I Came Unglued at Church #Facepalm & a NEW Unglued Giveaway!

 

 Some might remember, last August I flew to North Carolina to be a part of Lysa Terkeurst’s live Webcast for her newly released book Unglued.   (I’m at around minute 29) Well since then, the book Unglued has hit the New York Times Best Seller list and has stayed there for weeks on end!!!  Hooray!  And now Lysa has a new devotional coming out titled Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress.

Renee Swope, Me, Lysa Terkeurst, Kelly Stamps

 Not long ago – I came unglued at church.  #Facepalm  Oh yes, yes I did.  And it was not pretty.  You see my kids are in a Sunday evening program where they earn stickers for memory verses and service projects. And one evening we messed up and turned in a service project that did not “qualify”.  Being the rule followers that we are lol!, we apologized and went home and did another service project.  Then we went back and turned the new one in.  And again – it did not “qualify”…and that’s when it all went down hill…I became unglued.

Oh friends, if only I could turn back time and keep my mouth shut.  I went from talking to one leader to being passed off to the leader of the leaders – a dear friend of 10 years.  And forget that she and I were friends…I was on a mission to get my kid his sticker!!!  There we stood in a hallway with about 15 other people around, having a heated discussion about the definition of “service”.  

 Oh seriously – really? – at church? – two sisters in Christ who honestly love each other — who have stood shoulder to shoulder “serving”.  We’ve made 30 meals in one day for the meal ministry, just me and her and one other friend.  We’ve “served” for over 5 years together in the nursery.  I sat and watched her baby while she threw up with morning sickness in her shower, she showed up at my door with a meal my first week home with my newborn baby, we’ve studied the Bible together,  and have watched our children play and grow up together…and I’m haggling over a sticker in the hallway of our church!  #facepalm

Well, I got my sticker…but I acted like a fool!

The following Sunday, I walked into the worship service and sat down.  The Pastor announced we would be taking communion that morning.  We stood to sing and this friend came to the end of the pew and motioned for me to come with her to the hallway.  Ummmmm can you say awkward?

She went right to the point and shared how she couldn’t take communion without coming to me and making things right.  Then she proceeded to apologize {dagger to the heart}.  Not only did I act like a fool but now here she was making things right – while I had not even considered apologizing.  I assumed that since we knew each other so well, our heated discussion was not personal…but who was I kidding? I owed her an apology- goodness, I came unglued on her over a silly sticker!  My heart melted – I apologized too.  We hugged.

And then we took communion…  

And as I looked down at the cup of red drink and the bread in my hand - shame washed over me - shame for my failures. And then as I took and ate it in remembrance of Christ blood shed for me on the cross –  I found grace. Grace through my friend’s forgiveness and grace through Christ’s blood that covers it all.  I am so thankful for God’s grace that stands in the gaps of friendships that have been hurt through unglued emotions.  

Have your unglued emotions hurt family relationships or meaningful friendships?  You are not alone…  Go to the cross – go to your friend and make it right.

“Do not comform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”~Romans 12:2

We won’t develop new responses until we develop new thoughts.~Lysa Terkeurst

I love Lysa’s new Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress.  It is a follow-up devotional to her best-selling book Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions. It is such a comforting, encouraging, inspiring and convicting devotional.  Lysa is honest and wise as she walks her reader through the imperfect progress we all need to make with our emotions.

I’m excited to get to give a copy, along with a few other fun things, away today

    • Shelia Beine says:

      Thank you so much for being honest. We are so many times not honest with yourselves, God, and the people we hurt. I have always wanted to read Unglued. I have heard some ladies from my church read it and really have enjoyed it. It’s time to me to get alone with God and grow. I have four kids – littlest one is 2 1/2 — no alone time. :) Thank you for your blog. In Him…

    • I can’t figure out how to leave a comment! Lol. Only a reply…. I hate it when I come unglued. Wish there was an off switch. I know it takes discipline and of course the help of our God in heaven.

  17. Krystal Anderson says:

    I am entering for the giveaway, but I also want to share something with you. I have been following you for a few years now and find comfort in almost every post you write. It’s amazing how we can all be so different, yet still the same. We women are from various backgrounds, but our hearts for God and the commonality in our failures let us know that we are not alone. Thank you, thank you, thank you….for sharing your stories, being so candid about your thoughts and emotions, and encouraging us Christian women who are struggling everyday to grow into the kind of people He wants us to be! :)

    • Barbara Prince says:

      Krystal, you are so right. I have learned to appreciate my sisters-in-Christ who share their hearts so openly. What an encouragement to the rest of us and it teaches us to keep going!

  18. I love reading your blog. Thank you.

  19. Crystal Scott says:

    Thank you for telling us your “unglued” story. I have been in the same place as you and came unglued at Church. And I know it is not easy to admit we were wrong. I have to do it all the time. Why do we do these things? Because we are human, but that isn’t an excuse. I appreciate all you do for Christ. You are truly a blessing. Thank you

    tweeted, shared on facebook and pinned it too

  20. I would love to win this giveaway! :)

  21. I just started following your blogs and I can’t tell you how much they have encouraged and helped me. I get on everyday and watch your videos and read posts left from other believers. Thanks bunches!

  22. Always live reading your insight! You are a blessing!

  23. Jeanette M C says:

    Oh my, I think I may need this book. I have a nasty little habit of coming unglued. Even if I don’t win, I think I’ll buy it. Love your service to our Lord.

  24. Krystal Anderson says:

    I also shared on Facebook!

  25. I have recently come Unglued at a situation in my family. I did not handle it well and felt terrible. I know this book will be a blessing to whoever wins. I love Lysa’s books. I am so glad you are back from your break from blogging.

    P.S. I shared on FB and Twitter your post. Good Luck to all who enter.

