Natalie Runion is a lot of fun to chat with. When I found her account, @RaisedToStay, on social media, I immediately knew I needed to get her on the podcast. Her own description is best here: “For those of us who have been called and crushed, loved and sometimes left, welcomed and wounded by the Church yet our anointing keeps us holding on.”

In honest, authentic fashion, Natalie talks about her childhood as a pastor’s kid, becoming a pastor and what makes her stay even after hardship and heartache. Her message is for those who have stayed and wandered, those who understand that church is not just a building, but a people and the home and heart of Jesus.

I loved talking with her and we’re book twins in that both of our books coming in out 2023! Don’t miss checking our her upcoming book!
