Myth-Busting: Myths Around Success with Mary Marantz

The Going Scared Podcast with Jessica Honegger

The myth of momentum and success can be crippling. In this conversation with Mary and Jessica, we uncover the realizations that success is not what we're called to and we can actually go a lot further when we plan rest into the journey. At some point, you have to surrender that myth of success and learn to redefine it. We only move into significance when we turn that filter outward and concede the old stories we've told about ourselves.

093: Letting God Use Your Story with Mary Marantz

The Living Room with Joanna Weaver

“If God can create His proudest creation from mud, what can He do with the mud in our lives?” Have you ever felt disqualified by your origin story? Or perhaps driven to prove that you’re better than your past? In today’s episode, Mary Marantz shares how God has helped her navigate the broken pieces of her story and to approach it with compassion rather than judgment or bitterness, resentment or regret. We dive into her memoir, Dirt: Growing Strong Roots in What Makes the Broken Beautiful, but also her newest book, Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots: Finding Grace, Freedom and Purpose in an Over-Achieving World. No matter what your story has been, God wants to redeem it for your good and His glory. There is so much good stuff in this episode. I hope you’ll share it with a friend. Important Takeaways from Show In making peace with our pasts, we take the muddy, the hard, the broken, and the beautiful and ask God to help us see it through the lens of grace. We can stop holding our present prisoner to the things we think we must do in order to count. Generational chains can break without the severing of ties as we honor the roots, strengthen them, and grow new fruit. The things you thought were shattered are mere reflections of light, love, and beauty. Achieving can start to feel like oxygen, it is something we feel like we need in order to survive. If we try to rush the process that God is taking us through, we only produce shallow roots that easily break-the slower growth equals the strongest roots. Significance is not about us; it is simply taking the gifts God has given us to serve and love others. We often think, “if I don’t work for it, I don’t deserve it,” but God’s love says “let it be easy, let it be light” “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 Links from Show Dirt: Growing Strong Roots in What Makes the Broken Beautiful Mary’s Newest Book: Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots: Finding Grace, Freedom and Purpose in an Over-Achieving World Justin Kendrick – “The Spirit-Led Life” Joanna’s New Book: Embracing Trust: The Art of Letting Go and Holding On to a Forever-Faithful God [Disclosure: I make a small commission from affiliate links used in this post.] Connect with Mary Marantz Website | Instagram | Facebook

Making Room for Slow Growth with Mary Marantz

Faith School Podcast

We don’t like slow growth. We like fast paced, smooth sailing, and abundant growth. We like achievements and we like them NOW. Especially as Christians we are after a certain image to tell the world that we are perfectly put together on behalf of the gospel. But what if growth and sanctification was a slow, gentle process. A steady smoothing out of our edges and flaws being made new by a good, gracious God. Today’s conversation with Mary Marantz explores making room for slow growth. Resources:Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots by Mary MarantzDirt by Mary MarantzAwake by Anjuli PaschallWhat's Here Now? by Jeanne StevensWhen Strivings Cease by Ruth Chou SimonsThe Power of Place by Daniel Gotheachieverquiz.comConnect with Mary:marymarantz.comYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-UdzJ9w-UFPv0cYPF9Le2wIG: @marymarantzConnect with Faith School: YouTube Channel: Faith School IG: @leah.rempel and @faithschoolpod leahrempel.com

What If Our Weakness Is Our Biggest Strength?: Natalie Grant & Mary Marantz

Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith

Maybe you’ve discovered yourself so aware of your apparent weaknesses that you couldn’t imagine how your weaknesses could be strengths. Throw in things like financial difficulties, an unexpected diagnosis, or loss of someone close to you, and it’s easy to think that life is nothing more than different shades of failure. Moments like these invite us to hear Jesus’ words to Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:9: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Our guests this week know weakness in its various forms.  Natalie Grant faced big hurdles to becoming a successful, award winning Christian musician only to find herself battling thyroid cancer in her forties. Would cancer take away her ability to sing—and if it did, was that really what defined her? Author and speaker Mary Marantz is grateful for what her childhood in rural West Virginia taught her, and carried on the ethic passed on to her from the hard-working logging community where her father made ends meet. In writing her story, Mary hopes that others will find themselves in some of the struggles she had, and that they may also find their weakness might be their biggest strength.  Links, Products, and Resources Mentioned: Jesus Calling Podcast Jesus Calling Jesus Always Jesus Listens Past interview: Emily Ley Upcoming interview: Janine Urbaniak Reid 2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV Natalie Grant thyroid cancer Truth 4Him Avalon Bernie Herms Jesus Calling for kids www.nataliegrant.com Mary Marantz Yale Law School Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots Dirt Pearl S. Buck www.marymarantz.com Interview Quotes: “I began to notice when I would sing, there was something that happened in the atmosphere and I could tell it was deeper than just a song and a voice.” - Natalie Grant “I think that God is consistently calling us to small steps of obedience. And when we choose to say yes in the small, it's often when people begin to trust us with the big.” - Natalie Grant “Oftentimes in my own life of faith, my experience is that God asks for the yes before He gives the details.” - Natalie Grant ”I can remember being very little, being four or five, and feeling like I knew God as the best friend. He was the green of the grass down to the very pigment. He was a bird stepping into flight. He was the feel of cold, hard ground. How when you broke it up in your hands, you couldn't forget how it felt. He was color and freedom and fire and dirt.” - Mary Marantz “We might know or get a glimpse of where we're headed when we're little, but we're not ready for it until there's time.” - Mary Marantz ___ Enjoy watching these additional videos from Jesus Calling YouTube channel: Audio Playlist: https://bit.ly/2PrbuwH Video Playlist: https://bit.ly/2PsmEkJ What’s Good?

124. Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots with Mary Marantz

Here's Where It Gets Interesting

In this episode, author Mary Marantz joins Sharon to talk about Mary’s new book, Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots. Together, Sharon and Mary touch on important topics like perseverance, education, and extending gentleness to each other and our own selves. Our egos want to keep us safe, but when we continuously operate from a place of safety, taking risks can feel too scary. Ultimately, slow growth equals strong roots means that, when a tipping point day comes in our lives, we have worked hard to grow our character and foundation to meet new challenges with strength and success. Growth and hard work doesn’t happen like a movie montage with a good soundtrack, it takes a lifetime. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
