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.

November Round Up - Continuing the Conversation
Also, in my last round up post, I mentioned that Ruth had commented that she was inspired to redesign/overhaul her craft room? Well, she did it - check out her BEFORE and AFTER posts!
When I said hello to November and mentioned our upcoming vacation, Karen said...It sounds like you need a little break, and a vacation is also in order! I'll be anxious to hear where you and Robbie are off to this time! We took an 8-day road trip here in Texas! If you missed it, you can check out my favorite photos from the trip HERE. After seeing those photos, Marsha asked...great photos...I love the little shorebird in the middle collage(maybe a sandpiper??) Uhmm . . . yes, maybe, I think so. Here are a couple of other shots - any birders out there who can give us a definite answer?
And I learned something new from Betty's comment...I truly enjoy what we call 'tiki tours' within driving distance for the day. You found some fabulous sights to share with us.What a FUN new term! I'm hoping we'll have time for quite a few tiki tours next year!
When I shared snaps of Paragraphs Bookstore, Mary-Lou spotted lots of items in the sandcastle structure. She said...I see Wizard of Oz's dead witch under the house, Cinderella's pumpkin carriage, the cat from Alice in Wonderland, Johan's whale, Privet Drive (HP); Winnie's Hunny Pot; my personal favourite, Rapunzel in the tower. And Karen asked....What books did you purchase? We bought seven books, but I actually only picked out one - A Gentleman in Moscow, which I really enjoyed and will be reviewing soon. I also read one of the ones Robbie picked out - Lois Lane Fallout, a great Young Adult book, the first in a series, that I'll also be reviewing soon.
Thanks, everyone, for continuing the conversation!
