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: 7th - 9th

I'm using 12x12 divided page protectors for my LSNED lessons this year, with two 4x6 sections for each day - one for the lesson that I'm adding to my pre-made journal cards & one for a photo. I am reading Shimelle's prompts each day, however I'm using those more as a reminder to be aware of what I'm learning (or remembering) throughout the day rather than using the prompt idea itself. Here's a look at my lessons for the 7th through the 9th.

Last Saturday I continued working on my re-arranging project in the front room and was reminded that rearranging, deep cleaning, organizing, and decluttering can lead to discovering (or rather re-discovering) item we've forgotten about. I was surprised to discover several platters that we haven't used in a while and a cute bread basket hiding in the buffet!

On Sunday I learned a new skill! Double-clicking the round button on my iPhone allows me to see which apps are active and gives me the ability to turn them off, which saves battery life! No wonder I was having to charge my phone every day - every app on the phone was active.

And then on Monday I got to spend the day cropping with Cheri and remembered how friendships formed online and through blogging are even better when they lead to in-person get-togethers, especially when scrapping is involved.

How is your LSNED coming along? Have you had any surprises in your learning this month?

Ally taught me how to turn the apps off a while back. I still run out of power early in the day unless I recharge!

Nicely done Melissa!

This is coming together so nicely.

I use my phone for so many things I have to charge daily anyhow. Sat yesterday and caught up on LSNED.

I learnt this for the iPad, Melissa, but had completely forgotten about it on my phone! Just investigated and like you just about everything was running! Thank you so much for sharing your learning because now I have learnt too and will be sending warmest good wishes for your day every time I do it! :)
