You Just Don’t Understand
There was a time when Bishop Derrick Anthony Garrett had some hard lessons to learn. His wife threatened to divorce him. The deacons of his church wanted to replace him. His children nearly hated him.
But after some soul-searching, his life seems to be on the mend—at least on the outside. His congregation has grown to more than 2,000 members. He is now a respected senior pastor and bishop who appears to be a successful man of God. Despite it all, Derrick is truly happy for the first time in his life. But when a serious health problem arises, he chooses to hide his situation from his family. Now that things are starting to get better, he doesn’t want to burden them with his illness.
His wife’s salon is doing well and his son, Damon, and his wife, Alicia, are youth pastors. His daughter, Deanna, is getting married. To the casual observer, the Garretts have it all.
But when each family member has secrets to keep and no one to talk to, even the happiest family may suffer.
