One Simple Way to Support Grace is Messy

One Simple Way to Support Grace is Messy July 2, 2016


In 2010, I started blogging, speaking, hosting a radio show, and getting in front of anyone who would listen to me talk about this crazy thing called grace is messy. Little did I know, I would need a truckload of messy grace near the end of 2012 after a failed suicide attempt.

In the four years of recovery since that suicide attempt, I have found grace, hope and compassion outside of only altar calls and prayer benches. And I have discovered that God’s love is greater than I could have ever imagined.

Maybe you’re in spiritual recovery too, or you have the feeling that there must be something more than what you’re getting in a weekly sermon. I get it. And I’ve created an entire platform to tell people THERE IS MORE!

I would love for you to become invested in this radical movement of grace givers.

Have you ever had big dreams to change the world? Me too. If you’ve never quite figured out how, here’s your chance…

It starts with a website with a weird name: Patreon. It’s an incredible opportunity with tangible rewards. But to make it happen, I need a dollar. Could you spare a buck?

Could you spare a buck if I told you your $1 really could change a life? I know it can. I wake up every single day with the goal of changing one life. Telling one person their life and story matters. Encouraging one guy or girl to keep on living. Or to get out of an abusive situation. Or to try again tomorrow.

Everything I have done for nearly seven years has been out of my own pocket. But it’s time to grow, friends. And in order to do that, I need your help.

I’m blessed to be able to reach tens of thousands of people every single month through my blog, plus social media, video chats on Blab, and my newsletter. But I want to do more.

Will you help?

Here’s an idea of our expenses:

  • Website & E-course build (one-time costs): $1,150
  • Newsletter: $29/month
  • E-course maintenance: $39/month
  • Blog and book editing: $200/month
  • Marketing: $250/month
  • Total regular monthly expenses: $540

Income from Grace is Messy for the month of June: $50

If we add the radio show twice per month, this would increase costs by $250/month, plus the additional time it would require to plan, promote, and host the show.

The great news? This is all stuff I LOVE doing.

The even better news? Now YOU can help me make it happen!

One of the big goals, which would require us reaching our first goal of $2,500 is to start up the Grace is Messy Radio Show again. If you joined the tribe after 2012, you missed it. But here’s a few of my favorite Grace is Messy Radio episodes:

  1. William Paul Young and The Shack
  2. Matthew Barnett and The Cause Within You
  3. Scott Wilcher and The Orphaned Generation
  4. Growing Up Fatherless with James Spann
  5. XXX Church: Let’s Talk Porn and Sex
