Hey guys, Melissa here. Welcome to my blog and thank you so much for reading! This blog started out as a personal project. I was working on a book manuscript (The One Who Stayed) and receiving mentorship from a well-known Adventist editor. As he analyzed my writing, he felt I had some raw talent. He suggested I start writing every day to hone my writing skills.

I began posting on Facebook each day, discussing various spiritual life and Bible concepts with my personal friends and family. The reception of my posts was surprisingly positive, with one of my first posts reaching thousands of people through over 100 social media shares and comments.

When I saw such success I knew I could not take credit for it. I felt God calling me to ministry through my writing and so I created this blog which I call "A Bible & A Girl". I continue to write here nearly every day using the Bible as my primary source and prayer as my guide.

It is my goal to motivate others through an inspirational blog to study the Bible and turn to it for guidance in their own lives rather than depending solely on friends, family, teachers, or pastors to teach them what they believe about spiritual and religious topics.
