Hi Patt, I had that happen too when I was testing it out. What solved it for me was instead of trying to open the file and print, I opened adobe reader and then opened the file inside adobe reader. Does that make sense? Try that and let me know if that doesn't work and we'll try something else. ♥ Melissa~

Elizabeth, I love your mantra, it reminds me of Psalm 31:24 "All you who put your hope in the Lord be strong and brave." (NCV) And your plan to be present and consistent is perfect, having a plan gives legs to your dreams and goals! Can't wait to see your work! ♥ Melissa~

Hi Dana, I know, it's so addicting isn't it? The more you explore His Word the more you want to know and adding color and paint and paper to that is just too wonderful for words (kinda like God, huh?)! So glad you'll be hanging out with us this summer! ♥ Melissa~

Hi Joy, I believe God wants to teach us all so much about His Word this summer and with your open heart He will definitely be able to show you new things! I bet your greeting cards are lovely, and adding scripture to them will only make them more wonderful. I can't wait to see what you come up with as we do the lessons! ♥ Melissa~

Shannon, Thank you so much for your kind comments. Your prayer brought tears to my eyes this morning, it was appreciated more than you know. I feel so thankful that the Lord would use Erin and myself to do this and then bless us even more by bringing wonderful women like you (and all our sweet students and fellow art journeyers) in to our lives. What a testament to the goodness of God! He gives us everything we need for our assignment, does the work through us Himself and then rewards us for the completion! Ha! He is so rich in mercy. ♥ ♥ Melissa~

Hi Christy, I'm so happy that Erin and I can help you with some of that motivation that you need! I know it can be hard to find the time to do something like this when working a full time job and taking care of all of life's other responsibilities, so I'm proud of you for taking this step toward making that happen! I think you'll find once you get started that it becomes such a soothing part of your day that you just won't want to miss it for anything! His burden is easy and His yoke is light. :) So glad you're joining us! ♥ Melissa~

I know just what you mean Tiffany. I think we all struggle with that. I believe as you work through the exercises with us the Lord is going to help you let go of all that and be free to worship Him with your art! So glad you took the brave step to join us! ♥ Melissa~

Oh Christina, I've had a couple of years like that, so I can relate so much. I think you are absolutely right that this will help your faith because Romans 10:17 says that, "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God". So your faith is built up when you hear (or read) the Word of God! So get ready! :) ♥ Melissa~
