ABOUT THE CHURCH GIRL

As a child, Mary Uwanna believed in the power of faith and love, and loved to tell stories of Princes.  Everything changes when she loses her parents in one night, and is left to care for her three brothers.  In a climate of corruption and immorality, even the Church was not a safe refuge for sixteen year old, Mary.  She makes a decision that threatens to steal her destiny, until she meets her Prince.

Ifeanyi Chukwueke is not the Prince Mary had envisioned.  He is a bad boy, with a reputation for breaking hearts.  But his heart is set on Mary.  Faced with her haunting past, he makes a decision to love her regardless…  Until his own past comes to threaten their happily ever after – time and again!

The Church Girl is a story about a love that was destined, but tried in every way.  Mary and Ifeanyi must learn that in order to live, they must first die to self, as their love and faith is tested through many trials and temptations.

Follow this roller-coaster ride about a love that overcomes all, that will grow your faith, or lead you to the One who holds the keys of Life.

  1. I started reading Book 1 and I literally could not put it down!!! The story was captivating!!! I laughed, cried, was sad, worried, full of hope and at the very end, had tears of joy running down my face… I finished it in a few hours and was hungry to begin Book 2!

    I cannot put in words how I felt! I was sooooo blessed!!! When I finally finished reading book 2, I was just led to pray and I asked God to give me a word because the books really spoke to me and by the next morning, the LORD gave me a powerful word!!!

    The books are amazing!!! I’m getting all my friends to read it – I really pray that as
    Many that need to read this book are led to it in Jesus name.

    God bless you Ufuoma – thank you for allowing yourself to be used by God. I bless God for this gift He gave you and I pray for
    More anointing in your life in Jesus name, amen!

  2. *THE RIGHT KNOWLEDGE OF GOD SETTLES PEACE!*

    Sis, permit me to start like this, I must let you know I am done reading book 1&2 of *#TheChurchGirl* is also important you know, that I found the story amazing, beautiful and challenging.

    Seriously, from the choices of words used, down to figure of speech, especially the use of suspense and imagery was wonderful.

    It is challenging because am convinced that, it’s not only a life story you put into books that looks like a fiction but I must say it’s very touching, and for a single guy like me, who is planning on the next level in life, I got alot to learn you know! and the book did justice to some matters troubling me.

    The more better part of it, is that, it all points us to the cross of calvary that only Jesus can save.

    It will be pertinent for you to know that I recommend you make sure it’s put into play like in a movie… So that it can reach out to more amorphous audience. I tell you many married and singles needs it.

    Thanks for sharing this book with me, I will forever be grateful.

    Your little boy, Isaac Yoma.

  3. Reading these books will definitely bless you but more importantly, the whole book will make you reevaluate your life, your being, your purpose and your value. Thinking about everything Mary went through and still her witness for God transformed a whole new person and literally everyone who came in contact with her. Sure we cannot all be Mary but this made me think about my inner ‘Mary’ and if i even let her out to play. The verses, the lessons, the words, the dialogue…..everything was so carefully thought out and flowed so beautifully that reading the book was such a joy….even for me and i have read the physical one twice, the ebook, the blog version, etc. – keep thinking I’m going to miss something and i would hate to….😃 @ufuomaee You did a great job on this and i know it’s His Spirit working in and through you….i wish i had all the means to get this in audio and film so we can reach a million more people than it already has, but just know you have my support forever….in kind and when i can…in cold hard currency as well. Can’t wait for all the other things you are birthing.🤗🤗🤗

  4. This book is amazing. I love the fact that it was so real and it touched every part of the human experience. i finished part 1 in one day, and passed it on to my mum. Now i am done with part 2 and i am thinking oh oh where is part 3.
    It is important never to judge people and also not to hold people at a very high pedestal because man can fall. I have a better understanding of life and God and its amazing how the book is helping me re-define love.
    I also have a better understanding of waiting on God for the right time. I mean Ifeayin proposed three times.. lol. I guess three times a charm.
    I posted some excerpts of the book 2 on Instagram and i have people asking for info on where to get the back.
    I thoroughly enjoyed the read. You are a great writer and you should write more books. I pray that God give you the grace.

    God bless you

    1. God bless you soooo much! This just made my day! I am so pleased to read your feedback. Thank you. Please, follow me on Instagram @Ufuomaee or reply back with your handle if you want me to follow you. I’m so honoured, thanks!

  5. Really I was still enjoying the book 2 late into midnight, until I got the word the end oh how I wished it could continue. We are waiting for book 3. I will also suggest this can be converted into a movie as God directs. It is really a blessing even to generations yet unborn.
    The Church Girl has an irresistible spirit in it that once you pick up the book you just have to read it to the very end, enjoying the twist and turns, hoping some things never happened then you realise some are dreams and you breathe a sigh of relief. Thank God for the grace and anointing upon your life to put up a great piece inspired from God. Keep basking in God’s grace.

