Melissa Sherlin grew up in the Bible belt with very little understanding on how to apply the Bible, but that did not hold her back from finding a way. At a young age, she didn’t exactly comprehend the Word, but her heart had an appreciation for it. More than anything, she desired to know the Word and to apply it to her life. During a time she was a single mother, raising two children, she realized – through the Word that she wasn’t raising them alone and God was indeed with her.
Melissa continues to be a diligent student of the Word. She now has a passion to help others seek God through His Word. After receiving grace through Jesus Christ, she knows she is not only forgiven but she is chosen. God planted a passion inside her heart to share God’s goodness with others – especially single mothers.
In her ministerial role, she has helped women in over 100 countries learn how to study the Word of God through online Bible study groups. It is a great honor of hers to help women in countries where the Bible is illegal.
Melissa is a wife, mother, surgical assistant, encourager, community volunteer and writer. Those who know her best appreciate her caring heart and her humor which often provides comical relief. If you ask her, she would say, “I am just a girl who has messed up a lot, but knows God can do wonders with the messy.”
