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: Too Hot To Handle
I truly enjoyed all the family visits we had this summer, but I have to admit I have enjoyed hibernating inside with the air conditioner this last week, catching up on blog reading & online classes, scrapping a little, and getting back into my regular routine.
On another note: Have you been enjoying the recipes from the Lighten Up Blog Hop the past few months? On July 30, we'll be sharing breakfast recipes and we would love you to join in and share your favorite light breakfast recipe with us. Beverly is coordinating the hop, and you can read all the details in this post on her blog (scroll down to the bottom of the post for information on the hop). This month I'll be sharing how I've lighted up my Breakfast Quiche.
I also started a new healthy living book this week, however I'm really not impressed with it very much so far. The book is titled Women Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything. I picked it up at a garage sale a while back and it's been in my to-read pile. The title is misleading because it really doesn't have anything to do with God, it's simply the word the author uses because "it evokes a vast expanse that we cannot penetrate with our minds, although we can know it through silence or peotry or simply sensing what is always there." I'm planning to finish the book up this week and will share my review of it with you in next week's post.
