The Mary Marantz Show

Aug 29, 2023

Are you weighed down, exhausted, and overwhelmed by your daily life? Do you feel disconnected from yourself and God?

During a season of loss, Hosanna Wong felt stuck. 

The things that she had built her life on that she believed would last suddenly were crumbling down. Deep within herself, she knew there was more to her life but it seemed impossible to pinpoint her discontentment when she didn’t even know who she was anymore. 

If you feel stuck in your patterns of thinking or defined by what you offer over who you are this episode is for you!

Join Hosanna and Mary as they discuss what reconciling her story taught her about herself and why we can only be defined by the One who created us.

Tune in to hear:

  • What we can learn from David’s journey to fight Goliath

  • The four rhythms we need to sustain our daily lives

  • Why the fight for our lives begins with our schedules


As Hosanna shares, an identity crisis is never something we would intentionally seek out but there is complete intention in us reaching the end of ourselves.  You are not crazy in feeling lost or confused, you have just been told lies your whole life, and now is the time to recover what is actually true. 

Today is the day you stop seeing yourself through the broken lens of others and through the eye of your Creator.

Friend, you are more than you were told.
