I Know How to Fly on CD

Coming from a family of differing musical abilities my interest in music started early in life. I remember singing on a table top at the age of three and loving it. My love of song started early. As a young person I was often involved in choir throughout my school years, yet I remained very shy about singing alone in front of others. I was raised in a single parent home which proved to be very difficult for me as well as my Mother whom did her best. Mom helped me learn to love reading and soon introduced me to the Bible that she herself was reading. I remember praying the sinners prayer and asking Jesus into my heart at about the age of ten. Yet I did not experience a change in my life or attitude. I had an understanding of right and wrong, but my heart was never truly touched. I didn't fully understand that I was in need of a Savior. I entered adolescence full of questions and anger about my family situation. Needless to say, I made many, many bad decisions. After years of living life without the Lord I finally reached a very low point. I knew I needed to change and that only God could help me. I reflected back on God's word that I had read when I was younger. I recalled the scriptures I had read and understood that God had given us His word to keep us from hurting ourselves as well as others. His desire is to protect us from needless pain and heartache. It all made sense at last. I then understood that I was a sinner! I realized the truth and faced the fact that I couldn't abide by God's rules without Him in my life. My heart had changed and I understood this on a deep level. Wow! It finally clicked into place all that I had read! All that I had heard before. He is the answer to all of my questions. That was in 1994 and I have never regretted accepting the Lord. The joy of being right with God led me to follow in obedience and commit to grow in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ with a local church. Not long after joining, I felt God calling me to serve in the choir and whole heartily did just that. Before long I felt that God was wanting me to step out in faith and sing as a soloist. Through fear and trepidation I took that small step of faith and sang. God has brought me to a place of freedom from fear of performing by trusting Him that ' I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me'! Trust and Faith that is the key. Now I am truly experiencing the joy of letting Him work through me and releasing the passion God gave me to sing. After several years of growing as a soloist and having ministered through musical productions, nursing homes and other community events or venues, I felt God tugging at my heart once again to take a much larger step of faith. This step of faith produced this CD release and the enlargement of music ministry to include other area churches and beyond if the Lord so chooses. God has blessed me with a wonderful supportive husband and two wonderful boys that mean the world to me. Did I deserve to be blessed in this way? Not really, but God is good. I am grateful that God is allowing me to serve him through music! Southern Gospel music is such a joy to sing and it ministers to many people in different age ranges. The stepping out in faith is a day to day thing for me. I'd like to say I've arrived, but really who can say that- besides, without leaning on the Lord, how could I say I've really walked with God?! Entering this exciting ministry at this phase of my life is surprising, yet it gives me great hope that God isn't through with me yet. And I am confident He's not through with you either! Blessings to you, Melissa Jo 'The first time I heard Melissa Jo Elliott sing was when she stood in front of one of the largest church audiences in Central Florida. I was blown away! She has a unique voice with a 'Nashville Sound,' when she sings Gospel songs. She can do it all. Her stage presence is just excellent. It sounds to me like she's going places! When you invite her to sing, expect to be moved. Her life and character show through.' - Dr. Allen Higginbotham Retired Pastor & Owner/Operator of Best Christian Tours, Inc.
