 To encourage and inspire the Everyday Creative


INTENTIONAL LIVING is an online community of everyday creatives focused on Faith, Culture, Creativity & Family.
Una-Melina is the creator and curator; an encouraging and creative church leader, lover of art, architecture and interior design, Christian ministry consultant & coach, wife, mother, home-education advocate, and award-winning poet and freelance writer.


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.”

– Cheri Lucas Rowlands, WordPress News


In addition to INTENTIONAL LIVING Una-Melina’s writing has been featured on art & faith websites, Christian ministry publications and a few other blogs around the web.  She’s written/co-written many songs registered with ASCAP, a former recording artist and public speaker, writer and co-host of a Christian family television show.  Her award-winning poetry has also been published in several poetry collections, as well as being selected for additional (unsolicited) poetry publications.

“Una-Melina’s verse is wonderfully expressive…”

“displays a unique perspective and original creativity…

                                                                                                        …exceptional poetry.”
