  1. i read another review of this book somewhere else recently – it’s piqued my interest. not so much because things haven’t gone according to plan in my life – more because i’ve never really had a plan. i’m 27 and i still don’t know what i want to be when i grow up. sure, i’ve got two great kids, but having no ambition seems like a failure in my circle of friends.

  2. That sounds very interesting. I think I am approaching that wall. God has been prying my hands from what they cling to but I have been afraid to let go. Afraid there is no identity there that others will find lovely. I am ready to embrace my plan b and get on with life!

  3. I would love to have this book for myself but also as an encouragement to another woman I disciple who has had to go on disability due to chronic health problems and had to give up her career. I think it would be an awesome gift to her.

  4. Thanks for introducing us to this book! I would love to have this book as I am definitely struggling to accept God’s plan B for my life and would love the encouragement that it is possible to move forward in trusting God with plan B!

  5. I’m at a point where I am questioning everything, my faith, my husbands faith, our adult childrens future which affects the future of our grandchildren, and if I’ll make it through paramenopause with my marriage intact. I’m at a standstill, afraid to move forward and afraid to stay where I am. I feel like I’m in the middle of plan B and I desparately want to understand, move forward, and get on with it.

  6. After I was married. I realized life was not what I expected it to be. Life was hard and sometimes took different paths than expected. Thank you for sharing about this book. It sounds like a treasure to read.

  7. Plan B sounds like a book for those of us whose own Plan A has been shattered. I’m one of those and am trusting a faithful God to walk through each day of the rest of my life.

  8. As someone whose Plan A is shattering all around me Plan B is that small hope I cling to knowing that God has a plan for me even if my plan is not His. By surrendering Plan A I’m starting to find bits of peace in Him.

  9. As I am now 60+ years of age, sometimes I think I’m on to Plan H (hanging on), or Plan P (pressing on, I mean praying through :))~
    I’m an avid reader and this books sounds timely~ Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  10. I’m living in a sort of Plan B.
    I keep feeling like I’m running in circles! I think I need this book.
    I’ve read several reviews already….it just keeps popping up in my face!

  11. plan b’s seem pretty normal anymore…
    i guess letting go of how i think things should turn out is key in that, for me anyway:)
    thanks for posting! good stuff:)

  12. My plan A crashed many years ago, and I’m still trying to find Plan B in the midst of the rubble of shattered dreams of ministry, a husband with mental health issues, and a home and family life that is like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Every excerpt you shared reverberated loud and long with me. Definitely putting this book on my must-read list.

  13. I’m smack dab in the middle of a plan B–facing a second brain surgery for my 2 year old in a year. I am asking all those hard questions about God and my faith in Him. I would love to read this book while I sit in the hospital this next go round.

  14. I’m not sure I’ve had a Plan A yet. It often seems that I’m just wandering around aimlessly trying to figure out what I’m supposed to be doing. However, I do understand hitting the wall…I’ve been there a time or two!

  15. I’d love to win a copy…I’m actually thinking through some of my fears and dreams that have died and taken me to plan B right now, as I’m reading the book with the Bloom Book Club. (Strong Women, Soft Hearts)This has been eye opening for me…and has made me a bit raw in a few areas that I didn’t even realize were there. I also didn’t realize that *everyone* deals with this. I mean, don’t some people live the perfect life from our eyes? (ha!) Thanks for sharing about the book…it is now on my must-read list!

  16. Wow, This sounds like a really great book. I tend to follow my own plan which never works and go back to God’s plan. You think I would learn!

  17. I keep waiting for God to catch up with my plan or to fix the things that aren’t going well…my health, a miscarriage, being too far away from family, marriage issues…maybe this is my plan B. Maybe He’s waiting for me to fall into His plan.

  18. Plan B is inevitable at different points in our lives. I would love to read this book as I enjoy reading books that promote faith!

  19. So looking forward to reading this book at some point! I love the idea of learning how to go with your plan B and see all that God has for you even though it looks way different than you thought…so many times I look back at my life and think of all the little plans I had and how they turned out differently..

  20. Wow, I was just thinking about this type of situation yesterday. I really could use some encouragement and direction on this topic. I never pictured myself as a full-time working mom with all of the stresses that brings, but I really want to be content here because this is what God has for me right now in order to provide for our family (my husband lost his job)…
    I loved your post. Thank you for sharing.

  21. I have been reading about making your dreams come tre but find I really don’t know “what I want to be when I grow up.” That could be problematic since I am 48. I love the life I have but deeply want to live all of what God has intended me to live this side of heaven. I want to take advantage of what is possible within the plan God has mapped out for me; to be fully aware of His prescence and participating in life.

  22. What a wonderful concept for a book – I would love to receive a copy. It would definitely help me to come to terms with the things that don’t turn out quite the way I expected in my life.

  23. This book would be of great encouragement to a dear friend who has been living her Plan B after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She had thought that perhaps her Plan A was beginning to unfold when she found out the cancer had returned elsewhere in her body. Encouragment, Faith, Hope and a Trust in our God who knows us best and wants the best for us would be a great thing to share with her.

  24. Reading this post spoke to where I am right now. I had a job in ministry and through a series of events I no longer work in that position. That job was my Plan B and it broke my heart into so many pieces that God is still repairing. Now as a temp I am trying so hard to trust God’s plan for my life but I struggle sometimes on an hourly basis. from what was posted about this book it seems like it would speak to where I am right now and regardless of if I win a copy or not I plan on reading it.

  25. @Anna, you are not alone. I am 29, 1 son, 1 stepdaughter and I still feel like I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I feel like I am drifting most days. That is what drew me into this post. Even if I don’t win, i think i will have to get a copy of Plan B

  26. Our faith doesn’t grow in the Plan A. When I could live out my plan As I had it all under control, I didn’t need God, and I certainly didn’t need a personal savior that meets me when I am hanging at the end of the rope. In God’s plan A, I am left struggling to make sense of a world that is not my home. This world will never make sense. He brings me comfort, strength, peace, and me to Himself. He is never surprised. There are no Plan Bs to God. His plans surprises even my best ones!

