About Mackenzie Chester

Hello, friends.

If you have clicked on this link (thank you!), you probably already know my name is Mackenzie Chester, and that I am a writer, artist, musician, homeschooler, podcaster, lifelong-journaler, mama of eight children, wife of a mad-scientist-musician (Randy Chester), and that I write a blog called The Sacred Everyday. It is on the pages of these posts that I share my search for beauty in the chaos and my longing to wake up to the miracle of an ordinary life. And my sincere hope is that, through The Sacred Everyday Blog and Podcast, you (and anyone else who stumbles onto my site) will find inspiration to do the same.

Writing blog posts and recording podcasts is my passion. I originally created this Patreon group as a way to pay for the costs of my web hosting, which I have honestly struggled to pay year after year. But I have been blown away at the generous support of so many friends who have joined me here and have provided a way for me to not only pay all of the bills associated with hosting my blog and my journaling course, but have also cheered me on and given me the moral support I needed to give myself permission to make the time to write.

Writing takes time. Not just the time where I am actually sitting down at the desk, but all the quiet spaces in my life where I am processing and putting words to ideas in the back of my mind. My Patrons are blessing me with time that I am paid to think, to write, and to share. I cannot fully express my gratitude that there are people who value my work enough to make this my reality. This inner circle of supporters are truly fueling my creative work. I am forever grateful.

Randy and I have a dream of being able to support our family by doing what we (and our children) do best: sharing our stories through writing, art, and music. Every partnership made here helps us get a little closer to that goal.

When you become a Patron, you will gain access to two-year's worth of posts, updates, photos, sneak-peeks of my personal journals, ideas in-progress, etc.  If you want a glimpse inside my creative process and my creative influences, this is the place to find them.  You will also have access to two online retreats, Grief and Beauty (November 2021) and Relentless Hope (December 2021). My desire is that these retreats will be a place where you can pause, take a long, slow, deep breath of hope, and be refreshed. 

You are also warmly invited to join The Journaling Circle, a kindred gathering for inspiration and conversation over tea (or coffee or hot chocolate, etc.!) and open journals.  We will be meeting on Zoom on the first and third Mondays in February, March, and April at 3:00 p.m. (EST) to venture into my course, Innermost Journaling: Mining the Depths of Your Sacred Everyday Life.  No previous experience necessary! If you're interested in learning more about journaling, want to jumpstart your creative life, or just longing for a little bit of fellowship, I'd love for you to come and join us.

To participate in this group class, simply join before February, and you will have access to the course, the zoom links, and all the group perks.  I am so excited about this gathering.

Sincere thanks for your interest in me, my family, and The Sacred Everyday. I have lots of ideas in the works for upcoming projects. (I just finished my book!!!  It is currently being considered for publishing.  Say a prayer for me that these words will make it where they are supposed to go, through whatever means they are meant to travel...)  I have ideas for videos, collaborations with Randy, projects with the kids, etc.  I am so excited about completing these and sharing them with you.  If you want to change my life and fuel my creative fire, I would be honored, thrilled, and overjoyed for you to consider supporting me here.

Love,

Mackenzie

I am starting a Patrons-only group session for my Innermost Journaling Course here on Patreon.  This will include all of the videos and content in the regular course (a $99 value) as well as access to members-only live content and the option to engage with other kindred souls who are going through the course together.  Help me meet this goal and join the group!
