About Me

Greetings! Thank you for visiting.

A little bit about me:  I am a wife, a mom of two wonderful boys, an architect, and a person who just never stops. I am working on that, but in the meantime… this book has truly been a special project!

I grew up in a construction family, hearing the victories and the pain points of the industry every day. At 20 years old, I felt a strong calling to the design side. After working for amazing design companies, I was incredibly fortunate to share a space in my family’s construction office. As our design company was starting pretty organically through simple requests for help from churches, we began to weave together strategies to quickly respond to the needs of churches in every phase of growth. We paid close attention to the questions church leaders asked over and over, and the explanations which seemed to serve the churches best. Over the following years, we focused our design and planning talents on churches large and small. Having spent years on most of these projects facing the everyday challenges of budget-conscious churches, we are ready to share what we know.

I hope you will read Church Buildings. I hope you will ask the hard questions, make notes, fold the pages, tag the index. I hope you will choose to be intentional about your church’s growth.

Diligent, informed, wholehearted planning yields amazing results for a ministry. We are always here in our little shop downtown if we can help.