  26. I love Lysa’s other books, and I’d really love to read this one. I come unglued WAY too often!

  27. Definitely come “unglued” a time or two myself. Would love some help in that area!

  28. I tweeted!

  29. I pinned the giveaway! Trying to get FB to work.

  30. I am new to all this and enjoy stopping in and hearing the word, reading along with others. It is amazing to participate with so many people. I will be gratefully surprised to get this giveaway then share with someone else. Good luck to all.

  31. I shared on FB too!

  32. Oh wow, I can think of so many times I have come “unglued” – even if I didn’t say it out loud, I did it in my head, or worse, I vented to someone else instead of confronting and dealing with it. Thanks for sharing your story and being real with us!

  33. Marty Larson says:

    Thank you for your transparency. Bless you for the lessons you so gracefully impart.

  34. Aindrea Griffin says:

    I’m in! :)

  35. I shared it on my Facebook page.

  36. GREAT story!!! GREAT giveaway! I’ve never been in a Starbucks!!!

  37. I read this book last year, and it came at a time when I REALLY needed it. Such good perspective and guidance to Christ through human shepherding of emotions that are sometimes hard to navigate. In my case, someone had become “unglued” at me, and I needed to take grace toward her, and Lisa’s book helped me to process the situation. I was especially helped by the phrase. “We cannot control how someone treats us or chooses to act, but we can choose to control how we respond.” Anyway, I’d love another copy and the study and all those freebies! Yes please! Thank you Courtney for sharing this personal story. I was teaching at a Christian school before I had my babies, and I sometimes couln’t how “unglued” some Christian parents could become over a little misunderstand with THEIR CHILD! I learned a lot from it. It’s very normal to have that mama bear instinct when our children are involved…that’s why we need the Lord’s ballanced and proper humanity through His making His home in our heart through our failures when we take His blood. Praise Him!

  38. Shared it on my Facebook page . Hope I win!

  43. And pinned it.

  44. We are studying Unglued in our weekly ladies study. This is the BEST Bible study I’ve ever been a part of. Probably because it’s just like reading all about me and my life. Daily.

  64. What a wonderful post; thank you so much for sharing! We are going through the DVD series for Unglued on Wednesday nights at our church. It’s been such a blessing! Thank you for sharing your unglued moment. I was just telling a friend at church tonight after watching Lysa’s DVD that we grow and learn in moments when we are most transparent. There are so many times I have looked at women I admire and then look down on myself thinking I’ll never measure up. However, when you see the “real” them, you realize they have the same struggles you do and are being renewed each day as well.

  65. Oh, how I need this! I came unglued at church myself and it wasn’t pretty!

  66. Rachel Conley says:

I have a friend that is going through something almost like what you did and I would love to win this and then I would give it to her. (And no, the issue is not with me, but with a shared friend…I’m somewhat in the middle even though I am not taking sides, I love them both).

  70. Oh, I come unglued more than I would like to admit. I’ve been wanting to read this book, it seems to be written just for me:/

I come UNGLUED on a daily, no HOURLY bases it seems. I am trying do hard to rein it in, but I have know idea how to. I am trying to homeschool my little ones, and to top it all off I am disabled (Brain Bleeds) as well. (Noise really tends to bother me, and can set me off). Can’t wait to read this book! I, also, just received Desperate by Sarah Mae. Can’t wait to start reading that one as well.

  105. Thank you for your honesty and for pointing our hearts to Christ.

  107. Both, the unglued book and devotional sound like something I need to read, especially in my situation! I’m going through a not-so-pretty divorce and I’ve found myself with bitter thoughts and harsh words lately. If I don’t win, this will definitely be something I will have to save up to buy!

    I would love to win : )

  117. Jennifer Crowell says:

    Thank you for sharing your church story about coming unglued. It is uplifting to know I’m not just crazy and other women do this as well. We are doing this study in church and it has been great so far. I am now kicking myself for not buying the devotional when it was on sale, because I’d really like to have it to go with the book I got. But now you have given me a chance to win it, so thank you for that chance. Plus I could pass the book itself onto a friend who would enjoy it as much as I am.

  118. I have several friends reading this now. I would love to win.

  119. I am sharing on FB

  120. I have also shared on facebook! (not sure if we are supposed to leave separate comments for each share or just one so I hope this is ok)

  121. Nicole Gaylord says:

    Love your honestly!!! I think I could take a few lessons from her book also:) Praising Him and the way he transforms us because I know that I’m too weak to ever do it on my own. To Him belongs the glory!!

    Amazing giveaway! Great post! Thank you for serving the women reading your blog as well as their families!

  125. Karina Browning says:

    I have been struggling with changing my “unglued” moments to soul controlled moments – hoping that soon they will be changed to God controlled moments – where I can allow the spirit of God to reign in me! My ladies bible study at church just finished the Unglued book by Lysa. I was able to sit in on a few. Lots of encouragement and sound advice. Thanks for this post and for the chance to win the giveaway!!

  126. *crying* I totally came unglued at my hubby tonight. I tell myself we all have those moments, and maybe we do, but that excuse has gone on too long at our house. Maybe I need this book! :)

  127. I had an unglued moment in church as well :) It ended with my crying in the nursing room! It was truly pitiful.

  128. Amber Mesherger says:

    I am working on watching my temper and thinking before I speak. This would be wonderful to motivate me. Thank you for your inspirational blog. I love reading it!

  129. Wow – I am running around so much that Krazy Glue couldn’t keep me together! Good for you for sharing this!

  130. Aww, thanks for being so real with us.

  131. As a mom of 3 kids (12,9, and 4), it’s very easy to come “unglued” in my house. Out in public is another story for me, if I’m not in control, I at least try to make it look like I am…at least until we get home. I think the most common place for me to come “unglued” is at the grocery store with all 3 kids. They all start asking for this that and the other thing. I’m usually trying to get done and get out…Anyway, I read a few of Lysa’s devotionals sent via email from Proverbs31.org and really enjoyed them. Would love to win, but will probably buy the book if I don’t.

