The Mary Marantz Show

Mar 1, 2022

Is it just me? Am I the only one who’s lonely? Am I the only one without friends? If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, then today’s episode is for you!

Today, Mary is joined by the founders of the widely popular “Sister, I Am with You” and authors of the brand new book, “I'll Be There (But I'll Be Wearing Sweatpants)” - Amy Weatherly and Jess Johnston! Through wisdom, humor, and confessional stories about the ups and downs of sisterhood, “I'll Be There” provides readers with the how of cultivating deep relationships in this messy, chaotic, beautiful life.

On today’s episode, Mary, Jess, and Amy tackle all things friendship and finding your people to do life with! Specifically:

  • How to dismantle the lies you’ve believed about friendship
  • Why it’s important to invest in the right friendships
  • Ways to make friendship the priority it should be in your life
  • The importance of loving yourself so that you can find people who will love you for you
  • If you are ready to find your people and feel completely accepted as you are - from the top of your messy bun to the tips of your unpedicured toes - then today’s episode is a must listen!
