Publisher's Summary

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. It's a story 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.


What the Critics Say

Strong book for Christians

I really liked that this book was written by two attractive, successful, and educated people. Being celibate is not about manipulation, or trying something different, it is about having full faith in God that honoring and obeying his wishes will bring you the person you are meant to be with. Being celibate will bring you peace. It will take away the shame, anxiety, guilt and pain that is often associated with having sex. Also, it will remove anyone in your life who is looking to use you but realizes that they cannot. I am very happy to have read this.

Powerful and Inspirational!

This book confirmed many of my thoughts on waiting to have sex before marriage. While at the same time- it gave me more to think about. The wait is not just about sex- but is also about waiting and being patient in everything- and while doing so- working on yourself in the meantime. Become whole and learn yourself. I love this and highly recommend it to anyone else self reflecting and building a closer relationship with God. Be blessed.
