Coffe+Crumbs Faith Motherhood

Ep 15: Melanie Dale {It’s Not Fair: Learning to Love the Life You Didn’t Choose}

Who is Dancing in the Kitchen with Annie Leigh?

Author Melanie Dale is joining our dance party and you better watch out…this lady knows how to throw some “Jazz Hands!”

Melanie Dale is a minivan mama and total weirdo who stinks at small talk.

Her laugh is a combination honk-snort, and it’s so bad that people have moved away from her in the movie theater. She adores sci-fi and superheroes and is terrified of Pinterest.

Author of Women 
Are Scary: The Totally Awkward Adventure of Finding Mom Friends and It’s Not Fair: Learning to Love the Life You Didn’t Choose, she’s also a contributor for Coffee+Crumbs, and her essays are featured in their book, The Magic of Motherhood.

She’s a panelist for MomsEveryday TV, an advocate for Children’s HopeChest, and a speaker for churches, conferences, and events across the country.

Living in the Atlanta area, she enjoys recording her podcast, Lighten Up with Melanie Dale, blogging at, and raising her three kids from three different continents.
