Whether it’s news stories, blogs, or social media posts, Melonie is an editor who is always editing. She has been a part of the American Family Association since October 2009, just after graduating from Blue Mountain College and marrying Ray Manning. While at Blue Mountain, she served as editor of the college newspaper and interned as a reporter at the local paper, The Southern Sentinel. Though she always aspired to be a writer, she found her niche at AFA as associate editor for OneNewsNow, where she served full-time for three years before joining Urban Family as its website’s editor. Melonie and Ray have three children: Mason, Millie, and Ezra.
