20180107_150943Hi!  I’m Alexis.

My husband, Seth, and I started Cistern & Grove so we could help great people become joyful givers! We spent the first 7 years of our marriage as starving students and paying off debts. We learned a lot about how to handle what little money we had. During that time we tried hard to become missionaries, but God had other plans for us. He was calling us to serve in the business world instead.

When Seth finished his doctorate and took a corporate position, I quit my job in social work to stay home with our first babies. In this season, our income and family grew simultaneously. Now we have four kids, two dogs, and we save and invest like crazy! And more than that, we LOVE giving! One habit we built early on was giving to causes that meant something to us and to people who had less than we did.

Today we help people build financial plans that unleash their generous spirits. We want to see you do well for yourself, so you can do good for others! We’re creating a movement of people who use money differently. Instead of spending extra cash to gain more and more things, we seek out places to give it away to people who need it more than we do. It may be only the beginning, but imagine the possibilities!
