At the Feet of Jesus by Joanna Weaver

About At the Feet of Jesus:
You were made for more than serving God; you were made to know Him.

Intimacy with God-to know Him and be known by Him. It is what our hearts desperately need, but somehow life conspires to keep us busy and distracted.

For anyone who struggles when it comes to daily devotions, At the Feet of Jesus extends an irresistible invitation to set aside your duties and find the amazing peace and incredible joy that come from time alone with Him. Drawn from Joanna Weaver's beloved Bethany trilogy, each reading in this 365-day devotional includes a Bible reading passage and reflection question. All-new material and "Going Deeper" sidebars are also woven throughout.

Discover for yourself the riches that come from spending a portion of each day alone with God. At the feet of Jesus—where true life begins!

Includes a unique One-Year Bible Reading Guide.

Margie's Comments: I have read (and facilitated Bible studies of) all of Joanna Weaver's books, starting with Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World. Isn't that a great title? So when I heard that Joanna's newest release was a devotional book, I wanted to read and review it.

I've already added At the Feet of Jesus: Daily Devotions to Nurture a Mary Heart to my devotion time each morning. With the readings coming directly from her books about Martha, Mary, and Lazarus, I'm challenged daily with the Scripture readings, principles, and reflection questions that keep drawing me back to developing that Mary heart Jesus told Martha she needed. Reminders I need as a "recovering" Martha. Many of the sidebars from the books that challenge the reader to dig deeper into their relationship with Jesus are included in this book.

As an added bonus, I went to her website where Joanna has a year-long read through the Bible plan that you can tailor to your schedule. It can start at any time, and it includes reflection days during the month and at the end of each month to catch up and/or review what you have read previously. I downloaded one for me, and I'm enjoying another journey through the Bible.

Even if you haven't read her other books, this book will be an excellent tool to deepen your devotional time with the Lord.
