Book Review: What Keeps You Up At night by Pete Wilson






What Keeps You Up At Night by Pete Wilson offers a good glimpse into fear and faith. I often wish God would just offer a few words to clue me in on what is happening when I am blindsided by something in my life. For example, this week we learned we cannot close on the house we are buying because the owner does not have a clear title. The owner has dementia and the family is left to sort out if this is an error or what has happened. Frustrating for them and for us as we put our lives on hold and wait to see if we get this house or have to start house shopping all over again. We all have situations come up like this one that keep us up at night wondering about.

According to Pete's new book, we  need to learn to lean into uncertainty and activate our faith. Pete says every single one of us struggle with fear at some point in our lives.In What Keeps You Up at Night , he shares how we can lean into Scripture and learn from it to keep our faith up in our own challenges. Wilson shares stories from several Bible names we know: David, Daniel, Joseph, and more. He also shares stories from his own life to help guide readers into seeing how to best find peace in their own situation.

I liked this book as much as all of his other books. I especially like that each chapter ends with a review of the key points, questions to reflect on and something "hands on" to do that will help you retain the lesson shared in the chapter you just read. I highly recommend this book for someone of any age that wants to learn how to better have faith and peace in the midst of life's challenges.

I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.
