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 audiobook, 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 the biblical Marys (Mary, mother of Jesus; Mary, sister of Martha; and Mary Magdalene) and others whose experience with God transformed their lives, Joanna shows how you can find what you long for: hope, healing, wholeness, and joy. Having a Mary Spirit will launch you toward lasting personal transformation: soul-deep change that results in a complete makeover – from the inside out. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Weaver spends sixteen delightfully entertaining and spiritually hefty chapters challenging and entreating women to allow God entrance to the heart’s inner places for a “soul-surgery” of sorts. She discusses guarding one’s heart from distractions and cynicism, bringing thoughts under control, honing a fearless, courageous attitude, and learning to adopt a discerning, malleable and servant-minded spirit. Weaver’s insight is keen and far-reaching, patient and practical…Weaver has a way of approaching even the most tried subject matter with a neighborliness that both charms and enthralls.”

    Liz Curtis Higgs, bestselling author of Bad Girls of the Bible

  • “Reading Having a Mary Spirit is like having a cherished friend visit and speak right to my heart.

If you're ready for a transformed spirit, you'll adore this book!”

    Tricia Goyer, author of Generation NeXt Parenting

This personal and life-pondering book will strengthen and soothe the places in your spirit where your everyday life has left you parched. Drink deeply!”

    Robin Jones Gunn, bestselling author

    " I guess this is a good book if you're into spiritual growth, but I'd rather read shorter articles. "

    " We read this for the MOPS steering bible study. Today was our last meeting, and I thouroughly enjoyed the reading, discussion and relationship that developed from this book. I would gladly read it again with another group of Women. It was meaty and uplifting. I was encouraged to pursue Christ after every reading and even more after every study gathering. "

    " I was quite disappointed initially as I thought I had requested her first book and not this one. Once I had gotten over my mistake and dived in this book, I realized that this is what I needed to challenge me in my spiritual walk. Thank you, Joanna Weaver, for being transparent and relatable. I really needed this book. "