  27. I’d love a copy of the book, Plan B. I just moved back to the U.S.A. because my husband of 8 years decided he just didn’t want to be married anymore. I have felt thrown to the curb…excused from my life as I knew it. I sit here in my friend’s kitchen…homeless, jobless, and wondering if my future has me living alone for the rest of my life – something which strikes fear to my very core. I don’t feel I know God that well anymore and I don’t know how to fix that. This book seems like just the book to shed some light and hope into this darkness I don’t remember asking for.

  28. I have become a fan of Pete Wilson because of Angie Smith. I really want to experience this book. I have had several discussions lately about not being where I thought I’d be at this point in my life (it’s taken me awhile to realize that I’m not in charge 🙂 Pete’s book really speaks to some questions and thoughts I have been struggling with.

  29. We’ve met the wall – tried our best to climb over it, walk around it, dig under it, pretend – and hope – it wasn’t really there…hmmmm! Plan A is gone. Plan B is coming – we have no idea what it is – or when or where or how or why, BUT we know that the same God who led us t.h.r.o.u.g.h the wall is the same God who has something significant in store for us – because of the wall (“All things work together for His good…”!).
    Would love to read what God has put on Pete’s heart to share as encouragement for those of us seeking next steps. Plan B!

  30. Bonnie nailed it: my deepest fear, too, is that God will call my husband home before I’m ready.

  31. What a wonderful topic to write a book about … to share that Plan B is okay … more than okay … that “B” stands for ‘Better’, for ‘Become’, and best of all for ‘Belief’ ! Isn’t all of life about “Better Becoming our Belief” … Plan B gives us this option … and I would love to win Pete’s book to find out how better to become my belief … Thanks Bonnie for this great opportunity!!!

  32. Isn’t accepting God’s plan for our lives the biggest struggle of faith? Especially when we think God ordained plan A?
    Sounds like a great book with great perspectives that we all can learn from!

  33. My husband and I are definitely in Plan B mode – I’d love to read the book!

  34. Sounds like an interesting read…would like to have it to pass along to a few people I know are struggling right now.

  35. At first I thought Plan B was better than Plan A. Most of it really is, but sometimes I think that in the midst of my Plan B I created a new Plan A – a new vision for my new Plan B life. And now I’m in the Plan B of my Plan A that is in my Plan B. Does that make sense? I hope so. I guess that no matter where I’m at I want to take control of that place and God keeps changing things up to remind me that none of it is under my control and all of it is really His Plan A for me.

  36. I would love to read this book, because of my own “Plan B” and the journey I’ve been on to come to terms with it. Plus, I harbor many of the same fears of the future.

  37. This sounds like the perfect book for me. A few of the big plan B things I’ve faced in my life are: After battling infertility for 2 1/2 years I had two children within 18 months; both of which have autism. God’s call for us to adopt has faced obstacle after obstacle. And now I have been diagnosed with RA. All this was defiantely not plan A. I am so thankful that He is in control!!

  38. I’ll be honest and say I’ve read Plan B already. Once I read it I gave it away to a friend. I’d really like to read it again and if the opportunity arises I’ll give it away to another friend. Pete has such great thoughts about life in the midst of Plan Bs.

  39. Oh. My.
    The depths to which God allows us to plunge, in order to see His Plan A for our lives, rather than our own, are frighteningly holy. I would love to read this book and understand the author’s insights into this journey.

  40. “We must be willing if necessary to abandon the life we planned and dreamed in order to receive the life that our God authored for us.” Wow, that really spoke to me. Everywhere I turn, its a Plan B.

  41. There comes a time in your life when you stop and realize that your “Plan A” if it was not in God’s timing or had anything to do with His plan, was just not going to happen.
    I have often found myself saying that it was time for Plan B when it started to become clear that Plan A was not goint to work.
    It would be wonderful to read this book and see if I read about the pieces I am still missing on that Plan B of mine.

  42. because sometimes I wish plan B didn’t hurt so much…
    and I’m learning alot more about “Jesus – the way, the truth, and the life”

  43. I would love a copy of this book because my life has not gone ANYTHING like I thought it would…and sometimes I just feel LOST. Maybe reading this will give me some perspective.

  44. Plan B has been our life the past year or so . . . so much so that we’re starting to call it God’s plan A, because it’s so obvious that it’s what He plans! I’d love to see how this book deals with the subject. Thanks for the giveaway!

  45. As a born planner and a frequent participant in the B Plan in my own life, I would welcome an opportunity to compare life experience notes with this author. I often wonder if I’ve ‘missed the boat’ by slipping past Plan A yet again and once more taking on Plan B, instead!

  46. I am in the middle of Plan B. And have hit the wall. This sounds so encouraging … thanks for being willing to share it with someone!

  47. I need to read this book! God is calling me as he has been carrying me through tragic times in the past two months, resulting in domestic violence, an almost x husband in prison, a baby who turned two, and the last 10 years of my life nothing but lies and manipulation by the spouse I thought loved me for me.

  48. My life right now is not what I had imagined it would ever be. A spouse battling severe depression, financial struggles as a result and my own anxieties over where this path will ultimately lead us. I want to have the faith to say “I choose to believe in you God; I choose to focus on You and not these circumstances”. Yes, I would love to have a copy of Plan B

  49. I have a Plan B life…and it is better than I could have authored for myself. That said, I have dear friends who are struggling with the God of Plan B…and I think this book would be ever so timely!

  50. I think I’m on plan H! Things went awry at quite an early age for me so I learned to adapt to where God places me. My husband hasn’t faced this much and is quite disillusioned at the moment to find himself in a plan B scenario. I would love to be able to give him some encouragement and help point him towards God in a more meaningful way for him.

  51. I’ve been at the wall – and am living a life of plan b, perhaps even plan c.

  52. This sounds like a wonderful read. I’m all wrapped up into trying to stop working my Plan A and joyfully embracing Plan B. This would be timely!

  53. I learned this wasn’t my plan when my baby girl was diagnosed with such severe heart defects they initially thought she’d need a heart transplant. I faced it when we finally realized she would live, which meant I would not return to work but would stay home to care for her.
    My problem is that I keep taking what God gives me and writing my own plan from there, instead of waiting on Him and his plan from there. I’m not yet to the point where I can say that his plan is best AND that I wouldn’t change a thing. I hear people say that and I curl up into a little ball inside. God still has a lot of work to do on me.

