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.

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #14
I'm using my Grandma's old sewing table as a worktable; I still have plans to re-paint it . . . eventually. I use this space for planning and blogging and organizing all sorts of pieces & pieces that I'm processing.
This space reveals a lot of what's happening around here right now. My laptop screen is displaying the latest post I published on the Personal Scrapbook blog to announce the Creative Lettering Bible Journaling Workshops I'll be teaching in collaboration with Jana Kennedy-Spicer (of SweetToTheSoul) in June. My calendar and notes are there in front of the laptop so that I can move on to creating a blog post for the new Bible Journaling Painting classes I'm scheduling at Scrappin' Goodtime in June.
On the right front corner of the table are three printouts with daily challenges for the month of May: (1) a Bible journaling photo challenge; (2) a Bible journaling prompt; and (3) a daily Bible reading list. I may not be able to keep up every day with these three challenges, but I'll be joining in with them as I have time throughout the month. The page on my printer to the right is a coloring page I found online that I'm planning to trace into my Bible for tomorrow's prompt.
The four piles on the left of the desk hold:
(1) cards & notes that I need to reply to and/or file,
(2) notes and examples for the paint classes I'm planning,
(3) a book, workbook, printed notes, and a journal for the meetings and work I've been doing with a registered dietitian the past couple of months, and
(4) the new Bible I'll be reviewing soon is under three flyers I brought home after today's library book club meeting.
Joining in very late today with Julia at Stamping Ground for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. What's on your workdesk this week?
