The Mary Marantz Show

Nov 17, 2020

Do you struggle trying to be everything to everyone? Are you feeling burned out and overwhelmed? If so, you are not alone, and today’s guest is here to help you trade perfection for connection.

Today Mary is joined by author and blogger, Kelly Balarie. Kelly is a blogger at Purposeful Faith and author of the book Rest Now: Seven Ways to say No, Set Boundaries, and Seize Joy. Kelly is passionate about joining hands with women who often find themselves stuck in the pits of life. Step-by-step, word-by-word, her dream is that women can emerge fear, fret, and panic-free.

In today’s episode, Mary and Kelly dive into Kelly’s new book, Rest Now, which is all about finding the permission to breathe. It exposes the lies that distract, tire, and bully, so we don't strive for rest but love from it, like Jesus did. Kelly and Mary uncover the reasons that we really struggle with telling people ‘no’ or disappointing people over setting boundaries while Kelly provides a blueprint for what to do the next time you feel like someone is crossing the very lines that you purposely set.

After listening, you will learn how to:

  • Create boundaries that allow you to overflow with love;
  • Say ‘no’ so you don't hate yourself later;
  • Ditch passive-aggressive behaviors in favor of healthy conversations; and,
  • Embrace permission-giving thoughts to create mental space for God.

If you are ready to leave the guilt behind, and carve out space for more joy in your life, you will not want to miss this practical, eye-opening episode!
