Book Review: Unglued Devotional 60 Days of Imperfect Progress by Lysa TerKeurst

With three busy kids, four cats, a crazy dog, an overworked husband, two home businesses, and a never ending to-do list, I can honestly admit that the word “unglued” has entered my vocabulary more than a time or two over the years. While I try to minimize, my “unglued” moments--I’m not always a shining example of patient, loving parenting. I’ve mentioned before that I get sucked into book titles and I just had to read and review Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress by Lysa TerKeurst! What did I think of Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress by Lysa TerKeurst?

About the Book

This companion devotional to the bestselling book Unglued:  Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions by Lysa TerKeurst provides encouragement to help readers handle emotional struggles. Including a daily opening Scripture, Thought for the Day, devotion, and closing prayer, this book helps readers begin a 60-day journey in learning to positively process raw emotions, such as fear, anger, and regret.

 My Review

The Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress is well written, easy to read, & encouraging. Whether reading this book as a companion or as a stand alone book, I think this devotional fills a purpose for readers. I actually read the book in short, daily bursts each afternoon while waiting for my daughters after school. The book does not flow from start to finish--but, meanders through the author’s real life where she shares daily experiences that tested her personal resolve and “glue strength”. I enjoyed the fact that I could pick up the book daily or after a few days and simply enter a new moment--and consider the author’s advice and prayers--without maintaining a story line. My own life meanders--and the events that may test my strength and “glue” vary widely from day to day!

Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress helps readers refocus--daily. TerKeurst reminds us of appreciation and gratitude repeatedly. TerKeurst notes that her life is not all that bad--even when less than perfect events move in and test her. This devotional helps readers refocus on the bigger picture--and remember to appreciate the things we have and avoid the pitfalls of life's trivial little ups and downs.

Would I recommend Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress by Lysa TerKeurst? I came to appreciate my daily readings of this book--and I do think it helped me better understand and accept my raw emotions and focus on better management of those emotions. Like the author, I’m not likely to remain perfectly glued daily--but, I do think that the book helped me accept my own "imperfect progress". If you seek ways to “strengthen” your own emotional “glue”--add this book for your routine for several weeks. Sometimes just a few minutes of positive thinking does wonders for a parent's "glue" strength!
