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.

Shimelle's Fourth Challenge

I knew exactly which photos I wanted to use when I read that Shimelle's fourth challenge for this Scrapbooking Weekend was to scrap with grey, yellow and one other colour of your choice. I like to pull colors from my photos when creating layouts, so I held my breath as I thumbed through my storage binders to find these three photos from different times. I remembered that one of them had pink, so I planned to use that as my other color. I was relieved to find a little bit of yellow in both of the other two photos, plus some gray in one.

Journaling reads: When we decided to include the teenage girls in our ladies' ministry mentoring fun, I knew I would volunteer to be matched with a teen. What I didn't realize is how much fun it would be to hang out with these beautiful Christian young ladies.
