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.

The Woman's Study Bible
This Bible is absolutely beautiful! The gorgeous floral design on the cloth cover is carried throughout the Bible in full color as a header at the beginning of each book and as frames around the 300+ topical articles. This somewhat hefty book has a lay-flat binding and large readable text. There are quotes from godly women scattered throughout and numerous study aids: verse-by-verse study notes, biographical portraits of 100+ biblical women, book introductions and outlines, topical index, concordance, maps, charts, timelines, etc.
I was preparing to teach illustrated Bible journaling workshops on the book of Ruth when I received this Bible, so I immediately turned to Ruth and read through the study materials and articles. I especially like how the notes and various features of this Bible appeal to women's interests and highlight women throughout scriptures.
I'm looking forward to studying the book of Esther this week as I prepare for more workshops this coming Saturday. This is definitely a Bible I'll be picking up often as I dive into the Word! If you're looking for a new study Bible or a gift for a special woman in your life, I highly recommend this one.
