Every woman struggles with times of waiting—for a spouse, a child, a job. In Wait and See, Wendy Pope guides readers to focus on the Person of their faith rather than the object of their wait. Pope draws on the story of King David, who was anointed king nearly twenty years before he took his throne.
This hands-on guidebook invites readers to record their own waiting discoveries. With practical suggestions and real-life stories, Pope shows readers how they can be active in the present as they hope for the future.

Cordially Barbara5 Stars Out Of 5On a scale of cotton candy to Brussels sprouts, Wait and See by Wendy Pope is a giant jawbreaker.May 26, 2017Cordially BarbaraQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5On a scale of cotton candy to Brussels sprouts, Wait and See by Wendy Pope is a giant jawbreaker. This sweet candy takes hours upon hours to get through, revealing layers of different colors and flavors. This candy trains patience.
Wendy Pope unpacks what a waiting season can be like with personal stories (her own and others). Better yet, she prompts you to consider how you can use your waiting period to prepare for the day you arrive at the eventual destination. At the end of each chapter, Pope includes a short portion that incorporates scripture reading to further support her points and encouragement.
Personally, this book helped me put a name to the uncomfortable season that I find myself in. I'm smack dab in a waiting season, and I now have active ways to grow in my wait. Pope's writing style felt like a conversation, and I appreciate that she could draw from her own experience to encourage me in mine. This is not a hurry-up-to-your-destination book. And at the end, she doesn't give you a "get out of jail free" card, but she does give you the tools to live well in your wait.
I used this book as a gentle addition to my time spent with God, and I think I worked through a chapter in 2-3 days.

I know the perfect person to gift my copy to as they are in a period of waiting. Actually, I know several people this book will fit, so I may be buying gift copies!
Ms. Pope knows about waiting. She had many periods of waiting in her life. In fact, at first as I thumbed through it, I thought it had a whiny feel, and that kind of annoyed me. I don't want to read a book about her whining about this and that and the next thing. But once I settled in to actually read the book, Ms. Pope takes the time to dissect her whines and turn them into ministering opportunities to help others who are waiting for whatever they are waiting for.
This book is a good book for anyone who maybe waiting for God to hear them and answer their prayers. Good for church libraries and Christian counselors, among others.
Joy5 Stars Out Of 5More than a "wait training" book!October 16, 2016JoyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Wait and See" is so much more than a "wait training" book; it's a book about growing in humility, surrendering self and becoming more like Jesus. With both rare and raw honesty, Wendy Pope opens her life, inviting you to respond by asking God to search your own heart for His revelation in seasons of waiting. "Wait and See" is also a call to thirst for a relationship with the Lord, becoming "so well acquainted with God" that when the time comes to act, with our minds girded with Scripture and our hearts with prayer, we will instantly and radically obey and the outcome will be "living to the fullest the life God planned for you." Wendy reminds us of the battle plan, armor and weapons needed to actively war against the enemy in our wait. We also need to recognize that God is never inactive or unresponsive when it comes to His children. He is always working and can always be trusted. Scripture, personal experience, Bible study and application combine to make this book not only a resource, but a journal in which God writes the next chapter of your story. As Wendy shares, don't rush your wait and know that God is good!
Juliana Plyler5 Stars Out Of 5There is help for our struggle as we wait!October 15, 2016Juliana PlylerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wait and See addresses a topic that pertains to us as part of our human condition. We are ALL waiting on something in our lives. This book by Wendy Pope brings together stories of real people who have gone through the waiting process, intertwined with wisdom from stories in scripture. She suggests reflective questions to examine your own current waiting experience. Since I was reading on my IPAD, it worked quite well to use a notebook for my thoughts when reflecting on the questions. Reading Wait and See not only gave me new insights into finding peace in Gods pauses and plans for my life, but has helped to give me a resource to share with others who are struggling with a wait in their lives. I finished reading this book last week and have already been able to put these very practical and easy to understand principals to work in my life. I would definitely recommend Wait and See and have already bought an extra copy to share!
