Book review: Unglued Devotional

I REALLY love Lysa TerKeurst's writing. She's truly gifted with her words.  So when I saw that her new devotional, Unglued Devotional, was available on Booksneeze for review, I snapped it up. Here's a bit about this book, from the publisher's website:

This companion devotional to the bestselling book Unglued 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.
I had not read Unglued, the book that goes along with this devotional, when I started reading the devotional.  I'm curious to go back and do so now though, since I enjoyed this devotional so much.  Lysa TerKeurst is the type of writer who doesn't hold back from sharing her own struggles and failures, as well as her successes. I think that's what makes her writing so compelling. She's honest about not having it all figured out, and encourages people to just keep trying. All the while, reminding us that God loves us and forgives us and is there to help us get up and go forward. 

Each of the 60 entries in this devotional is very short, and has a Bible verse and thought for the day to go along with it.  Even though the entries are short, they're thought-provoking and motivating.  Perfect for starting a busy day out right. The book also has a handy appendix with some information on determining your reaction type, so you can improve how you are in relationships with others. 

If you're looking for a new devotional book, definitely take a look at this one.  I really enjoyed and appreciated it and I think you will too.
