Debbie Williams helps women realize through biblical teaching and true life stories that settling for less in life is not an option when things dont turn out as planned. Rather than simply accepting failure or settling for less in what the world calls Plan B, women can approach life with their own Plan A spirit and let God reignite their hopes and dreams.
Women grow up dreaming of the life they hope to have. Many have prince charming in their plans. Perhaps a good career, long life, happy and obedient children, and good health. But plans often do not materialize in the reality of their lives. Marriages fail in alarming numbers, health problems arise, parenting turns out to be a much tougher job than expected, and all of a sudden Plan B sets in. In this bold and uplifting book by Debbie Williams you will discover that, no matter where Plan B has you headed, you dont have to simply discard the Plan A Woman you always wanted to be. In fact, even in the harshest head winds of struggle Williams encourages and inspires you at every turn to move from the discouragement of the Plan B world into the fulfillment and overpowering joy of Gods Plan A for your life.
- Encouraging true stories of women who have faced Plan B disappointments and tragedies and trusted God to fulfill their hopes and dreams.
- Gives practical advice from women on how to have a Plan A spirit.
- Helps women gain a sense of humor about Plan B circumstances.
- Helps women discover and unarm land mines that can maim relationships and emotions when Plan B circumstances arise.
Williams offers biblically-based counterpoints to what she refers to as "land mines" of negative thinking, and she provides anecdotal support of her main points for each chapter. Each segment also highlights a woman of the Bible who struggled with that chapters issue and Williams speculates about what it must have been like for her. Jeremiah 29:11, which says, "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future,'" is an overall theme verse for this book. Throughout the book, Williams strives to make sure her readers are aware that God is sovereign over whatever situation they may find themselves in and that good can always come out of it.
Williams writes in a way that immediately captivates readers and leaves them wanting to continue turning pages. The Plan A Woman in a Plan B World is comprised of three main sections: live out loud, love out loud, and laugh out loud. Live out loud concentrates on stopping negative thinking and viewing circumstances from a new light. Love out loud is made to take reading the book to the next level by sharing it with friends and this part even includes discussion questions. Laugh out loud is a section for recording the little things in daily life that make the reader laugh, to help establish a new habit of seeing the good in everything. Each section is skillfully written and bursting with biblically sound advice and knowledge.
The writing in this book is strong and will prove to be useful to women ranging from high school age to older generations. This book is great when read alone, but is written in such a way as to allow it to be easily used in pairs or group studies. Single or married, young or old, The Plan A Woman in a Plan B World will be beneficial for women of all ages and walks of life. I would highly recommend this book to all Christian females looking for focus, direction, motivation, and encouragement. Sarah Sawicki, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