  54. I am definitely living Plan B and sometimes I think I have moved down the alphabet! I am that typical girl that planned out her life at a very young age, thinking I would be married with children in my 20’s. At 42, soon to be 43, without marriage or children, I look at all of the places I have taken my life–with or without God’s leading. The places where I let God lead have been the most rewarding and fulfilling like on the foreign mission field. The places where I tried to force it to go was met with pain and hardship. Thankfully God was never absent, just patiently waiting for me to look up. Even with all of this experience, I still get frustrated where He is leading me. It is why I try to never to pray for patience!

  55. Selfishly, I’ve always had my notion of how my life would be. For instance, I’ve always wanted children. But 2 years ago, we learned that my husband of almost 8 years found out he could not have kids. So, when I recently found out my sister was pregnant with her 2nd child (which I am truly happy for), I took my disappointments to God in prayer. It seemed almost in response, He brought to my mind the song that says “when my dreams are lost at sea, Jesus rescues me.” I am still learning but I know that even in the midst of lost dreams and disappointments, God is still at work to bring about something much better.

  56. I have had SO many plans and hit so many walls that this book would be perfect for me! I am a 42 year old with two toddlers – ages 3 and almost 2. Plan B is an understatement – Ha ha

  57. I’d like to own this book. 1. Because I am a page-folder, and underliner. 2. Mostly because I haven’t even figured out Plan A. Thanks.

  58. It’s amazing how much we struggle against God even when the Plan B is fulfilling. I have spent so much time planning and building for Plan A, that I don’t do well with the change up. For me, it started when God pushed me to stay at home with my children. Ten years later, I still struggle with thoughts of “when I go back to work,” or “Does anybody really care what moms do at home?” At the same time, God has blessed me immeasurably in the last several years, and I have so much to share with other moms. I wouldn’t trade these years for anything, and not just because I have been there for my kiddos. The life lessons in Plan B have been humbling, grace-filled, and wondrous.

  59. Thank you for the chance to win…I will be asking for this book regardless so if I win, I can give it away as a gift. Thank you again!

  60. I have hit that wall several times in my life, sometimes it’s a small wall and it’s easy to deal with, other times it gets bigger. I’ve learned that at times I can be controlling of small things, I trust God to control my life and what happens in it. I have a friend who doesn’t like change, but God is working in her life right now with major changes over the last few years. I would love to be able to give her this book to encourage her to accept the changes and trust in the Lord to guide her.

  61. sounds like something i could use right about now. parenting is just a recipe for a lifetime of plan b’s.
    thanks,
    shana

  62. O how I would love to read this book. I’m at the wall…..and keeping hitting my head against it not knowing where to go next, or should I say how to get there or have the courage to take the next step, to STOP hitting my head against the wall!!!!

  63. I would love to have a copy of this book because you never know when your life will change. It can happen in an instant, and then you are suddenly at Plan B!

  64. Nothing in my life has gone according to my “plan”. A barely visible seed of bitterness settled in my heart as a child when the fallout from a relative’s death tore our extended family apart. And turbulent college years, marriage problems, multiple miscarriages, one child diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, my brain surgery a year later, and my other child’s broken leg shortly thereafter nourished that little, bitter seed until it seized hold of my soul and took control of my life. I struggle on an hourly basis with the fact that this is not the life I signed up for. I want to understand what it is God has in mind for me but I can’t seem to eradicate the bitterness.

  65. I have ‘stumbled’ upon information for this book three times in the past week. I think it needs to be added to our family library. In 2007 my husband was diagnosed with double lymphomas,welcome plan B. Then, after treatment he was declared to be in remission only to be let go of his job several months later. Welcome plan “C”. With seven children, two who were in college, our lives had definitely not gone in the direction we had planned. We are still unemployed but abundantly blessed daily by God’s grace. We welcome plans B and C with humility:) God is good ALL the time!

  66. What a great sounding book, isn’t life about putting aside what our plan ‘A’ is to follow what God’s plan ‘A’ really is? Its tough to do and am always looking for insight and encouragment in walking in God’s plan over mine.

  67. Dreams = disappointment. I’ve been struggling for several years over a dream of mine, and I need to embrace God’s plan B for me!

  68. I have heard about this book so many different places now, and am hoping (almost desperately) to win a copy. My life never seems to be the way I dream about it. The biggest things I have dealt with are infertility, lead poisoning in the child we prayed so hard to have, miscarriage, job loss, and home loss.
    I really want to read this book, and let God speak to me through it!

  69. I needed to read this blog post today. Things in my life are spiraling out of control. It’s really hard to understand where the kind and loving hand of my Heavenly Father is in all of this. My library doesn’t carry this book and it’s not something I can afford to purchase right now, but I really feel it could help me. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  70. OMG!!! I have survived through many plan B’s in my lifetime! From being a single mom, to supporting my one and only child through a cancer diagnosis and consequential surgery when she was age 22. Through becoming a grandmother at age 41 when I was expecting to be at least 51 when grandmotherdom claimed me. To supporting my daughter through a domestic violence situation with her 2nd child and through her 5 year old’s sickness and removal of her gallbladder, to her son’s grand mal seizures starting at age 3. Though a court battle with the same son’s dad for custody and having to relinquish this child over to his dad while gunned bailiffs surrounded us and the baby is screaming ‘Nana! Nana! while his little face is contorted with frantic tears! Living and feeling as though he had died and struggling to live through that process. And dealing with 4 hurricanes as a single mom/grandmom in 2 months time. And having a complete and total breakdown with major depression, panic attacks and anxiety attacks all at the same time. All of this plus much more(time and space does not permit) and wondering where is the world is Father God in all of this!! And all of this AFTER being sexually abused by an older brother as a 8 and 9 year old and again at the age of 12 in the optometrist’s office in the dark during an eye exam. Folk’s, I could go on and on and on, but I think you all get the picture. And with all of this AND MORE, still having to stand in faith and believe in the sovereignty of God!

  71. I am living my “plan B” only I didn’t know it was Plan B until I reached adulthood. And sometimes it’s hard to accept. Life is NOT how I imagined; it’s is sometimes better than I thought it would be and sometimes very disappointing.

  72. Plan B is always doable…but not always embraced! Would love to read and understand the complexities of a Plan B life!

  73. God is truly AmAzInG. I’m currently living Plan B, and although I once thought Plan A would be the best option for me, I have just recently begun to see how much treasure God has in Plan B for me. These past three years have been filled with trials, tribulation, illness, and death. Even so, I feel God close, and know He knows what and how I’m feeling. Although this was not the plan I had for my life, I realize it is His Plan and that it is much better for me than my own.

