Ann Melton will visit City Lights Bookstore to read from and sign her new book, I Will Lift Up My Eyes, on Saturday, May 18th at 3 p.m.  Melton says of her book, “In this book you will read true stories of God’s unlimited power, which is beyond imagining.  You can see that He is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or dream.  In Romans 8:28 we are promised that all things work together for good for those that love God.  That means He will take our failures, mistakes, and heartaches and make them into something beautiful.  For more than 50 years I have kept a journal of the glorious things God has done in my life and the lives of family and friends as they experienced the warmth of God’s love.  It is my prayer that in sharing these stories, the reader will be lifted up in faith and will begin his own special walk with the Lord.  No matter where you are, you can come before the Lord in prayer, knowing that He will be waiting with outstretched arms.

Some of the stories in the book are stories that I and others would rather have forgotten, but I believe that it is in our mistakes, heartaches, sorrows, and victories that we learn some of our most valuable lessons.  I have recorded these stories in an effort to glorify God and to help others on their journey.  I believe that we are all travelers along a difficult road and that as Christians we have a responsibility to help others in their journey.  If this book helps even one person, I have achieved my goal.”  To reserve a copy please call City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499.
