    I believe the message of waiting on God to mature your relationship is a superb one.It was honest and refreshing for the authors to discuss abstinence and self control regarding sex and marriage. A good book to recommend to the young and the old.

    I actually have not finished reading this book yet but have enjoyed it so much so far! I decided to buy it after watching a couple interviews with Meagan and Devon speaking about their book and their marriage. A lot of resources about waiting until marriage only talk about the why and not the how's, which this book does discusses. Like someone else mentioned, the text is brutally honest which is quite refreshing. It's also comforting for a new Christian like me to read about a couple that had not waited in the past but still managed to reach a point in their lives where they could decide to be celibate.

    The Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love is a fabulous read. The authors are DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good. What a beautiful couple! Their faith is so inspiring. They tell why it is important to wait to have sex until marriage.

    I think the book would be great for everyone who is not married, including teenagers who are contemplating sex.

    I highly recommend this book!

    100+ stars.

    DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good in their new book, The Wait published by Howard Books gives us A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love.

    From the Inside Jacket Cover: Hollywood power couple DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good candidly share about their courtship and marriage, and the key to their successwaiting.

    President/CEO of Franklin Entertainment and former Sony 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. They spent years crossing paths but it wasnt 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 todays societyabstain from sex until they were married.

    In The Wait, DeVon and Meagan share the life-changing message that waitingrather than rushing a relationshipcan help you find the person youre 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 everythingfrom dating to sexcan transform relationships, allowing you to find a deep connection based on patience, trust, and faith.

    Considering that Hollywood is not known for its portrayal of chaste women, then the fact that Franklin is a Corporation executive and Good is an actress makes this book all the more spectacular. This is the way it used to be. Everything that Hollywood is portraying in the movies and on the TV is not true. Franklin and Good are a married couple and they have written The Wait to show us how a dating relationship should be. And it turns out that abstaining from sex actually fortifies your relationship. If you are not married then I recommend this book for you. If you have children then I say that they should be read this book. I believe that what this couple have to say will benefit them highly. It is a marvelous story.
