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.

I used three photos instead of one 5x7 and included a Creative Imaginations journal spot to record this story from my niece's visit in 2009.
Journaling reads: Pun’kin and I had just been seated at Maggianos when Robbie called to say his car wouldn’t start and he was having it towed to the repair shop. We picked him up at his office and decided to go to the Cheesecake Factory which was closer to home for supper. As we were getting out of the car, Pun’kin realized she had left her purse (with her brand new glasses inside) on the booth seat at Maggianos. (She had just recently begun carrying a purse.) I called and was informed that our waiter had stowed her purse at the greeter’s booth and they had it waiting for us. We were starved by the time we arrived back at Maggianos and relieved to get the purse and glasses back. We had a different waiter, but after the meal, Pun’kin located the waiter who had found her purse and offered him a tip from her very own spending money to thank him. He graciously refused her money, but I was so proud of her for being willing to reward someone for a kind and honest act.
