Helping Faith 2.0

I have been asked by a couple of people recently what they can do to help me personally and Faith 2.0. I have a few thoughts and ideas that you could all do if you'd like to be a part of the ministry that is changing people's lives by helping them re-examine what they really believe. First, you can donate to the ministry. Faith 2.0 is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, so you're donations are tax deductible. Any donation above $100 will get you a signed copy of my new book and a subscription to all the .mp3 files on the website.

Second, you can buy a copy of the new book, Hearts and Minds: Raising Your Child with a Christian View of the World, from our online store. By purchasing from us, rather than your local bookstore, the money goes directly to Faith 2.0. With Christmas coming up, several people have already purchased copies to give as presents.

Third, you can bring me in to speak at your church -- perhaps to conduct a parenting seminar based on the material in the parenting book. A few years ago I made the decision to do no travel between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I do not regret that choice one bit. It does, however, make it a little difficult to pay all the bills on time! The more bookings I can get scheduled for the new year, the easier it will be to honor my commitment to my family during the holidays.

Finally, you can help create a positive buzz about the new book by doing simple things. For example, you could visit a website like and write a review of the book. You can ask your local Christian bookstore if they have the book in stock. You could talk to other parents about using the book in a small group study.

It would be inconsiderate of me to fail to thank those of you who have already made contributions. It is because of your generosity and support that I am able to do what I do. I can provide for my family, meet my financial obligations and help people better understand how to live the life God has called them to live. Without your help, none of this would be possible.
