We ARE Mary & Martha
Mary & Martha are our founders. Over 2,000 years ago they began serving in their home. They learned through their experiences that having people in your home isn’t about the act of entertaining, but it is the method by which we invite Guests into our homes to Love On Them. (In fact, the greatest Guest felt so welcomed in their home that He was entertained there many times.) Fast-forward two thousand years. We picked up on their story. We studied their story. We discovered the simple secret to their lives—Love God & Love Others. And we’ve seen our own homes transformed by their simple lessons. Meaningful Entertaining…Made Simple. This is where you enter the story. We are inviting you to join us. See your home transformed. Let us show you how easy it can be. We have created products and tips to give you the confidence that you can have people in your home without it being perfect, complex or routine; so you can focus on the main thing—the guests that enter into your homes. This is your invitation to join us. Come be a part of the story. See your own home transformed by Meaningful Entertaining…Made Simple.

Meaningful Entertaining
We chose each word for a reason. These four words hold everything we have learned from Mary & Martha about loving on people in our homes. So we pass this philosophy on to you and encourage you in your new journey.

Meaningful
The definition of meaningful is to have purpose. We think entertaining should be on purpose. Our products have a purpose—to help you love on people in your home. We give you what you need to gather people around the table, and give you simple ways to make it meaningful.

Entertaining
This word means two things—it means to amuse people, but it also means to think about something—like entertaining an idea. At Mary & Martha we like to use both meanings. For us, entertaining is fun and entertaining is thoughtful. (That’s what it means to love on people—a fun and thoughtful experience for others.)

Made Simple

Made
No, we don’t mean the picture-perfect magazine idea of “made.” We simply mean something with a personal touch. It can be homemade brownies (and yes we count adding an egg to a mixture as homemade), a personal note in a chair or adding a little touch to one of our products as a centerpiece. All these add up to something you feel good about and show your guests you care.

Simple
The definition of simple is “not complicated” (how simple is that!) The stigma that entertaining is not simple is the biggest deterrent of using our homes to love on others. We believe entertaining should be simple, so we provide you products and tips to help you make it simple. After all, your guests are the point of entertaining, not perfect homes. When we can believe that…entertaining can be simple.

Around Her Table
We live in a fast-paced, eat-on-the-run and connect-with each-other online world. Even while we are often in touch with people we love through our phones and computers, we sense a disconnect from the heart and soul of our friends and family. We long for something deeper and more meaningful than a status update or text message—something we can find in a face to face connection around our table.
When we open our homes to friends and family and sit across from them over a meal at our table, something spiritual and profoundly meaningful happens. Life slows down.
MELISSA MICHAELS is the creator and writer of one of the most popular decorating blogs on the internet, The Inspired Room (theinspiredroom.net) and on the writing team at (in)courage (incourage.me). Melissa loves to inspire women to love the home they have by sharing simple ideas and inspiration for decorating, homemaking and living a more beautiful and meaningful life. She is also a church planter's wife at Voyage in Washington and a mom to three awesome kids (and mom to two of the cutest pups you will ever see!).

We engage more of our senses, heightening our sense of enjoyment and connection with those around us. Our shared experience is embedded more deeply into our memory. The delicious aroma of the meal, the sound of the dishes being passed around, the warmth of the ambience and cheerful faces of friends gathered around our table create the moments we long for and cherish the most in life.

