Filled With Light: Miracles and Inspiration for Women, Volume 2This inspiring book is filled with my own miracle stories so that you will acknowledge your own. They happen daily, so it helps to be alert to them.
Miracles open our heart, suddenly. They bring us to awe. They teach us that there is more than what we see, touch, hear, smell or experience within our regular realm. Miracles lead us to a sparkling, shimmering realm where our soul is illuminated, our heart cracks wide open, and the Spirit within us exclaims, “Yes, this is how my life is supposed to be!”
Miracles help us to live more fully in the light. As light is our natural state of being, if we focus on radiance rather than darkness, our lives will be happier. Our life force reawakens with light. Even if conditions seem miserable, or circumstances appear dark, we can always choose light. And we can be a light that shines and brightens the world. This book will demonstrate how you can open up, so you remember who you truly are.  

What’s amazing about Melba Burn’s writing is the rhythm, and the easy, compelling read. For younger women, I know they will want to go out and riot, rebel, and rejoice after reading Filled With Purple.” – Dr. Joan E. Kole, Artistic Director, AgeQuake Theatre.“Filled With Light is a wonderful book, full of precious memories and miracles that inspired me to have more faith in the power of love. Thank you, Melba, for such a powerful book. It will inspire many.” -Betsy Otter Thompson, Author, Walking Through Illusion.

Melba’s book manages to command the psyche to reach into the heart and open the floodgates to whatever waits there to be noticed. Melba is a master storyteller, with a twist: she knows something we have all been yearning to know and she shares that something so adroitly.” – Frances Allden, Writer
