Picture
Gizelle Bryant and Jermaine Sain at the Bronner Brothers International Beauty Show in Atlanta.
​​After marrying her college sweetheart, Ginger Williams gave up her own professional dreams to help her husband follow his dream of building a megachurch. It’s not long before Ginger and her husband, Jeremy, turn a small D.C. church into a burgeoning empire....catapulting the couple into a popular powerhouse. But with a bigger spotlight comes more temptation...and the power is corrupting Jeremy in ways Ginger never imagined. When she seeks the advice of her peers on the First Ladies’ Council, she’s shocked when they tell her to accept Jeremy’s infidelities so she doesn’t damage the church and affect the many business opportunities coming their way. With every part of her life—family faith, and finances—hanging in the balance, Ginger must decide if she will continue to live in the shadow of the sins of her husband...or face life on the other side of the pulpit.
When We Speak TV would like to congratulate Gizelle Bryant on the publication of her book and we wish her the best in all her endeavors.
