A recent listen… Unglued, by Lysa Terkeurst

WOW! Have you read the new book Unglued? I must say it is spot on.

I honestly don’t have the time or energy to read many books so I have a membership through audible.com for audiobooks and have LOVED being able to listen to some great authors.

In her new release Unglued, Lysa helps us take our labels off and address the roots of what “unglues” us. She shares personal experiences from her own life and how God has chiseled her through those times to Lord willing, be a better wife, mom, and woman.

I listened to her until 2am because as she is narrating her own book, she sounds like a friend in my living room. A friend that has made many of my same mistakes. I actually found myself asking God… how could you let her write “my” book? The answer was of course that He hasn’t chiseled my form quite enough yet. I need this book and the practical, common sense advice that is both simple and profound. Why haven’t I already made road maps for responses? I learned in Bible school that you should make a decision about a decision before you have to make the decision. In other words, have a plan and know how to stand in that plan. Don’t come unglued by other people, things, or events, because there is already a procedure in place to follow. WOW. A procedure that has Jesus as it’s core and foundation. How simple, how obvious, and yet how many times do I just lose it and blow my testimony, especially with my greatest ministry right now, my children. Too many times for sure.

I am breezing through this audio book for the first time because I love listening to her and find myself wanting more and more. I know that I will listen again and slow my pace to have a focused change of heart.

I highly recommend this book, and it really isn’t for only women, I have heard the men on K-LOVE radio talking about their own perspective changes that they have learned from this book.
