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.

November Familyx12 Blog Hop

It seems like the month of October flew by and here we are just weeks away from Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season. My family photo for October is the one of the two of us at one of the Texas Rangers playoff games. It was a fun evening spent with friends, watching the Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays on October 1st.

We spent many evenings throughout October watching the Rangers continue through the playoffs and were disappointed to see them lose in Game 7 of the World Series.

Two more months to go and I will have captured a family photo each month this year! My plan is to use all 12 photos on a digital layout at the end of the year.

I'm so glad Margie has organized this blog hop each month to help keep us motivated to take at least one family photo every month. Be sure to check out her blog for a list of all this month's participants.

I'm so glad you want to particpate. If it weren't for you guys, I wouldn't remember either. I love your photo and what an exciting memory. I can't wait to see your page at the end of the year with all of your photos. I might have to do the same thing.
