Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions

God gave us emotions to experience life, not destroy it! Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has had experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or we 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.

    "Great book! Enjoying it very much."

    I am enjoying this book so much that I bought it in audio and both in paperback and on my kindle too. It is one I will read over and over. It is as if it was written just for me.
    I am very pleased that Lisa read her own book for the audio, as I enjoy hearing the authors narrating their own books instead of someone else.
    Lisa is so real and honest in this book, as she is in Made to Crave (another one of her books that is fabulous.
    Keep up the good work, Lisa. I really enjoy your books.

    "Holds Together Well"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this audiobook to several of my friends already. I am on my second listen and appreciate the sound biblical reminders the book offers when emotions rise and my own thoughts begin to prevail. It has served as a wonderful redirecting of my thoughts back to God's perspective.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked Lysa's vulnerability which she reveals throughout the book. I do not believe I would have stuck with the subject matter had I not believed she actually lived life like the rest of the world.


    What does Lysa TerKeurst bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Of course it is much more enjoyable to listen to the author herself reading how she felt in those particular moments she is sharing. I think the impact can be greater on the listener.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It brought up some memories and examples within my own mind of my life and how much I have to be ready to practice "soul integrity" as she calls it - Godly honesty all of the time in every relationship. I was particularly drawn to her explanation and examples of putting up barriers vs. setting boundaries. I did smile and relate numbers of times with her examples.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this is a REAL girl's book. I would recommend it to any girl/woman who wants to be honest with herself and others and follow a God of honesty and truth.

    "Unglued"

    This was a great read just before the holidays! Read by the author: who does a fabulous job, this book talks about keeping control in tough situations. A great book for anyone struggling to keep control of their emotions.

    "For women"

    I see that this book was written by a woman, but other than that, I didn't really see any indication that it was aimed at women. Maybe I just didn't look hard enough, or maybe it wasn't made clear enough in the description, either way I'm not pleased that I spent money on this thing. The time I spent listening to it, I didn't really care for the author's voice who decided to read her book either. Wouldn't recommend this book, especially for men.

    "Unglued: Making Wise Choices"

    This book is probably perfect for someone with the same problems and reactions and probably young. I am just too old for this book. I wanted to tell this person to grow up for God's sake and stop acting like an out of control pre-teen. When she files off into a rage over a little thing, it is a reaction we recognize as the straw that broke the camel's back. I just couldn't get very far in this book to find out if it ever got better or if she was just going to flop on the ground like a carp over every little thing. Self absorbed without coping skills and how she reacts sums up the book. Yes, I couldn't stand it and tried not to let the horrible person portrayed want to grade this with no stars.

    "Awful!"
    Would you try another book from Lysa TerKeurst and/or Lysa TerKeurst?

    No


    What could Lysa TerKeurst have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I just don't care for all the bible references.


    What three words best describe Lysa TerKeurst’s performance?

    Boring - uninterested - plain


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    This book is obviously for a person who believes in the bible. If you can think for yourself, this book is not for you. Clearly I didn't do my research before I bought it.

    "Great Life Application Points"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Lysa provides some really good advice on how to deal more effectively in relationships. Some relational and spiritual books can go really deep and generate long lists of do’s and don’t’s. This book is NOT like that and keeps the suggestions short, simple and practical. Lysa uses lots of real-life examples of what to do, and not do, to help the reader relate to each topic. This is a "chick" book but I found it very informative as well. My wife and I listened to it together on a recent trip and were barely able to refrain from poking each other with our elbows when the material really hit home with us. Overall, a well written and read book. Highly recommended!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    n/a


    Which character – as performed by Lysa TerKeurst – was your favorite?

    n/a


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Keep the "rules" or "lists" simple. The book's continual mantra is to be realistic. Perfection is NOT realistic, but progress is.

    Story
    "Very real, very true"

    This is my second Lysa TerKeurst book, and I was not disappointed. She is a very real and truthful person. She doesn't hide behind "spiritual" terminology or try to pretend that she has all the answers or has found all the answers. She speaks as an ordinary woman going through the throes of emotion as it comes at her throughout her day and her life.

    She has really good suggestions for dealing with disappointments such as telling yourself, "Even if this happens, it will still be a good day." I liked the practical suggestions, but what I liked most is that she points us to God as a loving, understanding parent, confidant, friend, counselor, and example. Most authors don't get all of these attributes of God accross as well as she does.

    Story
    "Kept me listening and keeps me thinking."
    Would you listen to Unglued again? Why?

    I would listen again to Unglued. To refresh myself on the ideas and the skills she teaches.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unglued?

    There were many memorable moments in Unglued, however I do have to say I believe when she was praying over the woman who had just heard bad news seems to be sticking out to me the most.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene that is my favorite in Unglued is when she is praying over the woman who has just received bad news. And she can't find the right words to say, but she notices that when the name of Jesus is said, the woman slows her panicked breathing. So, all she does is start saying His name over and over. I just love that. And I have used that to actually calm myself, or "glue" myself back together.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Unglued?

    The insight I have gained from Unglued has yet to fully be determined as I have just finished it. However, I know that I didn't stumble upon it by chance or by luck. It was a divine appointment. So, I would have to say, that is still unwritten.
