“Unglued is one of the MOST practical and helpful biblically based books I have read in as long as I can remember. This book helped me to identify and deeply understand my emotions and how to use them to glorify God and not condemn others. When I purchased Unglued, I was at the end of my rope, feeling like my emotions would always be the end of me. I knew I was a loving and compassionate woman deep inside, but I was constantly reminded by my actions that I never let that show due to my lack of emotional control. I have highlighted and tabbed this book to death and I continually reference it when I feel like I am struggling! I can’t express how blessed I have been in my relationships since reading Unglued. I am now able to show the world the beautiful, compassionate, kind, patient and loving woman God created me to be!” – Mackenzie B.
“To quote my husband, ‘I’m not sure what book you are reading but please keep reading it.’ I loved the book, the message and the change in myself that I (and my husband) have seen. I have been guilty of coming unglued in many circumstances, especially with my children, by yelling and screaming at those I love and adore the most. I can’t thank you enough for this real, amazing and fun read. Truly a life-changer.” – Angela M.
“Unglued did so much for me I had to write. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your honesty and vulnerability. I literally felt like you were writing about me…wow!!! You have taught me that I’m not alone with my emotions…I cannot tell you how much I could relate to each one of your stories. I was absolutely in awe of the similarities…like I have a clone! I could not put it down and I plan on reading it again to make sure I get every delicious nugget out of it. I too have 5 children in my home (2 biological daughters and 3 step sons) and boy, have I let my emotions get the best of me at times…and then would “walk the hall of shame.” You have challenged me to imperfect progress sister and for that, I am eternally grateful.” – Stephanie H.
“Because of what I’ve read in Unglued, I’ve started owning up to the fact that some conflicts in my life could be avoided if I had done my part in communicating. And although my reactions aren’t always perfect, there is progress. Thank you, Lysa, for having the courage to be honest about your problems so the rest of us can be open and honest about ours, see our faults, tendencies, and ways to make changes.” – Denise H.
“I was totally convicted about building barriers. I had no idea that was what I was doing … or even the reasons I was doing it. You helped me bring clarity to this and I believe it will help me tremendously in many of my relationships to learn to speak up, honestly, but lovingly … instead of stuffing my feelings inside.” – Buffi Y.
“I had an ‘aha’ moment in every paragraph. I highlighted everything that spoke to me, and my book now looks like a Christmas tree. There is more highlighted than not … the pattern I see most in my circle of women is not resolving conflict in a healthy way. I love the way Lysa helps us with the process we should take to resolve conflict God’s way.” – Tracy C.
“Lysa hasn’t identified our actions and reactions, she has given us a set of instructions as a template for us to challenge our way of thinking; and, through prayer, we can write our own manual to deal with our emotional reactions. This book has made me think about how I react to things and that I have a choice and a clear, precise action plan to change things with the help of God. This lesson will not just overcome a life challenge but change my life.” – Michelle C.
“I knew this was a book I needed to read as lately I’ve found myself in the state of being unglued. I have 5 young children, which means someone always needs my attention and my house is never quiet. I’ve never been a screamer, but in these first few chapters I realize I’ve always been unglued. I have always been a stuffer, which like Lysa shares, leads to problems as well and can lead to a major explosion. This book has really led me to reflect and helped me realize the damage stuffing can do. All this to say I pray you can find a way to convince not just those who feel unglued and then express these emotions, but the ones who suffer and stuff in silence, to pick this book up!!!” – Jill B.
“As a fifty-something, with no children, I still am overwhelmed with how Lysa relates to all women and family situations, relationships and personal reactions. I saw myself in so many pages of this book. It speaks to all women, on many levels, and is perfect for women of any age and position in life. I believe I can look at the hope of ‘imperfect progress’ and become the person He made me to be.” – Laura S.
“Having to sit down and figure out exactly what triggers my reactions, and in what form they are expressed was not fun, but very enlightening. I feel like now that I have identified my reaction categories, I can start working on becoming a woman who is more in control, more connected to myself.” – Shannon B.
