Living in the Wait: How to Use the Delays in Life Differently

Releasing November 9. Available for purchase on Amazon.


How Do I Live in the Wait?

Waiting is something we all experience, and yet, we don’t get to choose the things in life we wait for or how long our seasons of waiting last. We all have desires that are unmet. Places we feel God has not listened, answered, or given us what we want.

Melissa’s warm and down-to-earth approach connects with every person who’s weary and worn in the wait. Join her as she invites you to find shelter under The Truth Tree, rooted in principles to encourage, grow, and refine your heart.

In Living in the Wait:
• Discover hope and healing by inviting God into seasons of waiting
• Find clarity and direction about what to do during the in-between times of life
• Learn simple and practical truths to embrace growth when life doesn’t go as planned

Living in the Wait gives us the confidence and courage in times of waiting, ensuring that our deepest desires can be trusted with the one who gave them to us, Jesus. With practical prompts and unmatched vulnerability, Melissa helps us learn to use the delays in life differently.





Living in the Wait Guidebook

Praise for Living in the Wait

Living in the Wait is not a fluffy how-to guide filled with stories on how waiting makes you stronger. Instead, this is a book that shares Melissa’s real-life experience and heartache — pointing us back to Jesus at every turn. Waiting can be so hard, but Melissa teaches us how to wait well, because she’s been there.”


ADAM WEBER, lead pastor of Embrace Church and author of Love Has a Name

“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

“As someone who’s navigated many seasons of waiting, I found the words on each page so healing. Reading this book, I felt like I was having a conversation with a trusted friend. One who lovingly understood and made me feel safe during what’s typically an uncertain and vulnerable time. Melissa is special, and you’ll be so much better for getting to know her through her words. I know I am.”
