Laura JacksonWorth the Wait by Laura Jackson

  •        Are you open to your own romance?

Yes, I’ve been praying for my future husband since I was a teenager, which was a LONG time ago.

  •         What’s the number one quality you’d require in a mate?

Loves Jesus

  •         What’s the number two quality you’d require in a mate?


  •          Where is the best place you can think of to find a mate?

Church would be ideal because I want a man who loves Jesus first and me second. But, I hear the grocery store is a great place to meet men. Who knows why, but I haven’t had any success there. 

  •           What type of features are you attracted to?

I like manly men. Rugged and strong. Rough hands. But, every once in a while, I may want to see him in a suit. 

  •           What would be a reason to end a potential romance for you?

Cheating. Or if he were a Laker fan. (Just kidding…maybe.)

  •          Where do you dream of getting married?

Under an oak tree. Maybe early evening with twinkling lights hanging from the branches.

But her world is suddenly knocked off center when her drool-worthy boyfriend cheats, and her always-has-it-together mother is diagnosed with cancer. Ellie doesn’t get it. She always does the right thing – doesn’t God owe her a happy life? Through her heartache, Ellie learns that sometimes what seems like the end is really just the beginning and that what God has for us is always worth the wait.

    Hi. I have had this book on my wishlist since I heard about it. Would like to be entered. Thanks.

  • Laura Jackson says:

    Thanks for the comments, everyone.
    Abbi, doesn’t it? I was driving around with a few friends looking at Christmas lights, and some of the huge houses with gorgeous trees had lights on the limbs and hanging down. Gave me the idea. 🙂

  • Hello Laura. Sounds good. So it is ok for 16 and 17 year olds who are christians? I love the idea of the tree with lights. But, I don’t like to stand under trees especially late day for I would be watching for spiders to drop down. 🙂 Really! Would like to win it as a gift. Thanks.
    Hi Shannon. Thanks for having laura here and the give-away. Maxie

  • Laura Jackson says:

    Maxie, you now have me worried about spiders! Ha!
    Yes, 16 and 17 would be the target audience. There is talk of sex, underage drinking, etc, but all from a Christian point of view.

  • I loved learning Laura’s dreams of Mr. Right! Under an oak tree at early evening sounds like a lovely setting for a wedding!
