Salt and Light Devotional

I'm over at His Kingdom Come again today with a devotional all about Salt and Light.  As seems to be my style lately, it's not exactly what you've heard before, but I think you'll be encouraged and I hope you'll be inspired.


Fun Free Printable Downloads

I have some great resource links to freebies for you there too, including beautiful free artwork by Erin at Art by Erin Leigh and a printable calendar of quiet time meditations.

I'd love to hear your feedback here if you enjoy the devotional.

Hope you're having a blessed and joyful week!


Grace and Peace,


♥ Melissa~

We Implore You on Christ's Behalf

This week I'm the guest writer for the Take Me Deeper devotional at His Kingdom Come.  We're talking about what it means to be an ambassador for Christ and I may have a little different take on it than you've heard before. I would love for you to stop by and check it out!

What does it mean to be an ambassador for Christ?



Grace & Peace,



"We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God."  -2 Cor. 5:20


Thank You, A Printable and Boy Have I Missed You!




Hello My Friend!

I'm returning from an unplanned (but much needed) hiatus.  It's been an exciting, challenging, happy, sad, interesting, but above all, wonderfully blessed year for me so far, how about you?

I have deeply appreciated your messages of encouragement and prayers and wanted to tell you thank you so much for that.

And also give you a heads up that you'll start to receive more news from me.  I didn't want to show up all unannounced in your inbox so consider this my announcement, ha!. ;)


Free Printable Calendar

And I have a little gift for you too.  A printable 2016-2017 academic calendar!  It has one of my favorite scriptures in coloring book form so if you like, you can color it in and meditate on it as you begin this fresh, new, school year.


Just click on the image above to download it. 

The printable is in a large pdf that has been compressed into a zip file.

When you click on the download image you should have the choice to open or save the file.

If you are on a windows machine you can choose "open with windows explorer" and it will download and then open the file.

You should then be able to save that folder wherever you would like on your machine.


Take Me Deeper Devotional
