Unglued by Lysa Terkeurst

Emotions and choice? They go hand in hand. I love how Lysa teaches that we need to allow our emotions to work for us not against us. That alone is powerful wisdom for us Jesus girls. (I too like how she calls us that)

When you pick up, "Unglued", you are going to find a vast wealth of information that will  help you to be "glued" to the Savior. Feeling whole and complete in Him.

In reading, "Unglued", it's as though your having a cup of coffee with Lysa and your just chatting over life. You know, the real stuff. The stuff we keep hidden and shut out from everyone else. Lysa has this way of making you feel comfortable. She is open and honest in her own struggles.

She teaches us about sweet grace and just how pure it is. How there are not really two of us. Not really one that the world sees and one that is a mess, but one person. One soul that Christ loves.

I love the cover. Now, my purses are mighty big and there have been times I just wanted to stick my head in and forget all else.

This is one of those stand out books that is real and personal. Lysa's personality shines through this book. I giggled with her and my heart has grown from her wise words.

The subtitle says it all, "Making Wise Choices In The Midst Of Raw Emotions". We learn about labels and how they are so unfair. I asked myself if I am a "Stuffer" or an "Exploder". For me, I am a combination of both. Bottom line, when we learn about our emotions and our personality, we can grow into the beautiful woman that Christ is creating us to become. Imperfections and all.

This book was a gift from Zondervan for its review.
