Melanie Medina is a writer and speaker who loves local coffee. Melanie was recently interviewed on the Brilliantly Brave Podcast where she shared about her sixteen-year career as a single mom of three. Melanie believes that being a solo-parent is one of the most important (and most gritty) jobs on the planet. Now, as a newlywed and newly empty-nester, she also shares a powerful testimony about Gods redemption, faithfulness, goodness, and restoration. In hopes to encourage other women who might feel stuck or hopeless, she continues to share pearls of wisdom with her friends, family, co-workers, and those who are avid readers of her BeholdHerLife blog.

She is a true example of, Here I am Lord; send me.” As part of her message to push past what seems impossible, She has written and released her first E-Book, titled The Fitted Sheet Dilemma.” In it, she draws the correlation between her frustrations with the fitted sheet and issues in day-to-day life, ultimately bringing a directive to look to the Heavenly Father and his Word for guidance.

She is currently writing another book to encourage the Souls of Solo-Mommies who are overcoming the feeling of being devalued due to marital status. Within those pages, single moms will find a new slant on their journey, as well as a call to action to rise to the occasion of becoming Solo Moms with God as a co-parent. She is a contributor for the Joyful Life Magazines Devotion Team.

Melanie and her husband of six years, Tony, live in her hometown where she is a Director of Marketing. They enjoy serving in their church, traveling to Tennessee, spending time with their children and chasing the sun with their grandboy.
