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.

Blog Every Day In May - Us Right Now

A peek at our life right now . . .


He works in an office Monday through Friday

and cooks all of our meals on the weekends.

He planted a few tomato plants

and is hoping for a huge harvest.

He's adding autographs to his Agents of SHIELD set

and selling his extra trading cards to finance them.


She takes care of the house and the laundry and the yard

and sometimes cooks a good supper during the week.

She hasn't lost a single pound this year

and hopes to get back on track soon.

She scrapbooks as often as possible

and meets up with a friend or two at least once a week.


They spend most of their time together

and talk on the phone several times a day when they're apart.

They want to exercise more and eat healthier

but talk about it more than they just do it.

They are looking forward to seeing the Avengers 2 movie

and are planning a road trip to Niagara Falls.


Today I'm linking up with Cate and her challenge to blog every day in May. Click here to join in!

Sian said...

Aw: this is so nicely done. I really enjoyed it! Looking forward to more in May

Fiona Kennedy said...

Great photos. I cant seem to lose any weight this year either!

Cate Brickell said...

I love that you included the things you do together! Talking to Steve during the day is what I miss most about him working nights. Can't wait to see your Niagara Falls photos!

Susanne said...

Oh I like that cooking arrangement you two have. With summer coming on, I can count on the grillmaster to help a lot with meals. Hmm . . . maybe that would give me more time to blog.

Karen said...

Great photos of both of you! I think trying to lose weight is one of the hardest projects ever! If I never went out (how terrible would that be?) it would be a lot easier!

Great photos! It's wonderful that you spend so much time together and that you get a break from cooking on the weekends. :)

Love this meme, which I've now seen a few times. It's great to get the "big picture" of my blog friends.
