Natalie serves as Pastor of Women at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO.  As a pastor’s kid, she developed a love for the Church at a very young age and has spent the last twenty years as a worship pastor, songwriter and speaker serving multiple churches and ministries across the country.  A few years ago Natalie launched Raised to Stay, an online community of pastor’s kids, pastors, church leaders and volunteers with a heart for reconciliation and healing for the Church.  Natalie will soon be adding “author” to her bio as she prepares for the release of her very first book with David C. Cook in Spring of 2023!
