About this project

Whether you’re striving to grow in your faith, yearning to love God more, or simply seeking a way to slow down and embrace what truly matters, this book will assist in providing yourself with the best possible gift ever - a closer relationship with God.

The Quest for Virtue is bursting with practical and straightforward advice for an attainable, Christ-centered life filled with more faith, simplicity, generosity, and far less complexity, all held together by a love for God. Containing all the personal joys and struggles that we all seem to have in common, it is written with a hope to challenge and inspire you. 

I started GrowInVirtue.com in 2014 with the purpose of sharing insights on living a simple, virtuous life built on faith. The responses have been unbelievable. Thousands of people have found hope in the messages behind Grow In Virtue, and now I want to share this message with a broader audience. I am Kickstarting my first book, Quest for Virtue: A Journey to Union with God, a book about obtaining a simple life built on faith, virtue and a sincere love for God. But I need your help! The book is written, but I need your support to get it printed.


How it Works...

This Kickstarter will support the cost of having the book professionally edited, designed, printed, and shipped out! I've set the goal for this Kickstarter at $6,000, the bare minimum we need to make all this happen. Every person who chooses one of the rewards in the right column is pledging to put down that money IF, AND ONLY IF, we get ALL the funds we need ($6,000 or more). If we don't reach $6,000, then nobody will be charged, and we won't be able to print the book.

If we do reach $6,000 or more (we can go past the limit and reach stretch goals described below), then the book will be published, printed, and all of the backers will get the rewards they pledged for.

Please help us reach that goal by choosing a reward level from the column to the right!

 The Kickstarter doesn’t stop when we reach our goal. If we can get beyond our goal to some special stretch goals, this is how YOU as our backers can benefit.

 If you have any questions or other stretch goal ideas, please feel free to comment or reach out! We'll do everything we can to answer your questions.

Risks and challenges

The beautiful part of this project is that the book is already written. The purpose of the Kickstarter is to get the funds for editing, design, printing, and shipping. If we succeed, there are very few risks, but it will take time to write any special chapters for backers at the "Golden Apple Tree" level as well as having the book edited professionally and reviewed by the beta readers at the "Towering Oak" level.

That said, I am committed to keeping all my backers updated as the process goes along. Everyone who backs this project will be updated regularly as the books go through the process of being edited, sent to the printers, and shipped out! You'll get the inside scoop the whole way along, and I'm excited to have your support!
