Step Inside… Where Stories Come to Life Audio

The Giants Without Manners, is a modern day fairytale and commentary on our culture.  Children love it because it’s about giants! Adults love it because they have met some of these giants in their everyday living. A delightful “Giants” song bookends the story.

The Land of Sighs, a modern day folktale of transformation concerning the unspoken, seemingly benign, judgment of a sigh. Granny Mona, the Queen of the Sighers, spoke thousands of things through a sigh until one day, when everything changed through the power of a story of healing.  A great short story that packs plenty of punch and an opportunity for reflection and discussion.

The Grudge Bearer, is exactly that—a story of letting go and gaining everything.  Once again, in a parable style, Melea shortcuts us to the impact of what will happen to us if we carry grudges—unforgiveness—against others.  Ages 13 and younger find this story intriguing and those older than 13 find a Truth for personal freedom.

Suitcases, is a story about the cross. What are your modern-day self-sufficiencies that hold you back from the most dynamic relationship you will ever have? This story, with its layers of allegorical meaning, answers this question and brings definable Hope to the listener.  Beautiful original vocal music, "Lines".

The Great King’s Longing, is the second part of Melea’s story most requested story, “The King Who Waits.”  To know God is a wonderful thing, but to know God longs for and treasures us, pursues relationship with us is almost too much for us to dare to believe.  Let this story wash over your soul.

A Song for the Darkness, is a “coming of spiritual age” story about a young woman who doesn’t believe she has a story worth knowing or telling.  A message in the darkness and the dust of her now deceased Aunt’s treasures brings hope alive for Constance and an understanding of the word ‘legacy’. A story of vast importance for young adults and those that love them.
