Unglued Devotional

"Imperfect Progress in
60 Days?"
Bookworm's Ranking - 5 Worms
About - We have all been there. Something happens that makes us become "unglued," our emotions run rampant, and we let it get the better of us. But it doesn't have to be that way. Lysa TerKeurst knows what it is like to completely come undone and let those you love have it or bring yourself down when something totally goes wrong that you wanted to go right. With pertinent (and sometimes funny) stories, Lysa will talk to your heart and situation while giving suggestion on how to end the unglued cycle and start making imperfect progress by turning to the One who loves and created you.

Author - Lysa TerKeurst

Publisher - Zondervan

Age Group - 17 and up

Personal Opinion - Just one minute... Strange. For how much this book depicted what I struggle with, the note in the beginning should have started with "Dear Rachel." I might not be a mom or a wife but totally get the feelings Lysa was talking about. I don't know how many times I have "stuffed," "stewed," and had "toxic thoughts" leading to an explosion later on or self doubts. While reading this book, I tried harder to let God take care of my concerns, prayed more to Him, and got a Bible verse a-day app to give me some uplifting verses. And you want to know what? I think it is working. Shortly before finishing the book I had an instance where it would have been nice to explode on another or stew about it after but I didn't. The only thing different was reading this book, making me think I might be making some "imperfect progress." If only I had taken this advice sooner. The only things I wish had been different were 1) more direct advice on how to handle these situation (but I can see how each person is different so there couldn't be a clear cut, fix-all plan) and 2) had the self-eval on ways you become unglued in the beginning or right after the first couple chapters instead of the end so readers would have been able to identify with chapters speaking on that type better. But, I loved this devotional and am already thinking of people I want to encourage (or buy for) to get this book.

Buy - Amazon, ChristianBook, Barnes and Noble, Publisher,

Special Notes - There is another book, Unglued, that came before this one and a Bible study too that can be found on the author's website.

Disclaimer - In exchange for an honest review, I received this book for free from the publisher through Booksneeze.com.
