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.

Liebster Award & Friends

I was surprised and honored to read Alison's post last week awarding me the Liebster Blog Award! And I can totally relate when she writes about how difficult it is to pass on these awards because there are so many fabulous blogs out there these days. The goal of this award is to bring attention to blogs with less than 200 followers. Rather than try to choose five blogs to pass this award on to, I try to highlight inspiring blogs by linking to them and giving credit for the inspiration I receive in blogland. Be sure to watch for those links & click on over for inspiring ideas!

Here's a little something crafty inspired by the latest LOM Community challenges to scrap about friends. I combined photos from various get-togethers over the past four years of our dear friends the Stewarts. I added a couple of quote stickers and patterned paper strips and am very pleased with how it turned out.
FRIEND: A person whom one knows, likes and trusts.
It takes a long time to grow an old friend.
