About Mary

    Mary R Snyder, speaker,  humorist, ministry leader, blogger, author and social media girl   About me? I suppose this is where I should list credentials, education, publishing credits and all that fancy stuff -- but I'm not. (Okay, I'll list it at the end . .. . for those who just want to know) I just want to introduce myself: I’m a slightly frazzled, but always optimistic dreamer who loves the Lord and life. I’m married to the most wonderful man, Vaughn, and mom to two incredible daughters, Charity and Paige. The Lord called me into His service many years ago, but I wasn’t the most willing participant. I struggled with doing His will and continued on my own path until I finally figured it out – He is the Joy in my life and apart from Him I can do nothing. Once this realization hit, I jumped on board in this adventure of life with the Lord and it’s been non-stop since. He’s taking me through some mighty peaks and He’s carried me through some valleys, but the lessons He’s taught me along the way are invaluable. These lessons are the basis for my speaking topics and my book (God, Grace & Girlfriends: Adventures in Faith and Friendships) which is scheduled to release in December 2011 by New Hope Publishing. You can read about my speaking here. My family and I attend church in North Central Alabama. I've served as Women's Ministry leader and led Bible study for years. We are blessed to serve in a wonderful Southern Baptist Church and with some great people.
