That Faith, That Trust, That Love

By: Jamellah Ellis.

Here is another great book for you to check out. In this book Marley Shepherd is a successful layer who is engaged to be married to one of Atlanta's elite. On what should be one of the happiest times of her life she starts to feel that something is missing. This is a two part book where both parts are included. In the first part we see what her life is like without God in it and how everything seems like it is perfect. In the second half of the book we see what her life is like when she opens up and lets God in. This book really hit home for me because I went through a similar situation in my life to what happened to this character. When readying this book its easy to see how we may think that just because we have everything we want and could need that we don't need God, but just as quickly as you can amass that great wealth God can step in and take it all away just to show you that he should be the center of your life not things. Always remember that if the Lord takes something from you it only means that there is something greater waiting on you.

Down On My Knees

by: Victor McGlothin

This book is about a successful woman named Grace Hilliard who is a single mom raising a son on her own and is proud to be. Like so many single women she has gone through the always a bridesmaid and never the bride scenario. It is at one of these weddings that Grace's whole outlook on life is changed. Deciding that she wants more out of life than being a single woman enjoying drive by encounters with men she decides to turn her life over to God and to seek his wisdom and direction for her life. She does this by taking a vow of celibacy until she is married but little does she know that the devil will try everything in his power to tempt her to fail. She goes to one of the older ladies in the church for advice on how she can gain a closer walk with God and how to let him direct her path. She also finds that, like so many of use, that the man God chooses for her is not what she expects. In this book you see how God will always send use just what we need and not always what we want but that in the end they are one and the same. Pick up this book and see that the best way to change things in your life is not by trying to fix it yourself but by getting Down On Your Knees and turning it over to God. Turn it all over to the Lord and He WILL work it out. I hope that like me you are blessed by this book and that you allow God to work in your life as he works in the lives of the characters and that as a single woman you find a new way to go about finding that special someone. Let go and Let God send him to you, not you go out and try to find him.

Chasing Faith

by Stephanie Perry Moore

Alright readers here is the second must read book. Chasing Faith by Stephanie Perry Moore was a GREAT book which also takes place in Georgia. I could hardly wait to finish it and I was done with it in a day. This book centers around an FBI agent named Christian Ware who accepts a job working for the secret service protecting a well known black minister who is running for the democratic presidential candidate. She is haunted by some decisions that she made in the past but is determined to turn over a new leaf and to gain a closer walk with God but she finds herself tempted when she falls for the candidate's son. In this book we see how God can bring two people together and use them to uplift each other in the worst of circumstances. You will also see that no matter how bad things get that God is always there in the mist of things to help you see the lesson involved, and that all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. One of the things that I really loved about this book is that it is full of action as well as spiritual advice. If like me you love romance then you will find a love conquers all theme in this book. Not just the love between a man and a woman but also the love of God for his children. For the single christian ladies out here, this book shows the type of man that we are all looking for. If you are looking for a Christian book full of action and romance then I suggest that you pick up this book and enjoy.

Make Me Whole

By: Roishina Clay Henderson.

This was a GREAT book and it took me about a day to read it. The primary setting for this book takes place in Atlanta, GA. The three main characters in this book are Jacky Jayson, Denise "Neicy"Chavez, and Prescilla "Cee-Cee" Bates. Jacky is the single friend that has trouble finding satisfaction in both her job and personal life. Denise and Prescilla are both married and each is having their own set of problems in their marriages. When these three friends get together on a trip to the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) Annual International Holy Convocation which is being held in Memphis,Tennessee they are each reintroduced to the wonders and blessings that can be found when you Let Go and Let God and that no sin is so great that you can't find forgiveness. I loved how personal the characters are and how real to life they seem. You can almost see these three women in your mind. They are real people living real lives going through the same trials that we all have to deal with on a daily bases. If you are single or married you can see yourself in each of these characters. Whether its the fact that you are unsatisfied with your Job, unsatisfied with your marriage, or have troubles with your family this is the book for you. If you struggle with a lack of faith in God or you just feel that your schedule is too busy to spend the necessary time with God that you should, I suggest that you pick up this book and allow God to MAKE YOU WHOLE.
