About the book:
Waiting for Wonder: Learning to Live on God's Timeline (Abingdon Press, November 2016)
What if, in this waiting, God is calling us to more?
It's easy to believe God when a promise is new. It's hard when the years pass and nothing changes. It's even harder when desperation strikes, your plans backfire, and still God does not fill the emptiness. But what if, in this waiting, God is calling us to more?
Join author Marlo Schalesky on a unique, contemplative journey to reveal the wonder that is often missed when we find ourselves struggling to wait well. Walking through the life of the biblical character Sarah, one who knows what it means to wait, you will discover a glimpse of God's character that will give you strength to keep hoping and praying for the desires of your heart.
Waiting for Wonder is a journey into the heart of God where you will wrestle with personal questions, think deeply about God's true character, and learn to appreciate His divine work as you discover your own path to the promised land. Recapture your hope, restore your soul, and renew your vision of a wondrous Savior when you learn to live on God's time.
Leader guide also available.

About the author:
Marlo Schalesky is an award-winning author of ten books, including "Wrestling with Wonder: A Transformational Journey Through the Life of Mary." A regular speaker and columnist, she has also published nearly 1,000 articles in various Christian magazines, including "Focus on the Family," "Today's Christian Woman," "In Touch," and "Marriage Partnership." Marlo lives with her husband, six young children, nine horses, two dogs, five cats, two parakeets, ten rabbits, two chinchillas, three hamsters, and a bunch of fish in a log home in Salinas, California.
This is a wonderful book to read through and ponder. "Waiting for Wonder" tells the story of Sarah and Abraham and the many years they waited for God to bless them with a child; they were blessed and it was on God's timeline. Everything is perfect in God's time, but that doesn't mean the waiting is always easy or in reality ever easy. I love how this book is set up as it really delves into Sarah's journey, but also ties in Marlo's personal journey as well, all the time encouraging the reader and gently reminding that we are all on the journey of life together, while we may be on different paths, we are all on the journey. This book flows nicely and is a great reminder this time of year while the new year is coming up and goals are set and can be met, but with God's help and on His timeline.
