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.

Get To Know Jesus - Book Review
However, I was disappointed in the way the book continually stated things like "many scholars take these events very seriously" or "many scholars view the Gospels as historical documents that tell us what really happened when Jesus was born." As a Christian, I believe the Bible is the true Word and God and think that these statements undermine the act of faith that is so essential to becoming a Christian. While I appreciate the archeological and scholarly evidence that the Bible is accurate, I was personally saddened that the author felt she needed to continually assure children that these things were true rather than stating them as the Truth.
