Mary was a simple, ordinary woman who was chosen by God for the extraordinary. Why would God choose this peasant girl and entrust her with the raising of our Savior? What can we learn from her life?
When we look at Mary's life from our limited perspective, we may see an ordinary girl living a simple life. God, however, saw a pure heart that was ready to obey Him. Henry Blackaby and his daughter Carrie Webb Blackaby show through the life of Mary how God can use anyone - regardless of stature or abilities-if their hearts are fully committed to Him.
