We women tend to have lots of “Martha time” as we scurry about being housewives and mothers. The unmarried among us are equally busy as school teachers, caregivers, or earning a living in other ways.
Yet what good is all our “Martha time” unless we have our “Mary times” too? We need to pause at the feet of Jesus to receive refreshment like the morning dew.
Here’s a book for our “Mary times.” The stories portray women serving in their God-given roles. The main points of the inspirational parts are drawn from the writings and sermons of men.
Too many Christians today aren’t living a ‘more abundant’ life. What are we missing? We’re not changing our stinkin’ thinkin’, that’s what! Habitually defeated, we keep hanging on to an ineffective mindset overpowered by the corrupt environment surrounding us.
Romans 12:2 outlines a wonderful way to victory, a divine transformation that happens from the inside out...taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. And that’s what Dynamic Living is all about, bringing you insights and scriptures to start you on your way to the heights of a glorious, victorious life of abundance.

This is my story of healing and coming out from under the grip of fear. At the age of 6 my family moved to Nepal where we lived for 3 years as missionaries with Wycliffe. During that time, I had an experience at the airport in Beirut where I was separated from my parents and this caused anxiety and fear to take root in my life.
After our return to the states, I was diagnosed with having a reading and comprehension problem. Because of this, I suffered tremendous teasing from fellow classmates during my elementary years. This brought insecurities, feelings of failure and deep embarrassment. At the end of my eighth grade year, my family and I relocated to a different part of the state and I had a new beginning, although I kept my reading problem a secret. It wasn’t long, though, before my insecurities and failures began to surface.
This story is about choosing to be an overcomer instead of remaining a victim of circumstances. It is about believing what my Father spoke instead of listening to fear. It is about my journey to freedom.

You will have to fasten your seatbelt as you read her amazing experience, as the Holy Spirit unlocked this truth to her. Be prepared to have your perspective challenged as you hear her experiences of being a missionary with her husband, Maurice (a missionary pilot), and the challenge and sacrifice of living in parts of the world you may have never heard of. You will feel your heart being tugged with compassion and an appreciation of the love God has for the entire world, and how the Lord led her into counseling women who were bound by unforgiveness, which caused them to have a hard time fathoming that God loved them personally.
