Melissa was on Chicago's Restoration of Spirit's TV Show where she discussed the storms of life, pot designs and her book, "GOING GREEN WITH YOUR SELF-ESTEEM".

RESTORATION OF SPIRIT TESTIMONIAL: Melissa is a heartfelt, inspiring, dynamic and yet humble speaker. Her presentation mixes a personal story of strength and hope with sincere care for others. She shows us that if she can do it, so can we! We are not alone on our journey and Melissa teaches us that we can still laugh and have fun while digging ourselves out of the trenches and moving forward in our lives. ...such as her "Bless and Release" system which I have come to rely on. Melissa is a blessing but don't release her!!
