Book Review: Beyond Waiting

Age group: Girls 13 and up

Description: You are a complete person with thoughts and dreams and your own, unique personality, but it can be hard to hold onto yourself in a world that tells you to just keep waiting until the right guy comes along. Is this really the purpose of your single years? In Beyond Waiting, you'll discover the true meaning of the word wait and learn why life can be so discouraging if all you're doing is pursuing that ever-elusive Prince Charming. A fresh spin on the fairytales you grew up with will have you yearning for more than happily ever after as you dare to step into the journey that lies within your once upon a time. You were meant for so much more than merely waiting. So brace yourself for the most beautiful fairytale ever written-yours. Study Guide is included. "Beyond Waiting is exactly the book that single Christian girls and women need to read. Rebekah Snyder powerfully weaves truth together in a way that is inspiring and motivating. Every woman should realize the thrilling adventure of following God into the unknown paths He has for her whether or not a man is involved. Rebekah teaches us how to do just that. This book is a must read. It will change your life " Shannon Primicerio, author of ten books including The Divine Dance Rebekah Snyder is a writer, dreamer, and lover of fairytales who is living her journey of once upon a time in the beautiful mountains of Virginia. Beyond Waiting is the first of what she hopes will be many books to come.

Most books I have read on purity have been let-downs. Although by people I personally admire, and people with good intentions, they left me feeling like my life didn’t matter until I got married. It took me a few weeks after reading those books to feel normal again. Rebakah Snyder’s book was different. It made me want to send it to all my girlfriends and say: "This is how it is supposed to be."

Beyond Waiting is not a book on how to survive your waiting years or a manual on how to treat guys. Beyond waiting deals with the heart of the problem; our value. The reason many girls toss purity out the window or lose it is because they think their value comes from a man. This book will remind girls of an often forgotten fact: God did not make you as half a person. You are whole and complete as you are. I guy is not going to make you any more then you already are.

I highly recommend this book to every unmarried girl. I hope that the pages of this little gem will encourage you as much as it did me.
