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.

Sunday Musings - Obedience
The story of Noah and the flood is familiar to many and provides a wonderful example of obedience. Noah built an ark based on God's directions. Genesis 6:22 tells us that Noah did all that God commanded him.
Noah was a righteous man who walked with God, yet it must have been difficult to stand strong through the ridicule and questions that surely came his way as he spent years building the ark. Yet, he and his family were saved because of his obedience.
I have to admit that I'm glad God hasn't called me to build a boat in my front yard. (In fact, I'm pretty sure it's against our homeowner's association's regulations!) However, as God is calling me to share more and more about Him through illustrated Bible journaling classes and opportunities to teach, I want to follow the examples He's given us in His Word and do "all that He commands."
