I’m Melissa, author, speaker, and event planner. I’m a huge fan of Jesus, grace, and encouraging others.

I’m so thankful you’re here!

Hey! I’m Melissa, Founder of Living in the Wait. I created this online resource to encourage and guide those who find themselves in a period of uncertainty wondering when their wait will end. If you are new to Living in the Wait, I’m sorry life’s circumstances have brought you here. I know all to well the disappointment, overwhelm and isolation you are feeling. That’s why I started Living in the Wait. You can read a more detailed version of our journey here.

I’m an author, speaker, and seasoned event planner who enjoys all things related to logistics and details.

I’m a huge fan of encouragement, meeting new people, and thank-you notes. In my spare time, you’ll find me exploring the great outdoors or watching college sports with my guy, Ry, and daughter, Crosbee, the coolest person I know.

I’m not here to fix what you’re going through. Instead, I want to lead you to the one who can do immeasurably more with your current circumstances. It’s through my season of waiting, my need and understanding of God began to grow. I’m not thankful for the trials I’ve endured, but I’m eternally grateful for the trust and dependency I gained with God because of them.
