Item Description...
Melinda Johnson has always felt called to ministry. So, when her father, Bishop Langston Johnson, decides to step down after thirty years of leadership at Omega Christian Center, it seems only natural for her to take his place. But Bishop Johnson feels led by a God who has other things in mind, and to succeed him, he appoints Steven Marks-a man who is opposed to female pastors, not to mention the fact that he is Melinda's ex-fiance.

Feeling defeated, Melinda nevertheless maintains her position as the church's Missions and Community Outreach Director. Frequent interaction with the new bishop incites bitter sparring-and rekindles long-suppressed attraction, which grows only stronger when Melinda develops a relationship with Steven's precious daughter, Brianna, who's still struggling with the death of her mother.

Can Steven and Melinda set aside past pains, forgive each other, and learn to love again? Or will their opposing positions regarding women preachers keep them forever at odds?

Wonderful!  Jun 10, 2010
Vanessa Miller pulled me into the world of Melinda, Steven, Bishop Johnson and Billy.

Each character unique.

A story of forgiveness, love and salvation.

Melinda was sure of her calling to preach the word of God until coming face to face with Bishop Steven Marks,

her childhood sweetheart that broke off their wedding 10 years earlier.Bishop Marks never believed in women

preaching the gospel.

Now Bishop Marks has a sweet daughter without a mother.

Emotions were similiar to a roller coaster ride for Bishop Marks and Melinda.They show us that swallowing

our pride and admitting our mistakes is the first step to reconciliation in all relationships.

Billy is a young boy Melinda mentors with a promising basketball career.He gets caught up with the wrong

crowd and a bullet could possibly end his life.Even Billy's character teaches us that nothing is impossible with God.

A must read.





















































A must read.



 
Real Stuff, Real Issues, Real Good!  Apr 25, 2010
A broken engagement, a grieving little girl, a bitter difference of opinion...

I have to admit that I have never really considered the plight of the female preacher on the male dominated preaching circuit, so the plot of this story gave me pause and in the end taught me some things. Mainly, "It's a man's world" and it really is a struggle for the women to get in, even in the house of our Lord.

I was impressed with this story, moved by it and as I've said educated by it. Miller's writing style and voice captured me from the first page and kept me up until two a.m. finishing the last. I admit that Melinda's character worked my nerves for a while. I couldn't see why she was being so stubborn about the broken engagement from Steven when it seemed to me it was a joint decision, but the author took me there, the explanation of the depth of that broken promise and all the preceded and followed it was pure story telling mastery. I love when an author ties it all together. Every little piece. Miller did that and so much more. I actually cried.

I recommend Yesterday's Promise to anyone looking for a good read. I can hardly wait till the next book in this series is released.
 
Still Living in Yesterday, Move into Today  Apr 25, 2010
This is a different style of writing for Vanessa, in comparison to the Rain and Storm series that I loved so dearly since it covered "redemption" and anyone can turn their lives over to God.

In Yesterday's Promise, speaks about two people stubbornness, where Melinda helps her father, Bishop Johnson, mega-church ministry and expects to be next in line to lead the flock but sees it was passed on to her ex-fiance, Bishop Steve Marks. Steve Marks believes he can rekindle his love and ask a second time for the hand of Melinda Johnson in marriage. But his stubbornness is believing from listening to his father that women cannot minister in the church. I like some of the passages delivered in the book about why women are in ministry and the other views that have disregarded women to lead the flock in the congregation--to be silent in the church based on Paul's perspective in the Word of God.

We will see if they can mend their past hurts, love, and stay in the will of God regardless of their views of one another or beliefs. Can they re-commit their love-relationship for one another after they see the light of God's views on women in ministry.

Yestday's Promise an awesome read!!!  Apr 22, 2010
I have read every book by Mrs. Miller and she has not let me down!! I love the story of God's grace and His unconditional love and His forgiveness. A lot of times we hold on to things that separates us from God thinking we are doing ourselves a favor. This book really spoke to my heart! I can't wait for Tomorrow's Promise!! Mrs. Miller keep them coming!!!
 
(RAW Rating: 3.5) - Second chances  Apr 14, 2010
At a young age, Melinda Johnson knew she was called to serve the Lord by preaching his word, not as a missionary or a believer but as a pastor. She believed this would transpire when her father, Bishop Langston Johnson, retired. So you can imagine her surprise when he decided to appoint Steven Marks, a strong opponent of female pastors and her ex-fiancé, as his replacement. Steven jumps at the opportunity to replace Bishop Johnson because he needs a change for both he and his daughter, Brianna's sake. His wife died in a car accident and the grief has taken its toll on them both. He knows Melinda is not happy with his appointment but hopes they can leave their past behind them and move forward. Melinda not only sees her dreams going down the drain with his appointment; she also sees her relationship with her father and God being tested, like never before. The only good thing out of all the trouble is her budding relationship with Brianna.

Vanessa Miller's YESTERDAY'S PROMISE shows one that broken promises can open the door to tomorrow's dreams. This book also points out, there are times when you must study the Word for yourself because someone else's interpretation can lead you down the wrong road. I read this book in one night and thoroughly enjoyed it, even though Melinda got on my nerves with her stubbornness.
