Review

After 22 years of marriage, Lady In Waiting has given me a sense of security in Christ that I never experienced before. This book helped me realize that my earthly father, my husband, or anyone else could not provide security--only God can. What a freeing principle--not only for me, but also for my husband! Now my marriage is better than ever because I no longer have unrealistic expectations of him! -- Jimmie Davis, Coordinator of Deaf Ministry, First Baptist Church in Atlanta

I highly recommend Lady In Waiting to any woman with a passion for finding God's perspective on her life and future. Lady In Waiting provides great biblical teaching along with practical illustrations to apply to everyday challenges in being God's woman." -- Nancy Wilson, Associate National Director, Campus Crusade for Christ

Waiting is one of the most difficult aspects of being a woman in today's society. In Lady In Waiting we are given a set of principles derived from biblical truth and psychological insights that will challenge both the single and the married woman. --Dr Elizabeth Francisco, Professor, Trinity International University

I first read this book when my husband and I were still in a dating relationship, before our marriage. The teachings in this book helped me to keep my focus on the most important relationship in my life--my relationship with Jesus. We women can have a tendency to allow our fellowship with the Lord to lapse when we meet a special man and the Lord begins to take second place in our lives. This book was a powerful reminder to me that even AFTER you meet Mr. Right, it's my relationship with my Lord that must still take precedence. This book helped me to keep my mind, heart, AND body pure for my husband-to-be. Now that I've been married five years, the lessons learned from Debby and Jackie are still applicable today. I have a wonderful husband (a real Boaz!) but even a great marriage has growing pains. When I find myself in times of discouragement or dissatisfaction in my marital relationship, I remember that it's not my husband's job to fulfill me, it's the Lord's job. It never fails that when I do a spiritual checkup, I discover that it's really my relationship with Jesus that needs the tune up and when I start giving Jesus my devotion once again, my discouragement always disappears, confirming what Debby and Jackie are teaching with this book--only Jesus can make us whole. If more women realized this principle, there might be fewer divorces among God's people.

Format: Paperback
It has been asked before why a male would read such a book as LADY IN WAITING. My answer to the question is that I am sincerely interested in how the female mind works and what women expect out of a relationship. Of course, I'm often curious as to how correct books like this are concerning what men are really like (or should be like). I've read several books like this and I must say that so far LADY IN WAITING is the best.To begin with the book has a Biblical core, it's written with the Book of Ruth as it's foundation. Many books like this don't have such an indebth Biblical basis. Granted there are a few things one could argue about (I think Ruth's uncovering Boaz's feet wasn't an act of purity, but was actually quite radical and scandlous), but overall the authors are right on the money.Secondly, the book gives a positive view of men and is usually correct about the role of a man in life.Finally, this book doesn't offer false hope. Many books similar to LADY IN WAITING promise that if a women follows such and such steps, she will eventually catch her man. LADY IN WAITING offers no such promises. It is implicit in reminding the reader that only in God can a women be completely made whole, not in a husband and clearly illustrates that not all women will are meant to be married. An enjoyable and informative read, one that females will probably get even more out of than a young bachelor like myself.

Format: Paperback
For any woman searching for Mr. Right this book is a must. This book encourages the reader to give up their search for the man of their dreams and begin looking to God to fill the void in their lives. It isn't until we as women realize that only God can fill our deepest longing that we are truly able to find happiness when God brings "His Best" into our lives. Will you trust God to provide for you the joy that only He can give? The authors of the book set great boundaries for starting a relationship and going through the stages until marriage. Letting him pursue you is a big encouragement in this book. The loving advice given in this book will truly change the way you look at dating relationships. Instead of frantically searching for "the man" to marry, allow yourself to wait on God. He will prove faithful! Will you trust your creator and lover of your soul to provide for this desire of your heart? If it is God's will for you to marry, He has someone very special in mind. Don't settle for second best. God wants you to find joy and fulfillment in your relationships. This book tells you how!

Format: Paperback
I read Lady in Waiting several years ago while still in my early teens. I have refered back to it many times since then trying to grow my relationship with the Lord while I wait on my future husband. I agree that our ultimate goal is to be satisfied completely with Christ and His cross, but that is something we as humans won't be able to completely attain until we are in Heaven with Christ. Strive for contentedness yes, and find your significance in Him, but it's ok to long for a husband. Don't dwell on it, but to deny and ignore the longings of your heart to me is almost like denying and ingnoring the One who placed them there in the first place.

In short, this is a great read and a great example of how to mold your life after the One who gave you life. Strive for holiness, but rely on the One who is holy to make you holy, and wait on His timing for your future husband, He will send him when you both are ready.

Format: Paperback
I found this book while exploring the Amazon for books on Christian dating. I've already read Joshua Harris' books (I Kissed Dating Goodbye, Boy Meets Girl), When God Writes Your Love Story (Eric & Leslie Ludy), I Gave Dating a Chance, Getting Ready for the Guy/Girl Thing, etc. And all of these are very good books, but most are not on "my level." The first 4 seemed to be written for those at the "marrying age", and being 16 I do not feel I am qualified to be at that stage in life. The last one (I believe) is written for the pre-teen; the girl/boy who hasn't the slightest clue how to even speak to a member of the opposite gender.
But Lady in Waiting is different. Debbie & Jackie address the female crowd of singles; those who are not in a dating relationship. Many times reading even a Christian book on dating can get you down. I used to think & pray, "I agree with everything they're saying. When's it my turn, Lord? Why am I not in a relationship with a guy now? Where is Mr. Right?" But Lady in Waiting has been teaching me about Ruth. How she used her free time as a widow for God's glory; not wallowing in her own self pity.
I have a new resolve to become the lady God wants me to be. After all, if I want God to send me a man after His own heart who loves me as I am, I need to become someone worthy of such devotion.
So, if you're sick of waiting, read Lady in Waiting.