  74. When what I consider my Plan B is God’s Plan A it is often hard to understand. So many questions. So often I fight, when I need to rest into His purpose and plan.
    This book sounds wonderful.

  75. I’ve hit plan B… my husband did die last month, leaving me with 4 kids to raise on my own. If I don’t win this book, I’ll ask someone to buy it for me….

  76. I always have lots of plans, Plan A, B, C and usually several more. I like to think I’m ok as long as I know which plan we’re going with. God has me in a spot right now where I simply can’t plan. I’m learning to trust His character and wait. Waiting wasn’t part of my planning at all. So I guess that’s plan B for me. 🙂

  77. I am currently in the middle of my own Plan B as the LORD has rearranged my life and my circumstances in ways that both terrify me and excite me at the same time. It is hard to let go of my own plans and embrace the unknowns before me in Plan B. But, each day, I strive to walk in obedience and seek Him first.

  78. Hi, I know all about when Plan A doesn’t work. I’m in the middle of trying to find out what Plan B is going to be. You see, plan A was to find a nice Christian man to marry and live happily ever after, so to speak. Well I thought I found that man and I would get my dream of a family. Well I am currently separated from my husband, that wonderful Christian man I thought I found decided to have an affair. Not only did he have an affair and then confess to it and say he wanted to reconcile, but then he did it again and continues to carry on this relationship with this other woman and he is lying to everyone about who he has become. He never told anyone why we separated, I had to tell people, including his parents. He broke my heart like nothing before. I never in a million years would have thought this possible. And to top it off, I’m currently jobless, living with my parents in a crappy econemy. So I walk forth in my endeavor to find Plan B in hopes of discovering what God’s plan is for me. And even though the idea of Plan B is scary and I’m still working of healing from the devastation of Plan A not working, I’m hoping and praying that Plan B will be better than I could have imagined. I hold on to the hope that God has a bigger better plan for me then I had for myself.
    Thanks and I hope that we all discover the wonder and hope of a Plan B.

  79. As I read, I initially thought “I want this for my husband” who is never ever content with where our life is at, and always complains that his “dreams” have been thwarted. I then realized that, on the other hand, my plan was to settle in a lifelong home, with a lifelong career, lifelong community, lifelong church, and lifelong stability, rather than being kept in constant turmoil by someone who gets bored if things stay the same for more than a year – so I guess I need it too!

  80. I have been praying for God to strip me of the worldy things I cling to and to remold me into the design He truly wants me to be. I think this could be a really good book for me to read!

  81. Oh how I would love to win this book! For myself and my husband. Our son died a little over 2yrs ago after a battle with addiction. There are so many ways that day has forced us to face our “Plan B”. We still haven’t fully recovered, especially my hubby. I think from what you have written, this book could be another tool the Lord would use to bring more healing to our broken hearts. As well as, strengthen our faith. And if we don’t win – that’s ok-it is on my book “wish list” and I’ll get it for Christmas.

  82. I follow Pete on Twitter and have heard a lot about this book. It’s on my list of books to read, which grows longer each day. I would love an opportunity to receive it for free. 🙂 Great post Bonnie. That fear of something happening to my husband was one I confronted while pregnant with our first child. It was the death of my uncle, at the age of 42, that made me realize life might not turn out how I expect. Suddenly my ain’t was left alone to raise their 5 daughters. The glorious thing is that God is always there.

  83. My plan A was turned upside down and inside out when my husband of 6 years decided he didn’t want to be married anymore just a few months ago. I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that my life is not going to turn out the way I had planned. I guess this is the time for me to stop planning and start listening for God’s direction. I would love to have this book to help me through this.

  84. This looks really good. We’re on our way to move #6 in July (and possibly #7 before November) in the three years since we’ve been married. (#’s 2, 3, 5 & 6 are transatlantic moves!) Needless to say this is a bit more than I had planned on.

  85. Wow – this book sounds like one I need to read! I am in the middle of my Plan B and just yesterday i was feeling like i have no identity – no credibility – after a 30 year career where I was recognized and looked to for answers…all of a sudden due to things I would NEVER have asked for….illness that has now been my companion for 7 years…giving up my career before i planned….here I am discouraged in the midst of plan B…I need this book!

  86. My plan A crashed and burned many years ago. I moved on to Plan B, which was a ministry with by husband, and a few years ago that also went up in smoke. We were blindsided
    and have both floundered since then. The disappointment and lack of a new vision still hangs thick in the air around us. I’m so ready to move forward, knowing God has a Plan C, but I’m not sure how.

  87. I was raised by a single mother in a non-christian home. When I meet my husband in high school he led me to the Lord. Boy was I in for a surprise! I thought marriage was about my man catering to me. Learning to be a submissive wife has been a trial. I’m thankful for God’s grace and my Hubby ‘s patience.

  88. I’d love a copy of PlanB because I am a compulsive worrier. My plan As haven’t turned out, ever. And even though I’ve seen some of God’s Plan Bs (and boy have they been much better than MY plans) I still find myself worrying and stressing about things that I have no control over.

  89. This sounds like a book I’d love to read. I’m an incredibly plan oriented person, and I always had the “perfect” plan for my life: do well in college, move to NYC, climb the corporate ladder. But of course right when I was in the middle of that ladder my Plan A fell apart and I was completely sidetracked by a major health condition. It took me a long time to let go of my plan and trust God with His plan. Now I’m forever grateful for the work He did in me during that time. I’m working on Plan B now but of course I could stand to examine that a little further and remind myself that even my Plan B might get thrown for a loop and that my ultimate plan should be to trust in Him.
    Thanks for the food for thought and the opportunity to enter!

  90. I’ve heard some of Pete Wilson’s thoughts through Angie Smith’s blog and book club and really regretted that I hadn’t come across Crosspoint sooner when I was living in Nashville. I’ll pick up this book eventually but if I am randomly selected it would be sooner rather than later. : ) Thanks for offering the giveaway.

  91. I would give this book to my friend whose daughter has been diagnosed with cancer. This book sounds great!

  92. My son, a law officer, is in jail – – he robbed a bank . . .my life is shattered and I am struggling for hope – – I don’t know what God wants from me. does He have a “plan B” for me?

