Option 3: Make a tax-deductible financial contribution at buymeacoffee.com. For the price of a cup of coffee, you can help us give Living Water to those who are spiritually thirsty. Donations gifted through this site are set at $5 increments and start at only $5. If you wish to donate more that $5, just choose how many cups of virtual coffee you wish to contribute. In other words, a cup of coffee at your local barista can cost you about $5. So if you wanted to contribute $15 to this ministry, you would be contributing at the amount equivalent to 3 cups of coffee, so you’d select 3 cups of virtual coffee.
Note: No cups of coffee are actually purchased.
November Fundraising challenge: How many cups of coffee do you drink in a day? Would you consider donating at that amount? So if you typically drink 4 cups a day, would you consider contributing at 4 cups of virtual coffee – the equivalency of $20?

BOOKING NOW to be a host site for the NEW God, Love & Marshmallow Wars Book Tour & Couples Conference:
This event helps couples understand why the daily activities found in the book will equip them to build a stronger marriage and the book provides them with 365 intentional activities to take what they learn at the event and apply it on a daily basis. Through the event, couples will discover the Biblical “why” behind the categories of activities found in the book and the “how” these activities are important to building a stronger marriage. Focus points of the event includes :
- How memorizing scripture together and studying God’s Word together as they study, meditate and apply scriptures related to marriage and life issues will help them develop marriages that honor God.
- Why utilizing fun conversation starters that spark meaningful conversations will keep interest alive as they continually learn new things about each other.
- Why keeping romance alive is essential to intimacy and connectivity.
- How making memories and working together builds relationship investment bonds and how these investment bonds can become the knots that keeps them together through the tough times.
- How they can understand what they are or are not contributing to the marriage as well as how they might be contributing to problems or potential problems within the relationship through the use of targeted, intentional personal reflections
- Why it is important that couples never stop dating and how group dates with Christian friends can be both an encouragement and accountability to their own relationship.
During the event, couples will be given an activity from each focus point to do together, making this event an interactive, fun, and engaging event with practical, hands-on learning. Unlike other couple events that are over when the event ends, couples who attend the GLMW event will be able to apply what they learn when utilizing the book on a daily basis for a year. Since the book is not dated, couples are able to reuse the activities year after year to continue being intentional in strengthening their relationship with each other and with God as they strive to live out God’s design for marriage every day.
Julia will donate half of all proceeds for all GLMW events booked prior to December 31 to this ministry. Don’t wait. Book today.
