All About Missy

Well, probably not all about Missy.  After all, I am pretty complex, so if I told you all about me, I might break the internet!  I'll start by telling you a little about me, and we can build on that! How does that sound?

I am a wife, Momma, and "Mimmy" (that's my grandma name) from rural West Texas.  I've been married to my high school sweetheart and BFF, Todd, for 35 years.  Our two kids, Eric and Emily, are grown and married to Caitlin and Josh (respectively).

Todd and I are Gump and Minnie to Langley, Kimber, Rosalyn, Josiah, and one more whose name we do not know. Proverbs 17:6 in the Passion Translation says, "Grandparents have the crowning glory of life: grandchildren!" This could not be more true!


You are a beloved daughter of the King! 
Bought and paid for at the highest price imaginable – Jesus Christ on the cross.

If we were sitting across the table from each other with steaming cups of coffee in front of us, I would lean in close to you, look you straight in the eyes, and tell you this…


“You are so loved, girl!”


“You are a priceless treasure to your Father!”


“Girl, you've got MOXIE!”


And then, after we’ve gotten all weepy and sentimental, I’ll crack a corny joke or make a ridiculous observation, and we’ll laugh till we cry some more.  That’s just how I roll!

I’m glad you’re here, sister!  God has given me some beautiful people to do this life with, and you are one of them!

Be Blessed!
Missy Signature


Did you hear the buzz?

Have you ever noticed how every Disney princess has an animal sidekick? It’s true!

Cinderella had the mice.  

Ariel had Flounder. 

And Moana had a crazy chicken named Hei Hei.

Now, I’m not claiming to be a Disney princess.  No way! I am a princess of far more worth because my Daddy is the King of kings!

And since all princesses need an animal sidekick...

I’d like to introduce you to


But don’t be misled by her pink, sparkly crown.  Phoe-Bee is not a queen bee as you might assume.  She is a princess, just like you and me! A daughter of the King!

“Why a bee?” you might be wondering.  Well, since my given name, Melissa, and my nickname, Missy, both mean “bee” or “honeybee,” Phoe-Bee is the perfect little mascot for this site, don’t you think? 

Her favorite Scripture is Proverbs 16:24, “Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body,” and her hope is that you will discover that sweetness for yourself here!

Bee Blessed!

You are...
