Shauntae Randall knows she’s not smart or talented at much of anything, but she also knows she’s gorgeous and can handle herself around a man. So, she’s made a career of it. She thought she had struck gold a few years back when she was lucky enough to get pregnant by Devon Wright. She knew they’d get married, he would take care of her and her baby, and she’d be set for life.

What Shauntae didn’t know is that it’s much harder to keep a man than it is to catch him. Now she’s lost custody of the child and the child support check and has to go back to hustling.

Shauntae is lucky enough to get herself pregnant by Gary Jackson. She knows she has to figure out how to be a good wife to Gary and a good mother to their child to keep herself in his big, fancy house and his big, fancy car. She has to learn to talk “proper” and say all the right things at the right time. The absolute worst thing is that Shauntae must learn how to be a “church girl.”

When issues with Gary’s ex-wife and kids threatens Shauntae’s “get married and stay married” plan, it’s actually God that helps her out. Shauntae decides that instead of hustling God, she might want to get to know Him. But can an ex-hustler really shed her old ways and become a true Christian, and a good wife and mother?

Devon Wright hasn’t considered being in a serious relationship for the last seven years. Not since he met Quartisha Shauntae Randall – aka Satan’s little sister – who is, unfortunately, his baby mama. He’s not the kind of guy that can live without a woman, so he finds himself in a string of short-term relationships, breaking heart after heart – without meaning to, of course. He tells the women he dates that he’s not looking for something serious, but somehow, they keep falling for him and wanting something more.

Devon’s parents and best friend, Charles, who used to be Atlanta’s most notorious player, keep telling him it’s time to get into a real relationship with the right woman and get married. When his six year-old daughter, Brianna, begins to ask him when he’s gonna get her a “real mama,” Devon begins to wonder if it’s time to try getting serious again.

When Charles introduces him to the best friend of the woman who convinced him to turn in his player card, Devon is intrigued. Cassandra Parker is smart, sassy, and sexy, but the catch is, she’ll only get into a relationship that’s headed toward marriage. The more Devon gets to know her, the more he realizes that she’s the right woman for him. But will his past heartbreak, crazy baby mama drama, and commitment issues keep him from making her Mrs. Wright?

Monica Harris Day’s perfect world begins a downward spiral the day she comes home to find her husband in bed with another man.  After confronting Kevin, her husband of two years, Monica discovers he’s had a lifelong struggle with homosexuality that began at the age of ten, when he was molested by a deacon in the church.

For years, Kevin has sought deliverance, crying out to God to make him straight.  He explains his deceit by saying he truly thought he had been delivered when he married Monica, but was afraid to share his past with her for fear she wouldn’t marry him.  Kevin begs Monica’s forgiveness and wants to save their marriage.  He is convinced that God has indeed delivered him from the spirit of homosexuality and that the one time mistake was just his past coming back to haunt him. Their pastor offers them marital counsel but Monica suspects that his real concern is in maintaining his mega-ministry.  The membership has grown to 10,000 since Kevin became the minister of music.

When the pastor swears them to secrecy and urges Monica to stay in the marriage, she thinks Bishop Walter isn’t willing to risk the potential scandal and church division that would result if the truth is leaked to the congregation. My Soul Cries Out is a compassionate look at the issue of Christians struggling with homosexuality and the redemptive power of God to bring deliverance.
