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.

Have More FUN with Stacy Julian
The first workshop was led by Stacy Julian and was basically a FUN motivational interactive talk about how important it is for us to incorporate play into our lives. We each received a bag full of FUN goodies.
Stacy encouraged us to create something with the Play-Doh during her talk. Since I had green Play-Doh, I decided on a California snowman.
Stacy reminded us that play allows us to express joy, is the opposite of depression, and is vital to our well being. The biggest take-away from Stacy's presentation for me was that it is so important that we continue to play and have FUN, which I had already decided to do when I chose my word for the year. This session was the perfect confirmation for me that I'm on the right track for a healthy, happy, and FUN 2014!
