Welcome to Beautiful Mommy Feet

And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” - Romans 10:15 (ESV)

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”- Isaiah 6:8 (ESV)


Hi! My name is Melissa and I'm a Stay at Home mom of 2 little ones, Jaxson who is 4 and Paitlyn who is 2.  I am also blessed to be the Foster mom of two teenage daughters: Holly 15 and Alexis 13.  I don't get to talk about them much here but I treasure them as if they were my own!  My husband is a Student Minister here in Danville, Ky.

The Lord has created in me a passionate desire to assist with my husband and work with students. I've been involved in some form of ministry since birth I think, but the time I served doing that current "scheduled" ministry was all the ministry I did. 
The Lord has graciously been teaching me alot over the past 3 years but in September 2010, I realized God called us to be Fishers of Men, The Fields are white for Harvest.  I always knew that. I could have recited those verses from memory just from hearing them so often but those two phrases haunted me for weeks!  How do I help harvest these fields if I'm only working at 10% capacity.  

I was really convicted over my shallowness of thinking that my ministry began and ended with the student ministry, and of course in serving my husband and children - but that goes without saying. Granted I dove in and spent as much time as possible with the students, but it generally consisted of Sunday Morning, Wednesday night and a few other times per week. 
That wasn't enough. 

The Lord wanted to use me at the grocery store, at the gas station, at the park, where ever He took these feet He's their Master He wanted to use them.  Even though I felt very limited because I am a stay-at-home mom.  How can I do ministry that takes me out of my comfort zone, from my home? I began praying for the Lord to teach me how HE wanted to use me, 100%. Not only when it's convenient.

I had begun writing out different things I was learning in my bible study on a small Facebook page. I would add more members as I became more comfortable. 
Finally, I learned about blogging. It scared the daylights out of me, and it still does. I pray so heavily over what I write because it is so personal but since I'm sharing it I can't bare the thought of expressing something as truth and being wrong. 
Beautiful Mommy Feet is my Spiritual Journal available to the public. So yeah, it's intimidating. But I'm nothing more than the Lord's simple vessel. So hate me or love me, this is what I do.  I share the Gospel from my dining room!  (: Even though I'd prefer the love :)

I would be honored if you wanted to learn right along with me!
