Melissa Patton is a wife, mother, teacher, and writer who currently lives in the St. Louis Metro East of Illinois. She loves serving in her local church where her husband also serves as pastor. Always enjoying the Advent season and the richness of the Jesse Tree Scripture reading tradition, she wrote Jesse Tree Moments as a way to incorporate the stories of the Old Testament leading up to the birth of Jesus into her family’s Christmas celebrations in a kid-friendly way. The book contains thirty scripted devotionals easy to use in a family or church setting. The stories chronicle the coming of Jesus beginning in Genesis and going through to the Gospels.
