Hello! I'm Melissa Caddell, a writer and blogger from Los Angeles and the human behind MelissaHopes.

You know how humaning is hard? Well, I write about that, being a decent human (from recycling to social justice), raising decent humans and some of the hard things around faith. Each week, I send out a short newsletter with 5 things I've discovered around the internet that matches my goal of trying to be just a little bit better of a person. My hope is to share these quick resources with other humans who want to grow and improve their lives with small steps. It's not a major life change by Thursday, it's just about being a little bit better. :) Hope you enjoy!
