Book Review for Unglued by Lysa TerKeurst
Unglued: Making Wise Choices In The Midst Of Raw Emotions — This is a self-help book to help you through life and to think about making wise choices. Every woman in this world has imperfect progress. We, as women think we lack control and sometimes destroy our relationships. I know we all experience short-temper, shame, fear, and frustration. The information this book gives us why we come Unglued is because we have bad emotions, we feel broken and very Unglued.
I am sure we all have been on the receiving end of unglued behavior and to experience that painful sting of disrespect that makes you want to hurt the one who hurt you. You start thinking that the emotional demands keep coming, unrelenting security, wondering if anyone appreciates you. You feel tired, stressed, and hormonal plus wonders how this behavior can be fixed. Well, girls, we won’t ever be fixed, but having the hope of imperfect progress does the body good. We all will still mess up and the changes wouldn’t come instantly, but I believe we girls think if we don’t make instant progress, then real change isn’t coming. The beautiful reality is called Imperfect Progress, which this book helps you through.
Here is how it will work: Imperfect changes are slow steps of progress wrapped in grace…imperfect progress. Here is something the author wrote that you might want to write down to help you get through this imperfect progress through life.
Progress. Just make progress. It’s okay to have setbacks and the need for do-overs. It’s okay to draw a line in the sand and start over again — and again. Just make sure you’re moving the line forward. Move forward. Take baby steps, but at least take steps that keep you from being stuck. Then change will
So, I say continue to read this entire book to help you have hope for imperfect progress. I know you will get there and this book will have some of your answers, probably not all the answers.
I read this book several years ago, but I am working on adding all books that I read with the yearly reading challenges that Goodreads does every year. I originally read this book with a bible study group back in 2013. It was a very awesome book to read. I will be putting the above message somewhere so I can remember this. Since it has been a while, I may read it again sometime. Lysa TerKeurst is one of my favorite Christian authors. This book gave you a way to make wise choices when you are in the season of not making wise choices.
