Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots
Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots: Finding Grace, Freedom, and Purpose in an Overachieving World
By Mary Marantz
You cannot achieve your way into worth.
You know her. Maybe you are her. The woman who feels like she must always be "on." The one who is always performing. She walks into every room relentlessly hard on herself, always attempting to deliver an A+ performance, because she believes this is the bare minimum standard she has to achieve just to be invited to most tables. You would never know by looking at her the hard things she's had to overcome. 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 on the internet are not enough, Mary Marantz gives you permission to stop running. In this unique, powerful devotional filled with stunning photography, she shows you how to move from achieving, striving and performing for your worth to the grace, freedom and purpose that come from knowing your identity and calling are determined by God.
You are not in a race with anyone. Good things take time. REAL things take time. And slow growth equals strong roots.
