Intentional Living

Live with Purpose. Live Loved.


The focus here at INTENTIONAL LIVING is primarily on living a simple life fueled by grace, creativity and authenticity. It’s realizing you were made on purpose for a purpose. Then deciding to live with purpose.

Intentionalism is more than minimalism. It’s purpose driven decisions and real authentic relationships. It’s living loved and learning to let go. It’s the careful choice to rest in God’s best, grow in grace, make a positive difference, and leave a legacy of love.

Una-Melina’s writing has been Freshly Pressed by WordPress and featured on Weekend Reads.

“The writer. . . weaves a nostalgic story about her childhood, family, sister, and death. She crafts a sensory narrative composed of fragments, each starting with “I remember . . .” and the build up of these fragments — and memories — results in a beautiful piece about growing up and simply remembering. But it’s layered, and not all sweet — the writer deftly recounts a life that is at once beautiful but sad.”
