Publisher's Summary

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. 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

    "I AM NOT WHAT I THOUGT, I AM NORMAL!"

    Having a challenging time balancing marriage, motherhood, ministry, and s desire to work outside the home. Found myself yelping at spouse, kids, birds, etc. But I love God, why am I acting unloving? This book truly gave me a sense of calmness in knowing that I'm not alone.

    "Imperfect progress and Space for Grace"

    Two mantras I will take with me forever. So nice the book is read by the author has there are some
    Brave testimonials made more believable as she's reading them. Such a cheerful, funny and caring voice to walk is through such a debilitating, ugly, raw, embarrassing and shameful mine field of emotions. I love this book and will refer to it again and again if even just the epilogue. Thank you for this gift, I applied it immediately the very next day and saw wonderful results for myself and others. Imperfect progress using space for grace.

    "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.

    Story
    "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
    "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.

    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.

    Story
    "It hits home for working and stay at home moms"
    Where does Unglued rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is a top book for me when it comes to my life as a mom


    What about Lysa TerKeurst’s performance did you like?

    Lisa was herself and genuine in her story telling. I could picture myself in every single one of her situations!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is a book that I could have listened to in all one sitting. But I enjoyed taking it in bits in pieces.


    Any additional comments?

    Let's see...I laughed, I cried and I had deep thoughts...My only caution is to folks that are not Christian...this book is a Christian book and if that bothers you, you may not enjoy the read as much. That being said, the story is entertaining no matter what faith you choose to follow.