  132. Looks like you are going to have a ton of names to choose from. I would love this new book. Was able to read and do a study with one of her other ones. Loved it!

  133. Kristy Bartlett says:

    I think we all have those moments, I just pray that they get fewer and fewer…

  134. I would LOVE to win this book!!! :)

  135. I am looking forward to Lisa’s new book. Loved “Made to Crave”!

  136. Kristin Dahman says:

    I SO need this! I just delivered my son, Isaac, at almost 24 weeks along in my pregnancy and shortly after he died in my arms. I have four children and a husband at home that I am trying not to become”unglued”with since. This is an area in my life that God is really calling me to work on in my life and I would love the opportunity to do so with “Unglued” Thank you for the opportunity. God bless.

    • Barbara Prince says:

      My heart hurts for you Kristin. God knows and He understands your pain right now. It’s hard when you don’t have time to grieve. Father, wrap your loving arms around Kristin. Please give her Your perfect peace. Let your Holy Spirit comfort her. In Jesus Name, I pray.

    • Amber Foshay says:

      I pray for you to be embraced right now and for HIS strength to get you through each day. So sorry for your heartbreak!

  137. I would love to win :) Sounds like a great book!

    I Would love to win a copy of this book, I have been wanting to read it for a while now.

  166. Boy do I need this book. I become unglued a lot, and unfortunately the people I become unglued at is usually my family. I’ve studied anger books and prayed, and it has gotten better, but I’d like to finally be able to control my emotions all the time, rather than my emotions controlling me. I’d love to have this book.

  174. Thank you for keeping it real and giving a glimpse of the real you. Transparency and a lesson learned, a good thing. Thank you!

  175. Hi Courtney, praise be to the Lord for grace :) Thank you for sharing that. Have a blessed day. Tara (The Proverbs 31 Sanctuary)

  176. Michelle b says:

    Thank you! Would love to own this one. Guilty as charged!

  177. Unglued is on my reading list for 2013. As I am trying to be more aware of my actions as a mother and wife I am finding that I come “unglued” at those around me, especially at my kids for things I don’t like in myself that they are learning from me. Would love to win this prize pack and love reading your blog. Thank you!

  178. I’ve been wanting to read this book, and the accompanying devotional sounds fantastic! Thanks for the fun giveaway.

  179. Thank you for sharing your story. It’s amazing how important things seem in the heat of the moment. I’m still learning the importance of pausing, so I may think rationally. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  180. Thanks for sharing your story! I struggle with becoming unglued too and I always feel so bad afterwards until I apologize. Thank goodness for God’s amazing grace!

  181. I so love your honesty. Yes, I have been in the same (similar) boat and the pain from hurting your loved ones is difficult to bear. So thankful for grace and friends that love us despite ourselves!

  182. Tara Drummond says:

    Would love to have these! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  183. Thank you for sharing. I have a “hot button” and when pushed I can come unglued quickly. Although my kids are grown I get angry and will come unglued if anyone says anything against my kids, primarily my daughter (a wonderful Christian wife and mother.) I’ve said and acted pretty harshly with my husband over this. It doesn’t show Christ like love to anyone and know the conviction you were talking about. Thank you for being so open.
    Love On Christ,
    Beverly

  184. PS I shared your giveaway on Pinterest, twitter and Facebook.

  185. Natausha Lusk says:

    Here, here Sister! Thank you for sharing your story of grace. We all have “those” momma bear moments (especially when it comes to our little cubs!). It’s such a blessing when we get to see God’s beauty in our lives even in those moments of our own ugliness.

    What a great giveaway you and Lysa have put together! <3

    I just read a post yesterday from Jill Briscoe about being vulnerable and honest in relationships. Your blog is a good example of that! Thanks for sharing your “real-ness” with us!

  189. Tara Drummond says:

    I also pinned…can you tell I am excited about this??!!

  190. I need Lysa’s devotional!

  191. Thank you for your timely message

  192. Linda in Chester, VA says:

    Would absolutely love to be entered into the drawing! I’ve started forwarding your blogs to my new daughter-in-law and think she’s getting hooked. Praises!

  193. Thank you for sharing stories like that and being so open and honest!

  194. I’m lying here awake at 3:30 a.m. and I’m reflecting over my day I think about how I came unglued today and also how I slipped and fell into the way of the world. What does God give me but a nudge to read your post and bring me scripture that I need to hear and a story of healing- exactly what my church is focusing on. Thank you for your words!

  195. Your transparency is refreshing & many of us are encouraged by you. Lovely to have you back blogging.

  196. Julia Delaney says:

    I have so been wanting to read Unglued. Would love to win this give away. Thank you for sharing this. I love your blog. Your so inspiring!

  197. It was good to hear your story especially the restoration. May the Lord teach me to do seek restoration with family, friends and especially strangers that I come unglued with at times :( And may He teach me to show the Love of Christ when it is directed towards me. This book sounds like a good read & challenge!

  198. I have scone unglued a lot more than usual lately. Everyone in my house has been sick and the hardship of staying off work has fallen on me. My hubby and two kids have felt the wrath due to my stress. I just started following your blog (doing the Valentine’s challenge) and already you’ve been a blessing! Thanks for taking your time to so this for your followers.

  199. My friends and I just started reading Unglued together. Thank you for sharing your story.

  200. I would love a copy of this book sounds like a good read. The devotional will be a great addition to it as well. i have liked and shared it on facebook as well.

  201. susie edworthy says:

    I just heard about this book. I was having a conversation with a friend yesterday about this very subject and how I wish I had had more tools for dealing with this when my kids were younger (all of them are grown now). However, I still think it is a worthwhile subject for me even now. I did share this on facebook and also sent this link to my friend. Thanks for your honesty and transparency.