  93. I would love to read this book. I have had Plan A’s work out in my early life, then hit the Plan B’s. Divorce, single parenting, losing my career and now my 21 year old daughter that I love with all my heart is not speaking or having anything to do with me. I am trying to keep the relationship with my 19 year old son. I need to start a Plan B at this point in my life but don’t know how. Please give me the opportunity to win this book.

  94. I learned that life does not always go the way I planned when my dad passed away three years ago. He was 47 and I was 21. I had a lot of younger siblings. I didn’t take it very well, and I think this book would be helpful to me the next time I experience something like that.

  95. God is calling me to plan B. I’ve been running for a long time and am now ready to stop, ready to listen, ready to yield. This book sounds really interesting. I’d enjoy reading it I’m sure. Thanks for the encouraging words you pour out & into our lives. You’re a blessing!

  96. I’d like to have a copy of this book. I am currently in the midst of God’s Plan B, but have not yet even started on the path. Everything that I ever thought would happen in my life has just been striped away. God has miraculous plans for what I am to become.

  97. “We must be willing if necessary to abandon the life we planned and dreamed in order to receive the life that our God authored for us.” This hit me. I remember the day my son told me he was gay. All of my dreams for his perfet life came to a screeching halt. Then 5 years later he was diagnosed as HIV positive. Talk about crashing into the wall…….. and there has been alot more after that but I am gradually coming back into my faith, and I keep hearing about this book so I feel I NEED it. If I don’t win it I will buy it for sure!

  98. What a great reminder that God loves us and has plans to prosper us and not always the Plan As that we so feel we need, want, deserve.

  99. I am living in the wake of my father’s suicide just over a month ago, and now this is my life. I am 20 years old and any faint idea I may have had about what my future would look like, what my ministry would be, well this is thrown out the window and now I wait. I can’t fathom why a loving God allows tragedy to happen, allows us to struggle with disappointment with Him. But I am holding onto Him, holding onto hope that He will be glorified in my life, that I will yet see His light in the land of the living.
    And that I would be able to say, with Job,
    “My ears had heard of You, but now my eyes have seen You”
    Yep… plan B.

  100. Thank you for sharing this today. I’m in the midst of my Plan B as the dreams for myself, and the life I thought was coming to fruition, shattered after the first of the year. I am learning to trust in God’s plan for me and know that no matter what happens He is always here for me.

  101. Life is about change and learning to accept it. Plan B…great title and I’m sure it is full of Godly wisdom.

  102. This year has been a hard one for me- several things I never expected to happen to me have, and I’d love to read this book as a way to sift through my thoughts and feelings and learn to have a better perspective!

  103. would love a chance to read this book- need to stop trying to go by my own plan and follow His plan.

  104. I thought my initial calling was nursing … found out the hard way it wasn’t. So I turned to ministry, a calling I had received in college, but ignored and put on the back burner. God has allowed that flame to burn inside of me for over 15 years …. and I know that will be fulfilled one day. I just need to be patient. And know without a shadow of a doubt that God will heal me of this back pain and fibromyalgia so I can be free to experience HIS calling.
    Thank you Thomas Nelson & (In)Courage for this giveaway!

  105. I would love a copy of this book! I enjoy reading and I also review new books on my blog and on Amazon!

  106. I’ve been up against that wall, and also still have plenty of fears in the corners of my heart. I would love to read this book and also share it.

  107. You did a great job reviewing this book. So much so that I would love to read it. I have a chronic illness that continues to get worse. It is stripping me of my ministries – my activities and even parts of “me”. I keep going through learning curves on trusting and relating to God in new ways, but I would love some fresh encouragement. Thanks for the giveaway.

  108. I am living my Plan B right now. After a move that I didn’t want to make, I feel like I’m still in limbo almost 2 years later. I have made friends, but I don’t feel the connections that I had in my old town, the history of friendship. I would love to read this book, and hopefully get out of this ditch that I seem to find myself in.

  109. I had my life all planned out…. and it is nothing like I thought it would be. I’m sure many of us feel that way. I’m trying to find balance and all the little ways I can fulfill some of my hopes and dreams in the life I have, in the here and now.

  110. This sounds like a great book and one I need to read. A friend of mine emailed this post to me to read knowing my situation and the reason I would love to read this. I will cut to the chase.
    I am currently without a job and have not been able to earn enough to pay my bills through my online business. I have depleted my savings and retirement, and this month have been faced with the reality that I might end up on the streets. I am praying that God will provide a job but the end of the month is near and I am now trying to decide which one or two of my bills I will pay.
    I am having a yard sale this weekend and praying that it might make enough to get me though this month.
    So in a nutshell, I have spent most of this month considering what people who are homeless are really enduring, the reality that I might be in that same place, and trying to trust God in the midst of it all.

  111. I would love to read this! When my life switched from Plan A to Plan B, I went into a spiritual tailspin because I didn’t understand why. Praise God, He never let go of me as I (reluctantly at first) allowed the Holy Spirit to heal my heart and guide me in the truth of His Word.
    I’m actually writing an e-book that touches on this topic from a mommy’s perspective.
    Blessings!
    Tara

  112. Sounds like there are a lot of us in need of some encouragement on life not going down the way we’d hoped. When LIFE and REALITY collide…DISAPPOINTMENT is birthed.
    I’m just really hoping there are instructions in there on HOW to just BE and to stop dreaming up the life we want and accepting the life we got instead. Maybe even embracing it with joy.

  113. I would like to read this book. Several times I’ve had to accept plan B(God’s plan A) & work though all the “stuff” that includes.

  114. Bonnie – great post. The excerpts you pulled from Pete’s book really resonated with me. My husband and I have been in ministry for 10+ years now. We’ve had to go to Plan B more times than I’d like to count…these times always accompanied w/ new hurts & disappointments. In fact, our last 4 years have been one big Plan B and we’re not through the desert yet.
    Would I trade our extended Plan B journey? NO. We can now rest in our identity as children of God first and foremost. Our identities are no longer wrapped up in our ministry which has been freeing.
    We’re human though and we still have moments where we question…have we done something wrong for life to turn out this way? This is not at all what we planned.

  115. I’m trying to find my faith after many years & being thrown into many Plan B’s. I’d love to read this book.
    Love reading your posts Bonnie!

