A new venture: A Martha’s Heart

I have a friend named Holly.  I have met her one time, briefly, in real life.  But we are sisters.  Bound together by the love and grace of Jesus Christ and by the ties of Aggieland and Texas.  Although she does live in Colorado now. 

But I digress.

My friend Holly and her friend Trish had a vision for an online community and it has finally come to fruition.  A Martha’s Heart is based on the story of Mary and Martha from Bethany (see Luke 10:38-42 & John 11:1-44).  Holly wrote all about  it here.

Today, we are introducing the Kitchen where I will be primarily hanging out.  As if that’s any surprise.  And here is a snippet from my first article over there…

I know that sounds very “Nike” but it’s the truth. You’ll never learn until you just get in there and get your proverbial hands dirty.

I hope to see you over at A Martha’s Heart in the coming weeks and months.  We are all very excited about it.
