Dating and waiting book
This book is a delightful and humorous blend of storytelling and deep Biblical insights.

We live in a society that puts more effort into extravagant one-day weddings than preparing to be a wife forever. It’s really easy to get distracted by the idea of being a beautiful bride who is the center of attention.
I’d hoped that I’d meet my husband and get married in my 20’s, but that didn’t happen. In fact, my sisters will sometimes say, “Remember that guy you went out with? ” Half the time I can’t remember, and I swear they are getting me confused with one of their friends, but deep down I know they are not. I had a lot of “ME” pity parties on the phone with my mom, and many tears after every break-up.
If you are a twenty-something female and looking for an honest reflection on “love, lust, dating and waiting” from a single lady’s perspective, this is the book for you.
