Just Be! is Melodie's big debut. What began as a short women's devotional for her to share with the women's
ministry in the church she attends slowly blossomed into a full blown book. She's currently working on a
women's devotional book as well as a children's book. We can't wait to see what imaginative yarn she weaves next.
Melodie was born in Florida and now lives in North Carolina with her husband where they have raised 4 boys. And is now a new Grandma to twins. She has worked in the beauty industry as a Nail Tech for 25 years, in the food industry as a Chocolatier, and in the health care industry as a Nurse Tech and a Cardiovascular Tech. Her priorities are: God first, family second, and then comes everything else.
She was brought up in church and was saved at an early age. But life has not always been easy. And it’s her life experiences that she uses to reach women of all ages and from all walks of life now.
God has given her a heart for women, children and family unity. She has served in children’s ministries in a variety of capacities from teacher, to director, to Children’s Pastor. Working with mostly elementary school aged children she has had opportunity to reach kids in their formative years.
In addition to her work in children’s ministry, Melodie has also worked with women in both secular and Christian settings. In the church she has served as Women’s Ministry Leader giving her many opportunities to minister to women within the church she attends. Her experience in women’s ministry includes teaching, event speaker, one on one mentoring, and much more.
Melodie truly has a heart for God’s people, particularly women and children.
For I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14
Melodie currently has a couple more books currently in the works. More information to come as it is available.
