Editorial Reviews

Review

When God Says, "Wait" is a must-read. Elizabeth gives us confidence and courage in times of waiting, ensuring that we will be ‘better because of the wait.’ We are better because of this book, too! With solid scriptural advice, practical prompts, and unmatched wit, Elizabeth helps us find faith in times of uncertainty. Whether you’re a mom, student, business owner, or wife, this book is for you!” 
–Lara Casey Isaacson, Author of Make It Happen


“In When God Says, “Wait,” Elizabeth captures readers through previously unexplored anecdotes of familiar Bible stories and then connects you with these ancient icons, venturing deeper into their narratives. With Elizabeth’s own graceful confessions and by linking our own emotions to those of these past heroes, we internalize so much more than just the moral of their stories. We take on their hope, their insight, and their love for God in a way that helps us navigate this ‘lonely, unmarked territory’ that is waiting. We have known Elizabeth and her husband Kevin for many years. We value their guidance, direction, and most of all their genuine desire for a relationship with Christ. This book is the culmination of years of grappling with questions and faith-testing waiting with practical insights of the way God works in these times.”  
–Pauli and Chip Wade, Lead Creative at Wade Works, Star of HGTV’s “Elbow Room” and “Curb Appeal"


“Elizabeth Thompson is a kindred spirit. I love her writing style, heart, and quirky humor. She writes with authenticity and wisdom. When God Says, “Wait" gives practical, biblical precepts, but it also unites our hearts with beloved biblical characters. Thompson masterfully paints scenes from these characters’ lives in such a way, you feel you're there. Time is removed. Rather than biblical saints, they become people just like us. Their stories are ours. It's a must-read for anyone struggling with God's timetable. Healing, hopeful, and filled with grace to help us trust God as we wait on Him.”
–Andy Lee, Author of A Mary Like Me: Flawed Yet Called


“It's hard to be the example, but someone's gotta do it! Thank goodness it is Elizabeth—her journey through waiting, wit in expressing it, and wisdom to learn from it. This book is not only a beautiful testament of one woman's faith, but a reminder of the many Bible heroes who God told to wait. Oftentimes life leaves us in the gap between what is and what will be. Thank you, Elizabeth, for refining the gifts that can only be given as we wait. Those gifts and this book will be a gap-filler and hope-giver to women all over the world.”
–Laura Whitaker, Executive Director, Extra Special People, Inc. 


“As Elizabeth writes, when speed is our cultural priority, ‘wait’ feels like a bad word. Thanks be to God that this does not have to be the case and that through When God Says, “Wait” we can uncover a roadmap to prayerful, humble, practical, and hopeful waiting—even in the midst of heartbreaking trial! Any reader will feel indebted to Elizabeth’s fearless take on the misconceptions of waiting, sharing from a deep well of scripture-rich wisdom. While most authors dealing with such tender topics may shy away from hard-to-swallow truths, Elizabeth guides, challenges, and encourages just like a best friend—with vulnerability and humor—so that your heart can fall deeper in love with a God who sees, hears and cares.”
–Marilisa Schachinger, Founder and Event Planner, Martel Events
