Who Am I Anyway?

My name is Melissa. I am a creative, passionate Midwest girl making my way toward the life of my dreams. I enjoy art in many forms, experiencing the wonders of nature, writing, and helping others – the last two being the reason I am here.

Life – Abundantly is the story of my ongoing journey toward a more natural, abundant, and purposeful life. I share these (often personal) stories in hopes that you might find something of value to help you along your own journey. I often feel very alone in some of the new ideas I am researching or trying out, and I don’t want you to feel that way, so please consider me a friend and ally as you make changes to your own life.

You may find a wide range of topics here because the very nature of this journey is that it begins to encompass all areas of your life. From my first steps of learning to make food from scratch to my most recent project of discovering how to finally value myself, it all centers around the theme of living more naturally, abundantly and with purpose.

My sincere hope is that you can find something here that will enhance your own journey toward a more abundant life. If I can help you with that goal, please feel free to reach out to me. I am here for you!
