Bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst does it again with Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions, a wonderful book that will help the reader realize that the choices they make help to determine what outcomes they will face. Lysa shares how emotions aren’t bad, but emotions that are out of control can cause damage to oneself as well as to others around them. She shares four categories of unglued reactions and how they impact one’s life. Later in the book she discusses those who stuff things inside of themselves and those who explode upon anyone and everyone around them.

This is a much needed book for anyone who finds themselves in a pressure cooker and needs help to deal with life’s circumstances. Offered within this book are time sensitive ways to deal with the pressure before the pressure controls the person. Lysa writes in a very relational and real way and allows the reader to discover that she lives what she is writes about. Rather than sitting behind a keyboard coming up with the next bestseller, this book comes from her experiences in life and how she has learned to handle the circumstances that she is faced with on a daily basis.

Remember no matter whom we are, we aren’t all bad and everything around us isn’t as horrible as sometimes it seems. Lysa helps the reader to dig deep within themselves and lean upon God for better clarity of how to allow their thoughts, actions and deeds become those which Christ desires for us to display. This isn’t a fix all book, rather a real, down to earth approach to how everyone from corporate America to the rural farms of Kentucky can learn to become wise in the choices they make in the midst of unglued situations.
