Grab a bowl of ice cream and let’s have a chat!
My name is Melissa Howell, and I bet you and I have a lot in common.
I bet you like ice cream.
I bet you want to be uplifted and inspired.
I bet you want to love yourself and love your home.
I bet you want to make difference in the world.
Well, this is just a blog, but I think that in some small way, it can help you with everything on that list!
I’ve got loads of ice cream recipes. This started out as an ice cream blog so I could share my ice cream inventions with the world. There are ice creams here you have never dreamed of before, like Dark Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream, Pear Crumble Ice Cream, and Orange White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Ice Cream, with more flavors coming all the time. (I bet the words “ice cream” have been mentioned here more times than anywhere else on the internet). Just visit Ice Cream Central to see them all.
The world is full of so much negativity. That’s why I want to share things like feel-good books, funny personal stories and my experiences with overcoming challenges. I’d love for you to share your book recommendations, funny things that have happened to you, and your inspirational thoughts and feelings! Just leave a comment here, or send me an email! Melissa@icecreaminspiration.com.
One of the things that has been so helpful for others who have visited my blog is my series on home organization. If you’ve ever heard of the KonMari method (or even if you haven’t), I’ve got tons of posts with tips for how to truly organize your home, once and for all. You can also join my 7-Day Decluttering Challenge to make a big change in a small amount of time. If you REALLY want to get serious about transforming your home, then you will love my Transform Your Home, Transform Your Life Program, which takes you through EVERY area of your home and guarantees long-lasting results! This course is only open a few times a year, so be sure you subscribe to my blog in order to informed when the course opens again.
One of your absolute favorite parts of Ice Cream and Inspiration is going to be my More Than a Makeover section. If you’ve ever wanted a makeover, there is a super fun, inexpensive way to do it that will honestly change your life forever. It’s not just about how you look. It’s about learning to love yourself for your true gifts and talents and knowing how to share those with the world. You’ll read all about my personal experience with this program and see the transformations of other women just like you. (The program is called Dressing Your Truth, and if you’ve never heard of it before, you are going to LOVE it!)
Finally, I’m sure that you, like me, want to leave this world a little better than you found it. You want to help your family to be healthy and safe. You want to be a good friend or spouse. You want to make a real difference in the life of even just one other person. I personally have become involved with an organization called Operation Underground Railroad, and I am truly, desperately passionate about helping this organization. They rescue children around the world from sex trafficking and help them to be rehabilitated and overcome their terrible experiences. The work this organization does is truly inspiring, and a portion of the proceeds from my blog (no matter how small) are donated to Operation Underground Railroad. You can read about them in my Operation Underground Railroad section, or go to their site directly to learn more.
Before dedicating my life to the betterment of the world through gourmet ice cream (among other things), I worked as a file clerk, bookstore clerk, administrative assistant, missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (for free), fry cook, 3rd grade teacher, teacher of both Japanese middle school and college students, Certified Professional Photographer, and a mom (also for free). I have three beautiful daughters and one handsome husband.
