Overview

Waiting for Mr. Right is the first of three in the Mr. Right Novel Series.

Julia Duncan arrives at Tyler University with high hopes of a good education, but more importantly, meeting that special someone. Like many girls do, she imagines a handsome prince who will sweep her off her feet as they ride into the sunset and live happily ever after. Sounds simple, right?

Eventually, Julia does find a boyfriend who seems to be Mr. Right, but time reveals that he is just the opposite, and her romantic dream quickly becomes a terrifying nightmare. What started as a little lie grows to the point of crisis, and with each passing moment, she moves further and further away from the life that she so desperately desires. Will she survive her first year of college?

As Julia's story begins, you will meet her new friends on campus and see how they deal with issues like unwanted pregnancies, abusive boyfriends, and the power of being a true friend. You will see how one small nugget of truth saves Julia's life and puts her back on track to experience God's very best for her life.

She has been married to her Mr. Right for fifteen years. Working with teens and singles for over two decades, Lisa has ministered to countless women, getting to know their life stories as well as the challenges of navigating life in today's culture.

She has a passion to see young women become who they were created to be, to experience the best life possible in Christ. She has co-authored the Mr. Right Series with her mother to give young women the vision and strategies to do so. In addition to writing for the Mr. Right Series blog, she enjoys family time, church, Spanish, reading, and hitting the tennis courts with her husband.

Barbara Precourt has been married to her Mr. Right for forty-four years, working alongside her husband in his insurance agency. Together they raised two children and presently have eight grandchildren. Barbara's writing reflects almost forty years of Bible study and teaching. In the past, she wrote curriculum for and served as the head of her church's children's program. She has taught both premarital and parenting classes through the years and served on the board of directors of PATH (Positive Approach to Teen Health), an organization she continues to actively support. She currently serves in the women's ministry of her local church.

Barbara's passion is to help teens and women with their choices and dreams in life, especially when it comes to dating relationships. She invited her daughter, Lisa, to join her in creating a vehicle to do so, and together they collaborated to write the Mr. Right Series. Three novels and a workbook later, they are reaching girls throughout the world with their message of hope and purpose in Christ. In addition to writing for the Mr. Right Series blog, she enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, gardening, cooking, reading, and biking.

I'm a 28yr olds and I have read all three of these books and did the journal. This is not a step by step self help book, but it is a help book. You can learn some how for the charters in this book, and take to much out of it even at my age. This book will keep you wanting to read more. I got the first one and im not much of a reader but i couldnt put it down. i had to keep going to find out what was going to happen next. I read the first one in 2 days and then i went out and bought the rest. I recommed this book to all ages expectantly young teens. I know i will be keeping my copys for my daughter to read when she get old and buy it for my neice. Its a great gift for our young ladies

You might as well buy all 3 of these books! They are Great! These books are not only an exciting read (a true page turner), but they mentor to the reader and you dont even realize it! You end of loving Juliia and learning through her journey of making good and bad decisions, the fine line between those sometimes. Tastefully written, it is clear the authors have a passion for girls and God's purpose for your life. I wish I would have had something like this when I was a teen!

Fabulous book series! Every teenage girl should read them! These books address issues that teenage girls face... from a Biblical perspective. Girls are learning things about their sexuality whether we know it or not. This is a FABULOUS tool to teach them the right things.
