About Unglued

Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or react somewhere in between.

What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how.

Filled with personal examples and Biblical teaching,
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.


Lysa TerKeurst is a New York Times bestselling author, National Speaker, and President of Proverbs 31 Ministries. You can read her daily blog at or hear her encouragement through the Proverbs 31 Ministries’ radio program played on over 1200 outlets. She loves that the first four letters of Messiah spell a “mess.” All of the messages Lysa speaks and writes about come from her awareness of what a mess she can be. Most days you can find her writing from her sticky farm table in North Carolina where she lives with her husband Art, her five priority blessings named Jackson, Mark, Hope, Ashley, and Brooke, 3 dogs and a mouse that refuses to leave her kitchen.


“Lysa approaches the topic of raw emotions in an honest way that will make every woman sigh with relief that they’re not alone. Her teaching on making imperfect progress is insightful and realistic. As the president of the American Association of Christian Counselors I love that Lysa offers practical steps and realistic answers to help women get unstuck from the unhealthy cycles of coming unglued. Whether you are a stuffer or exploder or a combination of both this is a book I highly recommend.”
