"MARY YOU ARE AN INCREDIBLE SPEAKER!  YOU MADE ME FEEL LIKE YOU WERE SPEAKING ONLY TO ME.  I WILL REMEMBER YOUR WORDS AND COME BACK TO THEM AS OFTEN AS I CAN"

- ALISHA HUDMAN

ATTENDEE

WHAT CONFERENCE ORGANIZERS ARE SAYING

Mary Marantz is a dynamic storyteller and courageous orator who uses her voice to awaken the hearts of every person that she meets. It is impossible to leave one of her talks unchanged. She is an extraordinary speaker.

Mary has this incredible gift of making people feel like she’s talking to you and only you. It’s no wonder her podcast is top-rated and she’s a sought after speaker- once people hear her, they want more. She spoke at the Bright Side Conference and was an attendee favorite. I highly recommend her for your next event!

author of  The White Dress in Color & founder of The White Dress Society

We were so honored to have Mary speak to The White Dress Society two years in a row. Joy. Light. Gratefulness. Those are the words that come to mind when thinking of the wildly talented Mary Marantz. She is a brilliant speaker, author and educator. She is a motivator and a goal setter. Her story of perseverance is filled with grit and faith and is inspiring and applicable to any organization. She makes you laugh and cry all in the same breath (If you were with us in Nashville or Chicago, you know exactly how that feels). You will leave her talk uplifted, inspired and motivated to do better in business... and in life.

ENDORSEMENTS for DIRT

“In Philippians, the apostle Paul talks about the great stuff he’s done, the horrible stuff he’s been through, and how it’s all forgettable in light of God. Those verses come to mind when I hear or read Mary’s words. Her story matters because all of our stories matter—but it’s not her accolades or her acknowledgments of pain that you’ll remember most. Her words reek of God’s grace, glory, and goodness, and of our ability to cling to them. Whether you come to this book with the most successful or the most stinky past, you’ll be blessed and loved well by Mary’s leading. She’s a good friend, and this is a good book.”

“It’s easy to want to discard your roots and turn away from the mess that made you, but Mary Marantz does just the opposite in this beautiful work. Filled with the kind of writing that drops you directly into the gritty details of the story, Mary sifts through her own ‘dirt’ to reveal pure treasures and glimpses of God to hold onto for the long haul. This book is gorgeously written, and every last word is so intentionally placed. The words are stunning. The pictures she paints are so real, I could not put it down! Get ready to have your heart shaken up and made better through the pages of this book.”

author of Come Matter Here and Fighting Forward (2021)

marriage and family therapist and author of From Lost to Found

“How is it possible to find myself within a story that is so different from my own? Through gorgeous writing and brave truth telling, Mary guides us to lean into our own stories and find transformation and redemption we never thought possible. Dirt is an anthem of love over circumstances and faith over fear. I dare you to start this book and not read it in one sitting. I know it will leave you inspired, challenged, and changed.”

ENDORSEMENTS for DIRT

“Dirt is a beautifully written memoir that I could barely put down. Mary’s words are equal parts poetry and pain, sadness and soaring redemption. For every one of us who has ever wished for an easier story, Dirt is the fight song we have been waiting for. An invitation to trade shame, striving, perfectionism, and unforgiveness for grace, rest, freedom, and reconciliation. I found myself repeatedly nodding my head, seeing myself in her story, even though our pasts could not be more different. I can’t think of a more important, desperately needed message right now. This book is a wakeup call, a resounding reminder to stop running and to dig deep into the mud that made us.”
