    1. When I completed this book I was ready to write my review I ran through it in my head and it was too much to remember and I always have these great things to say but trick myself into thinking I will recall and be able to bring it up later No such luck I was excited about this book when it came across my Facebook feed for 2 reasons 1 I decided to become celibate after my last relationship 2 This year is all about me and my self development Back to number 1 I was celibate a few years ago for a ye [...]


    2. So I just finished reading The Wait by Devon Franklin and Meagan Good and I have to say it was a pretty good read It s way then just a book about not having sex before marriage The book focuses on building your relationship with GOD , working on yourself , having FAITH and learning to be PATIENT which m not lol in order to receive the blessings that God has in store for you and to build a health strong relationship with your future Husband Wife.Which are things we could all benefit from, go out [...]


    3. ENCOURAGED This book was so good Each chapter spoke to me in a way that kept me wanting DeVon and Meagan s story is beyond inspiring The fact that they modeled the very principles on which this book stands is amazing I also love that it isn t merely a preachy wait to have sex until marriage book that makes an individual who isn t already on that journey feel bad about themselves they have both been there before, coming to celibacy after having had sexual relationships in the past, which makes i [...]


    4. TransformationalI cannot express in words, how this book has changed my perspective, and approach relationships But even so, it is changed how I see and think about myself I am now practicing The Wait for the next three years God lead And while I don t know when God will reveal my mate to me, it doesn t really matter, because The Wait is just as much about seeking me, as it is about seeking a mate The Wait has caused me to get to know a me that I never knew In turn, I am becoming the he that sh [...]


    5. I thought the book was pretty good The advice they gave was rather vague I wish they would have went into detail about their struggles to remain celibate or things like that Devon was celibate for like 10 years I wish he would have went into how he remained strong and some of the temptations he encountered dating women or when he met his wife The advice was kinda vague and got kind of repetitive I would have loved for the book to be personal See my full review here sophie sticatedmom 2016 02



    6. I love this couple and believe they are a strong force to be reckoned with in the film industry There are great strategies and view points made, although I do not agree with all of them I encourage anyone who reads this book to also read their bible and back up the information they learn.


    7. The Wait is written from 2 perspectives one being for those who have already chosen to be celibate and for those who have not seriously considered it The couple does not shy away from attributing their decision for celibacy to their faith in God Before you roll your eyes, I believe there are still great takeaways for those of alternative beliefs This is NOT a you re going to hell if you re sleeping with your man read.It s about how withholding sex in a relationship helps you to get to know someo [...]


    8. 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 I received this book from Howard books and exchange for my honest opinion, which w [...]


    9. I did like the portions where they share their experiences in reference to dating and knowing they were meant to be together per se There was much material I am well familiar with already or read somewhere else Your goal is to fall in love not with the body, face, clothes, or title but the person the spirit underneath That s who you ll still love madly in fifty years page 209 This sounds great, but in reality, we are attracted to the person in some physical sense before we know the spiritual bei [...]


    10. This book was a gift that was right on time Valentine s Day and I put off reading it for quite some time but I m glad I finally opened it I ve enjoyed spending time with this book it s a good read reassuring, encouraging and honest I can certainly see myself revisiting this book.


    11. I can t say enough how much I enjoyed it Have your highlighter and sticky notes ready because there are tons of knowledge in this book that can help us all in various areas of our lives.

    13. I was very shocked to only find this book average Despite a few tips on how to maintain celibacy,this did not really blow me away or offered any significant solutions how to overcome temptation Granted it was not preachy,it just felt forced,almost if the author wanted to define the meaning in a short amount of time Just how many times,do you have to keep repeating the purpose of why you wrote the book It was clear from the title,so to continue to eleborate was unecessary.Maybe that is trivial to [...]


    14. I had already been practicing the Wait and at first was reluctant to read this book However, The Wait has reaffirmed my decision to be abstinent I m a stickler for terms used and would never say I was celibate, but the text offers insight into why they chose to refer to their wait as celibacy over abstinence The reasoning makes sense This book has also been uplifting and has offered insight on the purposes of waiting, it s so much than abstaining from sex My commitment and dedication to remai [...]


