Please Welcome Melanie to Blogazine!

Hey everyone we are blessed this week to have another story. This is Melanie from Mels Coffee Break blog and you will love what she has to say about herself and family.

First, I just have to say a big "Thank you!" to sweet Ms. Maggie for inviting me to be a Blogazine guest. What a huge honor! I love reading her blog so much, and she's really been a huge inspiration to a newbie blogger like me.
I actually find it a little difficult to devote this post to talking about myself. I would much rather write about my faith, family, and two funny little boys. However, I would love to get to know you so I'll go first and tell a little about myself in hopes that you'll stop by my blog and introduce yourself as well! :-)
I live in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of east Tennessee. I find it a bit hard to describe myself, but I've been called both a "southern belle" and a "firecracker" so I'm not sure which is actually more accurate. My husband said he would describe me as "bubbly, warm, and enthusiatic". I love life. I love to laugh. I love God. I love my family. I strive to cherish each moment of every day, and to appreciate each of God's blessings. My husband is a pilot, and I work as a software developer. We are going to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary next month! We are the proud parents of two sweet (and very active!) little boys. Isaac is five years old and is a ball of energy! Jeremiah is our baby, and at 18 months, is an expert climber. Life is never dull at our house, and we wouldn't change a thing.

I have always loved to write, but in school chose a very technical field in order to find a "stable" career. So, I first started blogging in January, 2010 in order to have a creative outlet and a hobby. I have enjoyed meeting new people through my blog and realized that perhaps God opened this door for me in order to be able to share more about Him and to encourage others. Life is so hectic, and responsibilities are so demanding. Mel's Coffee Break is meant to be a place of refreshment and encouragement for others going through these daily challenges.
I want to share something new that I am starting on my blog, and I am so excited! I hope that all of Grandma Yellow Hair's readers will join me in this new challenge! It's called "Hide His Word Wednesday's". I am challenging myself to learn a new Bible verse each week, and then to continue to refresh the verse over several weeks and months in order to really commit it to my long-term memory. I would love to have you join me!

Thank you, Ms. Maggie for this opportunity. Keep up the wonderful work you do. I appreciate your sweet encouragement, and am very thankful for you.

Lots of love,


Thank you sweet Melanie for doing such a great inspiring story for all of us to enjoy. Love your family picture to that you shared with us. I do need to join your Hide His Words Wednesday. So I must get over to your site and see what to do next.

I have been catching up on my moms blog while staying here with her and just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed reading your story.
When mom talked about all of you I had no idea what she meant until I got on here this morning and found all the comments to her to get well.
Maybe I should write a story for her but it would be about her and not me.
She and I grow closer everyday and I love her so much.
