We were next introduced to Mary of Bethany who understood the importance of taking time to build a special friendship with Jesus. She was able to be real with Jesus, telling him of her pain and sorrow. You can read about her here.

Last we met Mary, mother of Jesus who took a great risk in doing what God asked.  Her "yes" allowed us to experience the greatest love of all time Read about her here.

Even though these Mary's were all very different, they each shared a love for Christ and their relationship with Him allowed them to do incredible things.
