I’m in awe, friends.
Absolute awe of what can happen:
♥️When you’re obedient to God’s prompting.
♥️When you’re willing to take a risk.
♥️When you’re willing to share your story.
♥️When you’re willing to be vulnerable.
♥️When you’re willing to be brave.
While I knew I was about to embark on something bigger than myself from the moment God planted the seed of Living in the Wait, I never knew where it would take me.
Year five brought much growth. Many opportunities, risks, and connections were made and I’m excited to see where the obedience in taking them will lead Living in the Wait, you and myself. Here are a few highlights from year five!
Living in the Wait One Year Book Anniversary Celebration
This milestone represents 365 days of the message of Living in the Wait circulating the globe, in a personal letter to you, brimming with hope and expectation on navigating seasons of waiting.
Since launching my book, 500 copies have been sold and distributed in over 25 states and 2 countries. Check out this recap video celebrating those who purchased the book.
The reviews I get continually humble and surprise me, including this one:
“Learning how to live during seasons of waiting can be one of the hardest things we do in life. We’re left questioning and wondering so much about ourselves, our purpose, and God, leaving us unsure what to do next. Melissa has written a heartfelt and practical guide for us to follow during these in-between times. She has walked this hard road herself, and what God has done in and through her is a testimony for us all!”
— JENNIFER DUKES LEE, author of Growing Slow, speaker, and writer for Dayspring’s (in)courage

Getting to talk about Living in the Wait never gets old.
And hearing the connection you have with this message fires me up.
I shared the story of Living in the Wait during a TV interview, and as I explained the intricate details God designed through my story, all of those in the room got goosebumps.
That my friend, is why I continue to share my story. It’s not about me. It’s about you and how this story deeply affects you. It’s about how this story makes you feel seen because we all know what it’s like waiting for something we desire.
I want to continue sharing this story, with more and more people, on more and more stages.
If you’re in need of a speaker for an event, church service, workshop, conference, podcast or group meeting I would love to help you out! Visit the Speaker page on my website.
Here is a video of all the speaking engagements – live events, TV and podcast interviews – this past year provided.
This past year provided additional opportunities to get the message of Living in the Wait in front of more audiences from South Dakota, to Washington and Florida.
I’m particularly passionate about ministering to women and encouraging them to be brave to discover the details God is orchestrating and designing through each life experience.
Some topics I like to focus/have focused on include waiting, faith, marketing, authorship, and business/entrepreneurship. I’d also love to know about what your group specifically needs to hear, and speak to that specific need.
My message will continue to evolve and grow and I look forward to more opportunities to spread the message of Living in the Wait through speaking engagements.
YOU are the reason this celebration is happening. Your support and prayers have made Living in the Wait what it is today. You have chosen to support me and this message and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Please share with someone you know who could use some encouragement in the wait.
