This is a summary of DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good's The Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life.
Hollywood power couple DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good candidly share about their courtship and marriage, and the key to their success - waiting.
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 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. The book is 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.

Truth in a Crunch
Yes! Celibacy is a difficult path to choose in today's society and it is incredible how DeVon and Meagan stuck by their guns to live out God in their relationship and wait until marriage... It also lends weight to their story, versus someone writing it and having not walked the road themselves. Having it laid out so simply as this, in a sharp set of points made, I would find it really helpful to bolster the spirit to stick by this chosen stance. Another perk of having it be so short is that it's more than easy to revisit time and time again to get a fortification to the heart choosing to abstain.
It was clear and just as cheerful, you can hear her smiles and concern during the sadder bits of information. Her sympathetic tone adds a dimension to the writing, giving the material more life in its emotion: you FEEL empowered and happy about choosing celibacy as much as you gain the logic to stick by it.
Not wrapping your head around finding a partner frees you up to pursue life!
