MS 017 Natalie Snapp: Addiction, Abortion & Finding God {Part 2}

Natalie Snapp

Welcome to episode 017 of Mud Stories!

Mud Stories is a podcast dedicated to bringing you inspiration in your muddiest moments, hope to make it through your mud, and encouragement for you to know, you are not alone.

In today’s episode I’m talking with my friend,  Natalie Snappa follower of Jesus, wife to Jason, and mom to one spunky girl and two spirited boys. Natalie lives in the Midwest with her energetic crew, and is most passionate about sharing the grace, mercy, and truth of God’s love for us all–regardless of our track record.

You can find Natalie pouring out her heart-words over at her website nataliesnapp.com. And she’ll be releasing her first book next spring called Heart Sisters: Be the Friend You Want to Have, which is available now for preorder!

In this episode we discuss:

  • The long journey of healing after abortion and loss, often layer by layer
  • Discerning God’s will and how to sort out hearing Him and His direction
  • The issues of dating after divorce
  • Walking in obedience as a new believer
  • The stress of a new marriage and parenting all at once
  • The desperation of motherhood
  • Learning about God’s Word
  • Having patience with those who are suffering
  • Accepting God’s forgiveness
  • And learning to forgive our own hearts

SCRIPTURE:

To all who mourn in Israel he will give: beauty for ashes;
joy instead of mourning; praise instead of heaviness.
For God has planted them like strong and graceful oaks for his own glory.
Isaiah 61:3 (TLB)
