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.

The Bridge Tender - book review
The story follows her through her first summer in this home as she meets some of the locals and makes friends, including a harried mom of two who lives next door, a pregnant teenage girl with no family to speak of, and a new love . . . who happens to be the actor from her favorite movie that she had a crush on as a teenager! The town is divided over replacing the old swing bridge with a new one, which acts as a metaphor as Emily tries to figure out how to move from her past to a new future. A good book for a summer read.
Over the next week or so, I'm planning a few catch up posts with quick reviews of the other books I've read so far this year (Christian fiction, popular fiction, non-fiction, young adult, etc). What genre(s) of books are you reading lately?
