Unglued by Lysa Terkeurst - REVIEWED

About the Book: (from Harpercollins)
Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or react somewhere in between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how.
Filled with gut-honest personal examples and Biblical teaching, Unglued will equip you to: * Know with confidence how to resolve conflict in your important relationships. * Find peace in your most difficult relationships as you learn to be honest but kind when offended. * Identify what type of reactor you are and how to significantly improve your communication. * Respond with no regrets by managing your tendencies to stuff, explode or react somewhere in between. * Gain a deep sense of calm by responding to situations out of your control without acting out of control. Sessions include: Session 1: Grace for the Unglued Session 2: Freedom for the Unglued Session 3: Four Kinds of Unglued Session 4: A Procedure Manual for the Unglued Session 5: Lingering Words for the Unglued Session 6: Imperfect Progress for the Unglued

My Thoughts:
His truths and examples from Scripture are powerful enough to redirect me to the divine natures I’m meant to have.  Having a predetermined plan from Him will help me stay calmer when I start to feel unglued   (p 107)
Lysa Terkeurst has written a very important book that is built around a very foundational truth…God’s Word.  This is a very important book to read if you are concerned that your reactions to the stimuli in life are less than godly.  In fact, Lysa believes that any time we come unglued or stuff our emotions inside, that is an indicator that there are spiritual and emotional issues that need to be addressed.   God’s Word is where truth is found to redirect and refocus our lives and change our reactions. That is important, because how we react affects our testimony in the lives of others.
Unglued was a God appointment in my life, just as I feel like it will be in the lives of many others.  I want to encourage everyone to read this book with an open heart before God.  It will change your life.  I am so thankful that Lysa was obedient to God and wrote this book!  I highly recommend this book to everyone!
