Recent years have witnessed the disappointments of women across the country who find themselves let down by everything from marriages to careers, from parenting issues to health concerns. In a new book from ministry leader and Bible teacher Debbie Taylor Williams, The Plan A Woman in a Plan B World: What to Do When Life Doesn’t Go According to Plan (Leafwood Publishers, 2010) speaks to the causes, effects, and answers for these difficult times—and delivers her message with wisdom, humor, personal experiences, and biblical insight.
Debbie Taylor Williams helps women realize through biblical teaching and true life stories that settling for less in life is not an option when things don’t turn out as planned. 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. However, 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, readers 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 head winds of struggle, Williams encourages and inspires at every turn to move from the discouragement of the Plan B world into the fulfillment and overpowering joy of God’s Plan A for your life.
The Plan A Woman in a Plan B World includes encouraging true stories of women who have faced Plan B disappointments and tragedies and trusted God to fulfill their hopes and dreams. It provides practical advice from women on how to have a Plan A spirit and helps women gain a sense of humor about Plan B circumstances. Lisa Harper, a Women of Faith speaker and author, responded to the book by saying, “Williams reminds us that when our stories play out differently than we would’ve written them, our Creator Redeemer is still in control and He will ultimately transform the tangles of our lives into a gorgeous tapestry of grace.”
