You are invited to encounter the spiritual formation book I wrote called The Wild Land Within (my first book with Broadleaf Books)
🎁 ❤️ 
Just click the book or google search the title to get one, or get a few for a book club.
I’m happy to meet up with your group to say “hello”, answer your questions, and hear your thoughts.

• You can find out about my publisher Broadleaf Books here


⭐️What is a Patron? Here are the DETAILS:

Patron supporters chip-in a bit each month to help me offset my expenses so I can continue creating. Supporting this way (at $5 +) entitles you to many posts, perks, and goodies that unlock once you begin.

Want to come along side me with support regularly?
This kind of help makes a big difference. It is with great appreciation that I create for my patrons as my “inner circle”.

• Remember, Patron supporters ALSO get ALL ACCESS to the Substack (paid) extras!

OR make a one-time contribution at PayPal.me/lisacolondelay


• It’s listeners like you make this work possible. 

You can help out by sharing the program and rating/reviewing it on iTunes or other outlets.
Thank you very much.
