Would You Consider Supporting My Work As a Patron?

Would You Consider Supporting Me as a Patron

I have been blogging at Challies.com on a daily basis for over 17 years now. That long commitment has allowed me to write thousands of articles and hundreds of book reviews while also sending millions of visitors to other sites through the daily A La Carte feature. Of course I’ve also written a number of books and filmed quite a number of videos, though through it all the blog has remained the “main thing.” Over the past few years much of the site’s content has also been translated to Spanish—a very encouraging development.

One of my great desires through this time has been to freely give away as much as possible. I intend for it to always remain entirely free for all who visit. While for obvious reasons this can’t happen when it comes to books, I’ve made it my goal to ensure that everything else has been freely and widely distributed. This has been possible largely because of advertisers. Yet as time goes on and the online advertising market shifts, I’m finding it just a little bit more difficult to line up those advertisers week after week.

This is where patrons come in through the service called Patreon. Patreon provides a means of linking content producers (like me) with supporters (like you). I believe this is key to a sustainable path into the future for sites like mine.

To that end, I would like to ask those who regularly read this site to prayerfully consider supporting me by becoming a patron. By supporting me with even a very modest a monthly gift, you will be able to be part of this ongoing work. Funds donated will be used to support my family and to help create great content or to otherwise improve, support, and enhance Challies.com. In one way or another they will all be used to allow me to continue to do what I have been doing for these past 17 years.

Please understand that I intend for Challies.com to always remain entirely free. In fact, patrons help ensure that it always remains that way.

Thank you for considering becoming a patron of Challies.com. Your support means so much to me.

(I’m also sometimes asked about one-time gifts. If that is of interest to you, they can be forwarded by check to the mailing address here or to PayPal.)

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents

    While today we tend to associate step-parents with divorce, in previous centuries they were almost exclusively associated with death and with either widow- or widowerhood. In an era in which lifespans were shorter and, therefore, a greater number of parents died while their children were still young, there was a distinct and honored role for…

    The Glorious End without the Difficult Means

    Just as Olympic athletes cannot realistically expect to win a gold medal unless they strictly discipline themselves toward victory, Christians cannot hope to prevail in the Christian life unless they take a serious, disciplined approach to it. Yet lurking in the background is always the temptation to hope that we can have the result of…
