The Lord says we have not because we ask not…
so we’re just putting this out there.
Rebekah, Cathryn and I are very excited about Mama Bear, but it has been quite an undertaking to get the website up, and learn how to podcast. So if there is anyone out there who has any expertise in the following, it would be most welcome:
1) Web e-commerce: we would like to get a Mama Bear Apologetics store up so that we can sell books, t-shirts, and any other Mama Bear swag that we can think of!
2) Webmaster – the website is very basic, and there several things we would love to do with it (see request #1). However, we do not have the expertise.
3) Marketing/Promotions – If you love what Mama Bear is doing and have a background in marketing/promotions (and particularly social media) and would like to contribute your time and expertise, we will happily accept your offer!
4) Content – We don’t just want to get OUR message out. We want to empower you ladies! If you are a busy mom, and don’t want to manage your own website, but still have something to say, we want to hear it! Email Hillary at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if your idea would be a good fit.
Rebekah, Cathryn and I are provided in our personal lives, but what we are short on is time – and there are a lot of time-suckers in maintaining a website. We cannot get content (blogs and podcasts) up as quickly as we would like because of the sheer amount of time it takes to format, edit, upload, and promote each new item. (This takes a lot more time than you would think, especially for podcasts.) It would be a dream come true to outsource the technical aspects of the website to a qualified individual so that we can focus on providing relevant and timely content for women struggling to address tough questions with their kids.
The biggest blessing would be to have donors who could commit to any small amount on a monthly basis – 100 people giving $10 a month would allow us to outsource a lot of the web maintenance issues that eat up most of our time. If you would be willing to partner financially with Mama Bear, please visit our donate page for information on how you can give a one-time or monthly gift.
All donations are tax deductible, and are under the umbrella of Ratio Christi Ministries, an amazing 501c3 apologetics ministry aimed at providing answers to the tough questions on the college campus.
— As Mama Bear grows, for the Lord to give us the personnel and financial resources to grow with it.
— More Mama Bears! We want this to be a collaborative effort by women who are passionate about moms being equipped in apologetics.
— Protection against spiritual attack that inevitably comes whenever you enter public ministry.
— For God to begin moving in women in apologetics – women who understand that intellectual attack that our kids are facing on a regular basis and who are willing to rise up, band together, and promote an intelligent Christian faith.
— Time and Focus – Rebekah is a full time mom, Cathryn just took on a new teaching job, and Hillary is a working, grad student. Pray that the Lord would continue to inspire us and strengthen us.
— Partners in ministry – please pray that the Lord would bring individuals into our lives that are passionate about moms and apologetics and who have skills that we don’t – specifically in web maintenance, app creation, administration, web conferencing, and audio/video production.
— Apologetics partner for me (Hillary) in Pella, IA. I left my apologetics friends and my ministry partner Rebekah back in Dallas. Please pray that God would provide for me another woman who shares my passion and wants to serve here, in our hometown, equipping women and moms.
