The Secret Lives of Church Ladies, Deesha Philyaw

If you’re like most of the Black women I know, then you grew up in church or have some type of connection to it. Whether you were a PK, overly familiar with the pews, or are just fascinated with the lives women in the church lead–behind the facade they put on for others, you’ll find someone in this book with whom you can relate.

Church Ladies explores the lives of nine church women through four generations. Each woman grapples with who she wants to be in the world while adhering to the church’s standards and expectations for Black women.
