I’m Melissa!

I live my life by creatively looking for what’s next and inspiring others to discover what’s next in their life. I am a pastor, a speaker, a writer, an encourager, and a creative.

You’ll find all sorts of things here, but mostly I write about my latest creative venture (writing, hand lettering, graphic design, knitting, cooking, etc), my family, and my faith.

I am a Northwest girl to the core, although I’ve lived 10 years in Southern California and currently live in Colorado. I am married to my best friend and high school sweetheart, Josh. We have four (yes FOUR) children – three boys, and a girl. I’m sure you’ll get to know (and love) them if you hang around here for a bit.

I have been blogging since 2008, and I love the people I have met through this crazy process. I blog about whatever is on my mind at the moment, so you never know what’s likely to come out! I was also a regular contributor at Ungrind.org, a webzine for Christian women in their 20s & 30s.
