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

I’m also the author of a book called Unlonely Planet. These are the resources that I used in my research on loneliness, the decline of organized religion in America, and how to create spaces that foster connection. I hope that it’s useful for your gatherings!

Have something that you’d like to add to this, or a suggestion of how to make it more useful? Email I look forward to hearing from you!
