The Mary Marantz Show

Oct 11, 2022

What do you do when the joy of life seems out of reach? We know life isn’t always going to be rainbows and butterflies, but what happens when the pain feels insurmountable?

If you’re facing new and deeper trials in life, Mary’s conversation with Nicole Jacobsmeyer is here to bring to you a respite and a touch of hope for your upcoming days.

In her new book, Take Back Your Joy, Nicole Jacobsmeyer shares 10 steps that grew her from defeated and ill-prepared for relentless trials, to living as a joy-filled reflection of God’s faithfulness.

Taking the book content even deeper, Mary and Nicole are chatting about the hard topics that some may shy away from. They discuss:

  • The difference between happiness and joy,
  • What it looks like to run after the Promiser, not just His Promises,
  • The privilege of suffering for Jesus,
  • Why God is rarely on our timeline, and
  • How to feel God’s presence even when He’s not moving


This conversation is both touching and uplifting and is here to help carry you through the days that feel too heavy to walk alone.
