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. 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.

Gods timing is everything; timing can be our friend or our enemy. (To everything there is a season, and a purpose under the heaven.) Ecclesiastes 3:1 We must operate by Gods timetable and not ours. Waiting is a choice. We cannot afford to miss Gods timing because if we do, we will be out of sync and divine order. The clock is ticking and it is countdown, 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 minute before midnight. Midnight is a crucial hour and it represents all the negativity in our lives; but midnight also represents for the believers that it is officially the dawning of a new day, a fresh start, a new beginning, a breakthrough and a turnaround. A date with destiny and purpose is having a prophetic word spoken over your life, which manifests your promise. To God be the Glory for all the great things he as done. The year 2010 has been a spiritual journey for me, a journey of awareness and discovery. Awareness of the hidden things on the inside of me called creativity. I have discovered a new level of love for my Heavenly Father. While waiting inside the incubator I have learned to push pass the pain and worship, praise and glorify my Father. During this time I developed a more intimate relationship with the Father. I know him as Abba, Father and Daddy, and he knows me as his sweet precious handmaiden daughter. My heavenly Father is the one who validates and sets his approval on our lives. Now I truly know who I am and whose I am and because I am intimate with my heavenly Father, I am free to be me. It has all been Worth The Wait.
