well when i first got the email telling me about this book i was like hmm i guess i'll try to get this. but i knew it might be tough and i'd have to be quick. but also i don't normally read these kinds of books because they go soooo slow for me. so i waiting til the time to request the book i was gonna try it anyways. i follow petes blog and generally enjoy what he writes about and think hes a funny person. but the site crashed and i was trying so hard and getting a bit frustrated. but i kept trying and eventually i got through and i got it requested and i was pretty relieved and had a sense of accomplishment hah cause i did it!
so moving on to the book. honestly since i don't normally read these kinds of books i didn't know quite what to expect i hoped it wouldn't be slow reading and super boring. and it totally wasn't it was a super quick read for me and some of those stories in it were heartbreaking but some were just so funny. but it was good. i've been in somewhat of a situation like a plan b situation and it helped me remember how far i've come from it and it is such an amazing book honestly. i loved it.
here is the book description. and i wasn't compensated in anyway for this review. i received this as part of the booksneeze program from thomas nelson publishers. these thoughts are fully my own.
"Learn how God often does His best work in our most hopeless situations.

He identifies our common responses to difficulties and offers hope, helping us to
Understand what God might be up to See how surrender helps us to receive God's plan Embrace the community of believers Reconcile a God of love with a life of tragedy and suffering Wilson points readers to the cross as not just the starting line but the centerpiece of our stories with God where we turn in our Plan B and find the undeniable relationship between crisis and true spiritual transformation."
