Hi there! Thanks for wanting to learn about me.
I am passionate about helping Christians live in the fullness of knowing God and their identity in Christ, and activating their spiritual gifts! I teach and mentor people on how to believe, receive and release God’s best for them personally, relationally and professionally.
Here’s some of my background:
• Masters in Biblical Studies from Andrew Wommack’s Charis Bible College.
• Licensed & ordained minister.
• BSBA degree in Marketing from Central Michigan University while I was a Division 1 track & field athlete.
• Owner of Snyder Interiors LLC; Kitchen Designer & Renovation Coach
• Co-Founder of Fred & Lori Snyder Ministries
• Former board member & co-president of WalkingByFaith.tv ministry
•My greatest achievement: leaving my six-figure career to be a stay-at-home mom of twin boys. They graduated high school with honors and are thriving in college.
A Redeemed Marriage
Growing up, I learned how to perform to achieve success. I was an award-winning athlete, student and sales professional. Everything looked great on the surface, yet despite my striving, I still felt insignificant.
Shortly after I got married, I became a Christian. I went faithfully to church, served, read my Bible, prayed, and “did” the Christian disciplines, hoping to fill a longing of my heart. No matter what I did, I struggled with guilt and shame, and lacked confidence in discerning God’s voice. I was striving to “do” all of the disciplines to “become” something. It was exhausting and condemning.
My life radically changed in 2005, when our marriage appeared dead: we separated and filed for divorce. In desperation, I cried out to know God intimately instead of just “about” Him, to make me whole and my life significant. God met me where I was at and I experienced His unconditional love in a transforming way. I began an amazing journey of discovering my identity in Christ and power of the Holy Spirit. My husband saw how God radically changed my heart and began his own journey of genuinely knowing Him. As we both turned our hearts toward God, He redeemed us and we reconciled after six months. Only by God’s grace and mercy did we not get divorced! ~There is hope and healing for every situation, and we are living proof!
Although we had reconciled, we still struggled. We wanted to become the people God created us to be, but we needed mentors and teachers to help us grow.
In 2011, my husband, Fred exited his executive career, we sold everything and moved to Colorado Springs to go to Bible school, not to go into ministry to to go “all in” to know God and discover our purpose. For two years we studied the Bible and experienced many miracles and healings. We learned how to live empowered by allowing God’s life to live through us instead of striving to live “for” Him.
We have been married for 30 years and have amazing fraternal twin boys, whom are in college.
A Transformation Specialist
I have moved 22 times in the past 32 years, lived in six states multiple times (PA, MO, CO, AZ, MI, FL), owned and renovated our 8 homes, plus many others. No, my husband is not in the military, rather a sales executive in the home building industry. I am a former sales professional and kitchen designer and helped hundreds of people gain vision, purpose and a plan for transforming their home and business. (Here’s some of my past work)
I am a speaker, Bible teacher, life coach, spiritual mentor, wife and mom of adult twin boys. I also understand the power of vision and the process of change on a deep level, regardless if it’s a house, life or profession.
I have been teaching and mentoring others to easily understand and apply God’s Word, confidently hear His voice, discover their value and purpose, and activate their spiritual gifts. I have been a speaker in many retreats, churches, conferences and groups, had weekly gatherings in our home, and created & taught my own Bible studies. I have also developed several retreats to help women get refreshed and equipped to live the life God intends for them.
Although I am a Mid-West girl at heart, born and raised in Lansing, MI area, in 2020 I traded in my snow boots for flip-flops, and we permanently moved to St. Petersburg, Florida. I love being outdoors, fishing with my guys, and encouraging people to live life to the fullest!
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”Romans 12:2 NLT
I am a self-taught acrylic artist who loves creating wall canvas & unique hand-painted rocks. Several years ago, I was led by Holy Spirit to discover this gifting in me and how to express myself in this unique way. I paint on canvas and selected rocks from Lake Michigan. If interested in purchasing, I do commissioned work on a limited basis.
