Hi – Welcome to my website, where you can track my publications and contact me about teaching or speaking, and to my blog, where I write about finding a spiritual path, whether you believe in God or not.

I have long been interested in spirituality, but really found myself in need of God – of something! – in 2004, when I was bottoming out on drugs and alcohol.

I just couldn’t live like that anymore.

There had to be another way.

Through trial and error, and with a lot of help, I found that there was a voice I could trust inside me. We all can connect with a God personal to us, whether we’ve grown up “religious” or not, whether we’re looking inside a church or out. Nothing is required except an open mind.

I send out weekly blog posts via email, describing ways we can connect with God in the midst of the mess of our lives.

Please subscribe below, email me at Melissa@melissajoanwalker.com or connect with me via facebook or twitter.

Your own higher power is a voice that can be trusted. Let’s find it together.
