Unaccustomed to Waiting

Kensington Books, 2004 - 330 páginas
Rev. Jessie Covington is a good man, but after being jailed for a crime he didn't commit, he's also a changed one. Doing time opened his eyes and his heart to the obstacles faced by families affected by incarceration. And when men from his church and community begin to come to him for counseling, he realizes he's not the only one who's been affected. Brother Samuel Carter's marriage is on the rocks because his wife's secret vice has landed her in prison one too many times. Eric Elridge has just learned that his jailed ex-girlfriend is pregnant. And there are others. Rev. Jessie knows that it will take prayer, wisdom, and help from above to keep their lives--and families--from falling apart. Inspired by his wife Marlene's support group "Ladies in Waiting," Rev. Jessie forms "Unaccustomed to Waiting"--a way for men whose wives or girlfriends have been imprisoned to find healing while sharing their pain. And gradually, through the power of prayer and the strength that comes with trusting in God's promises, each man discovers a freedom and a refuge he never knew existed...and renewed promise for a future filled with faith and love.
