Publisher's Summary

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 best-seller 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.

a bit wordy, not original

This might be a good listen if you are new to books on spiritual life or want to hear an upbeat re-hash of traditional Pauline spirituality (lots on "flesh woman versus...."), but I found it "chatty." Great title, though, and clearly narrated from a pastor's wife's perspective, if you like bubbly narrators. Not original, but lots about "original sin." This is clealy a very good woman, but as for her writing, I found many of her metaphors too drawn out.

I think "Velver Elvis," for example, is a better, (And still bubbly if that's what you want)presentation.

A must read/listen

I read the book and then listened to the audio in the car. Gods word came alive to me through this book, was lovely to listen to the audio version read by the author.