  202. Thanks for sharing your story! I’d love to win this set. Thanks for the chance.

  203. Wow, sounds like I need to win this giveaway.

  204. I am currently doing this book with our bible study at church, and it has been life changing for all of us so far. Thanks for doing this giveaway! I hope I win so I can share this with someone else who would be blessed as well. :)

  205. Confession, becoming unglued is my biggest fault, heck my nickname in my family was dramaqueen and crybaby. I’ve learned to take better control as an adult and morther but it is a daily struggle for me. I’m a very emotional person and fall apart easily. I’d really like to win this. Good luck to everyone.

  206. This sounds great!

  207. Shared on facebook

  208. Retweeted on twitter.

  209. Great thoughts and I love the honesty. I’m reading The Cure and it talks about the different masks we put on. So often, we put on a great face, yet inside we are screaming a different story. Makes me think. I need to read Unglued!!

  210. This sounds like something I need.

  211. What it says about me that I am waiting for an apology from someone who came unglued at my daughter this week and went on from there. Thank you for encouraging me to seek God in this trouble.

  212. kathy smith says:

    I so need this study =/. Very convicting.

  213. Love Lysa Terkeurst. Our ladies bible study did Made to Crave not too long ago, and I would love to include this as my next personal bible study. I know I much too easily become unglued so I am sure this would be very beneficial to me.

  214. Oh I really need to read this book!

  215. I so need this book. I work at a christian school and see people become “unglued” all the time. As much as I hateto admit it, I myself fall into this category. Thanks for your post today!

  216. Becky Gensel says:

    Sounds like a great book – I love Lysa’s Made to Crave book – fighting that battle myself right now. :) hope this give away goes well!

  217. Becky Gensel says:

    FYI – shared on Facebook too! (Before I ever commented actually. )

  218. I’ve been wanting/ needing to read Unglued since it was first released. Would love to win. Love your blog and love to see how God has blessed your ministry. I started reading back when you still had the lafy taking a bubble bath clip art, my how WLW has changed. :-)

  219. I am always blessed by your honest sharing. Thanks for being real and inviting all of us into your life.

  220. Deanna Moss says:

    Sometimes it is so hard to be transparent…. Most of my Christian Life i have lived”unglued”. I was never discipled, and we all know how important that is, so i would spend the next 15+ years floundering around trying to figure out what thus Christian walk was all about. I can still use all thehelp i can get.

  221. Thanks for the chance to win! I pinned the giveaway, too.

  222. I just finished leading a bible study of the book Unglued at it was fabulous! Can’t wait to read the devotional:)

  223. Maria Hall says:

    Loved this blog today! Forgiveness, love, grace & mercy! So glad you’re back!

  224. Courtney, I just love your heart! As I read your Church story all I could think was “oh, how I’ve been there”! You have a good friend & I love that she would come to you before communion & make it right. Then to experience God’s mercy & grace and the reminder we are indeed dependent on Him at all times and we’ll “never have it all together”! Hard sometimes but beautiful! Thanks for the opportunity to win this package!
    In Christ, Amy

  225. Maria Hall says:

    Pinned & facebook’d!

  226. Thank you for sharing this! I came unglued during bible study a few weeks back. Those ladies showed me such grace. I did apologize the next week. I’m glad I’m not the only one with those kinds of moments. :)

  227. I am on such a journey seeking out and finding God in my life and making Christ center. This book looks like a good supplement to the bible study I am doing with my pastor!

  228. Heard Lysa speak in September – a godly woman who is a hoot. I am typically a stuffer, but I have had my moments …

  229. Thank you for sharing your heart in this post. I’ve become unglued so many times and knowing that others who have walked a longer walk with Christ have also become unglued is just such a blessing to my heart – to know that I’m not alone. Praising God for His grace and love – and for sisters like you who let us know we are not alone in our struggles! God bless!!

  230. Thank you for the great giveaway opportunity!

  231. Oh how I appreciate your willingness to be humble and share. I can’t wait to read this book

  232. Loves this book and am really excited about the devotional!

    I love following you in Facebook. You having given such good advice for stubborn wives like myself. I have told many of my friends about u. You are such a blessing. Thank you for your transparency. God Bless

  235. Janice Davis says:

    I would love to read these books. I have been trying to learn how to not become unglued and/or how to handle it and make it right when I do. Perfect timing for books like this. Couldn’t get the share to work on either Facebook or Pinterest :(

  236. thanks for being a real example of how God works in our hearts, as sisters. When one falls down, the other reaches out a hand to help us up…even when we don’t know we’ve fallen. Blessings on you and yours, dear sister.
    I would love to be entered in the giveway` we all need help with our unglued emotions~thanks!

  237. Jenny Rutan says:

    Praise God for his Grace and Mercy. Were only human and we all come unglued at one time or another, but God in His wonderful way brings us back. God bless you Courtney!
    Love and Prayers,
    Jenny

  238. This post was perfect timing for me!! God knew I needed to see this and I am so happy I did!! I am excited you are doing a give away- but even if I do not win I will be purchasing this book to read! I just love knowing I am not the only one, sometimes it may feel I am the alone in those feelings. Makes me feel better knowing its not just me!! Thank you for sharing!!

  239. Thanks for being real. As believers in Christ, we all fail, but have the blood of Christ to cover our sins, failures and mistakes. When we come unglued! We don’t have to live in guilt.’

  240. Oh I forgot to mention I shared this on a few sites to help out some fellow women who may need this as much as I had!!

    Again,
    Thank You!!

  241. Loved this message. I have definitely been there and done that

  242. Marlena E says:

    Love your blog and consistent encouragement! I would LOVE to win the Unglued package. Thanks for all you do!

  243. Timpy Ellis says:

    I wold love to have this devotional. There are so many times I feel like I’m living my life through emotion and coming “unglued”!

  244. I too have done things I am not proud of. I learned from my past what I need to keep to myself and so forth. Life is better with calm attitudes than without.

