Finding Your Place in the Heart of God
Getting God’s Love from Olur Heads to Our Hearts
We all know Jesus loved Mary – look how she worshiped. And we can understand why He loved Martha – after all, look how she served. But what about those of us who don’t know where we fit in the heart of God?
For many of us, moving the truth of God’s love from our heads to our hearts is a lifelong process. As we consider our inadequacies or grieve our shattered dreams, we find it difficult to believe that God cares for us personally.
In this life-giving book, Joanna Weaver shows you how to embrace the truth that Jesus loves you apart from anything you accomplish, apart from anything you bring. Just as He called Lazarus forth to new life, Jesus wants to free you to live fully in the light of His love, unbound from the graveclothes of fear, regret, and self-condemnation.
Combining unforgettable real-life illustrations with unexpected biblical insights, Lazarus Awakening invites you to experience a spiritual resurrection that will forever change your understanding of what it means to be the one Jesus loves.

"When you read Joanna Weaver's words and watch her on video, two truths become abundantly clear: she loves God's Word and she loves God's women. The rich stories of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus have been the heartbeat of Joanna's ministry for more than a decade, touching thousands of women around the globe. In her latest video series on Lazarus, she welcomes us to Israel. What a stunning backdrop for her teaching, where Joanna brings the Word alive!"
~ Liz Curtis Higgs – Best-selling author of Bad Girls of the Bible
"From the moment I heard Joanna’s words, 'There is no tomb that God cannot open,' I knew this book would be life-changing for many."

"I am honored to endorse all of Joanna's DVD teachings. She has a gifted ability to bring Jesus into every area of our lives. Her heart for the Lord and her love for people will bring freedom in Christ through these studies. What a blessing you will experience with Joanna and the Word."

"Once again, Joanna has given us the gift of God’s soul-freeing principles communicated compellingly through her own, very relatable, “in-the-Word-immersed” life and words. I found myself nodding—with tears (and hope!) welling up—as ancient truths found their mark, speaking to my present-day longings and struggles. A real bonus is how beautifully the DVDs are produced, including the Lazarus series that was filmed in the Holy Land, giving an even richer, historically-enhanced visual experience!"
~ Dr. Jodi Detrick, Speaker and Author of Jesus-Hearted Woman
"Joanna Weaver's new DVD studies are such a fantastic addition to her books. The setting in Israel is the perfect complement to the material and really help the stories hit home. Joanna is so open and authentic - a fresh voice in this increasingly individualistic world. Each of these DVD studies help readers dig deeper into God's Word and truly apply the lessons to their daily lives."
