Minister and film director, Devon Franklin and his wife actress, Megan Good debut their new book entitled ‘The Wait’; a story of their love journey of celibacy prior to their marriage in 2012. Both Megan and Devon made a joint decision to path on a spiritual journey, abstain from sex during their courtship, and strengthen their relationship with GOD all at once.
Despite a few criticism of ‘surprise’ that these two ‘beautiful’ and ‘sexy souls could take on such disciplinary action in the world of Hollywood, Megan and Devon says they’ve done it and they’re extremely happy about the results.
The couple features in the February issue of ‘Rolling Out’ to dish on the new book and their message to young people is clear – ‘ Your Worth the WAIT ‘ !
Megan Good was candid about her past failed relationships, and Devon touched on his moment of clarity where he decided that he would not live a double life of a man in and out of the pulpit arena.
” It was very organic” , Franklin explains. We got married in 2012, started dating about a year before that. As we started talking about our story individually during press for our various projects, all of a sudden people started asking, ‘Hey, you guys waited? What?’
” It was a topic of conversation. As we were talking about it and sharing our testimony, there were a lot of people who really got blessed by it, and they just really were like, ‘How did it work?’ or ‘How did it help you?’ and because of that we thought writing a book would be a good way to help. It’s personal. We wanted to share something that was personal and share what worked for us in a nonjudgmental, non-preachy way. “
“ I think the experience [waiting to have sex] was really life-changing for both of us,” she explains. “And for me personally, that struggle is a crazy one. All of the damage and baggage we accumulate and to be able to come on this side of it and experience it in a totally different way was life-changing for me.”
” When people were interested in the story and what we did and all that, it was exciting to be able to share with them. I want that for other women. For me, the whole thing was that healing process, as well. It not only changed our love life, but every other area of our life. My career has completely changed; everything — just from that discipline. ”
