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.

LSNED: 10th - 12th
I spent the day at home last Tuesday and had to remind myself that a quiet day at home can be productive or not . . . it's up to me! I decided to make it a productive day and moved my scrapbooks, photo albums and mini-albums to our new Expedit shelf unit in the front room, which I'll call our Memory Shelf.
Wednesday was the first day of the Bible study I'm leading this fall, and I learned there are nine ladies signed up for the Bible study from five different churches.
Thursday I enjoyed an inspiration day with Cheri. On our tour of Southfork Ranch I learned that several things had changed since Robbie and I had been there last year.
*Jock & Miss Ellie's room at Southfork was converted into the Mexican hotel room crime scene where JR was killed & the filming of those scenes took place inside Southfork. (This is significant because in the original Dallas series, the only filming done at Southfork was outside - all inside scenes were filmed in California.)
*Larry Hagman filmed his last scene the Tuesday before he died on Friday. (He was 81-years-old and passed away the day after Thanksgiving last year.)
*Elana's cottage is still set up and ready for filming to begin in October.
I'm so glad I prepped my journal cards and chose my divided page protectors before the month started because it is making it quick and easy to get these lessons recorded!
