Publisher's Summary

Why Would God Care About My Love Life?
From the woman behind the screenplay and novel, Never the Bride, comes a roller coaster of a love story with God. Cheryl McKay pulls no punches about what it's really like to be single, with your age creeping up, and no end in sight to the wait for love and marriage.
It seems that many years ago, God asked Cheryl to surrender the pen she was using to write her love story. All He wanted was carte blanche. No problem, right? Cheryl tentatively conceded - that is, until it became apparent that the Almighty had no intention of conforming to her writing schedule, much less the tick of her biological clock. In fact, He blew every deadline she ever attempted to set.
As romance seemed to pass Cheryl by, she couldn't help but question: Could God really be trusted to bring her the love of her life?
Written during a long wait, this book opens up Cheryl's painfully honest, personal journals. She explores what it's like to enlist in God's Marriage Boot Camp, and how to survive singlehood year after solitary year. She wrestles with her Creator over multiple best friends that never see her "that way." Then there are those lists of what she wanted - you know, the ones she revised a billion times then laminated for safekeeping. She watches, bewildered, as much younger women find love that seems to elude her.
Through it all, she falls head over heels for a God who proves Himself to be as resistant to her controls as He is faithful beyond her wildest dreams.
Are you still waiting? Have you lost hope? Venture to victory with a woman who knows just how hard it is to wait for the day when you are Finally the Bride. This audiobook includes a collection of real-life, God-written love stories by such authors as Squire Rushnell and Louise DuArt (God Winks Series, Couples Who Pray), and Victorya Michaels Rogers (Finding a Man Worth Keeping).

A must read for all Christian singles, men & women

What did you love best about Finally the Bride: Finding Hope While Waiting?

This book should be a 'must read' for Christian singles, men and women. There were a number of things that I loved about this book. One that the author was brutally honest and brave to write her own experiences. This is a tell all from 39 year old Cheryl waiting for "The One." To many Christians, this may seem difficult, but Cheryl is spot on when she explains the reasons for waiting before marriage, listening to God's voice, limiting friendships with men who don't commit and the virtue of chastity. I also liked that Chris, her husband shares his story at the end, apologizing for doing what he did to so many women, stringing them along, which is why I feel both men and women should read this.
It will also be enlightening, so that men can understand what women go through, how hurt they are by their thoughtless actions. Cheryl's arguments are straightforward. The love stories at the end of the book, are particularly good as they reflect on different God written love stories. Her account is painful at times, it did bring me to tears on occasion and I highly recommend this book. The audio version, is fantastic.


What about Shawna M. Washabaugh’s performance did you like?

Shawna brings it to life. You can tell, she loved reading it.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Cheryl thinks this is the one and all the signs point to it, and he dumps her. It made me cry. I did have tears at many moments. When she says she walks down the aisle with her dad.


Any additional comments?

This book should be marketed for men and women.
