Welcome to the Mary & Martha On-Demand Gathering! I know you’re busy, so I’ve set this up to be the easiest direct sales party you’ve ever attended! View the page and click the links on YOUR schedule, while supporting our Hostess and helping her earn free and discounted products!
Direct sales is simply the company representative bringing the products directly to you, rather than you going to a store to look for them yourself. For this event, I am your representative, so allow me to introduce myself to you…
Hi, I’m Sue Ellen! I’m a fire wife and homeschooling mom of 4. My son just graduated from homeschool this summer and has entered the workforce! My girls are 15, 13, and 11, and they help me with our hair accessory business.
I’ve been a country girl all of my life and a Christian for over 40 years! I love to garden (veggies and flowers) and I love animals. I’ve recently been learning how to embrace being the slow-paced introvert that God created me to be, and our country lifestyle fits me just right. Our little homestead includes dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, geese, guineas, and goats, as well as pet guinea pigs and a rabbit. (Fun fact: rabbit manure doesn’t have to be composted before used on the garden! Bet you weren’t expecting to learn that today!) lol
I joined Mary & Martha in May 2020, a time that will go down in history as the time of lockdowns and stay-at-home orders. I loved the hope & encouragement that this company offers, while pointing everyone to Jesus! This was really needed during 2020, and I believe, still needed today.
If you haven’t heard of M&M (no, I’m not talking about the candies), we are the direct sales division of DaySpring, which is now part of the Hallmark company. We bring you that high quality you trust from those brands, but we’re all about the message!
We are women building up women in faith and business, as we provide eternal hope & encouragement to every home, every day!
Expanding our reach
Every purchase made through this Gathering, as well as future purchases, and dedicated donations, help support Compassion International. We are partnered with Compassion to provide nutrition, education, medical care, spiritual support and more for children in the Arusha region of Tanzania, Africa. Read more about this partnership, or find a child you can sponsor here.
In the fall of 2021, we went a step beyond and did an extra drive for Compassion Tanzania, raising money specifically for young girls to be able to stay in school, rather than having to drop out and get married. (We are not opposed to marriage, but we’re talking about girls as young as 11 that were being married off because their family couldn’t afford to feed them.) As a mom of daughters, I couldn’t imagine a situation so desperate, and feel so honored to be a part of giving back to Compassion. Our family has also served as a Compassion Sponsor since 1999, and my parents were before that, so I know this is a long term ministry with a track record of making a difference in the Kingdom of God!
The Hostess of this Gathering is going to receive an amazing bonus thank you gift, in addition to her free and discounted items! She can choose from eight different items, like the Grace & Gratitude Footed Server above, once the party reaches $200 in sales! For a closer look at this month’s Host Bonus Items and other Hostess Benefits, click here.
This month, all Hostesses also have the opportunity to earn a free Grow in Grace Planter Box with her party, and I can’t wait to give your Hostess one, too! More info on that planter later…
Now I’d like to introduce you to the different collections available from Mary & Martha! There is literally something for everyone, and every item has a scripture reference to go along with it!
**Please Note: If you click a link in this post to go to an item or group of items, you are not automatically connected to your Gathering. You will be prompted to associate your order with an open party, or Gathering, before you check out though, so make sure to look for your Hostess’s name!
Lanterns, baskets, pillows, throws, planters, and candles…. These are just a few of the many things you can find in our Home Collection! They blend perfectly with our next collection…
Place settings, pitchers, mugs, platters, pedestals, lazy Susans, charcuterie boards, serving pieces and trays for days… Mary & Martha makes entertaining fun and beautiful; and every day at home more beautiful as well! We have three complete lines of tableware to suit your tastes, and serving pieces to mix, match and coordinate. Every item in the photo above, even in the background but aside from food and pine cones, is a M&M Kitchen & Table piece!
Home and Table are the Martha collections. Martha often gets a bad rap for complaining that her sister was not helping, but it is not a bad thing to be hospitable or to serve and make your guests comfortable, either.
1 Peter 4:9 says, “Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay.” In Matthew 20:28, Jesus taught about us to serve like him, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Devotionals, Bibles, greeting cards, encouraging notes and scripture to share… Our Faith Collection is stocked with items that will encourage and inspire, and tools to help you dig deeper into the Word! You can flip through our current Bibles, accessories and devotional resources from our Faith Collection in the seasonal Resource Catalog here. You’ll also find journaling tools, encouragement gifts, sharables, Bible covers & tabs.
The Faith Collection will also include bags, totes, t-shirts, mugs & decor with a scripture or encouraging message.
As a homeschool mom, books are a big deal! I also come from a long line of book lovers… and I L-O-V-E our Faith Collection! (…especially the kids books coming up next!)
Toys, books and educational tools to lovingly and gently point your little ones to Christ… You’ll be impressed by these quality items that teach God’s truth and morals! Our Kids Collection is just what you need for your own little ones, grand kids, nieces & nephews, and gifts for birthdays & baby showers! Every book, puzzle and toy will teach the children in your life that they are loved and valuable to God, and how to live in a God-honoring way.
Faith and Kids are the Mary collections. These are the tools you need to lead yourself, a small group of friends and your children & grandchildren to sit at the feet of Jesus and soak in his love for you.
Luke 10 teaches us that Mary sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught, and in verse 42, Jesus said, “There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Join the Sisterhood!
I know every company’s Consultants will tell you that they’ve really enjoyed the people they’ve met through this business model. And it’s true – I’ve been involved with a number of companies over the years, and am still an independent consultant with another company as well. You do meet amazing people in direct sales and make some great friendships.
I think the thing that sets Mary & Martha apart for everyone else is the faith-based culture that indwells from Corporate on down. They pray for the kits before they’re mailed out. They pray for the Consultants by name and even send out hand-written encouragement cards. (I got a hand-written prayer card this summer!) The Consultants pray for each other and do Bible studies and devotionals together and with our Customers. The Truth of God’s Word is woven throughout this business opportunity.
You can find a brief, 15 minute video about the Mary & Martha Difference here, and find details about our currently available New Consultant Kits here. The kits change slightly each month, but that link would be the most current selections.
It’s time to SHOP!
Text me at (254) 988-7217 with a screenshot of your cart before checking out so I can make sure you’re taking advantage of all of the current customer specials! I want to help you get the best deal possible!
