About Dan R. Crouch
Joined November 2006
I have been a member of WA for over six years now and have done nothing with it until recently. I had been exploring all kinds of internet training and had not found anything that has brought substantial income. However, I have learned and gained confidence that I did not have before. So I have come back with a determination to make a committment to make the most I possibly can from my relationship with WA and all of you who are here.

My career has been as a pastor and I have been pastoring churches for the past 44 years. I have been blessed by my work and the people that I have been around and my faith is a very important part of my life. It has sustained me through the good and the difficult times.

I want to earn a fulltime living from IM so that I can spend the latter years of my life writing and helping others find happiness in their lives. I feel my many experiences over the years of pastoral ministry can be an encouragement to others as I have the opportunity to free my time and pursue some inner desires that I have.

I have purchased the accredited courses and am now working on lesson one of the first package. I decided I need to give the same committment to my online career as I have to my many years of service to the church.

I look forward to meeting many of you in the space here and in the forum and other areas of WA.

The pic of the lady in blue is my wife of 44 years. Her name is Nancy.

Keep looking up!

Hello Precious Pastor Dan. I cannot begin to express how happy I am to connect with you and follow together in our journey of learning with Wealthy Affiliate.

I do not pretend to have a perfect understanding of how God connects people and then prospers them so that the purpose and gifting inside them can explode into something that grows to spread the kingdom of God; but, I do know that both you and I are here for a purpose and that purpose is to help others prosper as they walk out their giftings.

I am so thankful for the platform Kyle and Carson have created along with such a diverse community of supportive people.

Please let me know how I can help you in the pursuit of the growth of your online business to support your calling.

-Rebecca

I noticed you live in AZ. I lived in Payson for 5 years and loved it. We moved to Idaho about ten years ago because of my health and the need to be near family. However, the problem turned out to be more with my wife who has a full-time caregiver. John

Hi, John, have been following your great stuff on WA. We love north Central Arizona. Payson is lovely and we like to visit there when we can. I am sorry to hear of your wifes health problems. I will remember you both in my prayers. Dan

Thanks for the follow, Pastor Dan! I've only been here a short time, but I am so happy I found WA. Welcome back. My niche is related to retirement and making it fulfilling. Maybe you will come help me explain why our spiritual walk is so vital to enjoying retirement! I look forward to seeing you grow in your internet marketing career. You and your lovely wife deserve only the best!

Hi there,
Thanks for sharing your story. My wife's father is a pastor, so she grew up in the church. We are both Christians and try and live our life to glorify God.
I work full time now, while she stays home with our two babies. She is taking two online college classes now and will start full time in January (she has approx 90 credits). We DO NOT want a daycare to raise our kids, so while she is going to school full time, I'll quit my job and stay home and raise the two kids for the two years it takes her to get her degree.
For a year I've been searching for a way to make money at home. This is my last shot....and so far, seems like the best.
I'm nervous about joining hte premium, as we are trying to save EVERY penny possible to assure we can make it through her two years of school without us having a steady income (and me having health insurance). So $300 might not seem like a lot to spend - we have to think about that amount in terms of us not having a job for two years.
You truly believe that with hard work and dedication, somebody could make a living off of this concept and with WA's help?

Hi Dan, thanks for the follow and for taking the time to reply to my blog post! I like your goals and mine are similar -- earning a Ft income to help bring our family to financial freedom and to be able to bless others with time and resources. I'm a worship leader (and my husband was an assistant pastor when we got married nearly 20 years ago, but is now in computer software). Have a wonderful day and I look forward to following your progress!

Hi, Dan.

I just wanted to reach out and thank you for the follow.
I'm still getting the hang of this system, and learning how to communicate and chat and stuff. So far I've found that reaching out for support really works to ease the overwhelm and clarify the lessons.

So, I'm glad to have you in my network, and to be a part of yours.

Thanks,

~ Scott

Hello, Dan!

I'm curious - - - what denomination or type of church did you pastor? Assuming it was a Christian church, how do you define the word "Christian"?

Glad to see you're getting re-involved with WA. I'm essentially just getting started,but if you have any questions, please ask and I'll do my best to help.

I wish you much success in WA!

Well I am least aware of the churches but have visited many during my stay in Georgia.
My faith in almighty further strenghtened I strongly believe that visiting all religious places enhances ur piece of mind. I am surprisedwhen I clicked ur site the site advisor's advice came in that your site is dangerous to visit. Kindly c to it and do the corrective measures immediately.

I have been away for the last 10 days due to illness in our family. We dropped everything and made a trip from our home in Arizona to Texas. My Wife's sister has been very ill with the diagnosis being a brain tumor. I am now home so I can get back to work. I took my laptop and my Verizon internet hook up with me but the connection in Dallas was so bad that I really couldn't do much. Keep looking up! Dan

Hi dan. Thanks for the note! I appreciate that. If there is one thing I've learned about IM it's that persistence is the key. I am hoping I can keep focused and perservere through the learning curve. To me it's the hardest part since I am already aware of my own weaknesses (writing being on top of that list!). Give me a calculus or physics problem and I'll solve it in a minute. Ask me to write a few sentences about something? Well, I'd have a better chance at a trans-Atlantic flight with home made wings! lol Anyhow, I wish you, and everyone else here the best of luck. I do have some pertinent skills so if there is EVER anything I can do to help, please feel free to ask! I now know for sure that this is a team sport despite individual agendas.

By the way, we are a family of faith. It's kind of the family "business" as my wife's grandfather is the pastor, my mmother-in-law runs the schools at church etc. It's a huge component in our lives. I also hope to get better acquainted, and look forward to some more chatting! take care.

John

Hi Dan, I know you have perseverance because you have been in the ministry for 41 years. You certainly can succeed at IM. You just need to find the niche that appeals to your ideals and then it will be second nature.

If we eat, sleep and work full time in any field particularly that of our Lord, it is hard to think or do anything else. We need to be sold out to the Lord as Christians but we need to be diverse humans as well. The wife and I worked with youth and a number of teaching ministries in the church over the years. Personally, I struggled with how much time I should devote to the ministry, my family, hobbies and my regular 9 to 5 job. Took me awhile but found balance and that is key. After 41 years being a Pastor I hope you have learned that balance. I have seen and worked under some who still don't have it and they are quite stressed most days.

I believe in your blog you mentioned something about a professional student who lacked application. I have been a victim of that in the past on the "flip side". I would learn just enough to be dangerous about a business and take off like a bull a china shop. We need to be well studied in any field. But, without application, trial and error in the IM area we just can't grow. Get out there and dabble with your IM knowledge, use a pen name while you practice if that will make you less self conscious. God Bless, Chris

Hey Chris, Thank you for your words of encouragement. I think like you I have come full circle and am ready to slow down and make the committment to stick with the learning process until it bares fruit. I am glad to say that as a norm my life is free from stress as God has become my peace. I will look forward to sharing and learning from your success as a marketer. Thank you again for your response, Dan
