Martha, A book review

Martha: a Novel by Diana Wallis Taylor

Martha's life is taking care of her family.  Her father Ephraim, brother Lazarus, and sister Mary are her life.  She has dreams of being married, but it seems that no one will have her, so she is content to just take care of her family.

This book is a fictional novel based on Biblical Characters.  Please keep that in mind when you consider reading it.  I have read many Biblical based novels in the pasted and have found that some are closely related to scripture to make you either upset with the authors writing or you are thrilled with it.

The story of Martha in the Bible is one of a woman so involved with serving her family. In this book it is the same thing, Martha  has taken over the household duties after her mother passes away.    You will find similarities to the Bible  as you read.  You will read how Martha and her family meet  Jesus.  You will read about the dangers of being a follower of Christ.    This novel was not so unrealistic that you can't picture what life was like for her and her family.  This is a compelling story of Martha.  

On the back cover of the book, it states " Follow Martha as she navigates the complicated worlds of family, faith, and love.... and you'll never read her story the same way again."  This might be one of the truest statements I've read...
I know that I will never read it the same way as I had before.
You never know what God has planned for your life, just as Martha....

This book is available at your local bookstore! Check it out

Scripture of the Month

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
