Been There Prayed That

Been There Prayed That

by E.N. Joy




Mother Doreen has left New Day Temple of Faith in Malvonia, Ohio, to help her diabetic sister care for herself and her family in Kentucky. With her sister's husband, a truck driver, pretty much living on the road, Mother Doreen feels in her spirit that she's needed to intervene on her sister's behalf, especially when the Assistant Pastor of her sister's church seems to be there just a little bit too much. Mother Doreen's suspicions really start to grow when her sister's belly does too. Is it Mother Doreen's spirit of discernment warning her that things in her sister's home and church aren't what they seem, or is Mother Doreen just a busy body church mother sticking her nose where it doesn't belong?

Back in Malvonia, Tamarra and Maeyl's relationship is moving along nicely. She even has a feeling that the man she knows God placed in her life is going to propose to her. But will all of that change when someone from Maeyl's past shows up at New Day Temple of Faith, unexpected and unwelcome?

Mother Doreen knew that she had a mission in Kentucky. Her sister was sickly, her husband was on the road and something about the way the assistant minister hung around her sister, Bethany, didn't fit well with her spirit. As Doreen makes it her business to be in the mix of what's going on, she just may not be hearing precisely what message God is trying to give her. Tamera is excited about the way in which her relationship with Maeyl is growing as well as the reconnection with her mother. That is until her mother decides it's time for Tamera to forgive her brother. If that weren't difficult enough, it appears Maeyl has a ready-made family. Tamera has already been down this path with her ex and she refuses with the next. Unique cannot understand how pastor saw fit to appoint Lorain as the new leader over the Single's Ministry. Sure the male membership increased, partly because Lorain's skirts were too short. Lorain tries unsuccessfully to put Unique in her place. She may be a Christian, but surely a mother with three children and three different babies' daddies needs to spend her time worrying with her children instead of what Lorain may or may not be doing. When pastor decides that Lorain and Unique should work together, they constantly find themselves on opposing sides. As Lorain learns to soften her heart some, she finds herself covered in the past. 'Been There Prayed That' by E.N. Joy is the second book in the series. I'm finding myself rejoicing in the word right along with these characters as they try, stumble and learn. I love how the story deals with being conflicted, forgiveness and just when you think they got it, drama! Now I spoke on the many, many errors featured in book one. While book two was better, to my dismay, the book still has errors. (Ex.: break used instead of brake, misspellings, missing words and the wrong name used.) Reviewed by: Crystal
