Tim Garrett is youth pastor at Bellewood Fellowship Church. His ultimate personal goal is to become a pastoral counselor. He has a strong faith and close personal relationship with God, but he has issues with anger management that interfere with his personal and professional life. A few teens in Tim's high school youth group will go to any lengths to test his patience. Although Tim leans heavily on God and prays for God's direction in overcoming his irrepressible anger, events evoking his quick temper are affecting his reputation and his position as youth pastor.
Roxanne Ratner is a beautiful young hairdresser whose flawless appearance is a compulsion. Her urgency to appear impeccable stems from painful events in her past. These tendencies have become her shield, her way to circumvent similar situations that have caused her serious doubts regarding her image and identity. Her misconception has cost her significantly but as a new Christian she has an open heart and a strong faith in God. She volunteers to help with some of the youth activities at Bellewood Fellowship Church, and as she and Tim work together an undeniable attraction forms.
June Foster is a new author for me, and I had no idea what to expect from her book, "Bellewood Book Two: As We Forgive." What a pleasant surprise to discover that this author has created Christian Reality Fiction containing both romance and personal conflict! Her characters are realistic and believable with human frailties, failings, and displaying the need for God's grace and forgiveness in their lives. Realistic hopes and dreams of personal fulfillment are an important aspect in this story. Overcoming obstacles, temptation and personal struggles are important aspects that are dealt with realistically. Ms. Foster has successfully woven the stories of two young adults struggling with significant painful issues as they look to God for direction and forgiveness. The blending of realitistic events and faith and love of God bring these characters through some consequential misunderstandings. I have not read Book One in this series, but after reading "As We Forgive," I will definitely be reading it as well as Book Three. I found the book to be very successful as a stand alone, however. I highly recommend this book to all who enjoy Christian fiction.

Wow, if there was ever a person who needed to catch a break it is Tim Garrett. Recognizing and trying to work through the anger issues he has, it was probably not the best idea for him to be working with teenagers. However one teen seems intent on causing him as much trouble as possible. Johnny is out to make his life miserable, and he is succeeding.
Enter Roxane Ratner, a young pretty woman in her mid twenties, she has caught the eye of Pastor Tim, but he is very cautious knowing his past issues, and having had a relationship that ended very badly. Roxy, is a new Christian, and she has her own issues, dealing with abandonment by her father during her childhood. Shopping and charging too many things on her charge accounts is her way of compensating, believing if she looks good, if her makeup is perfect and her hair and clothes up to date and stylish, she will be accepted.
The attraction between the two is very intense, perhaps too intense at times. It is very interesting to see how they handle their attraction, in a Godly manner, but it is also heartbreaking sometimes, you just want to shake them both. LOL.
This book is true to June's writing style, she doesn't mince around issues. She faces them head on, bringing to light that Christian's are not perfect people fitting into the mold that others would try to place them in. They are humans who each face struggles that everyone else face. They have anger issues, they overspend, they feel abandoned. All issues that many people in the world face everyday. June writes a story showing the downfalls that often take place, however what I love is they keep getting up and trying to do the right thing!! A great story, and familiar friends are in this story too. 197pages $5.99 ebook 5 stars
