“I have seen too many women who are not living their lives fully because of their past, present, or future circumstances, and it breaks my heart. It is my true desire to show them that it is possible to live a life of joy and freedom despite their past or circumstances. God loves them no matter what.” ~Melissa Taylor
Melissa is the Director of Online Bible Studies at Proverbs 31 Ministries. She is a woman who people relate to because she’s not afraid to talk about real issues honestly. She has been speaking and writing for Proverbs 31 Ministries for eleven years. She is a contributing author to God’s Purpose for Every Woman , The Reason We Speak, and the Real Life Devotional Bible for Women. Her writing is also featured in the P31 Woman magazine, and the ministry’s online devotions, Encouragement for Today. Her greatest joy in life is sharing the hope of God with others because she has learned first-hand what He, and only He, can do.
In 2011, Melissa began Online Bible Studies on her blog because she wanted to provide a venue of study for women who aren’t in a Bible study group for whatever reason. Melissa has lead over 70,000 people in online studies, and in the summer of 2013, her study page will move to it’s new home on the Proverbs 31 Ministries website! Melissa lives in Charlotte, NC with her husband, Jeff, four children, Blake, Hayden, Dylan, and Hayley Grace, and her sweet dogs Princess and Maggie. Melissa and her family attend Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC.
