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.

December 9

I spent the day helping Iris clean and set up for the Annual Ladies' Ornament Exchange. We had a great turnout - 24 in all! The food was fabulous as always and it was wonderful to see some of the ladies I haven't seen since last year's event. Lots of laughter and a fair bit of ornament stealing! (Robbie completed another exam, then enjoyed some time relaxing at home.)

Oh, that looks like so much fun! I used to do something similar with my friends in Orlando. Don't have any friends in Nashville that follow suit. I may have to start something myself! :)
