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,  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 adult daughters, Charity and Paige who are married to great men  — and I’m the Gigi to one incredible little boy, Ben!

I have the most incredible job with Compassion International.  I dream up, develop, plan and execute speaker tours.  And of course, I work with an amazing team to make this happen. 

For years I was a speaker and I spoke to groups small to large across the country — from coast to coast.  I have a couple of books published and then I moved into my position with Compassion.  I realized that my season as a Christian speaker was coming to a close — and that worked for me.  I still do emcee a few events a year and love to just share funny stories, but developing a deep message for a group — that’s just not me.  

I still LOVE my Jesus but there are others who are called to teach, speak and preach to others.  My love is finding those people and developing a tour to showcase their messages.   

I also host a podcast with my best friend, Melinda Garman, Retro Road Podcast!  Melinda and I love to travel and we love all things Americana and a good roadside attraction so we did what everyone is doing — we started a podcast!  Hope you’ll join me.
