About Us

“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen the good portion which will not be taken away from her.”

Luke 10: 41-42

About Us

Modern Day Marys was founded by Chelsea Wrobel after the Lord revealed to her that what He cares about most is our hearts and what he desires from us more than anything is devotion to Him and Him alone. The name Modern Day Mary is a nod to Luke 10 where Jesus speaks to Martha about her busyness, and how Mary’s decision to sit at His feet is the better choice. We feel passionately that this is a fact that we as the church often lose sight of, placing a stronger emphasis on serving than on true intimacy with the Lord.

Modern Day Mary hopes to provide women with tools that help foster intimacy with the Lord and inspiration through stories of women who are living and serving not out of obligation but out of genuine love and devotion to the Lord. Through these things we hope to spark a revival among the women of the Church, as we, like Mary, choose the better portion that will not be taken from us.

Our Hearts

Every woman on our team has experienced the life-giving transformative love of God through His son Jesus Christ. We desire more than anything else to see other women come to know and BELIEVE God’s love for them, and from that place be launched into the bold pursuit of becoming the woman God created them to be.

Wherever you find yourself on your journey with Jesus, we want to enter in with you through our blog, women’s events, and equipping resources, to encourage your pursuit of the only one who can satisfy the longing of our souls.
