From a very young age, Melissa Pearce has had two passions - Jesus and teaching. Today, her passion is utilized as a teacher, speaker, writer and encourager.
Melissa’s primary desire is for hearts to know their identity in Jesus Christ and to see their self-worth through His eyes. She has personally battled with feelings of insecurity, inferiority, and inadequacy. Each has negatively impacted her identity and self-worth. However, through her faith, trust, and love in our Lord, she was able to overcome. Ephesians 3:17 “that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love” has become her core Scripture which she abides from. Melissa realizes a heart becomes secure when it fully understands the love of the Father. It her heart’s desire to help others see God’s faithfulness in their lives as well.
The Lord’s call to encourage, love and minister to hearts inspired Melissa to establish Enduring Hope Ministries (EHM) in March 2010. Her prayer is for God to use this ministry to reach hearts throughout the world.
Since the inception of EHM, Melissa has become an evangelistic teacher, dynamic speaker, accomplished author, and devoted encourager. Melissa has advanced her biblical academic studies and has become a Minister and ordained Reverend.
- Unveiling Jesus will take you through the Gospels in a year. As you travel through the Holy Scriptures, allow God to reveal His truths about His Word and then disclose to you how those Scriptures apply to your own life. While on this journey with God, I believe you will discover the heart of Jesus. Allow Him to reveal to you how Jesus loved, interacted with people, met their needs, and accepted them. You will also learn these simple truths are what He desires for His people to do here on earth. Jesus loved people unconditionally and believed in them. In discovering the heart of Jesus, I believe He will open your hearts to a deeper intimacy with Him. After all, this is what He desires. He longs to go deeper into a love relationship with you. We are told in Ephesians 5:1 to be an “imitator of God.” In order to impersonate someone, we must study their behaviors. God the Father longs for us to emulate every aspect of His Son, Jesus. Why? Jesus is the answer to a hurting and lost world. When we reflect Jesus’ behavior, others in the world will see Him in us. God wants us to show the love to the world that is shown to us through His Son, Jesus Christ.
- Positions of self worth and value are being compromised and destroyed. Every woman has the desire to feel accepted and loved. The desire is so great that we try to satisfy those deep desires by our own means. We rely on self accomplishments such as striving to be a successful business woman, to receive a master’s degree, or to get married and have a family, signifying acceptance into society. Some women rely on their exterior beauty to affirm their importance. However, the impact in the end becomes futile. Our accomplishments and abilities can only carry us so far. Once we fulfill one area, our mind is on to the next achievement. Since our inner self is only satisfied temporarily, what we long for is never fully accomplished.
