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.

Five on Friday

I'm processing photos today, uploading them from our cameras and cell phones to the computer, and thought I'd share five random shots from my July iPhone photos.

After over nine years in our home, we finally invested in solar screens. I can now leave the blinds open even on the hottest days!


Last Saturday, these ladies joined me for a FUN day of Bible Journaling at Scrappin' Goodtime.


Early Sunday morning Robbie received a call that the air conditioning in the server room at his office was not cooling, so we spent several hours hanging out at the office while it was repaired. I took the opportunity to finally do some rearranging, organizing, and decorating in his new office. It's not completely done yet, but it's a huge improvement.


These beautiful flowers caught my attention as I was headed into the library last week.


And, finally, I saved this flyer from Facebook. My Daddy will be singing at this event on Saturday. That terrible photo on the bottom right is him . . . obviously he hasn't quite mastered the selfie.


What photos have you captured with your phone this month?

You had a busy week & the Bible Journaling workshop looks like you had a LOT of fun there. Robbie is very lucky to have had you tidy & decorate his office, it looks like a place where a lot of work can get done :) Happy weekend.
