Christie Thomas is creating resources to help families cultivate authentic Christian faith

Hi! I'm Christie, the author of the Quinn book series (coming in 2019), blog posts over at www.christiethomaswriter.com, the Bedtime Devo Mama videos, and the HopeGrown Faith membership site. Everything I do is for the purpose of helping families cultivate authentic Christian faith at home. This whole endeavour has become such a huge part of our family's life that I have left my 12-year position as the Director of Children's Ministries at my church to focus more on this online ministry. 

I started this Patreon page because I wanted to offer a low-pressure way for others to support this work financially. While doing things online may start free, as I grow, there are continually more costs!

Plus, I hope that with your financial support with come prayer support, similar to how you would support me if I was on staff at your church. 

If you're not familiar with Patreon, here's how it works:
a) fans pay a monthly amount in exchange for certain content.
b) 90% of your monthly amount goes straight to me, 5% goes to Patreon for hosting, and about 5% goes to credit card fees. 

With the money I make on Patreon, I hope to grow this ministry to reach more families.
In order to do that, I need to 
a) pay for the recurring administrative costs associated with online ministry (email list, website hosting, tech support) and 
b) grow the HopeGrown Faith membership site, which is a service to young parents looking for hands-on help with cultivating authentic faith in their homes. That will involve Facebook ads as well as tech support. My goal is to make HopeGrown Faith self-sustaining by summer, 2019.

When you sign up as a patron, I pledge to send you every real book I publish (within the time of your patronage).

For example, Quinn's Promise Rock released in February 2019. All patrons received a free ADVANCE copy of the book. Patrons who sign up at the $20 level you will receive a free copy of Quinn's New Friend BEFORE it comes out on August 6, 2019. I hope to have more books to offer beyond 2019, but we'll start there!
