Raised To Stay is for those of us who have been both called and crushed, loved and sometimes left, welcomed and wounded by the Church yet our love for Jesus keeps us holding on. Pressing in. Staying. Raised to Stay is for those who have stayed. Those who have wandered. It’s a call home. Not to just a physical church building but a call back to our first love, Jesus. Back to our original YES!

An anointed voice!!!!

I love this podcast and Natalie so much. She's the real deal. Growing up in the church, and now in full time ministry, I've seen a lot: the good, the bad, the good ugly, and the incredible. God didn't design us to tear down the bride--he designed us and called us to help build it and STAY.... to remain.... to abide. If we focus on anything other than Jesus, we are going to have issues. Even through telling of authentic stories, Natalie always points to Jesus!

The Holy Spirit brought me to this content

As a pk and church leader. This was so timely and just what I needed.

A Stayers Best Guide!

A MUST HAVE for those needing Jesus over church!

I read the book, attended her speaking at a conference, and have declared my copy a safe place for all those hurt by a church.

It gets loaned and re-loaned with the promise that when we come across the next person that needs it, that’s exactly where it goes. The RTS version of Flat Stanley! We love it so much. We love Natalie so much! Stay on!!!! 🤍🤍🤍
