Life Defining Choices, Consequences, and Faith Building Transformation
I'm In Love With a Church Girl is based on the life of Galley Molina and the motion picture by the same name. Molina's counterpart in the story is protagonist Miles Montego; who acquired wealth as a drug trafficker but has moved on to become a legitimate investor and concert promoter. Montego, however, remains loyal to his friends who continue in their illegal pursuits. The DEA are building a case against them on drug charges and are determined to include Miles in their arrest. As a relationship with Vanessa Leon develops, Miles is confronted with his need for the fullness of life provided by becoming a faith follower of Jesus.
Ryan Phillips reaches a unique audience of readers from a contemporary culture with an insight and understanding that establishes her inimitable writing style. I'm In Love With a Church Girl is no exception. The medium of fiction is used as a platform to alert at risk youth to danger and consequences of wrong choices. A better choice is offered; a surrender to a life of faith and allowing God to take charge of their life.
Phillips understands the art and elements of good storytelling; a fast moving plot, intrigue, romance, conflict, and resolution. I'm In Love With a Church Girl is an action packed story with a strong redemptive message.
