Review of Plan B by Pete Wilson

When I requested Plan B by Pete Wilson from Booksneeze, I had no idea the rough time we have been going through in life is a plan b situation. I read the first two chapters online while waiting for the book and cried through most of it. Luckily, once I received the book, I had gotten through some of the hardest examples(in my opinion). Plan B offers several examples of what a plan b situation might look like. It offers hope and scripture to help you get through your plan b situations. Pete offers encouragement that there is often a rainbow at the end of trials and suffering. He doesn't promise a rainbow, but the encouragement that there often is one was enough to give me hope. Pete points out several situations in the Bible where people are going through a plan b. I love reading books that have scripture to back up what they are saying. He points out that there is nowhere in the Bible that says God will not give us more than we can handle. I was taught that growing up and have been really learning this year that those thoughts are simply not true. God might give us more than we can handle so we have no other option than to give up complete control to Him. I loved reading those words from another pastor. I would definitely recommend this book to others. My 11 year old is currently reading it and really enjoying it.
