Waiting is often a painful enterprise. Watching others gain the success and platform you desire tests the strongest faith. Especially when you know God has given you a message to share.

Wendy Pope, author known for life change through her in-depth Bible Studies and her place in the Proverbs 31 ministry, joins hosts Kathi Lipp and Michele Cushatt on the topic of the waiting game that many authors and speakers endure.

She addresses the five misconceptions about waiting and how it pertains to the ministry of the communicator. Any author or speaker who finds themselves waiting for bookings, phone calls, publishers, and/or God to move can relate to this inspiring lady. You do not want to miss this!

Check out Wendy’s new book, Wait and See for more inspiration and encouragement on the topic of waiting.
