Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions | [Lysa TerKeurst]

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.

    Story
    "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.

    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.

    "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.

    I enjoyed listening to this. I tried reading the book and couldn't stay focused. But listening to Lisa was like talking with a girl friend.

    "Something every mom does daily!"

    Another great writing by Lysa. You can always know you will get God's Word, laughter and situations that you can relate to.