  245. When I first became a Christian I thought women in the church were perfect Christians, wives, and mothers. It didn’t take long to realize my faulty thinking. Appearances are deceiving. After 16 years as a child of God, I have come unglued many times myself. I am not proud of it but thankful for a God who forgives and gives us nuggets of help from His Word to overcome these times. I am always thankful for women who share the truth about living the Christian life. May we all seek to grow closer to God in 2013!

  252. Angela Gibson says:

    I would love to win! This sounds like something I need!!!

  253. I love your blog!!! It is an encouraging faith filled time for me in the morning when I get to read.

  254. Wow, this may seem a wierd reply for a giveway but what came up for me as I read your post was how this situation could have a lesson for you. What if your friend was showing up to help, and in turn model for your son, what it is like when we have not met the standard set? Yes, it is about service, but if there were “rules” to follow and you were a “rules” follower than why would it upset you that she is upholding the rules? This could be a great learning experience to release you from the attachment that you always following the rules and make an “A.” You are loved even when you haven’t met a standard. We are always loved, it comes in many forms. Just my thoughts…I honor your honest sharing.

  255. Charlotte says:

    Sadly, I think this has happened in one way or another to all of us. Thank God for true Christian friends that help us in our walk with Jesus. You do inspire me Courtney. Thank you.

  256. Thank you for this encouraging post and your witness for Christ.

  257. I’ve had my own unglued moments lately…with the hubby. *gulp* would love a little help here.

  258. Thank you so much for this post…have missed them so! I appreciate your honesty and could definitely identify with the UNGLUED moment!

  259. Courtney, thank you foe sharing your heart and always being so honest and genuine!!

  266. What a wonderful giveaway. :)

  267. Life offers many opportunities to come “unglued!” I think as we struggle with our fleshly nature it will be this way. I appreciate the giveaway to provide a tool to help combat the flesh and live more like Christ!! :)

  275. I would love this giveaway. It sounds wonderful.. Thanks for the opportunity.

  276. Courtney, your honesty is refreshing. I appreciate knowing that not only I, but others, also, have these moments., but that there is a God who sent His Son to take that all away… as you experienced. Thanks for an opportunity at what sounds like a very useful giveaway.

  277. I can’t wait to read this book. Thanks for the opportunity to win it. :)

    Mala

  299. I haven’t bought this book yet, but it is def on my list. It must be great for marriage as well, as often spouses come from complete different backgrounds, and issues are handled much differently.

  300. I just came unglued last night at my husband because of his response to our kid’s toys 3 hours after we discussed him dealing w/PTSD. :(

  301. Sarah Green says:

  306. Jessica Bowers says:

    I can totally relate!

  307. Julie Hooker says:

    I too have come “unglued” at church, VBS to be specifically. Thank The Lord for His forgiveness, which shows us how to forgive others. Even when the other person is at fault and in the wrong, we must forget our pride and make things right.

    Hope to win this. It would be very helpful.

  308. Kim Cornelison says:

    THis is a great book, I have been wanting and praying to start a bible study with this book. Courtney your website is amazing and very encouraging. So thakful for your love for the Lord.

  309. Would love to read this book! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  310. Kim Domras says:

    Thank you for being so transparent about your unglued moment! I believe we all can relate to your story because we can all come up with an unglued story and probably several of them. My recent unglued moment was after my car accident. After several days of not sleeping well due to the discomfort in my neck and back coupled with a nursing infant and several solicitors coming to the door in one day and when finally the house was quiet and both girls sleeping at the same time for the first time ever and I finally lay my head down for nap when I heard ANOTHER Knock at the door. I yelled from the couch and said “What is it? (In a loud and rude tone). I opened the door and saw our mailman and his daughter standing there with our Girl Scout order. I immediately felt embarrassed and such shame. Of course I apologized humbly and profusely and explained the background information in hopes they may understand my unglued moment. Of course, they forgave me, but every time I see our mailman I think of this incident, and I have to remind myself that I have been forgiven of that and many more unglued moments. I pray for more self control in the moments I feel like I am just going to lose it. I haven’t read the book Unglued, but would love to so I can apply what I learn in the hopes that I will be a better wife, mother, daughter, friend, neighbor, and witness for Christ. Thank you for the Giveaway opportunity!

  311. Kelli Back says:

  313. Lysa is an inspiring author! I would love to read her new book! Thank you for the giveaway opportunity. I usually come unglued with my strong willed child. The Holy Spirit is working on that!

  314. Unglued, Boy have I ever!!! I definitely need this read__

  315. I pinned this too! Under “I Love This Blog”

  316. Am on a personal journey right now. This book would be a great help. Best of luck to all

  317. Courtney,
    Thank you for your wonderful blog. You always say the right thing at the right time. I think we have all come “unglued” over simple things that mean a lot to us at the time. Thanks for sharing! God bless you and your service!!

  318. I think we’ve all been there :( Some of us more than once. I’d love to be entered in your giveaway! :)

  319. Would love to read this!

  320. Michelle C says:

    I could use this giveaway since I find that I come ‘Unglued” all too often recently. Life has been a little crazy and I am working on getting my eyes and heart focused back on God and living for Him not others.

  321. I appreciate your emails. I am enjoying sharing positive feedback from my husband!

  322. I would love to win a copy of the new 60 day study. I am currently leading a study with 4 others on the Unglued Book. Love it!

  323. This morning I read an email from a dear friend inviting me and some other ladies to do a Bible/book study. Our first book? You guessed it….unglued. Then I see this post. A nice little nudge maybe? As a career mama, squeezing in this activity will be tough but I’m praying that God will guide me and open doors.

  324. Stormy Johnson says:

    I love your blog and would love to win this!

  332. Our emotions are tricky. You can often feel that you are wrong while you are in the middle of coming unglued, but feel powerless to stop. So thankful for God’s grace and the grace of others when that happens to me!

