Unglued Devotional - book review

I absolutely love Lysa TerKeurst. I only "met" her last year while doing Made To Crave with MOMS group. She teaches from the heart and speaks plainly. Lysa TerKeurst feels like the kind of lady that I would openly invite to hang with us for some FPT. When I saw that Booksneeze was offering the Unglued Devotional, I jumped at the chance to read it.

 60 days of imperfect progress. Each day has a thought provoking title, a Bible verse, a Thought for the Day, and the devotional. It's a "journey in learning to positively process raw emotions, such as fear anger, and regret."

Lysa TerKeurst does such a great job describing Unglued and what that looks and feels like. You can picture a moment that you have come unglued just as she described it or pretty darn close. Or...maybe that's just me. I needed to read this book right now and have it be the devotional and not the whole book. I would read a day in the morning and another at night and sometimes when I was starting to feel unglued, I'd pick it up in the middle of the day. It seemed to be the right verse or story for the moment that I was living in.

I'm sad to be at the end of the book. I almost want to give it a permanent place in my purse. Then I think of all the other unread books out there fighting for that coveted spot. Which means that I may need to get a copy for my Kindle.

I would recommend this book to any mom out there. I would recommend this book to anyone who deals with children of any age. I would even recommend this book to men who deal with unglued women. She does such a great job helping you see what being unglued is and how to get a handle on it.

I love "imperfect progress". It describes perfectly what it's like to work through being unglued to being a better Christian. I don't know that I will ever become a completely glued together person. But I am definitely making imperfect progress. This devotional inspired me to carry a packet of a few of the Bible verses from the book. So that when I start to feel unglued I can pull them out and refocus my energies.
