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: 13th - 18th
I signed up for the BPC Art+Science workshop and was not surprised when the pre-class creativity test showed that I am left-brained!
During a lovely relaxing Saturday at home, I realized that 1,000-pieces puzzles are becoming easier for us and can be put together in a few hours, so it's time to buy some puzzles with more pieces!
And I was delighted to learn that Shimelle created a Pinterest board for all the Glitter Girl episodes - what a great resource to scroll through when looking for inspiration!
In the spirit of learning and trying new things, I tried a new recipe - Tennessee white chili (definitely a keeper).
As I was preparing to head out of town for a crop, I took time to give myself a manicure & pedicure and it occurred to me that friends not only know your favorite color, they give you nail polish in that color.
And finally I lucked out when I discovered that the Project Life album I picked up at Michaels was 60% off the day I stopped in to find a new album for my Faith Walk layouts.
I haven't completed any of my lessons passed the 18th, however I am continuing to record my daily activities and will hopefully find time this weekend to look back over those notes to discover the lessons in each day. How is your September coming along? Have you learned anything new lately?