    I shared the giveaway on my facebook page.

  334. saying I forgive can be an easy thing, but doing it, showing, and meaning it is the hardest. How we come unglued in front our Christian friends and worse those who are not saved is not a good example to our Father. I like the comment about glue and that is God’s GRACE.

  335. Dawn Kaser says:

    Thank you for sharing your “unglued” moment! Boy, did it sound familiar…sigh. Thank you for this giveaway! I did a small group with her Made 2 Crave Book and it was phenomenal!

  336. would love this for a friend of mine who is struggling right now!

    I tweeted about the giveaway!

  341. This book made such a terrific impact on my life that my husband asked if there was a ‘men’s’ version!!!

  342. I started getting your emails just before you went on leave over Christmas, I am glad you are back. Your emails are so uplifting and helpful. I would love to read the book Unglued because I have also came unglued both at church and at home.

  343. Thanks for sharing what God lays in your heart. I was blessed to read when you had to take a break, because its happens to me and I feel it’s God telling us to slow down. I would like to be considers for the devotional you will be giving away. I’m inNC just like Lysa….lol

  344. I have really become unglued alot lately, losing our jobs, moving hundreds of miles away with nothing but clothes and restarting my life all over again. I thought I would deal with it alot better having my family around and more time with God. I just am not getting to that point maybe this could give me a better perspective on things and help me catch myself before I unglue on some poor unsuspecting soul again. I know I am not right with God or other doing this .

  345. Beth Sanford says:

    I have the book and I’m excited to read it. I would love to win this and share with a friend! :) I tweeted, pinned, and shared this on Facebook. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great prize!

  348. I want to read this book!!

  349. The verse comes to mind how we’ve all sinned & come short of the glory of God. But thank goodness for that mercy ,,, and grace,,,, and forgiveness. I’ve had to ask for them all!!! Are you sure that was you fighting for the sticker -could have been me!! LOL

  350. Tara Dehaan says:

    Hi there, I have really been enjoying reading your blog. Thank you for being honest and writing from your heart. So many things we can relate to. I am doing the GMG Luke Study and Dig with my children. What a blessing that has been. Thank you, I would love to read one of the books.

  351. We’ve all been there at times! In your honesty you draw people towards you and Christ, and give us hope that Christ loves us even when we lose it. Thanks for keeping us focused on Christ and the Word through your online ministry.

  352. I have been coming “unglued” more and more since the birth of my 3rd child a year ago, and know I need to break this cycle before it gets worse. Would love to have this book/devotional:)

  353. Thank you for sharing such a personal story of coming unglued. You are a great example! The book sounds wonderful.

  354. What a great giveaway … I’d love to read this book. I try so hard but am so ‘unglued’ with my kids, would love to read the book and then follow up with the bible study. Thank you for being so honest and giving hope to us x

  355. I would love to win this. I need to learn how to NOT come unglued.

  356. I read this blog and so need to read Lysa’s book. I’m a young stay at home mom of three girls 4 and under. Some days I come unglued WAY to easy. I’m hoping I can get this book soon so I can dive in for some insights. Thank you for all you open honestly Courtney!

  357. I shared on facebook

    Courtney,
    Thank you so much for being transparent! It is always encouraging to see how The Lord works in others lives. Bless you for your obedience!

  365. Love your blog and what you do for GMG! Thanks for your honesty! As a fellow homeschooling mama I appreciate what you do so much! You are a huge blessing..may God bless you richl!

  366. I would LOVE to win!

  367. Would LOVE to win!! Just found your blog a few weeks ago and started following you on FB! I am in a weekly study of Unglued at my church, but I do not have the book – so what a blessing to win and have it to go along with! ;) Thank you for your amazing posts, keep shining his light!

  368. This book is on my list to read this year!

  369. I pinned the giveaway, but wanted to say thank you for sharing your story I am sure it was hard to do.

  370. Lisa Seegert says:

    How fun Courtney. And what a blessing you can be to another sister in Christ. This sounds like a great read that I could apply more right here in my own household starting with my husband – boy you want to talk about raw emotions and then with 6 children, 3 of them being homeschooled. I would love to be able to share this with my two oldest girls 16 and 13 – (you want to talk about raw emotion – whew!). Not to mention the coffee. Maybe Hannah(16) and I could get a coffee and discuss these important things.

    I am so glad I found you. This week has been very encouraging as I minister to my husband – God is so good!

    In Christ alone,
    Lisa

  371. I tweeted it too!

  372. I asked for this book for Christmas but didn’t get it. :( Hoping I win this giveaway so I can finally read it! ;)

  373. Thank you for this. It spoke to me because I too often let my emotions get the better of me. I think Lysa’s book sounds like a must-read for me.

  374. Cindy Wilkinson says:

    I have come unglued more often than I would want to admit! Unfortunately I live my life unglued :( thank you for your honesty! Thankful for people and friends who understand what forgiveness is!

  375. I pinned this on my A Woman After God’s Own Heart board.

  376. I would love this! Thanks for your transparency and encouragement that we don’t have to be perfect to be a daughter of the King!

  380. Thanks for your blog and this giveaway. :-)

  381. Thanks for sharing your “Unglued” story….it is refreshing to see women being real with one another. I just started reading your blog in the fall, a couple of months before your break. Glad you are back.

  382. Thanks for sharing. So easy to become unglued especially where our children are concerned!

  383. I can so relate to your story today. I’ve definitely been there. I would love to read the book!

  384. Christine Dr. says:

    thanks for the transparency in your story – it is good inspiration for my unglued moments – and thabnks for bringing me back to the Cross. & his Grace. Woudl really love la chance to win this !,

  385. Marcia S. says:

    Thanks for sharing your story. such a nice giveaway.

