Welcome! I'm Melissa Gross, a dynamic and interactive teacher and speaker called to lead and encourage Christian women in their walk with the Lord through classes, workshops and retreats incorporating Bible study, devotionals, illustrated Bible journaling, paper crafting and mixed media projects that merge faith and art bringing God’s Word to life so you can find renewed excitement to dive into the Word, use your creative gifts, and apply the Truth as you draw closer to the Lord and serve Him in your everyday life. This site is where I share my everyday adventures, Bible Journaling pages, scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, and other crafty projects, as well as information on my upcoming workshops and events. I also post photos, ramble about books I'm reading, stuff I'm organizing, and other FUN bits & pieces of my wonderful life.

2000 piece puzzle, Time to Ride, Made by Brenda

Robbie and I finished our first 2000 piece puzzle today. We've been working on it since the beginning of March and had some help along the way from Natashia, Daddy and Sandra. The puzzle was made by Buffalo Games and is a scene of Times Square in New York. We had to have both leaves in our big dining room table to lay out all the pieces!

I also got inspired and made two scrapbook pages today. Both of these layouts were inspired by layouts in the Ultimate Guide to Scrapbooking book that I'm currently reading. They are both from 2008 since I just recently got all my digital pictures from 2008 printed. This first one shows us on our Harley (which we have since sold) and our good friends Dick and Iris on their scooter. They recently upgraded to a much larger machine - a spyder!

This next page shows us with the lap quilts that my sister Brenda made for us and a beautiful wall hanging that she quilted for our living room.
