challenge for most women. (Me included!) Sarah Mae gets it!! She is one of us! She doesn’t shame you, guilt you or push you into improving as homemaker but gently guides you. I appreciate her transparency in sharing her story.
The Bible instructs us to do everything “heartily as unto the Lord.” However there are things we don’t even think about doing as if we were doing them for Him. One of those is housework. Most of the times I know I am in the mode of just get it done! As women we can be like Martha and get so wrapped up in our “to do list” that we forget to make time for the Lord and include Him as Mary did. I have often thought about the story of Mary and Martha. I understood putting God first, but there are things that have to be done, so where is the balance? This book helps define that very question. Each chapter contains two challenges. “Martha Challenges’ breaks your home care into manageable realistic steps. “Mary Challenges” are Bible readings with questions to answer to prepare you spiritually as you work. One of the most beautiful homemaking books I have read. It helps me put God not only in my home but in my work to maintain it.
I received this book free from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I have stated are my own.
