The Plan A Woman In A Plan B World: Book Review

About The Book:

Settling for less in life is not an option when things don't turn out as planned.

Debbie Williams helps women realize through biblical teaching and true life stories that, 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 don't have to simply discard the Plan A woman you always wanted to be. In fact, even in the harshest headwinds of struggle, Williams encourages and inspires you to move from the discouragement of the Plan B world into the fulfillment and overpowering joy of God's Plan A for your life.
  • READ ENCOURAGING TRUE STORIES of women who have faced Plan B disappointments and tragedies and trusted God to fulfill their hopes and dreams.
  • DISCOVER AND DISARM LANDMINES that can hurt relationships and emotions when Plan B circumstances arise.
  • GET PRACTICAL ADVICE from women on how to have a Plan A spirit.
  • REMEMBER YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR about Plan B circumstances.

My Review:

This book was a refreshing reminder that regardless of what we want for our lives, its what God wants that matters. We could have the best laid plans, but if they are not in God's will, these plans will not turn out the way we wanted. However, they will always be what God wants for us. Life does not always turn out the way we plan, but always the way He wants. God's ways are not ours, nor His timing ours. Once we realize that and give up control on our life, we will be astonished to see all the things God wants for us.

This book is very well written and a very easy read. You will be challenged and strengthed as you are reminded to "Let go and Let God".  If you are a woman and saying to yourself, "my life has not turned out the way I planned" you need to read this book!
