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.

Memorandum Monday - War Room
Robbie and I both thoroughly enjoyed this story of how elderly widow Clara mentors Elizabeth, a wife and mom who finds herself in an argument almost every time she and her husband are together. Clara shows Elizabeth her "War Room" - a closet she uses for prayer. Although Elizabeth is skeptical at first, she eventually creates her own war room. Elizabeth's husband, Tony, is a top pharmaceutical salesman who is flirting with the temptation to cheat on his wife while padding his samples reports, eventually resulting in the loss of his job.
While this is a movie with a deep theme (fight in prayer and let God do the rest), there are lots of light, funny moments (some of them relating to the way Elizabeth's feet smell) and a great scene with a jump-rope competition (wow, I don't remember doing all that with my jump rope!). I highly recommend it!
