As I pay for much of the web fees, yearly software fees, and other necessities that keep this website and this ministry online out of my pocket, and as I am on a limited disability pension, I’ve discovered every day is a fantastic opportunity to step out in faith. I regularly see God come through in miraculous ways!
You probably give to your local church and more worthy ministries, and you don’t know me or my ministry from a hole in the wall. If you’d like to know more about me and this ministry, click here. However, even after reading what I am all about, you are probably reluctant to give to a total stranger. I get that!
One time ‘Tip Jar’
Become a Patron!
What is Patreon? It is a crowdfunding membership platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service, with ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or “patrons.” As I am an author, I fit into this category and as I am branching out into daily YouTube Vlogs, I also fit this category as a creative. How does it work? You commit to contributing to the process on a monthly basis, for as low as 1.00 US a month. That is the cheapest rate Patreon allows. What do you get in return? PDF copies of my books, membership to a secret Facebook group that I use for brainstorming and prayer requests for my ministry and where I post occasional words of encouragement just for my “tribe.”
There are two other ways you can help that will not require you to give to me or the ministry directly.
Are you dissatisfied with your current WebHost if you have a website?
If you have a website and are tired of poor customer service or you are thinking of self-hosting your blog, I highly recommend SiteGround. Yes, I am an affiliate, and if you sign up with them I do receive a small financial bonus, but that is not why I recommend them. I commend them for their incredible customer service. I have had websites since 1996, and I have hosted those websites on at least five Web Host companies. Hands down, SiteGround has been the most helpful web host of them all, and they have had the smallest downtime. In less than 10 minutes, they solved a problem that my website was having for 2 years. This problem was caused by my previous web host’s lack of tech support. That web host’s customer service live chat department refused to help me and just kept pointing me to help files that were created for trained IT techs. I do have a passing understanding of what goes on behind a website than the average person might – but their help files were way beyond my understanding.
One tip in choosing a Web Host provider – do NOT rely on review sites. They are usually fake or they slant heavily toward a provider that they are an affiliate of. Go by word of mouth. Ask your friends. Ask them about downtimes, customer service, ease of using the various back-end areas that you will need access to, etc. Pricing is not always the best way to choose a web host provider. You definitely get what you pay for in this case. I found SiteGround after I shared my frustration with my former provider with friends who are seasoned website owners. They all pointed me to Siteground. The REVIEW sites gave my former provider 4.5 out of 5 stars. And yet, every web owner I know who used that former provider left due to horrendous customer service and downtimes.
Click here to learn more about SiteGround. If you want to think about it before signing up, please come back to my website before signing up to make sure you are entering the site through my affiliate link. Once again, this will not cost you anything extra.
Prayer is as valuable as anything listed above, if not more and I deeply appreciate your prayers!!
