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.

January Pass the Book - The Writing Life
The book is a quick read and an interesting perspective on the life of a writer. I'm not sure it necessarily encouraged me to write a book as I don't believe I could be holed up in one room with the blind drawn (to avoid distractions) for days and weeks and months on end!
If you're new to Pass the Book:Year Two, you can find all the details here. To be in the draw for The Writing Life, please leave me a comment telling me the last place you sat down to write. For me, I typically write these days while sitting at the computer, however on our recent cruise I enjoyed sitting on our private balcony with a good old-fashioned pen writing away in my handmade journal. (I'll draw a name & post the first recipient of this book on Wednesday.)
**Rebekah is ready to pass on December's book, The Girls from Ames: A Story of Women and a Forty-Year Friendship. Click here to be in on the draw for that book.**
