I’m not a designer. That’s putting it mildly by the way. My skills consist of knowing what I want and knowing when to ask for help.
That doesn’t mean I don’t recognize a good design though. I don’t pretend to know more than designers (did you catch this hilarious post with posters from a web designers about stuff his clients tell him?), but I do have a strong opinion on what’s most important about web design.

I love Steffany Gretzinger’s voice.
The name Gretzinger is as unique and distinct as Steffany’s voice.
Gretzinger is not a strange name (or face) to fans of Bethel Music, or the congregation at Bethel Church in Redding, CA. The singer has been part of the Bethel Music family for a long while so she isn’t exactly ’new’ in the Christian music scene.
