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. Their openness to these struggles have encouraged me so much as I see their love for the Lord grow even in the midst of hard.

Polly O'Keefe is staying with her grandparents the Murrys.  The Murry's live in a small town were they're only friends are Dr. Louise Colubra and her brother, Bishop Colubra, who soon become good friends with Polly.  Bishop Colubras has somehow opened a time gate into the past that only he and Polly can go into and out.  Polly's grandparents try to keep her safe, so they're always keeping in eye on her.  But one day when Polly's friend Zachary, who is deathly ill, is in town, they both go into the time gate.  But the time gate closed as they were in and they are now stuck in the past.  But thankfully Bishop Colubra is in it with them. But how will the three of them get back into their own time?  I liked this book!


  1. Sounds like the movie Back to the Future starring Michael J Fox, which came out in 1984, and revived skateboarding's popularity for the 80's.

I wish I could go back to 1984, then maybe my clothes would be in style too. (your grandma's too, sshhh) Ha!

  2. Hey Alyssa. This also sounds like a very good book to read. Love you very much, Grandma
