ungluedUnglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions by Lysa TerKeurst is one of those books that you can’t put down once you start reading it. The author is transparent in sharing personal stories of things that cause her anger and how she allows the Holy Spirit to correct and guide her. She solves the problem of dealing with her strong emotions, while at the same time remaining true to her Christian beliefs. This book is funny, uplifting, and informative…but most of all the book is encouraging for anyone who might struggle with anger. The book reads more like a conversation with a friend…and for this reason it’s widely popular. Lysa writes, “Sure, I will still be vulnerable to coming unglued. Even after reading this book, you will too. Every one of us is susceptible to unpredictable emotions, hormonally influenced emotions. That being said, I still want to equip myself in every way possible to stay out of the emotional fray. I want to stay in the flow of God’s power and participate in His divine nature.” Then she shares her “Biblical Procedure Manuel” for confronting those times when she feels she just might come unglued! The book is fun to read and also filled with wisdom. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

    This book really hit home with me. It felt like it was written just for me. I love her writing style. I learned that the reason I come “unglued” at everything is because I am struggling with letting God be in control…

  • Andi says:

    This book was also entirely true to and directive to The Word. Lysa doesn’t try to fill the book with her own personal strategies – unless they are supported by the Word of God. We did this as a Bible study at our church over the summer and has 105 women attend. Each one of us was blessed beyond our imaginations!