  116. Infertility was not in our plan A. I never would have thought that I would be one to suffer, and if I knew four years ago the emotional/spiritual journey I would take I don’t believe I could have handled it. Some things are so hard for us to understand. We are now moving on and exploring God’s plan for us which we believe is calling us down the path of adoption. I’ve been really interested in this book.

  117. It seems my entire life has been Plan B material, and still I struggle with accepting and embracing it. I have worked under the guilt and expectations of a mother, and have tried, as a mother myself, to provide my daughter with her own right to her story unfettered by my own…and still, there managed to be pain when she ran away and cut all ties with us, running ironically to my mother who sought the opportunity to punish me for the attempts I had made at my own story. Too, as a police officer’s wife, I’ve pushed back and pleaded with God over the tearing of one flesh apart should something happen to my husband on duty. Plan Bs are all that I have known, and it has been difficult to not look, somewhat begrudgingly, at what I had sought for Plan A and letting those go, but not quite having the knack to see healing nor blessings from Plan B.

  118. I have read a lot about this book and would love to win a copy. I’m learning that living “Plan B” can be even better than my “Plan A”. However, it’s definitely a work in progress! I’d love to be “challenged” in my idea of Plan A vs Plan B vs God’s plan. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy!

  119. I can’t wait to read this book. I’ve been reading Pete’s blog for awhile now and he’s always so on target. I’m at a point in my life/schooling/career where I’m not sure which way I’m going to be heading. I don’t even KNOW what Plan A is versus Plan B. Right now it’s, “Plan Wha-?” 🙂

  120. I think I ought to go directly to Plan B and forget ALL about Plan A. In fact, I do not really plan well at all; nor do I enjoy planning. God does planning perfectly; I feel like an idiot when I plan.

  121. I’d love to read this book because I’m up against my wall this year. I’m literally in the midst of my plan B! In a matter of months I was broken up with, lost pretty much all of my possessions in an accident in my apartment building, depleted my savings account in trying to recover from said accident, and after it all realized that a lot of things that I thought mattered to me & helped define who I was… actually didn’t. Now I’m planning to return to school and pursue a new life direction entirely, one that will better serve people and God.
    Thanks for sharing about this book!

  122. The little “nuggets” that you have highlighted sound amazing. They sound like EXACTLY what I need right now! I am starting to see that my Plan B is really God’s plan all along . . .

  123. I always leave comments on blogs to win things and have not won. I really hope to win this though because I have read about it on several blogs recently. Thanks for the opportunity!

  124. I bought Plan B for my daughter. After I flipped through a couple of chapters I realized it was really for me, living out my Plan B. I gave it to her anyway, but would love to read it myself. I love Pete’s raw honesty.

  125. I’m experiencing plan B currently. God has been teaching me so much. Would love to read this book for encouragement.

  126. I’m in women’s ministry and often work with those who are in plan B. Currently working with a lady whose mother died way to young and without good cause. This book, I believe, would not only give me insight but allow me to better help those who are hurting.

  127. Plan B. Would love some perspective on what’s next after taking a huge risk from being in corporate life, then to full time ministry, and having it not work out. Still trying to gain clarity on what to do next. Sounds like this book could help in the process. Thank you!

  128. I would love to read Plan B because I have made lots of bad choices in my life trying to follow a so-called Plan A that in reality wasn’t a plan at all because it did not include God. I too feel as if I am up against the “Wall” in my life and walk with Christ. It feels as if the Lord is trying desperately to teach me how to depend on Him and not on my own strength and in my stubborness at times I continue to fight Him…thanks for your post 🙂

  129. This sounds great! I’d love to win this book, as I am facing some “Plan B’s” right now, and know others who are as well.

  130. Life is never perfect, and that is fine. Tragedy happens and we go on–Plan B…Plan C. Along the way, we learn to trust that God is always there. Beauty blooms in the most unlikely places. We develop new eyes as we travel the road of faith, and those eyes watch for and follow the light along the pathway. Sometimes, that is all we can do–walk to where the light stops and know more light will come as we need it. I always expect miracles and many have filled my life.

  131. Sigh. Yeah, so I’m going to type this, and even as I do, I feel like it is the same Plan B in which hundreds of other women find themselves, but alas, its MY Plan B, too. I am thirty-four and single. That is my Plan B. My plan A was to find a dashing man in college, get married, have all of my children by age 30, and be a stay-at-home mom. Jesus has met me in the Plan B. I see the goodness of the plan B. But I have to do major battle to believe the goodness of the character of my God when my enemy accuses Him consistently and loudly in my ear.

  132. Thanks for the opportunity. We could use a new perspective and more growth in doing everything God’s way.

  133. “We must be willing if necessary to abandon the life we planned and dreamed in order to receive the life that our God authored for us.”
    Wow. This sentence slapped me right in the face- in a good way 🙂
    So so hard to let go of plan a.
    so very hard.
    BUT I desperately desire to live in the fullness of the life God has authored for me- even if in my mind my plan a seems better….

  134. I think Plan B stands for bigger and more beautiful than we can imagine – that’s the dreams God has for us and they are revealed one step at a time as we learn to trust Him with our whole heart. Can’t wait to read the book – thanks for finding it for us 🙂

  135. I have read Pete’s blog on several occasions and I really enjoy his wit and the depth of his teaching. I would enjoy reading this book and passing it on to my mom who is in the middle of a fight with her “Plan B”

  136. Thank you for this. I just subscribed to this blog today. I just started my own blog today. It’s amazing the connections that are able to be made the days. As scary as it is to know that God may indeed have a “plan b” for me, it’s comforting to know I have my faith to fall back on.

  137. I was at a church retreat last weekend and the speaker mentioned this book numerous times..the message of the weekend was Courageous Faith…I would love love love to read this book~

  138. I would love to have a copy of this book so that I could take a highlighter and mark all the “Nuggets & Doozies”. (The ones mentioned were great.)

  139. My fears and trusting that I will be OK and God is still good, even if they are realized, are one of the biggest things I’m working through in my faith right now – I want/need to read this book! 🙂

  140. Ten days ago I found out the husband I have been married to for 24 years has sexually abused three of my 18 children. For years. Ten days ago the life I was living, the wife I was, died a shocking and sudden death. My Plan A…everything I thought I was, thought I knew, thought I believed, where I thought my life was going…gone in an instant. Plan B? I can hardly put two words together let alone attempt to find a Plan B. I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able…and that is where my Plan B begins. Just me and God. I am not alone.

