UNINVITED BY LYSA TERKEURST

Image Credit: goodreads.com
Rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you follow my reading journey, you might know that I am a follower of the Proverbs 31 Ministry, led by Lysa TerKeurst. So, when Auidble.com offered Uninvited: Living Loved When you Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely as part of its BOGO promo a couple of weeks ago, I couldn't resist taking advantage.

As I suspected, this was another book filled with wisdom by Ms. TerKeurst. The feelings she shares along with the personal narratives that will have you crying from empathy and laughter (often one right after the next) really resonated with me. While the Proverbs 31 Ministry is geared toward women, the aspects of shame, vulnerability, anxiety, and rejection are universal without respect to gender.

In her very practical, relatable way the author seems to know just how I am feeling and offers a spiritual perspective on how to cope and overcome those negative feelings. I do believe writing is TerKeurst's God-given talent, and what a blessing it is to be able to use your talent in a way to not only make a living but help others in the process.

Recommendation: I think I would like a traditional copy of this book. The audio recitation was a little fast for me. The author's words and themes deserve deeper thought a reflection than what I could gather from an audiobook.
