Melissa Faye Blog was launched in August of 2013 as a place for me to create, inspire, encourage, and reflect. I hope that through this blog I can help others who may be going through a difficult time. In July 2013 I was faced with making the difficult choice to end my marriage. I felt like starting over would be impossible, and with that came a new blog!

I hope that when you read my posts, you walk away feeling refreshed and encouraged. Sometimes I may even share a laugh or two with you (those are the best, right?). I won't say that I have life figured out, or that I am an expert in anything. I may have some helpful tips, words of advice, or words of encouragement to help you get through.

I have a Master's degree in Counseling, so Psychology and helping people are my passions. I also attended a Christian University and Jesus Christ is number one in my life. All that I say and do is for Him. While I am a Christian, I do like to keep it real on this blog. Sometimes life just isn't fair and it's frustrating (right?!). But with all that goes on in this world, I want to show my love and acceptance to all people. Even those who may not agree with my lifestyle or beliefs.

When I am not blogging, I work by day at a Christian University in Financial Aid. I love being around college students and the work I do is so that they can go on and do even more than I have! I also enjoy reading, watching (too much) Netflix, journaling, cooking, and going on road trips or adventures. I am aunt to a niece and nephew, and being an aunt is my favorite! I am an avid Target shopper (hello, addiction), and I can never have too much coffee (hello, Starbucks). But, most of all, I just love connecting with people and that is what this blog does for me!

I hope you stick around a while and read all about my life's little happenings. If you are a new reader, feel free to email me or send me a Facebook message! I would love to chat!
