This conversation felt like a chat between close friends over a cup of coffee and was like therapy for my soul. Mary Marantz has a beautiful, poetic way of speaking and is the author of Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots:Finding Grace, Freedom, and Purpose in an Overachieving World
Mary shares her story of growing up in a trailer and working her way up to attending an ivy league school and receiving a book deal – and how none of that ended up satisfied the constant pressure she places on herself to achieve.
We discuss how this constant desire to feel seen in our world prevents us from truly seeing others, how celebrating the wins of the people in our lives heals our own hearts and how the desire to achieve should always be rooted in a purposeful work for God’s kingdom.
