Book Review: Unglued Devotional

Posted on April 7, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |

UngluedIn her devotional book Unglued (a companion to the bestselling book), Lysa Terkeurst takes the reader along on her own journey of learning how to overcome those emotions and situations that threaten to make us come “unglued.” It is broken up into readings for 60 days, each beginning with a scripture and a “thought for the day” and ending with a prayer. In between, Lysa shares personal stories that illustrate the struggle she has with controlling her emotions and reactions, bringing in what God has taught her (and is still teaching her) and wisdom from the Bible.

I thought this was an excellent devotional. It is very easy to read and each day’s reading is brief, making it very manageable for a short devotional time, even on busy mornings. I most appreciated Lysa’s genuineness and honesty. She admits her struggles and failures with tackling these issues and continually emphasizes that this is something she is still learning. She focuses on “imperfect progress” and encourages the reader to strive for that as well. Her words consist of humorous stories of the craziness of life and emotions that most women can relate to, and practical ways to try to take control in those moments. Lysa is very insightful and puts things in ways that I had never thought of before.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to work on this area of their lives or is looking for a good devotional.
