Because our service to you is in cyberspace, there is never an hour of any year when our doors are not open. I’m always mulling over the “will you help me” question. By the grace of God, we have never turned away anyone from giving them help. In this podcast, I want to share with you some of the ways you may receive help from this ministry.
There are many means of grace poured out for your benefit. With all relationships, there must be a mutual, reciprocal commitment. There are some things we can do, and there are a few you must do. If we both work at it, we will see the Lord do remarkable things for His fame and everyone’s benefit.
Our building is a salvation sanctification superstore shoved into cyberspace to serve the world. We intentionally chose not to have brick-and-mortar structures. Our goals have always been low overhead, easy access, and maximum reach. There is another goal—to make our resources as free as possible so that no one would have an excuse for not benefiting.
An easy way to remember our content offerings is what you see in our navigation bar: Read, Watch, Listen, Discuss. You may read, watch, listen, and discuss all things pertaining to life and godliness. Let me break down your benefits package for you.
Articles – I have written hundreds of articles about life issues. Most of our content is evergreen, not time-dated, current events. If you have a question, chances are, I have addressed it.
Articles in Podcast – In the Life Over Coffee podcast network is all of our articles produced in an audio format. We knew it was crucial for our community to have the option to listen to each article in a podcast. More than 70 percent of the people who come to us do so on a mobile device, which is why podcasts are more convenient than reading an article.
Life Over Coffee Podcast – Our second podcast network is topics where I do not write out the content in an article but provide bullet points in Show Notes. I also do interviews, which is one of the reasons we started this network. We wanted the ability to flex.
Free Updates – You may also subscribe to our weekly eBlast, where we keep our community up-to-date on our latest, most current resources. You may also subscribe to our once-a-month newsletter to our supporting community.
Store – We have a store full of books and downloadable eBooks. I do write paperback books that you can purchase, and we have a lot of downloadable content on our store page. While on the store page, check out our book recommendation list. We recommend approximately a thousand books on a range of topics.
Videos – We are producing new video content each week. There are hundreds of videos on our site, and all of them are free. Our videos range from forty-five seconds to one hour. The topics are seemingly endless.
Private Forum – Those who support us financially have access to the private member’s forum. Our private forum is a much smaller community where we interact with those looking for help.
Mastermind Program – Some people want to take their training to the next level. These folks become students in our Mastermind Program. They hire us to train them for two or three years. It is a self-paced study program that tackles theology, psychology (sanctification), and the application of the two into their lives with the hope they will be able to help others.
Book Me as a Speaker – I have been speaking publicly for several decades on dozens of topics. I currently do a limited number of speaking events for churches, conferences, and business organizations each year. You can click here to begin the process of booking me for your organization.
Counseling – In 2015, I stopped conducting biblical counseling sessions because I had two full-time jobs with counseling and our growing ministry. What we’re doing ministry-wise is more crucial to our mission. If you want to meet with someone for one-to-one counseling, you may go to this link.
Every week for many years, I have been pouring significant time, thought, love, and resources into this ministry. It’s my life’s work, which I provide free to all. It takes hundreds of hours a month and thousands of dollars to sustain. If you find any benefit in this labor of love, please consider a one-time or recurring donation of your choosing. Your support does matter. If you can help support our ministry, here are a few options for you:
