Unglued Devotional, Book Review

 Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress
by Lysa TerKeurst

The subtitle of this book says it all: Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress.  Most of our progress goes that way, after all, making changes over time, making mistakes, picking ourselves up and trying again thanks to God’s amazing unglueddevotionalmercies new every morning.  It’s progress, but imperfect progress.

And that’s okay.  Sometimes we don’t even feel like trying to overcome things like emotional pitfalls and our out-of-control tongue or our broken relationships because we’re afraid of failing.  This book encourages us to just start moving forward.

If you’ve read Lysa TerKeurst’s book, Unglued, this 60-day devotional simply breaks down the basic themes of the book into small daily bites.  It’s “review” in a good way, in a way that slows you down and makes you think and apply what you’re reading instead of rushing through chapter after chapter and never really putting it all into practice.

This devotional can also stand alone for those totally unfamiliar with the original book.  It covers how we react and respond to others and to stress, how to boss our emotions around instead of letting them control us, and how to improve our relationships within our homes and outside of them.

Ever-practical and always downright open, vulnerable and real, Lysa TerKeurst is the perfect guide through this journey to emotional control not because she’s got it all figured out and is perfect, but because she’s willing to tell about her own struggles to learn these lessons.  And we need that.  We need someone to be honest enough to say, “Hey, I’ve been there, sometimes I’m still there, and I can tell you there is victory with Christ.”

I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
