About Melanie Dale
Melanie Dale is a minivan mama and total weirdo who stinks at small talk. Her laugh is a combination honk-snort, and it’s so bad that people have moved away from her in the movie theater. She adores sci-fi and superheroes and is terrified of Pinterest. Author of Women Are Scary: The Totally Awkward Adventure of Finding Mom Friends and It’s Not Fair: Learning to Love the Life You Didn’t Choose, she’s also a monthly contributor for Coffee+Crumbs, and her essays are featured in their book, The Magic of Motherhood. She’s a panelist for MomsEveryday TV, an advocate for Children’s HopeChest, and a speaker for churches, conferences, and events across the country. Living in the Atlanta area, she enjoys recording her podcast, Lighten Up with Melanie Dale, blogging at Unexpected.org, and raising her three kids from three different continents.

A big thank you to this month’s sponsor:
I love Seeds Family Worship because it is word-for-word Bible verses set to great music. There is not one ounce of kids boppy type tunes, but songs that the whole family will love. Their DVDs teach hand motions to go alone with the songs. They have CDs on different topics to learn more about God and the Bible. And, what I love MOST is how the songs get stuck in my head and they work their way into my heart.