  141. I heard about this book & it has intrigued me!! Right now I am ready to surrender it all to Him, yet something is holding me back…I need to break through that as I am feeling my hands starting to grip that “wall”. The book sounds very, very thought provoking! 🙂

  142. It seems I’m hearing about this book everywhere I turn.
    This past year has been filled with a lot of brokenness, as I feel I’m being completely over-hauled by the Holy Spirit (not a bad thing, just a tough thing).
    I think this book will speak a lot of truth into my life… and look forward to reading it.

  143. I would love to have a copy of this book. I am currently living my Plan B (or X,Y, possibly Z!) I am the child of an alcoholic, the wife of a *former* batterer, a recovering anorexic/addict, and the mother of two amazing little boys. Life definitely didn’t stick to Plan A.

  144. Plan B… an unemployed husband and seven and a half years in a fifth wheel. And that’s after two years of backside of the desert…. literally. And we stand to speak of the faithfulness and the goodness of our God, who carried us when we couldn’t walk, who fed us when we sat under the bush, who has provided us with a home. We have watched our boys grow into the men we prayed they would become, and are so blessed to have amazingly Godly daughters-in-love. Plan B has been awesome.

  145. I am amidst what I would have originally considered to be “Plan B” in my life. However, as I continue to learn to trust God, He is helping me see things through His eyes, and I am beginning to recognize that this “Plan B” was really God’s will for my life……as “Plan A!” I still mourn the loss of my original Plan A, but rejoice in my Lord as He shows me the blessings of Plan B.
    Now, I just need to find comfort in the fact that God does let bad things happen. Yes. Even to Christians. Even though I know that He was with us through our miscarriages, I now struggle with trusting in His goodness in ALL things. Crazy, when I see the blessings of pursuing adoption! 🙂 I’ll get to that place of trust again. Sounds like I need to read this book! :o)

  146. My whole life feels like it’s been Plan B, and being able to come to terms with that would be amazing 🙂

  147. I would love to read Plan B.
    “The wall is the place where I must relinquish what I cling to for identity… Please understand, please prepare yourself because if you haven’t come up against the wall yet, you will eventually.”
    This quote really made me think about how we will hit a few walls in our life. I’m hitting one now. I’m second guessing everything, trying to find out where God fits into all this and how I can become completely his. You know, I think there’s a point in all of our lives where we think, hey, I never thought I’d be here now. And maybe that’s okay. Maybe God has better things planned for us than we could ever think up ourselves. I hope I can come to believe this.

  148. I would appreciate a copy of Plan B. My husband has been unemployed for 18 months now. We are eeking by each day and wondering if this is the new normal.

  149. This book does sound very interesting. I wonder what His plan is for my life. . .Do I rely on Him in those times when the direction changes? Thank you for the opportunity!

  150. I’ve been living this out lately by understanding that maybe God doesn’t want me to have a relationship with my dad. Maybe God has something better. It’s only recently, after years of fighting for the relationship I wanted, that it occurred to me that maybe what I wanted wasn’t what God wanted. Being able to trust him to give me something better than I can imagine is difficult sometimes. That’s where you learn if you really have faith.

  151. After two years of dealing with infertility, I’m slowing seeing the blessing involved. My Plan B is slowly becoming my Plan A, and it’s not as bad as I imagined, though Pete’s book would surely help. 😉

  152. I would love a copy of the book because I am living a plan B and am struggling through it. Books like this one that are faith-based have been helpful in opening my eyes to truths expressed in scripture as I go through this crisis in my life. My plan A was to have a baby in December and spend the rest of my life being a stay at home mom raising my daughter and future children. Unfortunately the night my daughter was born my life began to turn towards plan B. My baby was rushed to a level 3 NICU 5 hrs away. 4 days later she was diagnosed with a lethal genetic disorder and we were told she was incompatible with life. When she was 36 days old she died. The pregnancy was normal and there were no indications that my life would turn upside down like it has. I am 25 years old. It was my first child. We live 18 hrs away from family and friends because we are in the military. I didn’t have a full time job lined up because I thought I had my full time job as a mom lined up. I am in the middle of plan B and sometimes it just feels plain hopeless. I need as much encouragement and truth as I can get. Thanks.

  153. Right now my plan A is on extremely shaky grounds and is falling apart by the minute. What I thought was the plan for my life is quickly changing and I don’t know what to do with it. I am hoping and praying to find God’s plan B even if I see it nor like it at first. I need direction for my life and to stop fearing that even if the “worst” happens to me and my young daughter, we will be okay.

  154. I would love to win the book Plan B because it sounds encouraging.Thank you for the opportunity to win and to Pete Wilson for writing the book.

  155. I’d love to win because I love books! But more than that, I have definitely lived a Plan B life and hearing someone else’s perspective would be beneficial.

  156. I remember when I realized life would not always flow the way I envisioned it. I decided to think of myself as a soft pretzel (flexible, malleable) rather than a hard pretzel (rigid and crumbling under pressure). The book, Plan B, will be a reminder to me and a resource for those with whom I share the book.

  157. I’m pretty sure I’m on Plan C or D. My life-though richly blessed in many tangible ways-is not the life I thought I’d have. And through it the Lord has been stripping me of expectations *I never knew I clung to*. I’ve been waiting on my circumstances to change so I could serve God in the way I envisioned. I’d love this book to learn ways that Plan B is divinely planned in order for me to serve Him best.

  158. My plan A is being shattered as I type. I don’t have a clue what my plan B is … or rather, what God’s plan B is for my life. I am fearful of the unknown for myself and my children; yet, I am seeking His will and direction. Have heard reviews for the book and am very interested in reading (“winning”) a copy. Thank you so much!!

  159. I see that I’m not the only one here who feels like I’m living my plan B (or plan H, for holding on). I’d like to learn to live it with as much grace and faith as possible.

  160. I have heard a lot about this book on various blogs and your review especially makes this book one that I am interested in reading!

