My thoughts….

I love how by the end of this book, I felt like maybe Lysa and I would be friends.  I have not read the book Unglued, so I wasn’t sure if that would alter my opinion, but I found the opposite to be true.  I found that the devotional was easy to read and it did not matter that I had not read the companion book.

I had heard of Lysa, but I was not very familiar with her work.  I am hooked after reading this!  I can’t wait to read more from her.  I also highly encourage you to hear her speak, she is phenomenal.  She’s so open and honest about her struggles, it’s easy to relate to her.

I found one of the best parts of the book is that it somewhat shatters this image of the perfect life that I would have assumed Lysa lives.  I realize that we all have struggles, but some people’s lives seem a bit charmed…not to say that they don’t have struggles, however they are not necessarily public struggles.  Lysa comes across as being authentic, without dramatizing or exaggerating  as a fellow woman who has her moments of becoming “unglued.”

I also how easy they are to read.  They are also short enough that if you only have a few minutes, you can still fit them in.  They are well written, begin with a thought for the day and end with a prayer.

I thought that this was a solid devotional and I can’t wait to read more from Lysa!
