Let the church say amen by ReShonda Tate Billingsley( Book )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 699 libraries worldwide
Reverend Simon Jackson's dedication to the church that he has transformed into one of the most influential religious institutions in the South has left his family including his lonely wife Lorretta, rebellious daughter Rachel, troubled son David, and younger son Johnathan, who hides a secret that could destroy his father's beliefs, bereft and struggling. In her riveting second novel, ReShonda Tate Billingsley, winner of the Gold Pen Award for Best New Author for My Brother's Keeper, crafts a bold and heartwarming story of family and faith that will inspire readers everywhere. Reverend Simon Jackson has always felt destined to lead and he's done a good job of it, transforming his small Houston church into one of the most respected and renowned in the region. But while the good Reverend's been busy tending his flock, his family's gone astray. His nineteen-year-old daughter, Rachel, gives a new meaning to "baby mama drama." Crazy in love with her son's father, she's wreaking havoc on the man's life, even though he's about to marry another woman. David, Simon's oldest at twenty-seven, has been spiraling downward ever since a knee injury ended a promising football career. These days he's seeking solace in drugs, even feeding his habit by stealing church offerings. Blessedly, twenty three year old Jonathan, a college graduate and the apple of Simon's eye, is poised to take his father's side as associate pastor or so everyone thinks. Loretta has been a devoted wife to Simon, but she's beginning to realize that enabling him to give more to the church than to his children was her biggest mistake. As things begin to fall apart and secrets are revealed, will Loretta be able to help her husband reunite their tattered family before it's too late? Let the Church say amen is a powerful journey through one family's trials and a remarkable story of reconciliation and love

Raedella Rollins left the dusty town of Sweet Poke, Arkansas, on a Texas-bound bus with four mismatched suitcases, a newsroom job offer, and a promise to herself: never look back. Now, less than a decade later, she's a top-rated talk show host, a celebrity news anchor, and fiancee to Houston's star councilman. The future looks bright for Rae, and Sweet Poke is nothing more than a distant memory. But now that she's reached the top, her ragtag family comes knocking. Mama Tee, the grandmother who raised her, calls with unwelcome family updates; and Shondella, her jealous older sister, guilts her into sending money. To Rae, nothing could be worse than an unexpected reunion with her over-the-top relatives. But when her picture-perfect life turns out to be an illusion, Rae's family calls her back to Sweet Poke and to the life she left behind. Can Rae let go of the pain of her childhood and open her heart to the healing that only faith and family can provide?

"How far will you go to save someone you love and trust when they've kept a dangerous secret for years? That's the question facing Lance Kingston, a successful Houston magazine executive whose recent marriage to beautiful, high-powered attorney Tia Jiles seemed to promise a bright future for both of them. But under the surface, a fierce and frightening storm was brewing. That's because Tia never revealed to Lance what she and her family have known since Tia was seventeen-she has an illness that takes over her mind, transforming her into a raging, violent woman hell-bent on destruction. Bipolar disorder. Schizophrenia. Or crazy, as Lance's grandmother continually reminds him. "Crazy leaves clues," she told him point-blank, and perhaps Lance should have listened. Tia's mother tries to pray the problem away ... and Tia's doctors can't help her if she won't do what they advise. Now there's more than their marriage and Tia's survival at stake: Tia is pregnant, and Lance will stop at nothing to keep his troubled wife and unborn daughter safe. But at what price?"--Page 4 of cover
