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: A Quick Update

Just a quick post this week to say that getting up at near the same time each morning is making a huge difference. I've ridden the stationary bike five times this week, most days in the mornings. My goal for March is to ride the stationary bike (or go for a walk now that the weather is prettier) for 30 minutes at least five times a week and add back in two sessions of strength training. I've added these sessions to my March calendar and feel good about staying on track now that I'm back into some routines.

The Wellness Journey Workshop finished up this past week with a look at some of Lisa Cohen's favorite fitness tools, so next Friday I'll be sharing some of my favorites and how they've helped keep me motivated at times. Hope y'all have a fun and healthy weekend!

yay for your goals! after two weeks of excuses, I got up and got on the treadmill this morning, and felt so good, I'm going to do it again tomorrow!

I'd love to see what fitness tools you've used, I can't seem to find anything suitable, maybe your tools can help me, too!
