Welcome to episode 016 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 Snapp—a 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!
I love this conversation with Natalie, not only because of her story, but because she is my dear friend. And can you believe last spring we coincidentally ended up on the exact same Caribbean cruise for one entire week? Crazy how that happened!
And I know how it did! Only God!
In this episode we discuss:
- The challenges and difficulties of addiction
- Growing up as a child of divorce
- Being a child of an alcoholic
- And caring for that parent as they are dying
Natalie also shares:
- The dysfunction of always needing to be in a relationship to feel purpose
- The personal and devastating effects of having an abortion
- And the whirlwind and pain that can come from being betrayed by a spouse’s infidelity and drug addiction

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)
