More About Melissa Kirk


I love telling women about God's amazing grace.

After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2005,  I remember thinking, "What am I supposed to do with that?"  After all, MS comes with a very uncertain prognosis.

Being a problem solver, I planned for the worst scenarios. I considered handicap-friendly changes in our home, created a plan for easier personal care, resigned from my career, and cleared my schedule. Then I sat and waited.

My physical condition improved. Hmm. I hadn't planned for that. Was this temporary? Would I ever work again? Was there a significant setback in my future? If so, what would it look like? Focusing on the uncertainties turned me into an emotional mess.

After a long and bitter pity party, I finally confronted the Great Physician.

"Dear God. Why are you allowing this to happen? I can't fix this."

His reply came fast and resonated deep in my being.

"My child. Every breath you take, every step you make comes from Me and is for me. 

"Well, then God, you deal with it. I'm moving on."

He didn't have a problem with that. He reminded me that he is Sovereign God, Creator, Counselor, and King. 

Me? I am his child.

Admittedly, surrendering my preconceived idea of what life was supposed to look like was difficult. Burying the notion that I had control of anything went against every grain in my take-charge personality. I guess that's why Paul's conversation with God stays at the forefront of my mind. Here's what God's response was when he asked the Almighty to remove a thorn in his life.

"Each time he said, 'My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.' t So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses so that the power of Christ can work through me. That's why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong." II Corinthians 12:9-10 (NLT)

During my twenty-eight years serving in women's ministry, I've discovered how vulnerable women often feel as Christ-followers. I want them to experience the freedom of knowing that God's plans for their life are accomplished through his strength. He only expects their willingness to obey. 

As a life coach, my greatest joy is when a woman comes to that understanding and gains confidence that they can indeed do all things through Christ.

My novel, Running from Asperity, tells the story of such a woman. 

I designed my Grace Warrior devotionals and journals to be short and straightforward, aiding women as they learn to converse with God and trust him.  

I occasionally blog on my website at www.TheGraceWarrior.com and am available for seminars, conferences, retreats, and banquets and would love to assist customizing a message for your next event. As a professional author, speaker, and life coach, but mostly as a grace warrior, my message is the same  – God's grace is all you need.

ADVENT - Celebrate the Coming (Grace Warrior Devotional Series)

Christmas Edition of the Grace Warrior Devotional Series.  Seeing the Babe-in-a-manger piece haphazardly stuffed between the Ninja Turtle Cowabunga Christmas plaque and snow globe with Frosty in beachwear made me want to run and hide. How could anyone celebrate Christmas in the midst of the commercialized chaos?  God reminded me that in the middle of the confusion are people; grieving, worried, and desperate ones seeking relief.  What better time than Advent to share with them what the season represents – hope, peace, joy, and love?  ADVENT – Celebrate the...

GRACE WARRIOR At The King's Command (Grace Warrior Devotional Series)

Second book in the Grace Warrior Devotional Series.  Grace looked at the challenging list. Today she had to be wife, mother, daughter, and boss. Be caring, creative, and – she scribbled across the top of the page – be nice. She turned to the throne. “How can I successfully serve you with so much to do?” “Daughter,” he said. “I have told you the way. Remember the most important edict, and all will be well.” Grace Warrior bowed in obedience. She was at the King’s command. GRACE WARRIOR – At the King’s Command is part of the...

Grace Warrior - Bathed in Mercy, Clothed in Grace (Grace Warrior Devotional Series)

Book One of the Grace Warrior Devotional Series. There was a time when life dumped on, stepped on, and overlooked the woman. She searched for love, only to find rejection. Lies stripped away her dignity while antidotes for stress left her numb. She did all she could, but it was never enough. Desperate, she fell to her knees and cried out, “Help me!” God answered. She’s the King’s daughter now. She is Grace Warrior, and she’s been bathed in mercy – clothed in grace. GRACE WARRIOR – Bathed in Mercy, Clothed in Grace is part of the GRACE WARRIOR DEVOTIONAL...

Mary Aucoin Kaarto, Author * Speaker * Encourager

Anyone in Christian ministry will tell you that no matter how much they love working for God, there are times when it's easy to become tired, discouraged, filled with doubt that you're making a difference in the lives of others - all of which fall right in line with the enemy's plans to defeat you and prevent you from furthering God's kingdom on earth. This was me in 2015, when I had the privilege of hearing Melissa Kirk speak at The Cove Conference & Retreat Center. Although she didn't know it, God spoke directly to my heart through her powerful message of hope, encouragement and strong reminders that from the moment I accepted Jesus as my Lord & Savior, He removed my filthy rags (and my sins), as far as the east is from the west, and remembers them no more. I was reminded that God DOES have a good purpose and plan for my life, and that no matter - come what may - I am showered with His grace every morning. Melissa is the perfect blend of a powerful, peaceful and graceful speaker.
