- Troubleshoot not receiving emails
This article will help you troubleshoot when a form is giving you trouble.
In the past I've had to ask you to sign up via a form, in order to receive downloads on my blog, even if already subscribed to a series that download is a part of. This process is being updated with new technology available to us. In time, you'll notice series emails you sign up to will invite you to start downloading directly from your emails without having to additionally request these via a form. Check your emails as you may not even need to request the download you're interested in, if you've received an email regarding the lesson which that download is associated with. Thank you for your patience while I actively update this method across the whole ministry in the coming months.
If you're having trouble with a download form...
If you need to figure out how to request a download, (rather than troubleshoot form errors), see the above related articles.
It's rare that people encounter issues with download forms but we've never run into a problem we can't fix.

My team and I are actively updating forms across our sites to make them simpler for you to use now better technology is available to us. Thank you for your patience as this is a several month project.

If you are seeing this error message, you may have cookies disabled in your browser, which would prevent my form from sending your request to me.
Try enabling cookies in your browser. If you're not sure how to do this, try searching google for "how to enable cookies on _________ browser", entering the name of your specific browser.
Once your browser cookies are enabled, you can try to request the download again. You can simply disable cookies again when finished and remember to turn them back on when requesting downloads in the future.

- What device you are using, (Microsoft PC Desktop, Macbook Air, Android Phone, iPhone, etc.)
