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.

Our Little Happy Home

Journaling Reads:
Less square feet, yet just enough
Less money, but we never ran out
Less storage space, so we had to clear out some clutter

Less organizing, yet we could find everything
Less choices of places to go out to eat, but we didn’t starve
Less rooms, so we were together more

Less miles to visit family, yet not too close
Less cabinet space, but the green pantry added more
Less TV, so more movies

Less time, yet wonderful memories of those two very busy years
Less cleaning, but we still shared the work
Less sleep, so better grades

Less stress and more happiness

Inspired by Big Idea Festival Day 3 word (LESS) and Shimelle's August 12 Sketch of the Week.
