    Making wise choices in the midst of raw emotions - such an excellent subtitle - such a struggle for so many of us. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has struggled to make wise choices in the hectic moments of life, and not the only one who has come unglued at times, lashing out verbally at those around us. We can pull some major guilt trips on our families, putting on our martyr-hat and going on and on (loudly) about how we have to do all the work, no one appreciates us, and just what is everyone's problem anyway? Cupboard doors slam, feet stomp, husbands disappear to the garage, kids scatter and rush to finish their chores as fast as possible.

    Lysa TerKeurst has opened up and revealed her own struggles with controlling her emotions - actually her reactions to raw emotions - in her book Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions. She talks about the two wrong ways to handle those emotions - stuffing and exploding - and breaks it down into four different categories:

    The Exploder Who Shames Herself

    The Exploder Who Blames Others

    The Stuffer Who Builds Barriers

    The Stuffer Who Collects Retaliation Rocks

    Lysa then tackles each category and shows us what each type of "unglued" looks like through examples from her own life. She shows how we can actually fall into different categories with different people, and most importantly, how we can overcome that tendency and handle conflicts in a godly way. My favorite chapters actually covered ways that we can equip ourselves to cope with the raw emotions by making sure we have room to breathe and our souls are filled with God's Word.

    Lysa's book is very well-written and it was a very timely and helpful book for me. I haven't been giving myself room to breathe or spending enough time on my own spiritual growth, and it was showing. Hectic moments of life (which are frequent in a family our size) were just bringing out more and more unglued reactions from me. We all try to hide our tendency to come unglued from others, especially other Christians. I'm very thankful that Lysa tackled the subject so transparently, to help us overcome the tendency to stuff our frustrations down until we just can't hold any more and explode on our families and friends.

    Lysa also has a DVD Bible study (also published by Zondervan) that accompanies this book, and the video portion of the study is filmed in Florence, Italy. I'd love to study this with the women in my church. Because while the book is very practical, it doesn't delve into Scripture as much as I'd like to, or as much as I need to overcome this battle. So while I recommend the book, I know from using some of Lysa's other DVD Bible studies, that I'll benefit even more from the study.

    If you're struggling with your raw emotions, coming unglued with those you care about most ... please read Lysa's book, Unglued, or join a Bible study using her Unglued Study guide.

    Unglued has been a very convicting read for me. I struggle with losing my temper a lot. She does a great job of really sharing her struggles and how she worked and continued to work to overcome them. She helps with practical tips and advice. I recommend this read for any Mom, especially those who struggle with anger issues.

    From the first time I read the description about the book Unglued by Lysa Terkeurst, I wanted to read it. As a woman who has many "unglued" moments, I was interested to learn more about how I could avoid reacting to my feelings or when others got under my skin and learn more about how I could respond when my feelings started to rear their ugly head or when I felt like someone was walking on my feelings. I was not disappointed. I am so glad that I got the opportunity to read this book because it opened my eyes to areas where I need to improve, but more than that, it gave me practical ways I could actually make progress.

    From the words I read in chapter 1, "Feeling unglued is really all I've ever known. And I'm starting to wonder if maybe it's all I ever be." (pg 14), I was hooked. I know that feeling. I could relate to that feeling. What followed was a call to "imperfect progress", to give myself hope that I could make progress, and that imperfect progress is still progress. Throughout the book, Lysa shares her own experiences and how the principles she gives in this book have helped her to make imperfect progress.

    What I love about this book is how transparent Lysa is with us. She doesn't try to make herself seem like this perfect woman who has it all together. She's real and authentic, and she candidly writes about how badly she sometimes has responded when someone "bumped up against her happy." Because of this, I was more open to reading what principles she put in place to help her to respond better to those who got under her skin or in situations where her feelings were starting to control her actions. She reminds us that even though we cannot control everything that happens in our days, we can control how we think about them and how we act in response to them. This is so important.

    She not only gives principles for how to more appropriately respond to those who get under our skin or when our emotions get in the way, but she warns against labeling ourselves. How often I have put a label on myself (or let others put a label on me), rather than choosing something different?

    Overall, I highly recommend this book to any woman who feels like her emotions are in control of her actions. I feel like I walked away with sensible, practical ways that I could start to respond in a way that would help me to promote peace, while at the same time not invalidating my own thoughts and feelings. I found that her examples were easy to relate to and that they added validity to her premises. This is an excellent read and a good resource for learning to make "imperfect progress."
