Publisher's Summary

Do you ever feel like your emotions are working against you? Though we may find ourselves stuffing down emotions, exploding with emotions, or reacting somewhere in between, Lysa TerKeurst assures us it’s possible to make our emotions work for us. 

Lysa admits that she, like most women, has had experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. But the good news is, God gave us emotions to experience life, not destroy it. With gut-honest personal examples and biblical teaching, Lysa shows us how to use our emotions for good. 

Unglued will equip you to:

  • Know with confidence how to resolve conflict in your important relationships 
  • Find peace in your most difficult relationships as you learn to be honest but kind when offended 
  • Identify what type of reactor you are and how to significantly improve your communication 
  • Respond with no regrets by managing your tendencies to stuff, explode, or react somewhere in between 
  • Gain a deep sense of calm by responding to situations out of your control without acting out of control

Listen, re listen, and then listen again

I run to this book every time I have an issue with my husband, mother, siblings, friends, teachers, really anyone that I wrestle with. Lysa gives such amazing advice on how to handle both the everyday and the tough situations with grace and mercy.

Not for Me

I should've done more research on the author. Based on the Audible sample, I felt the material would be relatable. However, it's just too saturated with Bible/Jesus/God talk for me. I found it to be sappy, and more of an affirmation of God's love than a guide for controlling emotion. It's probably perfect for the religious listener. Very rooted in scripture and faith.

this book is a game changer

I'm a working mom, full time student, and a step mom so I frequently come unglued. I had come to a point in my life where I said to God, "what now Lord?! What do I do?!" I began to listen to this book and ever since I started it, my thinking has been transformed and I have seen the effects of this book in life and marriage. If you have ever felt unglued then please get this book! you won't be disappointed!

Unglued: Making Wise Choices

This book is probably perfect for someone with the same problems and reactions and probably young. I am just too old for this book. I wanted to tell this person to grow up for God's sake and stop acting like an out of control pre-teen. When she files off into a rage over a little thing, it is a reaction we recognize as the straw that broke the camel's back. I just couldn't get very far in this book to find out if it ever got better or if she was just going to flop on the ground like a carp over every little thing. Self absorbed without coping skills and how she reacts sums up the book. Yes, I couldn't stand it and tried not to let the horrible person portrayed want to grade this with no stars.

Encouraging Biblically based book

This was a wonderful, Biblically based and encouraging book detailing the inner workings of our hearts and the types of emotional responses we are prone to as a result of those things. I very much enjoyed this introspective look into my own heart, and I 100% recommend this to fellow believers. It is geared toward women, but I believe it could be beneficial to all. Thanks for another phenomenal book, Lysa!

All moms need to hear

As a mom of 4 small children I struggle with feeling unglued when I'm too low on sleep and too tight on time. When I do become unglued I struggle with the shame and guilt that follow. Lisa's book encouraged me that I am not alone in my struggle, what I can do with it, and how God can use it.

Unexpected

Never expected this book to be this good. initially I put it down bc I thought it would be for women only. but to much of my surprise it's universal. I like the raw natural of the book. You are on messed up woman. I say that in a good way bc you held nothing back from your home life. it's was refreshing. You didn't actually like you had it all together. You were really relatable. Thanks for the read (listen).

Great book! Enjoying it very much.

I am enjoying this book so much that I bought it in audio and both in paperback and on my kindle too. It is one I will read over and over. It is as if it was written just for me.
I am very pleased that Lisa read her own book for the audio, as I enjoy hearing the authors narrating their own books instead of someone else.
Lisa is so real and honest in this book, as she is in Made to Crave (another one of her books that is fabulous.
Keep up the good work, Lisa. I really enjoy your books.

Totally helpful eye-opening read!

I love how Lysa is so open to sharing with us all about her short comings and struggles in order to better help us in the same areas. If you are an emotional person (exploder or stuffer) this book helps to open our eyes and point us to Christ! Definitely worth the read and I know it can help anyone who reads it. Lysa also does a great job reading it and she is able to get you into the emotion she is feeling because she is also the author. I recommend to anyone looking to become more grounded in their faith!

Relatable, insightful and practical

Enjoyed listening to this book. Easy to listen and understand. Even Lysa voice is easy to listen to. Lots of relatable examples, biblical truths and practical steps. This is my second book from her and both have been valuable and timely in my faith journey.
