For the Glory of God I Have been a member of the Christian church "The Savior" all my life, born and raised in this church by my parents and Pastors, Rev. Dr. Cecilio Melendez and Maria Melendez. . I am a miracle baby and was also born deaf, but God healed me and opened up my ears. I have been a PK(Pastor's Kid) for more than 35 years and it has been an honor to serve along with my parents. By the grace of God I have directed Our church worship group "Lights of Hope" for more than 20 years in which we do not only worship in our church and other churches, but God has open doors for us in which we are ministering to Nursing Homes as well. Along with my husband Rev. Raul Escudero Jr. God has given us the opportunity to lead the English worship ministry in our church. I love to worship God in song and started to sing in my church as a child and then began singing in other churches. God has given me the honor to record. He has given me 2 recordings which have been a great blessing. I love to write and have written quite a few English and spanish worship songs. God has blessed me with 4 children 2 boys and 2 girls and I have been married for more than 26 years. I love animals and have a house full of pets. We have cats, turtles and a dog. I believe God gave us animals to enjoy. I collect bears, but not real ones (hehehe) My house is filled with them. I love the beach in the summer and in the fall I admire the beautiful colors of autumn as the leaves change colors. My favorite season is the spring but I love the snow in the winter. When it rains I can feel the presence of God all around me. My goal in life is to be a vessel in God's hand and every breath I breathe and every step I take be in him. I want to be busy in Him every minute of my life. My favorite worship song is "Because he lives" and my favorite verse is "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" Phillipians 4:13. I am grateful to my God, My Savior and best friend ,Jesus Christ and sweet Holy Spirit the comforter of my life. TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!!!