  386. Courtney, Thank you so much for being so transparent. I understand where you are coming from! I definitely need to read Unglued. Unfortunately I find myself there more often than I would like to. I pinned your book under my section on Christian Spiritual Growth Resources.

    Your blog has been an inspiration to me and I plan to launch Stressed or Blessed in the next few weeks. Thanks for your beautiful example of Christlike leadership. Joanne Putnam

  387. I become “unplugged” more often than I would like. I would love to read this book!

  388. I am so glad you are back! You are such an inspiration to me!

    I would love to win this giveaway! I think I come unglued every day, especially with the kids!

  389. I love example of grace and reconciliation shown in your story. Love the giveaway offer. Thanks for sharing

  390. I am new to Women Living Well. This is actually my first email from you and it’s a giveaway opportunity, double score! Thanks for your inspiration to women. Keep doing what you do and be blessed!

  391. Reena Barnett says:

    Thank you for your blog and the GMG bible study! I happened upon your blog on Pinterest and I am hooked! I am doing the Luke study and I love it. It is such a good way to start the day! Please consider me for the giveaway! I can never get enough of God’s word, it fuels my soul and lights a fire in my heart!

  392. I love waking up to your messages!. I have come “unglued” on occasion! Would live the book and other gifts. Thank you!

  393. Kistin Long says:

    Thank you for your ministry. I enjoy following you, and I would love to be entered for the giveaway!

  394. Oh, this has happened to me! And it’s so humbling to realize that I’m not as spiritually mature as I *think* I am. I’m trying to be an example of Christ and his love, and then one day I’m sleep deprived or grumpy and my sister-in-law (whose salvation we are praying for) pushes me over that edge… the sad thing is, it’s never worth it. Worse, I feel guilty that I am setting her back in finding her place in the church, because she sees me, a Christian, acting this way.

    Anyway… thanks for the giveaway!

  395. The devotional sounds AWESOME!!

  396. Meghan Humt says:

    I came unglued with a sister in Christ after a stressful Sunday with too many responsibilities. This post was very timely for me! God is good!

  397. Glad you’re back! Would love this giveaway!

  398. Sounds like a great giveaway, I’m in!

    Great, honest post! Thx for sharing your heart!

  409. I can not tell you how much I needed to hear this today. I was so ready to come unglued about a (now) silly issue at church. I think I will hold my tongue and pray. I think I need to read this book and use the devotional faithfully :) Thank you for sharing your heart!

  410. Maria in CT says:

    Thank you for this great offer!

  411. Jennifer Jerina says:

    Thank you for your blog. It is such a blessing! Yhank you for this giveaway, I just shared it with the massesmon facebook.

  412. This post was at a “God Ordained” time in my life…My husband is a missionary pastor at a church plant, working with college students (we currently live 1 hour away to take care of my husbands elderly grandmother) there are days that the glue really does not seem to be holding, but it is encouraging to know that it is not just me…and a great reminder to take those steps to make things right when I come ungluded. Thank you so much for your post and you honsety.

  413. Tiffany M says:

    So many people are looking for comfort and hope and fellowship, myself included. What is great about your blog is that you are always striving to do better and follow Him more closely, but you are also always humbling yourself and admitting imperfections. It is truly inspiring to read your thoughts and follow some of your experiences. It is so hard to admit but WE ALL COME UNGLUED. Thank you for all that you do!

  414. I have seen Unglued at Family Christian, and never taken the time to pick it up and find out what it is truely about….seems like I’m always rushing in for music and back out. I can’t wait to add this devotional to my list. I am a Traveler’s wife, homeschooling Mom of one daughter who lives miles from civilization. I come unglued DAILY. Thank you.

  415. Loved your blog post. This book sounds helpful!

  416. I haven’t heard of Unglued before. I would love the chance to win this. I am pinning this on Pinterest.

  417. Thank you so much for sharing your story of coming unglued. I have too often lately come unglued on my precious family. I believe reading Lysa’s book would really help me when my emotions go crazy.

  418. I would LOVE to win this giveaway!!! I have only read some of her book as I had borrowed it from the library and then didn’t take time to finish it before I had to return it! I would love to actually own it because I definitely deal with coming unglued!

  419. Tried to post to facebook, but got an error. I will keep trying.

  420. I loved reading your story and your blog. So often it is easy to get caught up in the rush of the world and yet Christ states simply my yoke is light, my burden is easy for you to bear. We make living so difficult in this world. Praise God for His grace and mercy. Thank you for the give away.

  421. I loved Unglued – as a woman who stuffs in public and explodes at home it was so nice to hear truth from another person owning her stuffing and exploding tendencies. What a great giveaway!

  422. I have gotten so much encouragement from this site.I look forward to the email each time:)

  423. Great giveaways. I am reading Unglued now and going to see about getti g a Bible Study going at my church. Look forward to reading the Devotional sometime. Thanks for the chance to win. Posted on facebook as well.

  424. Just found your blog! Thanks for sharing your ideas and encouragement and having a drawing! Love Lysa TerKeurst too!!

  425. Would love to have this. I am trying to find christian reading material. Times are hard with 5 kids to buy anything these days for myself so I been trying to find Free ebooks. Ok I am rambling I love your blog and I will pin this and post on my fb and I have a fb page for stay at home mothers and wifes to connect to other women. https://www.facebook.com/Wife.Mommyismylife?ref=hl

  426. It’s happened to all of us Courtney…we’re all a work in progress. God is faithful though, even when we regress. Be blessed! ~lyn

  427. Great post – I’m going to share it with women at my church. Thanks!

  428. It is encouraging to hear eachothers failures and successes in Christ thanks for sharing!

  429. How funny! I just heard about this book from a friend. I was looking for our next women’s group study, and and she suggested that we do this book. I haven’t read it yet, but after hearing her tell me what it’s about and how wonderful it is…and now seeing it on this blog, I think is God’s way of telling me that this is our next study. Having spent a majority of my life letting my emotions be in control, and now trying to help others avoid my “crazy” mistakes.. I can totally see how this book would be a blessing to so many. And it seems like it will tie into our current study on the 4:8 Principle and help us to keep “renewing our minds”. Has anyone used this book in a group setting? (I have about 20 women) Any suggestions?

