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.

I've rarely ever met a cookie I didn't like, however there is one ingredient that makes any cookie perfect (in my opinion, of course) - CHOCOLATE CHIPS. So it follow that many of my favorite recipes contain chocolate chips, like this twist on the traditional oatmeal-raisin cookie. It's just amazing how switching the raisins for chocolate chips improves the taste! :>)
