Book review: Unglued Devotional
 From the Back:

 This companion devotional to the bestselling book Unglued provides encouragement to help readers handle emotional struggles.
  • Live in the grace of making imperfect progress even on those days when your emotions throw you for a loop.
  • Be a more positive role model to your family and coworkers as you shift from overreacting to speaking life-giving words.
  • Know with confidence how to resolve conflict in your closest relationships.
Including a daily opening Scripture, thought for the day, devotion, and closing prayer, this book will help you make progress in how you react to break the cycle of exploding or stuffing your emotions

My Reflections: 

This book includes 60 short and thought-provoking devotionals with extremely candid and imperfect, personal experiences from author Lysa Terkeurst.

Terkeurst gives us a glimpse into her world of flawed perfection.
She allows us a snippet of a glance into her life, of family and ministerial experiences by exposing her heart without holding back.

I really enjoyed her candor, and often times I felt like Lisa and I were good friends sitting down to our hot coco at Starbucks, discussing… “one of those days”.

Each devotional starts with bible verse, a thought for the day and an encouraging, hope filled reading, that guides you to accept the grace and mercy available to you through the love of God.

I certainly enjoyed Terkeurst’s devotional. The blend of authentic down to earth writing intermingled with solid God centered and biblical principles makes this devotional a real gem, a pleasure to start your day with.

I found my mornings to be energized and I felt encouraged to be the best mom, wife woman God gives me the grace to be.

Another plus is the short, concise size of the devotions. Tekeurst knows us moms are busy, and the devotion is perfectly distributed with thoughtful, sincere writings that get your day started with God at the forefront.
So if you find the pattern of your life is progressing like this: blow up, stuff it down and are generally just  feeling overwhelmed, this devotion is for you.

I would truly encourage you to not only pick up this devotional but also the companion book Unglued Making Wise Choices in the midst of Raw Emotions.

I received this book compliments of Book sneeze and Zondervan, free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Book sneeze!
