Hollywood power couple DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good candidly share about their courtship and marriage, and the key to their success—waiting.Columbia Tristar Pictures executive DeVon Franklin and award-winning actress Meagan Good have learned sometimes all we can do is wait for "the one" to come into our lives.

I highly recommend this book. In fact i will probably buy it later on as a remind through out my celibacy journey as a reference guide. They give great examples and most importantly great answers to "why you should do this" and tips on how it can be done.

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.

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