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.

I started Christmas dinner prep today - the turkey and ham are thawed, eggs (for deviled eggs) are boiled, pecan pie is baked, and cornbread is ready to be made into dressing. Robbie braved the grocery store to pick up a few items. We watched the Little House on the Prairie episode of Christmas at Plum Creek and the 1947 black and white version of Miracle on 34th Street. We finished the Saturday Evening Post Santa puzzle and started a new one of the nativity scene. I spent the evening working on my December mini-album and listening to the Papperclipping Roundtable.