As we slow down together around a table, we listen more intently, hearts and stories are shared rather than broadcasted in an online status, we see real emotion on a face and offer real arms to hug in place of cartoon emoticons and ask more meaningful questions without scrolling down a page for more bitesized nuggets of carefully crafted information. I love to set a beautiful table for others to enjoy. I think creating a peaceful and pretty ambience and experience in my home for guests is part of my God-given love language. It’s a gift I really enjoy giving to others. I’m not the best cook and never know what to wear to a party, but I hope my guests can relax and enjoy their time around our table in spite of my clothing indecision and preference for taco and dessert bars over fancy dinners. I want to create a special time for others and bless them in the best way I know how. I love creating the setting for real community to take place. We don’t have to be an incredible homemaker or plan a complicated menu in order to open our doors and impact those around us. Our style should be a simple and natural reflection of who we really are so we are connecting from a place of authenticity. We can relax and be ourselves! We don’t need to impress with skills or talents we don’t have, we just need to love on those around us by offering our time and attention in whatever way we are most comfortable. It is the personal experience we share in those moments, the meaningful touch we offer, and the connection we form that makes gathering around the table so powerful and meaningful. So what are we waiting for? Let’s open the doors and invite friends in!

Melissa
The Beautiful Basics
One of the first things to put out of your mind when inviting friends and family over for any meal is the idea that everything has to be perfect. Our homes are lived in and grace-soaked. The meaningful part of any get together is time spent asking and listening, shouldering cares and laughing out loud…hearing about ball games, remodeling woes and how we’re walking by faith while running through life. We’re in this together and we need to be together to make it! Straighten up, don’t clean up. I learned a long time ago that no one is looking at your floor when they come through your door. Your smiling face earns a whole lot of grace—be happy to see your guests and know that a little disarray makes you human… and them less intimidated about having you over for dinner the next time! You set the tone in your home. If you’re comfortable and relaxed, your guests will feel the same. Try to put all your energy into letting everyone know they’re genuinely welcomed and loved. They’ll go away with a satisfied stomach and a soothed soul. Welcome to “living in the “&”!

easy does it!

HERE’S HOW WE CREATED THE TACO SOUP & FRIENDS NIGHT WITH THE GRACE & GRATITUDE COLLECTION IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES!

GET READY! (30 MINUTES BEFORE GUESTS ARRIVE)
Mary and Martha’s Taco Soup recipe is simple and delicious. Download it from your Consultant’s website!

Go to the grocery store and pick up the ingredients.
Invite one of your guests to arrive 30 minutes early to help you with preparation. It makes it easier on you and gives you a chance to spend some fun time together before everyone else arrives.

Prepare the Taco Soup. Your house will smell wonderful!
maryandmartha.com |

11

GET SET! (5 MINUTES BEFORE GUESTS ARRIVE)
Use the Copper Luster Pillar to hold silverware wrapped in napkins, tied with a bit of raffia for a fun touch.

Set the Grace and Gratitude pieces on your table.
Pour the Taco Soup into the Casserole Dish and place the lid on it to keep it warm.

If you have asked guests to bring the garnishes, pour them into the Small Pedestal Bowls (doesn’t that look gorgeous!).

LOVE ON PEOPLE! (THEY’RE HERE! SHOW THEM HOW SPECIAL THEY ARE!)
For the next couple of hours, don’t worry about dirty dishes, just gather around the table and enjoy your time together.
The scripture and inspirational words on the pieces in the Grace & Gratitude Collection will bring encouragement to your guests, giving their hearts something special to take away.

After dinner, brew a pot of Honduran Gold coffee. Pour the coffee into the Mugs, place them on the Praise Tray and serve! There’s something about the warmth and aroma of coffee that lets us settle in, be ourselves, and truly enjoy each other’s company.

Let’s Have Coffee!
to talk, to laugh, to listen, to slow down

Coffee gives us a reason to gather,

and share life... Coffee starts our days. It stirs our conversation. It moves
us, powering our mornings and late nights with a little extra boost to put on the finishing touches. It forms the perfect balance between what needs to be done and what we truly need—each other. For the way it moves us through the day and the way it moves us closer together, coffee is the perfect Mary & Martha product. We cannot imagine a day without it!

introducing mary & martha blend coffees
Why buy Mary & Martha coffee?
FRESHNESS—your coffee is roasted within days of your order and shipped directly to you within a week. (Compared to coffee in retail stores with a shelf life of up to twelve months.) CONVENIENCE—knowing you can purchase premium, fresh-roasted coffee AND have it delivered to your door within a week, why purchase from the store again? IMPACT—we are passionate about sourcing coffee in a way that creates partnerships and opportunities to make a difference in the local communities where it is grown.

