You know her. Maybe you are her. The Most Put-Together Woman in the Room. Make no mistake, she never feels the most put-together. And she doesn’t do it to make anyone else feel small. She walks in without a hair out of place, always delivering an A+ performance and relentlessly hard on herself, because she feels like that is the minimum standard she has to achieve just to be welcome in most rooms. Just to be invited to most tables. You would never know by looking at her the hard things she’s had to overcome in her life. She succeeds, almost compulsively, in this urgent attempt to outrun her own muddy story. But she is walking around now, reduced to this burned-out, brittle, fragile, ashes-to-ashes version of herself. She is, at last, exhausted.
When gold stars, highlight reels, and seeking approval from strangers are not enough, Mary Marantz assures you that you’re already worthy and gives you permission to stop running. In this powerful, life-giving devotional filled with stunning photography and design, she shows you how to move from achieving, striving, and performing for your worth to the grace, freedom, and purpose that come from knowing that your identity and calling are determined by God.
You are not in a race with anyone. Good things take time. And slow growth equals strong roots.
