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.

2009 was the year my Daddy retired and my parents moved closer to us. I'd already documented the many trips they made searching for a new home and the story of the home they were leaving, so I captured the story of finding their new home in this 8 1/2 x 11 layout.
I documented our fall trip to Tennessee with several layouts, including this two page spread showcasing photos of the luxury cabin we enjoyed. I used a few pieces of memorabilia including a map of the resort and pieces cut from a postcard.
I used some distressed Tim Holtz papers to display photos of our Christmas trees. that year.
