My name is Melissa. I spent most of my teens and early twenties wishing I was someone, anyone else. Through the amazing Grace of God, I have begun to allow myself to be who I was created to be, and to love that woman. I am an extroverted-introverted INFJ who loves to read, write, listen to music, do homemaker-ish things, and serve the Lord. I am on a journey with Christ, yet I have no idea where He is leading me. I am learning day by day to trust in His perfect will for my life. Instead of the mothering, homemaking, and homeschooling I expected at this point of my life, my days consist of long hours in an operating room at a local hospital. Rather than the cooking, cleaning, and child rearing I envisioned, I spend my time covered in blood and handing instruments to surgeons. Even though my life is not what I would have ever chosen for myself, my sweet Savior has provided for all my needs and is teaching me the fulness of joy that comes from submitting cheerfully to His will. I do not know what lies ahead, but what I do know is that I have a Loving, Personal Savior who has it all figured out. All I need to do is trust and obey.