    15. DNF.I knew fairly early on this wasn t going to be the book for me Finally, as we said good night for what must have been the tenth time, we had our first kiss As our lips touched, we could feel the Spirit of God surround and embrace us I wasn t sure what to expect from this book, but thought it would be a bit different The religious undertones are quite extensive I guess I was thinking it would be a modern take on choosing to wait before marriage and that wasn t the case Won a copy through


    16. I appreciated the candid insights that Meagan Goode and Devon Franklin shared about their relationship It was refreshing to read about another couple who decided to commit to waiting in order to build a solid relationship The book offered practical and encouraging advice that made sense Every young adult should read this book and save themselves a lifetime of heartache and heartbreak My husband and I practiced The Wait before it was a thing Twenty four years later, we are the best of friends and [...]


    17. I really enjoyed it because of the message it s delivering It s encouraging to hear another couple s journey in waiting and know that it is possible, despite challenges and struggles with staying the course until marriage This was from the male point of view, I would ve liked to hear from the female perspective so it had an equal take Still really good information nonetheless.


    18. Amazing book that will definitely help me with my walk with God Through this book God allowed them to minister to me A new favorite book of mine.



    19. To be completely clear, because they try to dismiss in the preface, this book is predominantly intended for a black, Christian reader There is a lot of filler and redundancy This book could have easily been half as long In Chapter 2, for example, all of the good points, like why you do The Wait yes it takes over 50 pages to list reasons come at the end of the chapter in a quick list Sadly, they were actually really great points It would have been a engaging read if the those points were spread [...]


    20. This was a very insightful read with a lot of hard truths most people aren t ready or willing to face Meagan and DeVon raised very good points I loved how they made it clear that The Wait isn t ONLY about abstaining from sex, it also revolves around self improvement and getting to know yourself better and learning to love yourself and improving your relationship with God before you commit to someone else Their advice and strategies were solid though I didn t agree with everything they said, none [...]


    21. Its the first book based on love and relationships that I fell in love with Totally deserves 5 s Devon and Megan beautifully and authentically share their dating love journey While reading, I could not help but be in a space of serenity , tranquility , joy and love They definetly poured out their heart in this book If 2018 is your year of Authenticity, Wholeness, Joy and Making those Relationships count, this is a book to grab and read If 2018 is A year of Growth i.e Becoming A Better Version [...]


    22. A refreshing take on the topic of relationships and sex While I didn t agree with the authors on everything, I so appreciated their candidness and real talk, especially coming from a couple inside the entertainment industry I m not familiar with either s work, so I was able to read without having preconceived notions or expectations I received a lot of encouragement from their story and will be sharing this with friends I look forward to reading DeVon s other books as well.


    23. The book was ok Practical knowledge, a little repetitive but if you re in need of a boost encouragement to practice celibacy this maybe the book for you I wish they had gone in depth about their celibacy walk and experiences but it was a good light read.


    24. Reading got interrupted because there was somethings I had to deal with but alas the books is finished and I am reading to write my review.This was an excellent book and definitely goes on the re read list I know I have read some reviews of people grumbling because they really wanted a blow by blow book on their courtship which honestly I would not have been interested in reading because I do believe somethings need to remain private and only between the couple, close family and close friends No [...]


    25. I cannot give this book high enough praise Underneath the deceptively simple language of the Wait are vital counter culture messages that facilitate a much happier and healthier life for singles The authors debunk the Disney myth of soul mates, challenge women to see themselves as complete people without men, note how high school dress codes reinforce the message to teenage boys that they are not accountable for their thoughts or actions, and celebrate the possibilities for unmarried people who [...]


    26. Wow Where do I start with this review This book was full of so much knowledge for me The Wait is about a couple Meagan Good and her husband DeVon Franklin who decided to be celibate before marriage They had seen each other a lot working in the same industry, but did not know until God told them they would be married I love how they both had their individual walk with God before getting together The choice to be celibate seemed like it would have been easy, but they both stated it was hard The at [...]


    27. I LOVED THIS BOOK This book can help people on so many levels than just in romantic relationships If you are a Christian single person who is in a rut in their dating life or ready for a shake up in your life, I highly recommend this book Even if you aren t sure about celibacy, this book gives good insight into all facets of a single person s life, from finances, career, personal growth, etc, and how our deep, personal pain can affect our growth in all aspects not just in romantic relationships [...]


    28. Part II m writing this review in parts because I read it for myself to prepare for a book discussion and relationship series with the young adults at my church As a Christian adult who grew up in church, I didn t learn anything new that I haven t heard for 20 years.Part 2AFTER, I started reading this book for myself really as just leadership prep, I started seeing a guy Oh darn Actually, oh, good He said he d read the book He went out and bought it and we re discussing it in parts So, NOW, in a [...]
