Oh, hey there! It’s Jillian, the founder of The Joy List.

I’m currently writing a book called Unlonely Planet: How to Create Belonging in a World Without Religion. These are the resources that I’ve used in my research on loneliness, the decline of organized religion, and how to create spaces that foster connection. I hope that it’s useful for your gatherings.
