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.

So much FUN
*wrapping gifts & creating handmade gift tags
*crafting with my friend Joellen (sorry - can't show you what we made, Christmas is coming!)
*visiting with my sweet teenage friend Ally who's just returned from her first semester of college
*shopping with Mama & Daddy
*mailing Christmas cards & packages (the line was long but I was in & out of the post office in only 15 minutes)
*antiquing with my friend Kim
*enjoying a date night to see A Christmas Story The Musical
*and celebrating Mama's 67th birthday!
We've been watching FUN Christmas movies in the evenings. I've also read a couple of books, created a set of cards for a Valentine's Day card class I'll be teaching at Scrappin' Goodtime in late January (more information coming soon!), and completed four layouts!
We're looking forward to a relaxing weekend at home as we head into Christmas week. What are y'all up to this weekend?
