Jonas Ellison is creating joy & freedom through spiritual self-helplessness
22

patrons

For almost four years now, I’ve kept a daily(ish) blog. What started as a personal creative outlet sharing my whimsical ramblings about life, spirituality, creativity, and faith has blossomed into one of the top single-author blogs on medium.com as well as my life’s purpose (you can read more about me and my story here if you’re not familiar). 

And so, here I am, at a precipice. After 1400+ free blog posts, I want to go deeper into this work to better serve you long into the future. Life is short and it’s time for me to start to turn this vocational ship towards the work I love the most - sharing my personal spiritual confessions, testaments, and revelations so as to help others deepen into their faith. As I go through the discernment process to enter the seminary at ye ripe olde age of 40, I'll be brimming with things to share with you that I gather from my journey.

Patreon gives you a way to support my work at whatever level you can to keep my butt in the chair doing what I do best. As a freelance creator, your support allows me to concentrate on creating lots more content without having to worry about paying my bills. Instead of money going to ad tech companies who want to monetize your attention spans, this gives you a direct connection to me, my livelihood, and my life. But the best thing is it puts you in a core group of people who will influence my work the most going forward. Whatever your reasons, I'm eternally grateful.

My goal is to fill this space with seminars, podcasts, book studies, discussion forums, reflections, hangouts, workshops, and more. I hope to be able to dedicate myself to this work full-time sooner than later. It’s only through your patronage that I can make this a reality.

Godspeed,
Jonas
