Within each of us, there is a deep longing to understand who God is and why we are here on the earth.
And for those on a pilgrimage to fulfill that desire, I am here to help you.
WHAT IS PATREON?
Patreon is a platform making space for creatives to engage authentically with their audience. A simple platform making it possible for people to financially support the creatives who have played a pivotal role in transforming their lives. Think of patronage as an ongoing membership service like Netflix, but instead of movies, you’ll get a front row seat to my creative process and the beauty of life lived in England.
WHAT YOU RECEIVE AS AN INSIDER
For the cost of a croissant and cappuccino:
- Read never before published reflections, poems and prayers
- Ponder soul stirring questions
- Listen to The Beautiful Look podcast
- Watch vlogs recorded especially for patrons
- Print photos from my private collection
- Give input during my creative process
- Be the first to access new eBooks, printables, and downloads
- Take part in exclusive giveaways
- Join virtual field trips to inspiring sites in England
I love investing in people by creating content based on the truth and beauty of who God is and your partnership plays an important role in allowing that to happen ongoing.
WHAT IS A COMPANION?
Offered to a small group of ten people per year, signing up as a Companion on Patreon gives you access to ongoing coaching conversations with me six times a year. Plus a bevy of online resources tailored to your specific needs alongside all the Insider perks.
Whether you have been a faithful blog reader, a connected member of the Sabbath Society, an engaged follower on Instagram or a fan of my books, you might be asking, “Shelly, why do you need patrons?” After giving the majority of my work away for many years, my tribe has grown. Growth means more engagement, more ministry, mentoring and discipleship, and more time creating new content which has resulted in greater financial cost. As an ENFP on the Myers Briggs and an Enneagram 4w3, meaningful relationships matter to me most. Patreon allows me to continue connecting with readers in a meaningful way while maintaining creative productivity. Your partnership equals priceless input influencing future published work and provides a platform for conversations that add value to people’s lives. Join me as an Insider? From a messy beginning to the edited ending, let’s take a Beautiful Look and find perspective from the Beautiful One.
“In the experience of beauty we awaken and surrender in the same act. Beauty brings a sense of completion and sureness. Without any of the usual calculation, we can slip into the Beautiful with the same ease as we slip into the seamless embrace of water; something ancient within us already trusts that this embrace will hold us.” ~John O’Donohue
