Unglued Review

I am a wife, mother, leader, loyee, and many other things on any given day. I can easily become unglued over a small thing or a mountain on any given day. Lysa Terkeurst in her new series, Unglued, gives practical ways to make imperfect progress in hopes of correcting unglued situations and behaviors. I have been leading the Unglued DVD series at my MOMSnext group and have learned so much from her teaching. That is why I was excited to get my hands on the devotional book she wrote.
If you are like me and have read Jesus Calling several times, this is a great devotion book to pick up. There are 60 days of devotions included and I would recommend reading at least twice!
Each day starts with a verse:

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:2
Then a thought for the day:

Choosing a gentle reply doesn't mean you're weak; it actually means you possess a rare and godly strength.
After the days devotion, she ends with a short prayer:

Dear Lord, I accept the challenge to hold my tongue in order to honor, give grace, and have compassion for others. Please give me strength to do this today. Thanks so much. In Jesus' name, Amen
The example above is from Day 47. What a great way to start any day! Each day is a reminder that I can make a choice in how I treat and respond to others. And it will help break the cycle of being led by emotions rather than the Holy Spirit!
*I received this book in exchange for my review. The opinions are mine.*
