Hello! My name is Una-Melina, I am an American living in Ontario, Canada for more than twenty years, I am married to a handsome creative-type; he is a pastor.  We have two amazing young-adult children who still live at home with us, and for more than a decade, all the way through high school graduation, studied at home with us, we called this a living education and we loved it!

I am all about simplicityminimalismmindful moments and intentional living. For those who are interested, I am an INFJ and a highly sensitive person. I like to travel. I am seasonally affected and solar powered. Sunshine on my shoulders makes me very happy! I have a passion for the presence of God; I believe God is love and everyone is my neighbor.  I have a great appreciation for silence, solitude, poetry, nature, sunshine and Scripture.

Outside of what I do here with Intentional Living, my husband and I are the Senior Leaders at a vibrant, growing church near Toronto and it is my delight and privilege to minister to the ministers as we lead our staff and executive ministry team to equip the Church for the work of the ministry.  I have a heart to help others discover their design and live with purpose. I love art, architecture, nature and the colour green. I studied interior design, and recently finished an eighteen-month intensive renovation of a 1947 bungalow in our home town.

I believe everyone is made ‘on purpose, for a purpose’, and discovering that purpose makes all the difference in living a fulfilling, intentional life. I pray that through the resources and articles here at Intentional Living you are encouraged and inspired toward your creativity and calling to live with purpose, make a difference and leave a legacy of love.
