Hey there, I’m Melanie Grace! Most days you can find me at work selling branding to groups and events that come in to my convention hotels. When I get home I spend time with my 2 young boys and make dinner with my mom or my husband. I was born and raised in Southern California and though sometimes I feel like I should leave the state – I’m not sure I can!
I am mostly known for my creative spirit and outgoing personality. I love to sing and write music, I love to be create and make things. I started quilting in 2019 and it has changed my life so much and been the CenterPoint of my focus throughout the year.
My YouTube Channel has featured Driving Around Karaoke since 2013! The EN Studio was launched in 2015 and rebranded in 2019. My website, TheMelanieGrace, was launched in 2018 and my Podcast was created in 2019!
It is my sincere desire to work with women and encourage them along their life’s journey. I know we all struggle things I life that seam unmanageable and stressful, but that’s where we need to connect because we yearn for community.
People often refer to me as Multi-Passionate! My boss even told me once, “Melanie – I know you are a passionate person in all you do, but sometimes you need to just calm down.” LOL – he knows me so well! I love serving the world by sharing my stories and where I’ve come from. I never know what I can tell me people that will enhance their life, or allow them to not feel alone.
Some things I am most passionate about in life are creating things, encouraging and building people up, and raising my boys to be gentlemen. I want to wiggle my toes in the sand at the end of a long summer and sit by a fireplace drinking cocoa in winter.
When I grow up I want to own a large house on a vineyard. I want to have a B&B and an Event Venue so I can be the site for weddings, receptions and parties. I have a vision of growing grapes and bottling my very own blend. I dream to providing generational wealth for my children and to fill the world with what I can offer.
As a Driving Around Karaoke star I’ve been featured on a documentary about Karaoke and I have sung the National Anthem at the 2016 California Mid State Fair.
When I’m not busy working or planning my life in my bullet journal, you can catch me: Cutting up some fabric only to piece it back together! I might even try to re-organize my fabric stash! But on Saturdays, my husband and I take the boys to our City Library and attend Family Story Time. It’s truly a sweet time, even though they can’t sit still or be quiet like us adults.
If you’re dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me.
1. I used to be a professional Swing Dancer – I guess you can say that I’m Retired
2. I studied sociology in college and have an AA & BA in it! I love people….
3. I taught myself how to play guitar & bass guitar
4. I have a dream of being a New York Times Best Seller – I just can’t decide if I want my book to be Fiction or Non-Fiction
5. My husband and I met online in 2008 – on ChristianCafe.com (sometimes I get still get emails to meeting someone…)
