The following are letters and excerpts from emails received by the Snyders 
and The Snyder Foundation acknowledging counseling or the gift of books.

Hello Chuck and Barb:  What a delightful surprise!  I happily opened the "care package" that you so graciously sent... and am astonished that you would so bless me and my ministry!  I am so touched that you would take the time to prepare the package and send a personal note.  Your humor shines through, of course, which makes me chuckle and appreciate you all the more!

I often recommend Incompatibility: Grounds for a Great Marriage so to have an extra copy for my office bookshelf is a bonus.  I have not read The Way to a Woman's Heart but it looks intriguing.

It makes my heart sing when I think of the two of you -- a clear demonstration of the movements of God's grace, done with style!  A heartfelt "thank you" for the generous and thoughtful gift which will be enjoyed for years, by many people.

Chuck, I just wanted to thank you again for all the awesome books you and your wife sent. I started reading A Woman's Guide To Understanding A Man about 2 days ago and can hardly put it down! It is hystericalllll  Not to mention totally true! LOL Beyond all the laughing I am doing (out loud mind you) while I read is FULL of wonderful insight!!! THANK YOU SOOOOOOO MUCHIII! I can't wait to pass this book around to all my friends!

Oh, and get husband who HATES to read is actually reading your books too! I can't tell you all the books I have bought (Everything from Gary Smalley to that "men are from mars" guy) and he has NEVER had any interest in reading them! If they aren't on tape he isn't going to have anything to do with them (Mind you, when I bought them on tape all they did was collect dust!)  So, for me to see him actually picking up a book and reading it is a HUGE blessing!! more thing l wanted to share with you. I have been praying faithfully for about 2 months now that my husband would show an interest in being a spiritual leader in our family. Everyday I have done my bible studies...shared verses with him and never said anything. Then, all of a sudden he decided he was going to start having daily devotions tool! What an answer to prayer! He actually came to me and told me he was jealous of how close I was growing to the Lord and wanted to have that relationship with God too! Wow! Shock! That would have NEVER happened before! So, now I am seeing all the blessing that came of his betrayal and confession. God has used all of that to make amazing changes in each of our lives and our marriages PRAISE GOD!!!!

Thank you again for listening before and guiding me along as I began to forgive him.

Thank you, Chuck, for the wisdom and informative reply you sent. This is truly wonderful and now explains everything in a much brighter light. Also I was always resenting my husband for his reluctance in renewing our marriage vows. But now I can ask God to forgive me for my part in the divorce and for him, too.

You have made more sense in your reply, than all of the people I have shared with.  Which us probably why I was confused. And no, you have not offended me.

Thank you again. May God richly bless you and yours.

Your sister in Christ,

Mr Snyder - thank you so much for the response. I've shared it with several lady friends and they were truly blessed by your response just as much as I was. This answers so many questions for me in just your one statement. I do have a clearer understanding now and do acknowledge that even though we are all created as humans by our Father God, we are different and therefore may not see all situations the same as our brothers. Thanks again and I'm sure I'll be writing to again with other questions.

Hello Chuck, just wanted to say thanks for the books.  I received them yesterday and my wife is over the moon that I've got signed books by a famous author.

Just to keep you up to date with my situation, my wife and I are now back together and our relationship is better than is has ever been, both with each other and God.  I am trying really hard to love and serve my wife and your book (The Way to a Woman's Heart) has really helped me.  So thanks for your prayers and your wisdom.

You sent me another copy of the above book so I am going to give my unsigned book to a good friend of mine who is having marriage trouble at the moment.  I have also signed up to do my Diploma in Professional Counseling as I believe God is calling me into that area and I hope one day I can be used even just a fraction of how God has used you.

God has used your book to change my life and I thank you and I thank God!  God Bless!
