Uninvited by Lysa Terkeurst

 Have you ever felt the gnawing sense that you didn't belong somewhere? Like somehow you weren't invited or apart of something? Have you ever felt left out, but knew their was a purpose in mind for you? If you're anything life me and Lysa, every woman has felt this way. Thank goodness, someone had the courage to say it out loud what we've all been thinking and feeling for so long! In her latest book Uninvited, Lysa has the courage to take readers into a place where I think a lot of authors aren't willing to go for fear of taking a risk of showing how to be vulnerable. She shares her heart without being preaching and is down right authentic. She is painful honest about her own life experiences, which is great to read as a reader. She doesn't make it up and while it can be hard to read, it also lets the reader know, she has some garbage too. 

I would have loved to come face to face with her regarding a few topics because I am not sure that we stand on the same page, and I'm not sure that we don't, but I would love to hash out some stuff with her because writing and talking have very different perspectives. Overall, her perspectives on loneliness, rejection and forgiveness are something that as a culture, especially with women, we don't talk about. 

I highlighted all over this book and it is one I highly recommend taking in pieces as it has good wisdom with solid biblical foundation. Starting September 6 there is going to be an online Bible study and you should be apart of it! I encourage you to get on Proverbs 31 to check on the Uninvited Bible Study. 

Thank you to the author and publisher for providing me a complimentary copy for review purposes. I was not compensated for a positive review. I give this book 5/5 stars.
