I wanted to share my new blog baby with you all. I have launched Another Samaritan Woman this week. It is a blog with the intention of ministering to others who have a history of child abuse, childhood sexual abuse, rape, and post-abortion syndrome. You can read more here on the about page. My first post is up as well. If you know anyone who can benefit from the encouragement of this online ministry please share this will them. There is also a community Facebook page dedicated to daily encouragement from many different resources. Can I pray for you?
Thank you for the readers who meet you here in this space. Please bless them today with your unfailing love, provision, and protection. I pray the new blog would be an encouragement to those who need it, but mostly pray that you would be sitting by the well waiting to give them living water as you have been so faithful to do here.
In Jesus name, Melinda.

Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others.
I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile.
Blessings to you and yours,
