The long and short of it is I want to make making music, writing and vlogging about God, critical thinking, life, the universe and everything what I do for a living. Patreon seems to be the most straightforward way to achieve that goal. The other immediate factor is that I’m a father, now.

My name is Ben. I stumbled upon Patreon. Immediately got stoked about the idea that I could put the part of life that I’m most passionate about to work. That I could provide for my family this way is mindboggling and we’ll have to wait and see what gravity it comes with but I feel like God’s signed off on it.

I’m writing music. I’m writing blogs. You know, I’m even writing theological essays. Maybe a book or two. This content will come out either way. God said jump, so we leapt. You can sow into this process with me to help me bring ideas to life.

Patreon is built to work like an online tip jar (or perhaps more the online busking case). Taking some of the ideology of connecting fans or patrons to the artists and creators they want to support from Kickstarter, Patreon is built from the ground up to support the ways that the creative marketplace is changing. For instance, no one wants to pay for cable anymore. But if you could just support the channels you like, why wouldn’t you? Similarly, Patreon has equipped independent artist and creators to be more creative and less corporate.

By electing to “tip” an artist based on either a one time, periodic or per-release basis, patrons can help make it functional for guys like me to be creative full-time and still feed our families! Tipping will give you access to early releases of new content, the ability to communicate directly with me and help decide what subjects to tackle in verse or video. You can also not tip anything and just enjoy content as it is released to a wider audience.

Relationship is a part of why this could work. I will constantly be trying to up my game to make sure you know you’re not simply a dollar sign. All this creative stuff, it’s for you. Without you reading it and digesting it, there not much a point to making it. God and I talk, I don’t need to write about complex (or simple) spiritual matters too often. Yet, it seems like at least a part of what I’m supposed to do is suggest ideas that have the potential to clear some muddy, logical and theological waters.

Thanks for the likes on Facebook, the shares, well wishes, critiques and support. Thanks are also due just as much if not more so for letting these blurbs and stories into the conversations had in bedrooms, offices and coffee shops. That I can be a part of any honest pondering blesses me more than I can say.

Love and warmth,
Ben Wamberg

"...killing is bad, m'kay?"
    - J. Mackey, School Guidance professional, South Park Elementary
And it really is, isn't it? Killing yourself, your spouse, the mood, the emperor's groove, all bad. However cathartic it may seem as tempers rise and mind-ninja'n ensues, there is no excuse for committing felonies in our great state of A-Murica. Allow my lovely partner in (non-felony related) crime, Brittany, and myself to walk through the common sense, the no-nonsense, behind not destroying one another over faults or broken communication. Join us as we tackle more important issues, like who ate the last Hungry Man dinner, who farted, and the age-old doozy, was that really a headache?

But in all seriousness,

Brittany and I get a lot of questions about problem solving and communication in relationships, romantic and otherwise. We'd like to tackle the topic in a vlog series aimed at demystifying the subject and provide basic tools and patterns for developing healthy and methods of communication with your significant others, friends and so on.
