Nia Irvin-Smith, Author
While You Wait…is not just a non-fiction book about the journey of this young lady’s single life. Its a vivid reflection about moments of every single person’s life at one point or another who is striving to live holy. In this book, the author gives clear and very relative biblical demonstrations as well as present day validations that waiting on the Lord’s promises to manifest is a journey of trial and error and patience. Not just in dealing with mortal love, but with friendships, career/business goals, and spiritual soundness. Though the book has funny moments and very truthful stories, from a young african american female’s point of view, While You Wait…will engage black/white, women/men, and the single/married Christ driven individual.
This book is beyond amazing and is truly life changing! Nia’s use of transparency coupled with the truth of God’s word completely captivated me. Deciding to read her book was one of the best decisions I could of ever made. Her life experiences and wisdoms truly serve as a source of great encouragement. I would highly recommend this book to anyone!
We all need to know what to do while waiting for God’s promises to manifest. In her book While you Wait, Nia laid down foundational biblical concepts and her own personal experiences with a boldness that left no doubt about her relationship with Christ. This boldness and depth could only come from spending hours and hours in prayer and meditating on His Word. She is unrelenting and intentional about her relationship with Christ and about spending time with Him.
This book is filled with scripture and can be used as a resource for ongoing bible study. It is my hope that in reading this book you will experience a paradigm shift in your spiritual life like never before. Be prepared for your Spirit to leap with unleashed joy in agreement while reading this amazing book.
Through our journey as a single adult, we are faced with challenges, temptations, and our own self defining as part of our development. Nia utilizes her experiences/her testimony coupled with the Biblical experiences of others to further our own personal growth. The truth and wisdom God has placed upon her is carried forward to the reader by her personal understanding of our place, in God’s plan.
My initial response after reading this book was WOW!!!! AWESOME AND AMAZING!!! This book has significance in the life of every believer who feels that they are “Waiting” on God to do something. Nia expounded on the word of God in correcting that very thought within the mindset of most believers. The book is well written and every chapter builds upon the previous chapter giving the reader a foundation, understanding, and revelation. While You Wait is a book that you will want to encourage everyone to read. It gives great insight on the will of God for you life.
