If you've ever wondered how one 'hears' the voice of God, how to balance a strong communal ethic with listening to one's inner call, how to integrate a strong sense of responsibility to familiar duty with the call to work in ministry, this memoir is a must read... Martha tells us the story of her life and faith journey as it weaves itself among themes of family, church, community ministry and health struggles; and there is much here to ponder.

This story includes important insight into all of the above and yet, most importantly, it gives us a glimpse of the struggle of one woman to become one of the first ordained women in the Mennonite Church in Ontario...

This was hard work. And she does not claim to have done it alone. The power of the Spirit, the helping hands of many women and later the wise and steady presence of her husband Gerald, are all important parts of the journey.
