I’m Melinda. I’m a former free-thinker, now a believer in God. Always a work-in-progress as we all are. So don’t believe those dang ads telling you that you’ve arrived. The only place you’ve arrived is in their showroom and their bank account.

Through my earlier years in life, I pursued happiness, money, and significance—never satiated. Independent, self-reliant, driven, and egoistic.

As life would have it, life got hard, like hell kinda hard. It got to the point where I have all the fight sucked out of me, and I knew I couldn’t do life on my own anymore. So, I searched, I questioned about life (loads of them)…and I found God.


I learnt that there is a God.

By me denying His existence does not change the fact that there is a God.
A God who is the Creator of the universe.
A God who loves me for who I am, unconditionally.
Someone who I don’t need to strive to be loved.
Someone who has forgiven my past and present wrongs.
A God who is alive and I can have an on-going relationship with. Someone who hears me, and I can hear from.
Someone who I can depend on.
A God of miracles and healings!

So, I responded to God’s invitation to a personal, love relationship with God, the Father. To love Him.

Accepting Christ is my best decision ever.

And that is the best decision I’ve made in my life.
The search for who I am, what’s my purpose in life, and the meaning of life—found, when I found Christ.

I hope this website inspires you to live an intentional life of no regrets—
by knowing God
never losing hope
being kind to yourself and
passing-it-on in being kind to others through your words and deeds.

If it has encouraged you, please share this website to encourage others.

As always,
Carpe diem!

In His love,
Melinda
