Plan B by Pete Wilson

Plan B is a book about shattered dreams, about unmet expectations, about people who are unable to see or feel God in the midst of these overbearing circumstances. This books doesn't offer some quick steps to a happy life, but it encourages to a healthy and intimate relationship with the Lord.

I laughed out loud but I also cried reading this book. I love the way Pete Wilson is so personal yet so accurate with the issues that I think everyone can relate to one way or another. He points out a lot of Scripture wisdom to sustain his opinions. Reading his book is like watching him preaching.
I really loved this book, it encouraged me to pursue a much more intimate relationship with my Lord, and to truly trust him even when all the circumstances around me tells me not to, because he is the same, he is who he says he is.

We have all gone through a moment in our lives when we expected God to work in a certain way, but he didn't. Everyone struggled at one point with a shattered dream, or an unmet expectation. Everyone felt alone and desperate, hopeless and helpless at one point or another, waiting for the Lord, but he never really seemed to appear.
Well ... than this book is for you. This book is about you and how can you grow in the middle of those hopeless situations that will eventually come.

Pete Wilson, I want to thank you for taking the time to write this book, for letting God pour from his wisdom through your words, for letting him use you in such an amazing way.
