About Me

umbrella-melMelanie, the Life Coach in Blue Jeans

When I think about how to “do” life, there are two things I know for sure.

The first is the fact that our passions, calling and roles were pre-ordained. It’s no accident I love to coach, write and share particular aspects of life’s journey with others. God planted those gifts into my DNA before I was formed in the womb. He did the same for everyone else – including you!

Not so sure of that? Don’t take my word for it. Let’s see what you think about the scripture below.

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)

The word “advance” lets me know we all have something to do while we are on the planet. As a Life Coach, I’m focused on helping others navigate to and through the life they are intended to have.

The other thing I know is He will supply you with everything you need to fulfill those roles. When that happens – through His guidance, the people around you, particular places and your own growth – life changes. The journey takes on new dimensions you may have never imagined as yet.

I believe in this promise:

“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NIV)

As the Life Coach in Blue Jeans, I’m living inside my own journey by coming alongside my clients to motivate, offer valid action plans, assist in next-level aspirations, sort things out, help with the transformation from stuck to unstuck, and generally chase your success with you.

I believe we are better together! Let’s make life a celebration!

Melanie, the Author

Julia Cameron, the author of The Right to Write: An Invitation into the Writing Life , says, “Writing is like breathing, it’s possible to learn to do it well, but the point is to do it no matter what.” I understand her view completely after writing freelance for over thirty years.

I continue to be an author within many anthologies and work-for-hire books. I’ve written award-winning poetry, articles, personal experience stories and essays. I write for both secular and religious markets. On the practical side of writing, I specialize in creating leadership development trainings, along with programs for volunteer and missions ministries and bible teaching material.

My own book, The Heart of a Ready Scribe: 52 Reflections for Writers, continues to be well received by the writing community. The book has been recipient of the 2013 Xulon Christian Choice Award, the 2012 USA Best Book Award and was a 2012 Indie Excellence Award Finalist.

I am currently working on a six-part series for writers, with the first installment, entitled Let’s Write: A No-Nonsense Manual, already released on Amazon and the next book, Let’s Write Devotionals!, set to release in 2015.

I will forever write and love the company of those who also have a passion to put words on paper. I’m pleased to provide author services such as: coaching sessions for writers, book assessments, and editing.

I am also privileged to lead the Writers Life Group in Houston, Texas. If you’re a seasoned writer, new writer or a writer wannabe and live in the area, please feel free to contact me for information about our group.

If you’re interested in writing, I’m interested in you!

Melanie, the Speaker

I have spent many years motivating and inspiring people to think about life, step out of a comfort zone and take the next step towards goals they were meant to achieve.

I have been certified and trained by the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) and the Therapon Belief Institute in a number of areas.

Speaking is one of my favorite activities. It brings with it the opportunity to meet new friends!
