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.

Sunday Musings: My Heart - Christ's Home

If you've been following along with my blog the last few weeks, you probably know that I'm leading a ladies' Bible study this fall. I love to study the Bible and get together with other women and discuss what we're learning and how it applies to our lives. I also enjoy incorporating scrapbooking into my life anytime I can! So, I created a simple visual that I'll use each week of the study.


The My Heart - Christ's Home Bible Study is based on a sermon given by Robert Boyd Munger in 1947. He shared that when we invite Christ into our lives, He comes to live in our heart and uses the analogy of the rooms in a home to show how we can prepare our heart as a home for Christ. The heart/house is divided into seven sections/rooms that we'll be discussing in our study.

My plan is to add to this layout each week and fill in the rooms - I can picture this all in my head, but I'm not sure how it'll look in the end. I'll share the sections with you as I go along.

Have any of you read the My Heart - Christ's Home pamphlet or children's book or participated in this study?

No I haven't but I shall look the sermon and booklet up as it sounds intriguing.

I've not heard of this either, but I'm looking forward to hearing more about it.
