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.

50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 - Gratitude Journal
I had hoped to complete the additional pages in the journal at the end of each month, however I occasionally had to complete several months at one time. I've shared the first eight months' pages in previous posts (January, February, March, April/May/June, July, August). This past weekend I completed the pages for the final four months of the year.
I added some collage elements, including the front of one of our anniversary cards this year, to the final page and inside back cover to complete this project.
I truly enjoyed the daily recording process as well as putting together the additional pages in this album each month. It was so much FUN recording all these little bits & pieces of our lives, and I'm excited to have another items checked off my list!
