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.

Season of Giving & Upcoming Giveaways

I love the Christmas season: all the fun events and get-togethers with family and friends, all the cooking and baking, all the holiday movies, all the traditions and customs. I especially love the reminder that the greatest gift of all (Jesus Christ) was given to us on the first Christmas. Because of this gift and God's blessings in our lives, we truly enjoy this Season of Giving - making, buying, wrapping and giving gifts . . .

. . . and this year I'm extending that attitude of giving to my blog. I have a giveaway planned for each of the next three Sundays - some unique scrapping supplies, a personalized gift, and something to get you thinking about the stories you haven't yet recorded on a layout. I'll post the giveaway on Sunday and draw a random winner the following Wednesday. And as always, there will be a new book to pass sometime around the middle of the month.

For now, there's still time to get in the draw for November's Pass the Book. Click here to leave a comment to be the next recipient of Courtney Walsh's Scrapbooking Your Faith.
