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.

The Waltons takes me back a bit....I haven't watched that for years!

a good month! Can't wait to see your shiny new car

Wow! That's a lot of movies watched. I loved The Waltons, but haven't thought of that series in a long time. I'm so glad to have our Christmas tree up and decorated, but I can't imagine getting four decorated.

Oh, I used to love The Waltons and look forward to it every week. A perfect bit of nostalgia for this time of year

Oh the Waltons, what memories that brings back. My latest throwback TV viewing is Murder She Wrote - which I came across on Netflix by accident while searching for George Clooney. Obviously I'm a novice at Netflix!

oh field trips with little ones, how fun! Looks like a glorious month and December will be even better :)

Golly, the Waltons takes me back! You fitted a lot in - we haven't even got a tree yet let alone decorated one :). I really like layout, with the sentence strips and the photos clustered like this.

I like the journaling strips with the grid of small photos - lovely. My parents love the Waltons and got the dvds last year for Christmas.
