The Mary Marantz Show

Jun 22, 2021

Do you wonder if you are LIVING life or LETTING life happen to you?

Today, Mary is joined by watercolor artist, popular blogger, and new author - Emily Lex - as the two dive into Emily’s brand new book, “Freely and Lightly: God’s Gracious Invitation to a Life of Quiet Confidence.

Even though Emily appeared to have it all, on the inside she was having an identity crisis that was leading her down a path of burnout and unhappiness. Freely and Lightly is a collection of essays of Emily’s faith journey, about how she was searching for her identity in all the wrong places while hustling, striving, and scrambling to find worthiness. Emily’s new book encourages the reader that God is offering a better way.

On today’s episode, Mary and Emily:

  • Dig into this better way, define what real rest and quiet confidence can mean for your life,
  • Talk about the feeling of unrest in your soul and what to do about it,
  • Discuss this notion of busy as a badge of honor, and
  • Dive into what it looks like to keep adding to our calendars in an effort to keep up and the journey to finding a better way.

After listening, you will:

  • Be ready to free yourself from the expectations of the world (and the expectations you place on yourself),
  • Learn to rest in God’s unforced rhythms of grace,
  • Be equipped to dive into the real reasons behind your busyness, and
  • Find it time to stop relying on yourself and your own efforts and start relying on Jesus.

If you are ready to leave the burdened and heavy way of living behind, and step into a life of quiet confidence, living freely and lightly, then you will not want to miss today’s eye-opening episode!
