Not Part of the Plan- GirlDefined

I was so thankful to again be chosen to be a part of the launch team for GirlDefined’s new book: “Not Part of the Plan: Trusting God with the twists and turns of your story.” I was so excited when they announced this new book. I’ve been so encouraged as I’ve followed the story of Bethany’s long journey of singleness and Kristen’s trial of infertility.

And then there was Eliza who was not able to live with her own husband because he belonged to a different master.  And then she overheard her owner say that he was going to sell her young son.  She made a desperate move and ran away.  But would she be able to get to Canada before they found her?
This book was a hard book to read but a good one because of the tales it tells...and how God worked through the salves and salve owners!
