The Mary Marantz Show

Feb 8, 2022

Unanswered prayers. Regret of the past. Fear of the future. Do you ever find your circumstances to be just so overwhelming that you don’t know how you will ever find peace in your daily life?

If you are approaching life's challenges with anything other than faith and a calm confidence, then this episode is for you!

Today, Mary is joined for a third time by artist, designer, and writer - Morgan Harper Nichols - to dive deep into Morgan’s new book, “Peace Is a Practice: An Invitation to Breathe Deep and Find a New Rhythm for Life.” Designed to help you inhale and exhale amidst life’s outstanding questions, “Peace Is a Practice” is an invitation to help you become a peacemaker in your own life one day at a time. 

On today’s episode, Mary and Morgan tackle:

  • Generational grief and the power of storytelling 
  • How to show up everyday despite your circumstances
  • Ways to create beauty in a world that feels broken
  • The importance of letting go of ‘picture-perfect’

If you are ready to breathe in all of the grace available to you and release everything that is outside of your control, then make sure to tune in to today’s must-listen episode!
