An Introduction

My name is Melissa.  I am a homeschooling SAHM of 2 great kids. I am married to a wonderful man who serves as Worship Pastor of Life Point Church in Blountville, TN. We have an interesting life. We’ve been blessed with the learning curve of having a child with special needs.  This is our journey through autism, ministry and my ever-growing walk with God’s shaping and molding.  Which has me constantly asking, “Do WHAT, Lord?”
