Zakia Wilkes feels emptiness in her life, even with a wonderful career and a new husband. In a world of delight and sorrow there must be an ingredient that brings happiness.
Nikki Riley is a divorced mother with three. She is saved and decides to leave Virginia and take her family to Atlanta. She puts her trust in serving God.
Three stories weave around a community in Richmond, Virginia. Zakia is in another marriage with a child from her previous one. Her first relationship was not planned and now her second feels better. When she suddenly finds comfort within her congregation, the salvation she experiences begins to intimidate her new marriage. Nikki believes her new move will be a fresh start. Her relocation to Atlanta sends her to a church she has viewed on television. She had no idea she would be faced with confrontation with much discord that threatens to test her loyalty in God. The third lends to the smaller children. It demonstrates that no matter whether young or old, the Lord is always there with his saving grace for all that will hear. Throughout the life and enduring trials of all the Christians, they discover with continued faith in God, all things are possible.
Saved Folk in the House is a reflection on genuine Christians living in homes filled with God’s love. They have real concerns make errors, have families but continue to put their love, faith and trust in the Lord. Ms. Beverly incorporates the Lord in her words and shows how without Him in our life we would be nothing. She blends strong women in this tale that shows enthusiasm and salvation within their home as they endure momentous times that everyone has in their everyday life. With interesting characters, it is worth reading.
