A Cry For Independence
After having Q’s baby out of wedlock and struggling to support herself and her child, she is determined to never depend on a man again. It has taken twelve months to gain her GED, employment, and the five-year-life-plan she is committed to live by to make it happen. When her apartment availability is delayed, she is forced into a temporary living arrangement with her son's father that threatens the future she’s mapped out. Quan Blanton Sr., Q, has found the freedom only salvation through Jesus can offer. All there is to do now is put his family back together and live the Christian life. Only one problem, Tammie doesn't want anything to do with him or his God. Is there anything too hard for God? Q and Tammie discover all things are possible with Christ.
A Heart Surrendered
As the teenaged pastor's daughter of New Hope Church, Sharonda Peterson knew finding comfort in Carl's arms was a mistake. But how could the only night she ever felt beautiful be wrong?
When Carl leaves town to pursue an acting and singing career, Sharonda relegates herself to a life of church service--and solitude--rather than face the pain now associated with that one night.
Carl Ray Everhart has been caught up in the fast pace of fame … and female adoration. But a near-death experience has him questioning everything and vowing to set things straight … starting with the love that got away.
When Carl returns home to serve as the worship leader at New Hope, Sharonda finds that it takes every ounce of her resolve to resist his pursuits … not to mention memories that threaten to overturn the delicate balance she's created. Can she finally surrender the one thing she's tried all these years to protect: her heart?
