How the Having a Mary Heart DVD Study works
While the Bible is always the core of Joanna’s studies, the books are meant to provide the structure. For this study, each participant will need:
- Book, Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World: Finding Intimacy with God in the Busyness of Life
- Study Guide, Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World: the Study Guide
Each week, the DVD teaching session and study guide homework enhances (rather than repeats) the corresponding reading assignment in the book.
The Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World DVD Study Pack includes:
- Ten-week study features 18- to 22-minute video teaching sessions taught by Joanna. (See other formats below.)
- Nine “Word Time” short videos featuring practical tools for deeper study of scripture. (view sample.)
- A copy of the participant Study Guide designed to help members engage with Scripture and each other in meaningful ways. (Can be purchased separately. See sample.)
- Downloadable Leader Guide with outlines and suggestions for leading weekly meetings.
- An optional Retreat Guide that turns DVD sessions into a special weekend event filled with engaging features and fun activities. Participant UPDATED Retreat Journal available as well.
- Optional weekly memory verses and other downloadables. (See “Resources“.)
- Promotional material for both the study and retreat. (See “Resources“.)
