This book was really good, from beginning to end, I still can't figure out how Marcus and Melissa couldn't figure out until later (the ending of the book) that Sasha wanted him back, I was over here SMH, like here who go again another one, who leave a good person who has done good by them and treats them great, now they want them back "since" they have gotten themselves into a relationship, where they are happy. I tell you, people are a trip.

BTW: I already knew that lady Alretha was

Ha, Karmas is definitely a mother chicken hen. She thought sure she was going to get Marcus back, it's funny how people don't realize a good thing until it's gone, and that person has moved on to the next person who loves them, and they love them back. Reminds of what my sister had mentioned to me about a lady she knew has cheated on her man (her husband) and left him for another man, and now she regrets it and wants him back. Funny people want you back, and when Marcus asked Melis

Uh... no, sorry, that is not quite right. The biblical definition of repentance is grief and Godly sorrow over wrong doing. Only THEN do we turn from sin.

I don’t condemn the author because I wrote my own books before I understood doctrine too. I just hope she will learn and correct herself.

It can be difficult to practice what you preach! Whether in marital, family or single relationships, adhering to the scripture daily requires sacrifice and humility. These characters take you through the struggle!

Angela found out that Aletha was indeed her grand mother. And Sasha wanted to get Marcus back only because he had finally found him a woman. Glad he didn't let her stop him because she was trying to use the child as an excuse why they should get back together as a family.
Love that all her Chapters start off with a scripture before the book continue. I don't remember the chapter but while I was reading it, it was like being in Bible Study.
It's important that we practice what we preach and that do

Fantastic read, a relative recommended the first book and I became so engrossed that I am planning to read the whole Blessed Trinity Series
What are you willing to do locate a relative? Gayle Cane visits her cousin, Angel Gabriel revealing some past revelations (secrets). Angela is willing to act on it, before her wedding day.

Marcus Pebbles falls in love with his high school sweetheart, Sasha. After a failed marriage and daughter, Aaliyah, he wants to get back into dating. He agrees to take Melissa on their first date to church service. At first, it seems like Melissa is still turned off by Marcus, using D-word as an excuse. Bible

Well to start off I related completely to the main female character. She was believable, smart, and witty. This book was not my usual read except in the fact that it was a romance. I felt the author did a great job in creating believable characters. I enjoyed reading this and would recommend it to anyone who loves a Christian romance. The book was a very motivating read. It talked about some of today’s issues with relationships. I enjoyed the “mini sermons” throughout the book also. The author h

Vanessa Davis Griggs has a blend of characters with social issues, baby mama drama, and unveiling faith. Characters are well-written that interweaves some generational curses that need to be broken, religiosity, judgmental believers, and genuine angels that step out of the norm. There are some characters you cannot help but love, and others question their motives when they realize they lost something good! Do not jump to other people opinions of you, do not be quick to anger, and loose what God ...more
This was a pretty okay book. It was lacking in the romance area despite being about a dating relationship. It's my first Christian fiction. Therefore, I am not sure if the bland intimacy points are standard. Either way, not enough umph for me even if it is for sanctified folk. ;) Also the story's tension was strong, but the accumulation and climax were lacking. I got to the end thinking, is this it? *insert confused look* Also, I did not get how the subplot fit with the over all story. I was tem ...more

Practicing What You Preach is the fourth book in the Blessed Trinity series, which introduces Melissa, an event coordinator on the uprise. She is planning a wedding while praying for one of her own, but may not be prepared for whom God has chosen for her. A few familiar characters reappear in this book, and more secrets are revealed. Once again, Mrs. Griggs has awed me with her way with words. Not only was I entertained, but at one point, believed I was in Bible Study. I learned sooooo much from ...more

I am in love with this whole series! it has blessed me so much. I write down and keep track of the list of scriptures. For me these books have shown the application of scriptures in real life. Also I like reading books that are fun but don't compromise my beliefs. I can't wait to see what happens to all the characters.

I really enjoyed this book. I was a little frustrated with Marcus regarding the ex. I kept telling him to man up! The ex is a brat to say the least. Along with her shady mama. Oh but I was hooked from start to finish. Ms Vanessa amazes me. While each book in the series seem different, they are all intertwined. . Love it!

Recommended to Benzette by: Vanessa Griggs
I loved it. It was a great way to tie in new characters to an old story line. I have followed the series all the way through and I loved the new people and the way you tied it all in. I can't wait to read the next one.
