BIRMINGHAM, Alabama—April 3, 2012—Join Mary R. Snyder, author of God, Grace, and Girlfriends, as she travels historic Route 66 on the Great Girlfriend Adventure. Beginning on April 12 and ending April 24, Snyder’s road trip will make stops in Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico.
Proverbs 31 Ministries in North Carolina will be hosting a kick-off party for the Great Girlfriend Adventure on Tuesday, April 3. The party will be streamed online live at maryrsnyder.com and also through Facebook and Twitter (@MaryRSnyder), with fun giveaways and prizes (11 a.m. EST or 10 a.m. CST).
The Great Girlfriend Adventure is about stories. Just as historic Route 66 holds stories from travelers of days gone by, this road trip is an opportunity for women to share their stories.
“We all have a story, and we all need someone willing to listen,” says Snyder.
Her journey begins in Oklahoma and will end in New Mexico. Along the way, she and her girlfriends have planned several “faith pit stops” to connect with women on the road.
These faith pit stops will take place at historic landmarks along Route 66. Activities include painting Scripture on Cadillacs at Cadillac Ranch in Texas, hanging out at the teepees at Wigwam Motel in Arizona, and taking pictures of the unique Blue Swallow Motel in New Mexico.
“The whole plan is filled with fun. And it will be fun, but God has more for us on that road,” Snyder says. “He has hearts and stories.”
If you can’t join her in person, follow Snyder and find out more through her blog, Facebook, and Twitter (@MaryRSnyder). NewHopeDigital.com also will be recording 2 podcasts with Snyder during her time on the road. Be sure to check back for updates.
