I’ve been dreaming of the perfect family for years. My older sister, Martha, has been training me to take care of my own household, and now I’m old enough to marry. But the men who offer proposals of marriage do not measure up to my fantasy. Nothing does.

Mary of Bethany's store brought to life in @sharonleehughson 's An Adoring Spirit

5 things from An Adoring Spirit
1)Lazurus's resurrection from Mary's perspective
2)Meeting Jesus of Nazareth. Could he be the promised Messiah?
3) A girl who weaves simple joy and worship into every day life.
4) A sacrifice to honor the Savior
5)Time slowed. I pressed my lips together, afraid to breathe like the wind itself seemed reluctant to blow. Everyone and everything waited for Yeshua's command to be obeyed.

I loved the absolute certainty of Martha, Mary and Lazarus that Jesus was able to come back from the dead after He was crucified and buried. After all, He brought Lazarus back to life after four days in the tomb. The Bible characters become "real" in this third book of the series, so we can understand their faults as well as their faith.
I received a copy of this book from the author, but my review is voluntary and I highly recommend An Adoring Spirit!
