Publishers Description Gold Pen Award-winning author ReShonda Tate Billingsley returns to the Houston congregation of her #1 Essence magazine bestseller, Let the Church Say Amen, in this warm and powerful sequel.
When her husband hears God's call to become a preacher, Rachel Jackson Adams is distressed -- she grew up a preacher's daughter, and knows how difficult life under the microscope can be for a reverend's family. But hot-headed Rachel has toned down her wild ways, and for the sake of her marriage and her two children, she is now the reluctant first lady of Zion Hill, unafraid to rock the boat with her unconventional ideas for revitalizing the church. When her son, Jordan, begins fighting at school, Rachel turns to the boy's father, Bobby -- Rachel's first love from years ago. Married now himself, there should be nothing between them except their concern for Jordan -- so why does seeing Bobby again feel so distractingly tempting? With her brothers facing dramas of their own, and her father, Reverend Simon Jackson, recovering from illness, Rachel must listen carefully to discover what God truly wants for her -- and to decide if Bobby is the lover of her dreams or the devil in disguise

Great book! Feb 15, 2010
I was really impressed with this book. I did mot want to pit it down. It kept my attention the entire time. i also liked how it gave you background info in case you didn't read "Let The Church Say Amen". I'm starting to really like this author. Keep up the good work! I can't wait for the next book.
Things That Make You Say Hmmmmmm! Jan 2, 2010
I just finished reading Everybody Say Amen and to say I enjoyed it was an understatement. It reminded me of some people I have met in life and in the church. Rachel Adams did not want to be a first lady. It just gave her flashbacks of what she thought her young life was like as a PK-preacher's kid. She thought she had to change herself to fit the mold of a "first lady" of a church. In the end she learned valuable lessons about herself, life, people and what motivates them to do or act as they do. It was a book I finished in one day. The major and minor characters were given actual personalities. It was interesting and captivating. OOOOOOH! and the ending.......get this book nooooow! It will help you think about how everyone in life must at times forgive, be forgiven or both. This book will not disappoint!
The Devil is Busy Jun 25, 2009
Upon completion of Everybody Say Amen, I found myself astounded and enlightened. I didn't realize there was that much antagonism within the church. Then again, those who show out, need to be called out? Can I get an Amen?
Rachel, the daughter of a charismatic preacher is now the 1st Lady of the very same church that denounced her during her youth. Although, she's no longer an obsessive and vindictive nineteen year old, drama still remains her middle name.
Her brother, Jonathan has drama of his own. He's in the midst of a vicious custody battle. All he wants to do is spend time with his son but he's constantly attacked by his ex-wife and her family.
David, Rachel's other brother is battling demons of his own. He's now clean and sober but his "girlfriend" Tawny's attempts to drag him right back into the gutter, have taken a toll on his entire family.
The elders of Zion Hill, Birdie Mae, Sister Adams and Norma Jean are a riot. They take pleasure in getting under Rachel's skin. LOL
ReShonda blends Christianity, humor and drama brilliantly. I'm grateful that I've finally read some of her stellar work.
In conclusion, I was told there's a movie in the works. I look forward to that as well.
Great read Jun 6, 2009
Yeah, Rachel is full of drama, but this book tells a wonderful story of family, redemption and forgiveness as we follow Rachel and her coming to terms with being the woman she should be. Hard to put down - I finished this in a couple of days. A feel good story that's great for light reading.
