Columbia Tristar Pictures executive DeVon Franklin and actress Meagan Good have learned sometimes all we can do is wait for "the one" to come into our lives. They spent years crossing paths but it wasn't until they were thrown together while working on the film Jumping the Broom that their storybook romance began. Faced with starting a new relationship and wanting to avoid potentially devastating relationship pitfalls, DeVon and Meagan chose to do something almost unheard of in today's society -- abstain from sex until they were married. In The Wait, DeVon and Meagan share the life-changing message that waiting -- rather than rushing a relationship -- can help you find the person you're meant to be with. Filled with candid his-and-hers accounts of the most important moments of their relationship, and practical advice on how waiting for everything -- from dating to sex -- can transform relationships, allowing you to find a deep connection based on patience, trust, and faith. Franklin and Good spent years crossing paths, but were thrown together while working on a film and wanted to avoid potentially devastating relationship pitfalls. They chose to adhere to God's will, and abstain from sex until they were married. They discovered that waiting, rather than rushing a relationship, can help you find the person you're meant to be with

"Often we conspire with people to keep them from showing us who they really are."

I had my eye on DeVon Franklin & Meagan Good's book, The Wait for a while. A guy at my church was reading it and he highly recommended it; and most of the reviews about it online were all positive too. I requested a copy of it through the library 2 months ago and just got my hands on it a little over a week ago. And let me just say, this is a really, really, really good book about the benefits of celibacy until marriage!

DeVon & Meagan are straightforward and honest about what being celibate for purpose of honoring God with our bodies means and what it doesn't mean, as well as how they each coped with the temptations of sex in their own dating lives. A lot of what they say in The Wait reiterated what I've already been doing and what I believe about dating & marriage. However, they also gave me some new ideas about how I can continue to grow and mature in Christ during my wait.

Whether you're new to celibacy or have been celibate for a few years, I definitely believe that this book will renew your hope about meeting the man or woman that God wants you to marry.
