Two friends, two totally different lenses, and one great big God who loves us, just as we are.”
Welcome to the Martha + Mary Show!
Whether you are made more like Martha or more like Mary—the sisters from Bethany, in Luke 10—or a mix of both, you are welcome here. On this podcast, we discuss various topics, from the silly to the serious, through our different lenses. We’ve discovered that we are better together, and have more fun while getting things done, when we combine our strengths for a common purpose.
So come on in, just as you are.

Katie Reid is made like Martha. Checking items off her to-do list gives her life. She’d rather work and then relax. Katie enjoys musicals and cut-to-the-chase conversation over iced tea.
Katie is the author of Made Like Martha: Good News for the Woman Who Gets Things Done. She encourages others to walk out the wisdom found in God’s Word, through her articles, songs, and messages. She is a dynamic speaker, who inspires and exhorts others to grow closer to the Lord and take the next steps in walking out their God-given purpose. Katie and her pastor-husband, Adam, have five (loud and wonderful) kids and live on four acres in Central Michigan.
Lee Nienhuis is made like Mary. She likes reading good books, hanging out with her people, and having a whole lot of fun. Lee likes to relax, and then work—if she has to. She loves deep conversation over steaming cups of coffee and laughing till her sides ache.
Lee is the author of Brave Moms, Brave Kids: A Battle Plan or Raising Heroes. She is a passionate Bible teacher whose love for the Lord and the Word is contagious. She is an area coordinator for Moms in Prayer International and a sought-after speaker who shares a dynamic vision for the next generation of Christ followers. Lee and her farmer-husband, Mike, have four kids and live on four acres of grass in West Michigan.
