The Mary Marantz Show

May 31, 2022

Do you feel an underlying anxiety that you're missing out on the ‘good life’? Do you zone out, swipe up, slim down, work hard, and spin in circles trying to achieve it? If you could use a new sense of hope, then today’s message is for you!

Today, Mary is joined by author, retired photographer, and spiritual director - Anjuli Paschall- as the two dive into Anjuli’s new book, “Awake: Paying Attention to What Matters Most in a World That's Pulling You Apart.” Casting a compelling vision for you to live a soul-awake life, “Awake” is an invitation to let go of expectations and trust where God is leading you.

On today’s episode, Mary and Anjuli dive into practical ways to awaken to the actual, beautiful life in front of you. Specifically: 

  • How to experience God by being fully awake through your senses

  • Why we feel we need to sleepwalk through life just to be safe and what to do about it

  • Where the ‘good life’ is and why we don’t have to chase it

  • The difference between transparency and vulnerability

  • What it means to become fully alive and connected in the thin spaces


If you are ready to breathe in, breathe out, and experience the full life that is right in front of you, then make sure to tune into today’s eye-opening episode!
