Hi, I'm Renee Tougas. I'm a fortysomething homeschool mom, writer, and homemaker; a spiritual thinker, wholehearted memoirist, and lifestyle blogger.

Maybe you landed here from my blog and if so, you might know that I've been blogging since 2004.

My blog is an exploration of the Great Ideas that animate our lives through the lens of my own particular life experiences with homeschooling, mothering, homemaking, marriage, adventure, and creativity.

The details change according to calendar and life season, but in a nutshell I share stories of personal growth in the context of family life, always seeking truth and beauty while carrying a healthy dose of skepticism for easy answers.

I write about the things that really matter (love, beauty, belonging, community, creativity, etc.) by writing about the the things that really matter (kids, family, home, vocation, etc.)

I am starting this Patreon community to support the ongoing work of this writing and to extend the conversation to the themes and issues in your life.

The intimate is the universal.

I write my blog as a witness to the human heart, my heart.

I want to host thoughtful conversations and create beautiful content that bears witness to your human heart. Your experience, your life, your relationships. 

In my fourteen years of blogging and freelance writing; in-person and online hospitality; traveling and moving through North America; meeting people and making connections, I've discovered that You fascinate Me. Your stories. Your heart.

And I want to explore how the Great Ideas are unearthed and lived in your life. In your marriage/partnership, in your parenting, in your vocation, in your community, in your home.

Your life speaks universal truth, wisdom, and beauty through the unique lens of you.

The Big & Beautiful Ideas are rooted in the everyday-ness of our living. We access the transcendent and meaningful through each other's lives. It's the gift of communication and the gift of relationship.

That's what this Patreon community is about. 

When you become a Patron of Renee Tougas you help support my on-going memoirist blog (content anyone can access, for free) but you also invest in creating exclusive new audio, written, and video content that explores the Great Ideas in the context of everyday lives, yours and mine. 

What kind of content will I be creating exclusively for the Renee Tougas Patreon community?

For Sure:
  • Podcast-like interviews with ordinary people living extraordinary lives, sharing the stories of personal growth and transformation at the edge of their own life experience.
  • Private Patreon community conversation and content around those interviews. 
Probably:
  • Complementary content to regular posts at my blog. Short original videos, inspiring Big & Beautiful Ideas quotes, behind-the-scenes stuff, and reading lists are a few ideas floating around.
Future Possibilities: (at a second-tier level support)
  • Video or audio teaching with more in-depth exploration of Renee Tougas blog topics, according to patron interest. A few possible ideas: self-directed homeschooling & lifelong-learning, navigating a midlife crisis and life transformation, community/belonging/identity in a mobile and post-modern society, small space living, minimalist traveling and adventures, contemplative spiritual practices, practical homemaking, supporting anxiety and mental health, and more.
  • In-depth exploration of the Patreon community interviews (see For Sure). Subjects TBD.
  • Community calls/webinars.
  • Real-life meet-ups.
  • Partnerships with other creators and thinkers to provide quality, helpful, and inspiring support for living and learning from the Big & Beautiful Ideas in your own life.

Tiers

$5 or more per month
  • Once/month podcast-style interviews, diving into the Big & Beautiful Ideas from the extraordinary lives of ordinary people like you. 
  • access to Patron-only chats and connection.
