You will hear wisdom, encouragement, wisdom (repeated) and downright practical advice from that little girl who grew up to be quite the brave woman and mother. In this episode, she gives us practical ways we can show up for our kids who struggle with fear. (delete — and ways we can show up for our kids in the midst of struggle.

In addition, Marianne wanted to share another freebie with you moms of daughters – a letter that she first wrote for her daughter. Here is the link to that letter. Thank you Marianne!
Connect With Marianne, Really!
One of the things we LOVE about Marianne is that she is approachable. If you were touched by one of her books, reach out to her. If you have a question, reach out to her. If you want her to speak to one of your schools or your mom groups (especially if you are near NASHVILLE), reach out to her! Connect with her. Get to know her. She would love nothing more.
Connect with Marianne, here.
There is a beautiful, imperfect, brave soul behind those 50 books that is fighting for your kids to grow up and believe in themselves and find their own brave. We are so thankful that Marianne allows God to speak from her heart right to our hearts through her extraordinary books.
Thank you Marianne for being on our podcast! Honored!
