Unglued by Lysa Terkeurst - Review

Not too long ago I was given the opportunity to read the Unglued Devotional that corresponds with this book by Lysa TerKeurst. 
After finishing it, I decided to try out the book.

In her book, Lysa shares how God is leading her on a path of imperfect progress. She talks about her own experiences with coming emotionally unglued, as well as how to reign in those experiences and let our emotions work for us rather than against us. Lisa gives a plan for resolving conflict with confidence, finding peace in difficult relationships, and identifying what type of reactor you are to improve your communication skills.

My Thoughts:
Lysa's book and devotional have been helpful to me in opening my eyes a little more to see what God expects. And in recognizing that when I do fall short, or my raw emotions come out, there is a lesson to be learned. She has given me a different perspective and many key tips for not coming unglued at the drop of a hat. I would recommend this book and accompanying devotional to every mom, who may be struggling to get a grip on her emotions. Maybe you, yourself, don't need it, but we can all learn something from it. It is inspiring me to give my emotions over to God and let Him be in control.  Personally, I found the book and devotional to be similar in content. A person would not necessarily require both, unless maybe using it as a study or possibly really struggling with this area of your life.

Your Thoughts:
In what areas do you possibly struggle with coming unglued? When things do not go as planned, how do you react? What methods do you practice to keep it all together?  Do you see imperfect progress as progress, or simply get discouraged for not always getting it right?

Lisa's book is available on Amazon along with her devotional, and other resources.
