Are you or a loved one still waiting?
At an early age, we form hopes and dreams regarding our future. Fast-forward a few decades, we find that things haven’t turned out the way we imagined. We see others living out their dreams, while ours have yet to materialize.
This book examines challenges associated with deferred hope and unfulfilled expectations. Rather than allowing the difficulty and pain of waiting to bring us to a screeching halt, we can live fruitful, God-honoring lives while waiting. Through my personal story, spending time in the waiting room, discover eight intentional choices we can make that will allow us to thrive when life hurts.
“Dafnette addresses areas that some seek to avoid and aren’t sure how to confront. This is a book for those who struggle in silence as they find themselves in waiting periods longer than anticipated…I know firsthand the challenges that we both face in the Waiting Room. I applaud her transparency.”
~Jumaine Jones, Lead Pastor of The Bridge in Silver Spring, MD and author of Lost In Love: Navigating the Five Relationship Terrains
“Dafnette peels back the curtain to give us a raw, unfiltered, and engaging glimpse into the pain and confusion that sometimes comes with the mysterious ways and timing of God...Dafnette offers perspective and encouragement for those enduring the pain and disorientation of the waiting rooms of life and a blueprint for friends and family who have joined them there.”
~Heather Zempel, Discipleship Pastor, National Community Church in Washington, D.C. and author of Amazed and Confused
