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.

Healthy Living Weekly Post: Wellness Journey & 2011 Goals

Lisa Cohen's Wellness Jouney at Big Picture Classes
The Wellness Journey workshop at BPC began last week. My favorite part of this workshop is the daily check-in on the message boards. I enjoy reading what others have done toward their exercise and healthy eating goals each day, and it inspires me to get moving and eat right so that I will have something to report. I am just getting back into my exercise routine this week after a little bit of derailment during the holidays.

There is also a mini-album project in the workshop, however I am just creating a few scrappy pages that will reside in my Healthy Living Notebook. I spent this week updating my notebook and moving all the pages into a larger 3-ring binder.


Here's a look at the pages I have so far, some of which were completed during the workshop last year. These are quick pages I completed by printing the templates from the workshop and adding in my journaling.






This next layout is a digital layout using one of the tempates provided with the workshop. I used photos from our first trip to the Dallas Farmer's Market several months ago. This page resides in my Places We've Been LOM album.

This final layout summarizes my healthy living goals for 2011 and beyond.

As an alum in this class, I did all those pages in 6x6 last year. I just added them as is to the front of my 8.5x11 binder. But I'm trying to keep up with the daily check-in!

Hoping this goes really well for you ... Very inspiring goals and your pages are pretty enough to eat in themselves!

Great look to your journal - hope the class meets your needs! My wellness journey this year is going back to Weight Watchers. So far I really like their new program and it's working!
