About this episode:

From growing up in a single-wide trailer in the mountains of rural West Virginia to the halls of Yale Law School, Mary Marantz’s story is one of remembering our roots while turning our faces to the sky.  How do we hold both (honor for our past but excitement for what’s to come)? There’s a way! And Mary shares how in today’s episode through some amazing exercises, questions for you to ponder and funny stories of her own. Hey! It’s okay to change your mind in life. We talk about this, too 🙂

I am an online encourager based out of Birmingham, AL that's obsessed with my girls and sharing bits and pieces of my life. I wear a lot of hats these days including mama to two boys, military wife, blogger, podcast host and more. You can find me behind the microphone at Real Talk with Rach where we talk about everything from jeans to Jesus, playlists to pop culture, the good and the grief and everything in between.
