About This Blog (And Me)

Hi! I’m Melanie, wife to Jacques and mom to Angie and Emmy. Jacques and I met at Wits drama school way back when, and got married in 2009. We live in Johannesburg, South Africa, where we plan to stay unless God calls us elsewhere.

About This Blog {And Me}

Wind in a Letterbox was launched in 2014 as a place for me to write about faith, marriage and parenting. If you’re a parent looking for inspiration and encouragement, then you should feel right at home here. Feel free to stop by my Facebook page or say hi on Twitter.

If you like to craft, then you should take a look at my Ten Days of Easter series, and my 12 Days of Christmas series. You might also like my Earth Day series.

If you’re worried about how to handle difficult questions your kids asks, read these posts about death, where babies come from, hijacking, Halloween and adoption.

I’ve also written a lot of how God has led us to homeschool our daughters and how we are doing our best to raise them with a knowledge of God’s Word. I pin a lot of homeschool ideas, so check out my Pinterest boards if you’re looking for inspiration.

You can find guest blogs I’ve written over here.
