donate for impact

Why we accept donations
When we started “Why Be Merely Human” around 2006, it started as a draft book.  Ryan thought through the impact a book could have on this generation.  Realizing technology was so prevalent and attention such a precious commodity, he decided to direct his energy towards video content.

After over 5 years of having videos posted, by the end of 2014 we had 13 videos that received 93,000 views and an estimated 164,000 minutes watched.  Put back to back, that is over 110 days of people watching the videos!  Wow!  Praise God.  We never thought we’d have this kind of impact.  And yet, we still have a long way to go to reaching this generation in unique ways for Christ.

In 2015, Stacey felt God’s calling to start blogging.  Rather than make separate sites, we decided to combine forces as a husband and wife team to reach out and share what we have learned about living a holy life, pleasing to God.

Why do we have a donation page?  Ryan isn’t looking to quit his day job, and we aren’t trying to become famous.  But we do want to release encouragement for Christians and get the message out about salvation through belief in Christ!  Romans 10:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-9

Any donations we receive will be used to fund advertising (this is what helped us get to 113 days of content watched!) and other expenses to keep up this ministry.  We have several small expenses such as web hosting and the purchase of quality images.

Want to stretch your dollar?  This is a great way to do it!  For $1.00, we can get 50-100 views of our YouTube videos.  Our most popular YouTube video, “How to find peace“, is clicked by an astounding 30% of people who see the advertisement.  (Normally, < 1 % of people who see an advertisement click on it).  In addition, this video links to a compelling gospel message at the end so that people have a chance to learn about and accept Christ’s sacrifice for them on the cross!

Please partner with us in this ministry, even if that means $5.  $5 can go a long way!

Thank you,

Ryan and Stacey
