About Yesterday’s Promise

Melinda Johnson has always felt called to ministry. So, when her father, Bishop Langston Johnson, decides to step down after thirty years of leadership at Omega Christian Center, it seems only natural for her to take his place. But Bishop Johnson feels led by a God who has other things in mind, and to succeed him, he appoints Steven Marks-a man who is opposed to female pastors, not to mention the fact that he is Melinda’s ex-fiancé.

Feeling defeated, Melinda nevertheless maintains her position as the church’s Missions and Community Outreach Director. Frequent interaction with the new bishop incites bitter sparring-and rekindles long-suppressed attraction, which grows only stronger when Melinda develops a relationship with Steven’s precious daughter, Brianna, who’s still struggling with the death of her mother.

Can Steven and Melinda set aside past pains, forgive each other, and learn to love again? Or will their opposing positions regarding women preachers keep them forever at odds?

  4. Ty, I’m delighted to be a host on Vanessa’s blog tour and I look forward to reading her book!

  5. I would have to say Pastor Reita. She started the counseling center in our church, and goes nationwide and worldwide to do the same. She has a heart for those who struggle and wants to see God work through their lives and be free. Great minister and ministry.

  6. Linda, Pastor Reita sounds like an amazing woman of God. Thanks for telling us about her and entering the contest.
