The Mary Marantz Show

Oct 27, 2020

Do you long to find the freedom and courage to share your behind the ‘highlight reel’ moments in life? Perhaps you feel called to share your personal journey with the hope of helping others, but are unsure how much is too much. If you have ever found yourself in this position, then this episode is for you!

Today, Mary is joined by online encourager and podcaster, Rachel Awtrey. As the podcast host of “Behind The Bliss”, Rachel creates space for women to share stories and their reality of what life is really like behind the bliss so that others might experience an “oh yeah, me too” moment. Through heartbreak and loss, marriage and adventure, Rachel hopes to inspire others that it’s not about doing it all well at once but rather being obedient in our next step.

On today’s episode, Mary and Rachel dive into the idea of “faux vulnerability” in the world of social media; what it looks like to feel like you have to show up and share whatever you are going through in order to be ‘successful’ and gain a greater followership; and discuss the unique intersection of theology and social media.

After listening you will be equipped to use your vulnerability to help others vs. using your vulnerability as a commodity; be unafraid to lean into a new direction or dream in your life when no one around you seems to get it; and, understand what it really looks like to have a community of people around you who show up on ‘day 2’.

If you are ready to be encouraged to seek your ‘audience of One’ first and foremost, then you will not want to miss today’s impactful episode!
