A story about Kevin, an outstanding educator, who loves being with the ladies (married or single) but knows the Lord wants more from him. He is torn on what he should do. With a friend on each side trying to persuade him, what choice will he make? With family pleading to him to not give in to what is a family curse, what will it take for Kevin to see the light, or will he? How long can a man simply do what he wants? Is there a price to pay or are we in control of what we do?

"LUKE WARM SAINT" by K. L. Belvin Official release date coming soon.
Here is an excerpt from the book, "Luke Warm Saint"
“Yeah, but Ma, things are different now.”
“What do you mean, different? Talk to me, son.”
Kevin took a big swallow and decided to speak on what was bothering him.
“James said something to me last night, and I have to admit it’s been eating at me.”
“Okay. What happened?”
“He said that he and I are the same and the life I’m living is just as sinful as the life he’s living and that can’t be true, right?” Kevin’s eyes faced the ground out of fear his mother was not going to say anything favorable. Kevin’s mother placed her soft but wrinkled hands on his face and lifted his chin up from his chest. As only a mother who loves her child could, she spoke frankly as she had his whole life.
“What do you want, the good news first or the bad news?”
“You know me. Give me the bad news.”
“Well, son, James is right. You are living just as sinful as he is. You didn't need me to tell you that. So please tell me what is really bothering you.”
Kevin reluctantly asked, “So what the hell is the good news?”
“Well, the good news, son, is you have some understanding of the Lord. James doesn't, so he’s further lost than you are.”
“All right, okay, help me out here. I mean, I read the Bible, and I go to church with you on Sundays, but I am not sure I understand what you are saying? If sin is sin, there is no difference, so there can’t be a good side.”
Kevin’s mother smiled as she listened to her son. “What I’m saying is imagine both of you are drowning. James is in over his head, and you’re up to about your nose, so you are still getting a little air in. James is under the water and can’t see where he is. You still have a chance." Kevin's mother voice was soft and passionate.
Release date will be posted soon. Stay Tuned. God Bless.
