Melissa is passionate about spending time with her favourite people in the world, her husband Chad and kids Myles and Emma. She has a heart of worship and believes that when people get a glimpse of who God really is that He will change their life forever.  Her heart is also for women to become fully daughter's of God, so that nothing can hold them back from fulfilling God's destiny on their lives.
