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.

Around the Web

A quick post today to share a rather eclectic mix of things I've found interesting around the web lately:

How Schools Kill Creativity
An older TED talk by Sir Ken Robinson challenging us to rethink the way we educate children. I especially like the story of the dancer/choreographer that he shares as an example.

What are your essentials?
A thoughtful post by Rachel Olsen about what is truly essential on your list of tasks and a reminder to focus on the essentials first.

WCS Sketches
A Pinterest board with sketches from Write.Click.Scrapbook.

How To Become More Consistent In Your Daily Journaling
A neat idea from Michael Hyatt if you're struggling with being consistent with journaling as a daily habit.

Organizing: An Event or a Lifestyle?
Aby Garvey compares an organizing lifestyle to a running lifestyle and shares how something can be a completed event (marathon or organizing project) or a habit that becomes a lifestyle.

What have you found interesting around the web lately?