Try it today!

Our coffee has a story. 
Our current selection of coffee grows in a remote, mountainous region of Honduras—the Opalaca mountain range. The region produced generations of coffee farmers who were proud of the crops they raised, but they had a big problem. They did not make enough money from their coffee to last from one harvest to the next. Enter a missionary family from the US. Nearly twenty years ago, they moved to Honduras and connected with these farmers. They worked tirelessly to improve both the farming practices and the business practices of these farmers. As a result of this work, the farmers now make 500% more for their harvests, which they invest in building homes and youth programs plus other investments in their local community

Unexpected Entertaining
y mother-in-law taught me invaluable lessons by the way she opened her home to others. I was amazed at the way she could tell someone they were always welcome and sincerely mean it. Never frazzled or caught off guard, she truly embraced drop-in visits from friends and family. Beyond the genuine warmth of her character, she seemed blissfully prepared to make you feel comfortable in her home no matter the time or timeliness of your visit.
BONNIE JENSEN is a writer who fuels her creative spirit by making her surroundings beautiful—and finds joy in helping others do the same. From decorating to baking to entertaining given to ‘everyday luxury,’ she believes in putting special into the simple things… and love into everything.

Invaluable Lessons...
Heartwarming Hug:
SHE PUT HER SOUL INTO THE WELCOME.

Big smile. Warm hug. You matter. Let this be your haven for a little while. Sit down…relax…breathe…tell me what’s going on in your life. Love in beautiful actions—real and raw and unstaged.

Pantry Prepared:
SHE WAS A MASTER OF THE 5-MINUTE FEAST.

She kept at least two types of cheese on hand; some combination of crackers/ pretzels/chips or fruit to go with it; and tea, coffee, or water with cucumber or lemon. Within a very short time of your arrival, she put out a delightful tray of goodies that would make anyone feel entirely special.

Serving Savvy:
SHE DELIGHTED IN THE PRESENTATION.

Bowl beauty: Our Large Footed Server is so versatile. It can dress up pretzels and chips and hold a pasta salad with amazing grace. I’ve sent it out the door with guests filled to the brim with spaghetti and meatballs—and told them to keep the bowl as a housewarming gift for their new home.

Cast your care: The single most important preparation for inviting others into your home is to relax and know that it’s being with… serving…loving on that matters. For a few hours out of our day, our week, we put everything aside to set everything right. We’re in this together, this thing called life, and this is what means something, this thing called connection.

Take a few minutes for you: I believe it’s important to settle in for a few minutes and enjoy your home before you share it. Appreciate how it makes you feel to be there…pour yourself a cup of tea or coffee…savor the grace and what God will do.

Set your spirit right: A quick prayer to put all in place and perspective. Our attitude: joy. Our heart: peaceful. Our desire: love on others.

Around Your Christmas Table

At the table....
A

e are accepted and loved with open arms...we have a place away from the world and in the hearts of those around us...we can relax, settle in, and thank God for the things that matter most. Traditions create memories that give us a sense of belonging. They plant our souls in meaningful soil that grows richer through years of keeping. We gather around the table because we need these times to sit close, talk long, and laugh together. We find a haven from the hardness of life.. and a soft landing for every care.

B
Add a fun message to your buffet with the Chalkboard Tray. Use the Copper Lustre Pillar to keep small gift-wrapped boxes as gifts for your Guests. A small token or note wrapped with raffia is a simple and lovely finishing touch!

Made for you...
Use simple pieces of layered cardstock to create a placecard for each guest. The hand-written, personalized touch is like a small gift for each Guest. This is also a fun way for younger children to be involved in the preparation.

