Hi, I'm Melanie Newton. I help women learn how to study the Bible for themselves through my Joyful Walk Bible Studies and Graceful Beginnings books for anyone new to the Bible. I also teach online courses for anyone who wants to grow their Bible-teaching skills to help others walk joyfully with Jesus! I think it’s always the right time for a Dr. Pepper, that my family is the greatest, and being outside for even a few minutes is a daily necessity.

I have LOTS of Bible Studies and ministry resources on this website for you to use in your life and ministry. Enjoy!

Leading a Bible Study Group for Beginners?

Really! You are so in the right place. Check out these resources.
