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.
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!