A Step Back in Time...
There’s something about looking back that gives our hearts a little peace in the present. Our Vintage Announcement Board is a uniquely beautiful way to draw our spirits to the timelessness of an old hymn while retaining the modern sensibility to fit any style of home. The design was inspired by an old church attendance board, reflecting simple, sweet days of worship. Quiet your heart. Welcome your guests. Encourage your kids. Remember why you believe in the God who moved the hands that penned the hymns...and brings the love into your home. Includes two sets of double-sided tiles with song lines; The Doxology, The Revelation Song, Blessed Be the Name, In Christ Alone. The extra set of Chalkboard Tiles is a great way to personalize a family message, verse, or evening's menu!

We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

T

here’s no other way to say it: Christmas exudes love. From the reason we celebrate, to the giving, to the traditions carried out, shared, and passed on. Our world holds its breath for a moment in time to stand in awe of the divine. It’s so simple...love is being together...for popcorn stringing & carol singing; cookie baking & homemade gift making; for hanging lights & cozy nights.

Our new Advent Puzzle Tree is a wonderful way to gather your family and share in new ways to express His love. Each day of December has its own ornament to hang. One side has a Scripture verse and the other side has an activity to mark the day. Whether you are taking cookies to your neighbor, making snowflakes, or writing fun notes together—these activities will shine a new focus on the true gift of Christmas.

Together,

IN JESUS’ NAME, WE CAN BREAK THE CYCLE OF POVERTY.

FINALLY, ALL OF YOU, BE LIKE-MINDED, BE SYMPATHETIC, LOVE ONE ANOTHER, BE COMPASSIONATE AND HUMBLE.
I PETER 3:8 NIV

Mary & Martha Has Partnered
with Compassion International in the Dominican Republic! Join us in our effort to make sure that every child celebrates their fifth birthday! The Child Survival Program (CSP) is designed to rescue, nurture and teach young children. This early childhood intervention program began in 2003 to offer a holistic approach to expectant mothers, caregivers and young, vulnerable children—helping save lives and teaching healthy development. For sixty years, Compassion’s mission has been to act as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty to enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.

I am so completely impressed and awed at Compassion’s work. What an honor to be able to see it firsthand! I am blessed to be able to be a part of this Christ-centered mission, and you will be too! Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” MARK 19:14

THROUGH THE Child Survival Program,
our goal is to create Project Centers around the world, beginning with CSP 25 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Partnering with local churches, this program helps empower mothers to give their children a fighting chance for healthy development with the supplies and training provided through your donations.

Join us—Be COMPASSIONATE!

Medical and nutritional assistance Nutritious food and supplements Ongoing health care Parental education and social support Literacy and economic training to help mothers provide for their families The loving support of a local church For only $20 A MONTH, you will help support a Project Center that can care for up to 40 mother/child units each year. The CSP is the first phase of Compassion’s holistic Child Development Model.

One word keeps coming to my mind when I think of this amazing trip—HOPE (esperanza) We can give others HOPE through Compassion International. Hope comes from learning—learning inspires hope. I was so inspired by the Dominican people! HOPE–LOVE–INSPIRATION– COMPASSION Join us—Be COMPASSIONATE!

“The people we met were truly beautiful…bright eyes and happy faces. The kids were quick to play and give hugs. The mommas were quick to let us cuddle their babies. The pastors and workers were excited about their programs. Such a blessing to see first hand the impact Jesus is having on these families through Compassion.” Join us—Be COMPASSIONATE!

The smell of bread. The sound of laughter.

A knock at the door.

Cleaning up. Cutting up. Catching up. Coffee and Cookies. Friends. Family. Neighbors. Welcoming. Saying hello. Feeling at home. A shoulder to cry on. An ear to listen. A good joke well told. Making messes in the kitchen and cleaning up later. Game night and garden parties. These are the moments that make our homes feel like home. They are the everyday opportunities to demonstrate love. These are our moments.
