Our Foundation of Love Over All

The very foundation of Mary & Martha is found in our mission statement, “Women Building Women Up in Faith & Business."

It takes both, one-hundred percent faith and one-hundred percent business working in perfect harmony together for Mary & Martha to fulfill our mission and vision for this time in history. This is the very DNA of Mary & Martha. 

Our president, James Barnett, sums it up this way:

Our motivation is ministry
Our method is business
Our message is Jesus

Our vision is to bring eternal hope and encouragement to every home every day. We do that through five foundational pillars of Mary & Martha:

  1. Purpose: To do our work as unto the Lord with integrity and with an eternal point of view.  Women building women up in their faith and in their business through unity and love for the common good for all.   

    Whatever you do, do it wholeheartedly, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24 (NKJV)

  2. Product: Mary & Martha’s products bring warmth to the home and grace to the heart through products of excellence that convey faith, hope and love. 

    Three things will last forever – faith, hope and love- and the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13:13 (NLT)

  3. Presence: His presence flowing through you and out to others.  As we serve others He uses us to be a blessing to others through our actions, attitudes and our words.

    Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father, who is in heaven. Matthew 5:16 (AMP)

  4. Prayer: To seek God and to receive His promises. As we honor and praise God, ask for forgiveness, come to Him with thankfulness in our hearts, it opens the door to ask and receive His direction and blessings. To see lives blessed and changed through answered prayer.

    For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.  Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. Jeremiah 29:11-12 (AMP) 

  5. Power: To daily be filled and guided by the Holy Spirit and completely surrendered and dependent upon His will, His power to live an abundant, victorious life that will glorify God and express His heart toward one another and toward those we serve.

    You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere. Acts 1:8 (NLT2)

Our mission, our vision and our five pillars all stand on one foundational element, Love.

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one as a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these, put on love which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body.  And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in your richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:12-17

Love is essential for our business to hold together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:12 clearly expresses, it is through having a compassionate heart, through extending kindness toward one another. We do this through humbly and meekly having patience with one another and through forgiving each other as the Lord has forgiven us, so we also must forgive. And verse 14, highlights the most crucial element at the heart, “And above all these, put on love which binds everything together in perfect harmony”. 

Reflecting on verse 14, “And above all these, put on love which binds everything together in perfect harmony. “Love over All.” Colossians 3:14 instructs us to “Put on Love.” Love is a Choice… Love is Action!

At Mary & Martha, our heart’s desire is to be in perfect harmony, to enable us to better live out our mission of women building women up in faith & business, and help us to fulfill our vision, to bring eternal hope and encouragement to every home, every day.
