What does crazy look like? Let Deborah tell it: It's the reflection that looks back at her in the mirror. She has a career she loves, two beautiful children, and a handsome and successful husband. Her life seems to be the blueprint almost every woman she knows would kill to live. But working full-time and being a full-time mother, full-time wife, and full-time Sunday-only Christian seems to be taking its toll on her.

The singles ministry at New Day Temple of Faith is beginning to unravel, and the pastor is considering dissolving it. Some members believe the only way to hold it together is by getting their pastor to join. And why shouldn't their leader show support by joining, considering the pastor's own single status? Some church members support the idea, while others frown upon the fact that they are being led by a shepherd who is single in the first place.

The story was great as always. I love E.N. Joy's work. The narrator however made me wish I'd just read the book myself. Text to speech has more emotion. I wish the author could decide who reads their work. That would ensure that every purchase is worth it.

Her husband is a workaholic, more concerned with his family's financial situation than emotional stability, and he doesn't understand why his wife is unhappy. He doesn't understand why the house and the credit cards and the fabulousness of what he's given her isn't enough. So when Angelique meets someone new, she does something she never thought she'd do - she has an affair. It's addictive, and Angelique wants more and more, but is she willing to give up everything she has for this fantasy come true?

Felise is not the kind of woman to cheat on her husband - especially with her best friend's man. But after one perfect storm of a night, it happened... and she can hardly believe it herself. To top it off, when she woke up in the morning, she found that the man to whom she guiltily made passionate love died of a heart attack overnight. Felise, who is a nurse and a good citizen at that, leaves the hotel room without reporting his death.

A great perspective on how ministry can go wrong fast...gives us a self-check that pastors and prophetesses are only human. We must remember that God is the ultimate voice to listen to!

I absolutely love love love the writings of Vanessa Davis Griggs. Not only are her stories full of amazing characters, but also full of the unadulterated gospel truth!!! There's no sideways about it...she is definitely an author who I aspire to be someday.

As always, Lizan Mitchell is one of the greatest narrators that ever walked the earth. She draws you into the story with her different voice pitches and listening to her tell the story is like none other. Simply amazing!
