Unglued Devotional Book Review


Ever have moments of being "Unglued"? Ha! Don't we all! This is a great devotional and companion that help us women put our overactive emotions in check! Emotions are good, as long as we are directing them positively and they aren't dictating our day.

Lysa may share moments of being unglued with her children, but she also shares moments with her friends, co-workers, and husband. So no matter what point you are at in your life, this book is sure to grab you! 

Within this book you will find stories of personal experiences that Lysa has endured herself. One thing I love about Lysa and her books is that she is not sharing anything she has not lived first. As women we can be very emotional creatures, and the chaos of our long days filled with many "to do's" leave us extra stressed and ready to blow. In this new devotional you will find moments of peace with encouraging scriptures and "thoughts for the day" that prepare you to tackle your day before your emotions tackle you.

Many may ask, "Must I read the book first or with this devotional?" I will say, you most certainly can, as I have read the book, "Unglued;" however, I have found that it is not necessary! Please note that she does share some of the same stories in the book as she does in this devotional.

My recommendation is that if you have already read the book, then this is a GREAT "review" and tool to practically apply all that you have learned. So, I would read it AFTER the book itself, if possible. I do know that many women just don't have time to read a chapter book, so this devotional would also be perfect and ideal to read by itself in lieu of the book, as you are getting the same tools in a shorter and more practical way. 

The whole concept of the book is "imperfect progress." We are imperfect creatures so no matter what, on some days that we are trying, we may still fail, but it's okay. Lysa reminds us of the Grace our Heavenly Father gives us. Within this 60 day devotional, Lysa also provides 5 Procedure Manuals mid-way to help you plan for those moments when we feel like coming unglued. These are great steps that help us think through over raging emotions and find the peace of God in a not so peaceful moment.
