Fear Not Campaign

Dear Friend,

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas! Whether feeling overwhelmed, facing a fear or wondering who is with you, remember this: Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” (John 14:27) 

Living the Life Model helps us replace fear motivation with love.  We don’t have to be afraid of anything, not even our feelings or suffering.  We wonder: will they still like me? What will she think of me? Will he be happy to be with me if I do this?  We are not alone. Jesus is with us even in the pain.  Jesus was not afraid of pain and faced his fears.  God the Father was with Him.  He is with us.   

We are trusting God to give us favor so we can build a sustainable legacy for the future.  We cannot do that without you.  We are so thankful for you.   

I am writing to ask you to participate in our Year End Giving Campaign.  We depend on the generous gifts and prayer covering of friends like you.  You have been changed by the Life Model.  Help us keep that legacy of transformation going! 

This year has been filled with both joy and pain.  Many of us continue to mourn the loss of our dear friend and trainer, Rev. Kitty Wilder.  It has been good to be together on this journey, and Family Gathering in September brought joy, but it has been both joy and grief.  So thankful we are not alone! 

Our team has been preparing for Life Model Works’ future.  Our goal is to Grow a Fearless People Who Love Like Jesus! Our focus is the same as it has always been:  

We create practical tools for “full-brained, whole-hearted” applications so churches can build authentic community and transform lives. 

By God’s grace and your generosity, we have…  

  • Launched a new website to spread the Life Model message far and wide 
  • Partnered with our fellow ministries who are spreading the Life Model 
  • Continued to add great content to JoyStream for more subscribers than ever 
  • Republished and sold hundreds of copies of Joy Starts Here (2021 revision).  
  • Helped 300 people in our Study Groups grow as whole-brained Christ followers  
  • Researched and written a new book unpacking the phenomenon of “enemy mode” 
  • Worked monthly to spread Life Model practices with believers in Asia online 

Life Model Works has never been better positioned to link brain science with the Bible to create simple, practical tools for churches and organizations to build authentic community and transform lives.   Fear’s power is lessened when we live daily in Immanuel’s presence, grow in relational brain skills, and build authentic multigenerational community! 

Your generous gifts have helped make this year significant for us: 

  • We presented great content in the “Life Model” Seminar, the “RARE Online Conference” and the “From Fear to Full Engagement” seminar 
  • We celebrated together at Family Gathering 2021 and learned a lot about “Women, Attachment and the Church.” 
  • We hosted online Life Model Study Groups to explore The Other Half of Church and other Life Model resources.    
  • We launched Life Model Consulting, a fee-based partnership with churches and organizations needing help implementing Life Model principles and practices.  
  • We began Leader’s Collectives, a ten-month engagement with Life Model executives, designed to help people transform their lives, homes, churches, and organizations.  

We want to keep walking through the doors God is opening. Will you partner with us so we can do so?  There is room for everyone to participate, either one time or even better, monthly:   

  • A $25 monthly gift helps us provide three free resources in 12 languages to spread the Life Model to the nations 
  • A $50 monthly gift ships 2 to 5 resources to a pastor/leader in a developing country 
  • A $100 monthly gift grants a scholarship for an individual to participate in a Life Model Study Group. 
  • A $250 monthly gift grants a Life Model Leaders’ Collective scholarship to a leader to learn how to apply the Life Model in their sphere of influence. 
  • A $500 monthly gift equips a small church or Christian organization with the skills to build authentic community and transform lives. 

Our year-end goal for 2021 is to have 200 people join us and give a total of $75,000 so we can continue equipping the church to look and act more like Jesus in 2022.  Would you join us? 

A year-end greeting from Dr. Jim Wilder: “I would like to thank everyone for their support for my family this year and the many contributions to Kitty’s legacy project. Too much of our Christian life resembles an enterprise rather than the loving attachments in God’s family that transform character. You will help us see that change.”
