Strongholds is the second book in the blessed Trinity series, and the most profound thus far. What is your stronghold? Do you know? Do you even know the meaning of a stronghold? Through Pastor Landris, this book will break it down, and then show you how each character overcomes their stronghold. I learned soooo much, that I couldn't hold it to myself and recommended it to all I came in contact with, in order to be blessed as well. The author has such an anointing in her style of writing, and I t ...more

Excellent book...not sure if it is a Christian Fiction or self help. The book leads you to take a look at your own issues in a gentle, yet urgent manner. This is my first encounter with Mrs Griggs, but I am currently reading Blessed Trinity because I just have to know what is going on with Faith. LOL. Vanessa Davis Griggs is now on my top authors list. I hope that she continues to publish her work because she not only has a talent to tell a story but a gift from God to make a difference in the l ...more

I'm so glad I read this book! This book was not only enjoyable, but I felt ministered to in the end. I love how Ms Vanessa shows the process of freedom from strongholds. I also loved how one guy asked "how long will it take to be set free from my stronghold?" Lol. I've asked that question. Even asked for a date.

I think we've all asked that question. I learned many powerful things in this book. Here's 2:
1. Cut yourself some slack. God knows where you are and He will see you through. Don't give u

my mom was very interested in me reading this cuz its aboout 'church' and she's says i need "Jesus"! i think its a good book,i can really relate to this it has alot of aspects from other people's lives that i know of. it tells a few sotries. one is about a maried woman who seems to have everything, the looks, the job , the man etc. only thing wrong is her mind and her marriage. it probaly wouldnt bother much women if the only problem they had with their husband was him being away all the time co ...more

Sometimes you read a christian book and thats just it.. it's christian. Some lovely girl, some handsome man knocked off balance by some indiscretion.

Vanessa Davis Griggs was able to create a brilliant list of characters that are really servants of Christ and reflect the issues that church folk go through, our issues.

Her book transports you from your home into Sunday mornings and Wednesday bible studies where everyone can say an Amen.

This will make the third book I have read by Vanessa Davis Griggs. I can say I have enjoyed all of them so far and I am looking forward to the next. Not only can I relate to the characters but the fact that she weaves the Bible into each chapter brings it home for me. I can actually see these people as if I belonged to their church. Who would have thought that you can enjoy a book like this? I think people who aren't church goers or very religious would still fall in love with Pastor Landris and ...more

I have to say that after I reading some reviews where indidviduals where disappointed in the ending. I have to agree! I have loved and enjoyed all the books I have read by Vanessa Davis Griggs especially the series with Pastor Landris and Johnnie Mae. The most disappointing part to me was that at the end Pastor Landris seemed and felt actually Mega Church and my picture of him was a little different from this. I previously viewed him as a humble straight forward talker passionate about teaching ...more

Vanessa gives the reader more clarity about Charity/Faith/Hope and you discover some of the hidden secrets about Memory/Elaine. I cannot wait to read the next sequel, If Memory Serves, to find out all these secrets that have been trailing throughout the previous series!

This book started off great. It touches on many real-life issues, and it even made me evaluate the strongholds in my own life. I gave it a three because I was very disappointed with the ending. Perhaps the third book will pick up where this one left off?

Very powerful. Many Christians do not understand what strongholds are and most churches don't address it. I highly recommend this entire series.
