A Little About Me
I’ve been sharing with women for the last 15 years — from leading Bible study to serving as women’s ministry leader, I’ve had the joy and the honor to serve a wide array of women.
My professional speaking career began in 2008 and I’ve shared with over 30 groups in a variety of settings including retreats, conferences, brunches, luncheons, and everything in between. I speak only through the Lord’s will and wisdom, I’m much more a mess than a messenger. But God is good and He has called me into this walk with His women. I’m honored and humbled by His calling.

Along with speaking, I’m also the author of God, Grace, and Girlfriends: Adventures in Faith and Friendship.
Below are a couple of endorsements on the book:
“My friend Mary Snyder has tackled one of the best, yet toughest things we deal with daily. Our friendships. She untangles the truth behind our need for each other and walks us through the challenge of finding the right girlfriends. So whether we are looking for a loyal friend or thankful we have one, Mary will unpack the great adventure of friendship and how to keep it thriving.”
—Lysa TerKeurst, speaker and New York Times best-selling author of Made to Crave
“Mary Snyder is the most perfect person to write a book for girlfriends and their adventures! Her beautiful, tender personality shines through every chapter. I have enjoyed reading each page; but more importantly, I am reinspired to be intentional and purposeful with my friends. May these words teach us all to treasure God’s good gifts to us—girlfriends, grace, and adventures.”
—Angela Thomas, best-selling author and speaker
