Wow! Thank you to everyone who has already purchased a copy of my book, Made Like Martha: Good News for the Woman Who Gets Things Done!
On launch day (July 10th) it hit #1 New Release in four of its categories: Christian Bible Study Guides, Women’s Christian Living, Christian Education, and Christian Women’s Issues! We stand amazed at what God has done, is doing, and will do with this message of grace and freedom.
Here’s what readers are saying:
Made Like Martha is rich in faith, biblical stories and truths, relatable modern-day stories, action steps, and thought-provoking questions. Katie is genuine, honest, and soul-baring as she walks you through her story. She writes with passion, “I get you”, and a faith-filled spirit. Katie breaks down the walls of feeling like being “Martha” is somehow bad. She shares, “But God says, I have designed both Mary’s and Martha’s and I love them both.”
While the book includes many insights from the author herself, she is mindful of the many different types of Martha’s she may have in her audience. She shares stories from friends, family, colleagues, and mentors to add depth and diversity to the narrative. At the end of every chapter, Reid graciously shared a space for these women to give their first-hand accounts of being a get-it-done type of gal.
This book would make for a great study with a few friends. The author included a Bible study/discussion questions to go with each chapter at the end of the book.” -J. Mullen
Mobile Book Club for Made Like Martha
Now that dear Martha is out in the world, we thought it’d be fun to go through the book together. We’ll be reading one chapter a week from Tuesday, July 24th – Tuesday September 25th, and I’ve invited some fabulous friends to host each week of the book club. We’ll supply everything but the treats and drinks.
Each Tuesday, I’ll be introducing the host and sharing some of her reflections on that week’s theme, right here on my blog. I’ll then link over to her site for you to read her full post. She’ll pose a question for us to discuss in the comments on her blog. Then almost every week, the host and I will do a Facebook Live together (on Wednesdays) in the Made Like Martha Sisterhood (Facebook Group).* We’ll interact with you during the live chat, and you can ask questions and share your insights over there too. There may even be a few surprises!

I had so much fun reading the audiobook for Made Like Martha! My midwestern accent is strong as ever- enjoy! I may have thrown a few other accents in too. Ha!
It’s been said the Stolen Jesus and Made Like Martha are books to be read together. It’s no wonder, because Jami and I discovered the grace message around the same time, and she’s one of my dearest friends too. Here’s my official endorsement for Stolen Jesus:
Thank God that Jesus is not who I made Him out to be in high school—a roller coaster Deity that was hormonal and enjoyed grounding me if I crossed the line. Stolen Jesus is delightful freedom to all those who have ever been burned by fakes, phonies, or counterfeits of the True Savior. Come away from the crazy by entering Jami’s crazy as you snort with laughter, cry with relief, and uncover Real Jesus in all His glory.
Kate is a dear friend of mine. She recently hosted me over on her Five Minute Friday site. Here is my endorsement for Kate’s stunning memoir:
An honest, beautifully-written book that maps out a story of longing for home in the tailwinds of uncertainty and loss. More than the account of one woman’s journey, this is for all of us who ache for solid ground in between what if and now what. From the tulip-lined streets of Holland, Michigan, to the vibrant coastline of Cape Town, South Africa, you will land closer to the hope of your eternal home as you unpack Motaung‘s moving memoir.
Laura Dingman is the real deal. She is uber-talented yet humble and authentic. Here’s my glowing endorsement for her latest Bible study:
In uncertain times, it is imperative to be grounded in timeless truths, convinced of the unchanging nature of the one true God. This I Know is an anchor of hope to calm your fears and bolster your faith. Move from head knowledge to heart knowledge as you interact with this captivating and approachable study.
One of my favorite parenting books to date—packed with powerful revelations for dealing with parent-anger. Here is my endorsement:
Thank you Amber and Wendy for thoughtfully and honestly addressing numerous issues that set us off, and then pointing us to a better way through God’s Word. Bringing these triggers to light empowers us to move forward as kinder, wiser, and better-equipped moms.
Team Martha Linkup
Behind the successful launch of this book, is a small (or not so small) army of people who helped champion its message. You can read the acknowledgements for those that are on that list. But I wanted to take a moment to thank our outstanding book launch manager, Kaitlyn Bouchillon, and all the members of Team Martha (a.k.a. the book launch team) who have gone above and beyond, sharing this message of grace and freedom. Linkup your encouragement below!
