About the book:
Single and satisfied? Not Michelle, Angela and Lisa. These saved but sexy, successful black women think they're getting too old to keep waiting on God to send their soul mates. Under the protective eye of their more spiritual sister-girlfriend, Vanessa, and the scrutiny of newly saved but still sarcastic manhater, Nicole, the ladies go on a hilarious adventure to "be found" by their husbands.
Armed with their list of essential must-haves, would-be-nices, icing-on-the-cakes, and deal-breakers, they start their search . . . but soon encounter issues specific to the saved woman on the dating scene. Is online dating okay for Christians? How long do you wait before you tell the hottie you just met that you're celibate and plan to stay so until married? He's too fine to pass up; how saved does he really need to be? And of course, how do you keep things holy when he's oh-so-sexy?
It's not long before they realize they still have to trust God to know what's best for them, and that He loves them enough to send them everything on The List.
The List is about four friends who are all too busy or timid to even think about dating. They have different backgrounds and experiences but they really care about each other and support one another. I found Michelle's story inspiring. It shows that sometimes when we are seeking God's will the answer is right under our noses. It also is a great illustration of how to seek God's best and actively seek the answer rather than waiting for God to send everything our way.
Filled with great advice as part of the storyline, The List could really help single ladies with careers who are desiring a husband and family. With plenty of humor and some tender moments, The List stirs hearts and makes the reader see how God wants to meet our needs...if only we'll let Him.
The List was published by Urban Christian and will be released in March 2009.