  161. January 28, 2010~~The day my pre-born grandson died…my daughter is definitely on Plan B for her life. I read part of the book on Amazon.com and it looks like it would be a great book for us to share as we try to heal. Thanks for your consideration…With Love, Karla

  162. my plan A went to plan B unexpectly as my husband of 33 years left me and our 2 disabled adolescents daughters. Being alone and a single parent was not my plan. It is hard.It is not the life I wanted, I have no choice now. During this time I have grown closer to God and felt His presence in my life and of my daughters.
    Friends have held me up during this very difficult time in my life. I try to be grateful for what God has provided whether I like it or not . I surrender myself and the family (including the ex) to God as I start the day asking for strength ,peace and grace to trust HIM. I also think of this line by Max Lucado ,Nothing comes your way that has not first passed thru the filter of His love.

  163. This book has just been coming up over and over to me…it’s just weird, in a really interesting way!

  164. My life has had some unexpected twists and turns. Here is a quote that sums it up: I discovered that I would not be teaching my son all about the world, instead I would be teaching the world about my son. They see a boy who does not speak and I see a miracle that does not need words! My plan A did not turn out exactly the way I thought, but I must admit the journey has made my FAITH so much stronger! It is not about “our plan” but everything to do about God’s Plan. So I am Thankful for those unepected twists and turns that are leading me down a transforming path. One day, one hour, one minute, one second at a time relying on God’s love for me. I would love to win a copy of this book because I believe God is at work in my life and I trust that Plan B will be all about HIM and how he can use me to his likeness for his plan, not mine!

  165. I have always had plan B in my life as things have not worked out as I thought. Currently I am at crossroads as I need a plan B to save my marriage. I have lots of questions why my spouse chose to have plan Bs and leave me and the children. I hope this book will give an insight, answers and hope

  166. the past 2 years I’ve learned alot about my plans vs. His plans. I can write my plan in permanent ink and it can still be erased. It can still be a struggle to give up what I think my nice little life should be. This book definitely is on my reading list, after reading this post.

  167. I’m intrigued by this book and will HAVE to get a copy. I often struggle with trying to do things according to *my* plans, and need constant reminders to let go of my ideas and trust in God’s perfect plans. Thanks for introducing this book to me, and for the giveaway opportunity!

  168. Your article on God’s Plan B has greatly encouraged me and put a smile on my face today as I read it. There have been circumstances in my life that has caused me to have to change my lifestyle and I have been struggling to accept the changes. Knowing that God has a Plan B for our lives to prosper us and not to harm us is starting to allow acceptance of God’s hands upon my present situation.

  169. Great post! This book sounds very interesting. I can’t wait to check it out in depth.

  170. Just in time. My life has just taken a direction that what I thought my plan B won’t cover.

  171. WOW! Even if I do not win this book I will purchase it. I know that in my life I live with heavy cement walls around me. I don’t like to get too happy in life because that is when everything tends to fall apart. I feel like I have lived in a constant fear of the rug getting pulled out from under me once again and not ever being able to recover. I think I need to start my Plan B because Plan A isn’t working out too well for me.

  172. I am in the middle of my Plan B and this book could not come out at a better time.

  173. Wow, I definitely need to read this book. I feel like I’m lost in a series of plan B’s lately and that nothing is goign the way I wanted or expected or hoped for it to. I’m even back to the question of “what do I want to be when I grow up” and question every choice i’ve made career-wise that got me to where I am now… miserable and underpaid and dreading work daily.
    Plan B seems to really stink and although I know God has a plan for me and I have been fervently praying for a while now that he helps me to find my way and get on track with His will for my life, I just cant seem to get there from here.

  174. I would love to read this book. I’ve heard a lot about it. Life never seems to go as planned and this seems like it would give me good tools I could use when disappointment comes.

  175. I would so love to win a copy of this book…Plan B started a long time ago in my marriage and is now starting in raising my 16 yr old daughter.
    One thing I am sure, God is always close by my side!!!

  176. I can tell this book is something I need to read. The other night I woke up realizing that what I’m living now is not the way I want my life. Not the way it was suppose to be. Now I’m wondering how I’m going to go about living the way that it is.
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  177. I had dreamed of being a stay at home mom, and due to life choices and experiences, my husband has had that blessing instead and I’m the one working. Definitely Plan B in my opionion and am slowly realizing the blessings and instruction that God intended for me, even while living my Plan B.

  178. I have read it and it is Awesome…I want another to give away to a friend…
    I have had many Plan B’s and this book is one that highlights the truths of the Bible and the Plan b’s of many in the Old-Testament and the people Pete has met in life…It is a Big reminder no matter what the circumstance …Keep looking up and Keep trusting and HOLD FAST>>> GOD IS THERE>..

  179. I want to read this book. It seems as if life is always making you come up with a plan b.

  180. This is janie again and i just read some of the others that commented …One said her husband had just lost his job…don’t consider me anymore give it to her …I am tooo blessed …I will but another for a friend as a gift…THanks…

  181. This book sounds wonderful. I clearly have had many Plan B’s in my life. Reading what Pete has to say, I hope to be more accepting of where God is leading me.

  182. I am still struggling with the fact the my Plan A is not necessarily God’s Plan A for me. Not knowing what His Plan B is for me really tests my faith…I’m wondering if there is a Plan B or did I just completely fail at the entire plan for my life??

  183. Life always throws Plan Bs at you. Knowing how to respond is always an excellent thing. Getting sick, people moving, business at church etc.

  184. Why would I love this book? I am currently going through a bankruptcy after my husband torpedoed our finances behind my back. I am quickly realizing my Plan A is NOT happening…so now what? Sadly, due to the financial situation my only hope right now of owning this book is actually winning one…so here I am! 🙂
    Thank God He has a plan for us, even if it’s one not of our choosing, right?

  185. I would love to read this book…..I am in the middle of questions of Plan B at 60 yrs old!

  186. I definitely want this book!! I’ve been dying to read it since I found out about it. Sounds so great!! =)

  187. I’ve always dreamed of being a mom. Life isn’t headed that direction any time soon, I don’t think.

  188. Oh Bonnie, I know this post was written some time ago but I think I needed to read it now. I too have been disappointed and am on Plan B. I’ve not read this book although I’ve heard some about it. I think I’ll put it on my list though.
    Sometimes I think that maybe I missed God’s will and that’s why life isn’t what I planned. But maybe Plan B was what He had prepared for me. I’ve much to think about here.
    I appreciate how you write from your heart Bonnie.
    Hugs and blessings,
    Debbie
