More Than Enough takes you on a journey with Melany and her compassion ministry leap of faith, the Godincidences, and shows how her faith deepened as it was stretched to the point of transforming her forever.
Melany gets real and opens up about her struggles and doesn't just explain the highlights and how she used her gifts that allowed her to fulfill her calling.
The larger story displays God's love and glory, revealed through His miraculous provision for His daughter, as she followed her heart and shared His love.

More Than Enough tells the faithful adventure of Melany Jackson, as the Lord called her to launch a new compassion ministry for our friends without an address called C-U at Home. It takes place in the university community of Champaign-Urbana in Central Illinois. Experience the miraculous provision and the gut-wrenching challenges that it takes to follow the Lord into starting something from nothing. But be forewarned, this book might inspire you to step out in faith and trust God, treading into new places where you cannot see the ground until you actually put your foot down.

An award-winning movie made about C-U at Home.
Born and raised in a small town in Southern Illinois, her early years included going to a small Southern Baptist Church about a half block from her home. She went through a marriage and divorce before the age of 25, and eventually moved to Central Illinois where God got her attention. After fully surrendering her life to Him, she started down various paths of ministry. Once she became a Jesus follower, her faith became the driving force in her life.
Melany has spent most of her adult life devoted to ministry, including Christian radio, worship and evangelism, and compassion ministry.
In 2008, she received her Master of Divinity from Midwestern Baptist Seminary.
In 2017, she followed the Lord's call to serve Him in Colorado Springs.