  6. I won this free book from @ufuomaee ,it was an answer from God to my current situation. The characters in this Christian Romance depicts the theme of Strength, temptations, weakness,hurt,forgiveness submission, grace, salvation and learning to wait and from God for the next step even when u seem so sure but you have to follow God’s timing. The love Ifeanyi and Mary shared was tested through fire and water and they came out stronger. I learnt that it takes moreThe love Ifeanyi and Mary shared was tested through fire and water and they came out stronger. I learnt that it takes more than love for a marriage to work,it takes determination to submit to God and make him the center of the marriage to make it work. The book opened my eyes to sexual abuse from places we never expected when Victims are vulnerable and are scared to speak due to fear and stigmatisation, the author through biblical principles and divine inspiration dealt with these issues and proVictims are vulnerable and are scared to speak due to fear and stigmatisation, the author through biblical principles and divine inspiration dealt with these issues and proffered ways to get help through her main characters. #ThechurchGirl is a must read for everyone to learn about choosing right, how to heal from hurt patience, forgiveness and salvation.When God gives us a word, he goes all out to fulfill it because His integrity is at stake, not even a dot of his promises would go unfulfilled -that’s if we let Him do it. God’s love for us is intentional and cannot be shaken because the price has been paid in full. Well done @ufuomaee and God bless you. I pray for as many souls in despair that they would be able to receive help in time of need and come in to the understanding and enjoy the intensity of God’s love . To my fellow singles in the house, hold on and hold out, trust and love God till love finds you. Shalom!

  7. I am so late in reviewing this book!!! I don’t even know where to start from. Let me thank the Author @ufuomaee for gifting me book 1 and 2 of The Church girl which I won during a quiz. I was also privileged to be at the launch which was so awesome.

    The Church girl is a must read for everyone. Some parts of this book brought tears to my eyes. The storyline is so real, emotional and relatable. I love the twist and suspense. I almost got an heart attack when I though Mary and Ifeanyi finally succumbed to fornication!!!! I jumped with joy when it turned out to be a dream. I wish I read this book some 7years ago!!! Thank you Ma for allowing God use you this way.

    The church girl is a christian romance centred on Ifeanyi– A player and Mary-the church girl with a shady secret. They surprisingly fell in love. Their love was tested, passed through fire, temptation, backlash, but with God; they came out strong.

    This book teaches salvation, patience, holiness, forgiveness, letting go of the past, trusting and waiting on God, faith, putting God first in all you do. It still beats my imagination how Mary was able to forgive her Pastor that sexually and emotionally abused her for years!!! I sincerely wish the Pastor did not die, he should have stayed alive to suffer for his evil deeds. truly ‘Most of our oppressors are cowards, they just take advantage of our innocence and fear’ How her faith remained strong even through all her trials and tribulations. So many people who find themselves in Mary’s situation would do everything possible to stay away from God and live a wayward life!!!!

    #TheChurchGirl opened my eyes to the fact that God is needed and interested in ALL and EVERY of our affairs. Imagine Mary praying and asking God if she should attend a wedding!!!! Even Ifeanyi prays and asks God for direction. I learnt to depend solely on God, if I am close to him and faithful, he will speak to me when I need to hear him.

    To conclude, I would say ‘Life is about falling; living is getting back up’. No matter what happens to you in life, no matter your bad past or how many times you fall, please pick yourself up, never live in guilt. God loves you and would forgive you if you repent. Stay focused, Do not rush love and surround yourself with good and positive people. Do not let loneliness, pleasure or pressure drive you to make wrong choices. God is your only lifeline, cling unto him. Love genuinely. Family is everything, stay close. Please forgive fast and impact lives positively.

    My middle name is Mary and my prayer for myself is ‘Lord bring out the ‘Mary’ in me, let me depend on you solely, help me stay firm and fight temptations’

    Ps: I have been telling everyone around me about this book. I can’t keep it to myself nor get it off my mind. My colleague who I gave the book even reviewed it before me!!! Am looking forward to having the softcopy. This book must be made into a movie!!!

    1. Oh, my dear, you have blessed me! Thanks for this amazing and DETAILED review of my book. You revealed a lot, but I hope it inspires a lot of people to go ahead and get their copies to know and learn more. God bless you xoxo

  8. Highly recommended get your copy!
    So i bought Part 1 and 2 of the book ‘the church girl’ to support a friend (wasn’t sure i’d have enough time to read them) but i was done with both books in 3 days, even with my busy schedule.

    I normally don’t read Nigerian authors but i was blown away by these books. The characters are grounded, dialogue doesn’t seem forced, the plot…like a roller coaster ride with lots of unexpected twists and turns.

    Don’t be fooled by the name, its not overly religious or ‘churchy’ and is not afraid to tackle topics or explore areas that some churches tip toe around.

    Overall its been a while i read something that has affected on me on an emotionally level( these days i have been doing a lot of Stephen king and James Patterson)and normally won’t read anything that doesn’t come close.

    Its simplicity draws you in and the author takes you on a journey that makes you re-evaluate your life values and choices.

    I didn’t expect to be knocked off my feet when i read ‘the church girl’ and yes i wasn’t. I was blown away.

  9. The Church Girl. I recommend this book for everyone to read both single and married. When I got the book even with my busy schedule I still read it and I was done within two days even my mum was like this book has captivated your interest yup it has and I can still read over and over again so I highly recommend it for everyone to have and not only. have read the book. Don’t lemme talk much get it and discover it. Thank you @ufuomaee for birthing this book.
