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.

Cards for Sunshine Mail
I created some sample cards with the supplies provided by the group hosting the retreat - First Presbysterian Church in Allen, Texas.
During the retreat, the 28 ladies and teen girls in attendance spent time creating cards, and I packaged up and sent 62 cards to Sunshine Mail! All the ladies and girls joined in to create cards and seemed to really enjoy the creative time. I was truly impressed with their productivity and know that the children who receive these cards will be blessed.
