Sick of It?

I was out with a friend for lunch last week when someone who had just finished reading Plan B approached me. She told me a little about her own “Plan B” and what was currently going on in her life. We exchanged thoughts and as she walked off my friend turned to me and asked, “Are you getting sick of that yet?”

“Sick of what?” I replied.

“Everyone in the world sharing their shattered dreams, disappointments and hurts with you,” he said.

I thought for a moment and simply responded, “Not at all.”

I think when you write a book called Plan B you kind of expect it. I can’t tell you what an honor it’s been over the past eight months to hear your stories. Whether you shared it in person, in the comments of a blog post, or via email I appreciate your bravery, honesty, and desire for healing in your life.

I got word last week that in addition to the Spanish translation it will now be translated into Korean as well!!!  I’m so excited about seeing even more people be impacted by the message of this book and it couldn’t have happened without your continued support.

As we go into these next couple weeks before Christmas, I want to ask you to think about who in your life might benefit from the message of this book. While Christmas is so exciting for many of us, there are also so many people hurting this time of year. For many, Christmas is a painful reminder that their lives are not turning out the way they had hoped. Would you consider giving your book away to them? If you don’t want to give yours away would you consider purchasing a copy for them?

I bet there’s at least one person in your life who desperately needs to know that God is most powerfully present even when He seems most apparently absent.
