Melissa is the Associate Editor for the Magazine. With a passion for helping people, Melissa Sundblom enjoys living a life in service to others. Spending several years as a Counselor for women and inner-city youth, only fueled her desire to help people improve their lives. She also worked with local organizations that worked with women in human trafficking and those that were wanting to leave the life of trafficking. Seeing the significant impact of including biblical teaching in her counseling pushed her to see trauma and the effects of trauma in a different light. The impact of that work continues to guide Melissa in her current role as developing curriculum and a program designed to provide safe-haven, rehabilitation, and restoration for survivors of human trafficking. She understands the importance of being led by the Holy Spirit and her walk with the Lord touches every area in her life. Melissa understands the challenges of being a woman and a mother, having 4 children of her own who she homeschools, and having been married now for 11 years. Family is her primary focus, but she always makes time to find new ways to help those around her. She enjoys digging deep into the Bible, looking at the Hebrew, Greek and contextual meaning of scripture. Then applying it in counseling and everyday life. She desires every person to be set free, know who's they are, who they are in Christ, and walking in the destiny the Lord put in them.

Gary & Fay Arbaugh are the founders and creators of Torah Town. Torah Town is a ministry of volunteers dedicated seeking out and living out the Whole Word of God. Our purpose is to share all that we learn, not only to our youth, but also to their parents and caregivers. We began in April 2017, as an animated Torah adventure series with each episode based on a daily Parsha reading, aimed at the pre-school to 4th grade demographic.
Our initial aim was to provide a Scripturally Based alternative to mainstream, secular programs. However, after about 4 months, we discovered that there is a great need for all forms of Torah Based entertainment, activities and learning material for children and their parents.
Now our goals have grown to creating wholesome videos and animations for our youth, designing scripture centered games and activities, as well as developing a God-Centered, Torah Based Curriculum for Homeschooling that is both entertaining and motivational for the student and parent alike. And it is our hope to be able to provide all of these materials Free of Charge. For more about Torah Town, visit: www.TorahTown.xyz
