This site, www.freechurchaccounting.com, averages over 30,000 visitors a month and is a treasure trove of valuable information on all things churches!
In November of 2014, her nonprofit accounting book titled Church Accounting: The How To Guide for Small & Growing Churches was published. Over 1200 copies have been sold less than a year later.
Now for the reason this site was built...
Many years ago I created easy to use
accounting workbooks and spreadsheets for my church secretary. She loved them and told several
other church secretaries and treasurers about them. They got hold of me
and asked if they could use them for their churches. They also wanted
additional pointers on setting up a good accounting system and other
church accounting issues.
God then laid on my heart that I could do that same thing on a larger scale by building this site.
Little did I know that it would grow as big as it is now and that through this site God would use me to help thousands of churches all over the world and in turn He would use the readers of this site to be a great blessing to me as well.
Many of you upheld my late husband and me in prayer and encouraging words as he battled cancer for 2 years. Then when Jesus took him home, your prayers, encouraging emails, and financial support of this site carried me through the darkest most difficult time in my life.
I will be forever grateful for all of you and pray this site can be as great of blessing for you as you are for me.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
