Is it obvious what attracted me to this book besides the lack of cost? Unglued is easily a word I can use to describe myself. Being an organized, detailed person, who thinks ahead and puts much thought into everything, the littlest things will tick me off. And I don't mean, oh I'm getting mad. It's more like instant boiling anger in the form of yelling and iffy language. Yes, everyone has their moments, but mine were daily and concentrated on my husband and kids. For a long time I just did what I could because it didn't seem there was anything I could do, the raw emotion was so instantaneous.

Then I read Unglued and TerKeurst's explanations of how people's emotions work stuck with me. I have a combination of two types she discusses. With my family I am what she calls an exploder. Exploders hold nothing back. But, I knew that wasn't all of it because with friends, even if I do get mad, I don't explode on them. The other half of my personality is what TerKeurst calls stuffer. I stuff all negative emotions when dealing with friends and acquaintances and ignore them for as long as possible. Eventually a stuffer's feelings will explode, but it usually takes time. I found that I would take my stuffed feelings home and explode there. Why we take advantage of the ones we love most is beyond me.

Unglued talks about other types of people as well as the negative consequences of raw emotion that you might not see coming. It really opened my eyes and although I don't always think in time to stop myself, I realize as I begin to rant or stuff that I need to stop and think. This is absolutely progress for me - "imperfect progress" as TerKeurst would say, but still progress.

If you've ever felt unimpressed or defeated when those Christmas letters come piling in, informing you that Johnny got straight A's, and Suzie just got a full scholarship, and 'that' family has a well oiled ship running over in their neck of the woods...then you might just love this book! Lysa doesn't put on a facade that she's got this thing called 'life' all tied up with a nice little bow. She bravely uncovers her current struggles and has you laughing at the crazy that goes on in each of our households, she just dares to say it out loud! Refreshing! Who wouldn't want a 'real' friend like that telling you like it is? A 'what you see is what you get' kind of girl, but with some solid answers straight from the giver of life Himself. She has an engaging way of inviting you to be more authentic as you share your life with those in your circle. The more transparent we are with others, the more magnetic we become. She says, "What happens in between the smiling snapshots of life isn't all pretty. I'm willing to admit that. And I love my friends who are brave enough to admit the messy stuff as well." I'm grateful that I had received an advanced copy of part of this book to review, and I chuckle at the things we all tend to come unglued over(the basic dog throw up, towels, broken computers...the list goes on.) Run out and grab a copy, help is on the way!

Unglued is so incredibly helpful! I have found myself pulling it out again and again.

The other day I got an email that was about to make me come UNGLUED. :) Before I responded, I remembered this statement from the book:

"I may not be gentle by nature but I can be gentle by obedience."

When I replied back to this person, I prayed through my words and realized that because of God, I always have that gentleness inside me. I felt empowered to respond back in a gentle way.

Lysa is so authentic in this book. Her wisdom has helped me understand how to deal with conflict, difficult relationships and how to not let things like an email ruin my day.

This book will challenge you! Must read!!!!

When I first watched the video and listened to Lysa talk about Her HAIR ! I thought how shallow have we become as a people?
There are so much bigger problems in the world than worrying about our hair!

But then I started reading the book and reading the devotional, and I find myself on every page.

And I have a teenager. Its easy to come unglued with a teenager.. forget the Hair! Lysa talked about, teenagers can figure out ways to push our buttons in other ways. And my daughter pushes my buttons deliberately, just to watch me come unglued.

Last night after a coming unglued moment with my husband and my teen, I picked up the devotional and tried to read it, but I couldn't because I had so many tears streaming down my face. The devotional hit the nail on the head, precisely written, for that very moment ... it is amazing how God is so there, at just the right moment.

This book may be boring, or not what a reader expected ( some of the reviews I read here),

but I have to wonder in this present day in which we live, being assaulted on every side by all kinds of stressors and situations, if Lysa has not written a really timely book, for such a time as this.

She calls it Unglued, but how bout road rage ? or the rudeness of people lately? being cut off in lines, and just discourtesy everywhere. How about blatant dishonesty and disrespectful behavior.. entitlement mentality.. just stuff that we are assaulted with every day, continuously, unending stressors that sneak in under the wire until enough is enough? No wonder we come unglued.

Every time I pick up Lysa's books, especially this Unglued set of books & video, every time, they speaks right to me and to my moment, and the situation I happen to be going through.