  430. oh wow, this is a great giveaway! I’m a big fan of all 4 of you in the picture!! =)

  431. I have been wanting to read this book. Thanks!

  432. Thank you for sharing this!

  433. Elizabeth says:

    Sounds like a great resource to have on hand!

  434. Thank you for sharing this, as it kinda hit home for me. We all have those moments, no matter how hard we try to stay composed. Thank you again.

  435. Shaun Nearpass says:

    “Unglued” is my middle name!! I can become unglued over the most ridiculous things. Especially if I feel one of my family members has been wronged. You really convicted me today, Courtney!! I just had an “unglued” moment with a teacher. I feel I now need to apologize to her. Even if I felt I was right and she was wrong, my attitude and attack on her was very un-Christlike and very disrespecful to her as my daughter’s teacher. And the horrible example I set for my daughter!! I cringe even thinking about it. I am going to get ahold of this teacher this morning and make things right with her. Thank you for your blogs. They always speak to me where I am at at that very moment.

    I have heard so many good things about this book. I would love to be able to read it:)

  442. I came unglued last night. Here at home, but to the people that matter most to me. And why? Oh, it is so frustrating at times. Thank you for sharing so we don’t feel we are the only ones. It’s such a blessing to have women who are open and honest with each other.

  443. Thank you for sharing. I learned from you today.

  444. I became unglued at work. I’m a nurse and it gets very stressful at times. I was hurt, I cried. Now I understand that it was the stress of my work that led me to act that way. I’m looking into changing that type of nursing. Please pray that I make the right decision as it will involve me working on Sundays but it’s a job I’ve always wanted. It’s closer to home, it’s less stressful and it wil give me the opportunity to be off more days with my kids do that I can continue to homeschool them. I also have a passion for sewing and if I take this job, I can promote my business more. JennieSews.com
    Check it out. Tell me what you think. There are times I just want to quit bring a nurse and just pursue my dream but I feel that the time will come, I just need to keep on.

  445. Tonya Mayfield says:

    I have seen this book and heard great things!! Would love to read it and possibly start a small group devotion!
    Love your blog! You’re so honest and I can relate!!!

  447. Christine says:

    Even with this Valentine challenge I have felt for the first time how easy it is to become unglued many times a day and how difficult it is to praise to even think of one praise ! Why!!!!! I am striving to become a better wife for my husband and I think this devotional would be helpful to have and it complements our challenge these next few weeks as well. Thanks for all you do.

  448. I really enjoyed your blog. It is amazing how easy we can come unglued over the smallest issues of life. Thank goodness we have a gracious, forgiving God that allows us to act the fool and then start over!

    Kim

  449. Glad you are back!! This book is on my wishlist!! Great giveaway.

  450. Janelle McLaughlin says:

    Sounds like just the book for me! Thanks!

  451. I feel like I am always coming “unglued” with my family. Would love to win this!

  452. Christina says:

    I appreciate your story and can relate – I have had instances similar – where I knew I was right, but completely mishandled the situation. Thank you for the reminder of how God’s grace saves us and our relationships.

  453. First time visiting your blog – love it! And would love to win this book too! Will be back often!

  454. Magela G. says:

    What a great giveaway! I would love to win.

  455. Enjoyed this post, Courtney! It is so easy to come Unglued, at the smallest things. What a wonderful give-away. :)

  456. Gig Tillett says:

    I think Lysa wrote this book for me then realized I would need a devotional too!! Can’t wait to read them.

  457. came “unglued” on my husband two nights ago….still cringing over my behavior.
    thanks for your honesty and for allowing God to use you in this way.

  458. Gig Tillett says:

    I shared this on my FB page!

  459. What a nice giveaway. I have heard Lysa speak before. She is very real and refreshing.

  460. I did the Unglued study with my woman’s group. I would love to have this devotional .Thanks!

  461. I love your blog – you are so honest about your feelings and things you have done – where most of us would have hung our heads and not shared with anyone! I am desperately trying not to become “unglued”. My daughter has a huge exam coming up in May, which at the tender age of 11 is unfortunately too much of a huge deal where we live. We are all struggling to deal with it calmly and full of faith. Just this morning it got too much for me after I dropped the kids to school. And, I started to doubt her ability AND Gods’ ability to help her through! Opened up my bible and what did I see but Mark5:36 where it says “Don’t be afraid; just believe” What a wonderful calmness that soothes the soul. He’s always there for us – if only we just BELIEVE!

    I’m currently reading Desperate – would love to be entered for the Unglued giveaway!

  462. Robyn Wright says:

    I’m in need of Lysa’s book because I come “unglued” more times than I’m proud of.

  463. Donna Larue says:

    Thank you Courtney for being transparent with your readers. I think all of us have put ourselves in that spot before, where we come unglued over something so small, but yet at the time it seems so big! You are a blessing! Thank you for allowing God to use you to speak to the hearts of your sisters in Christ! I would love to read this book!

  464. Paula Romer says:

    Thanks for offering this giveaway, Courtney! I got the book from our library and only made it half way through when I had to return it for being waaaay overdue! What I did read helped me tremendously… But a daily devotional would help me so much keep it in the forefront of my mind every day.

  465. Becky Crago says:

    Just started this week reading your blog. I love it, and would love to be drawn for the unglued items. I will be sharing on facebook and pinterest.

  466. Lillian Gimmelli says:

    Awesome giveaway and awesome gift to win. Thanks for the opportunity to win such an great gift. Thank you!

  467. Boy did this hit home! I would love to win the giveaway!

  468. Know what you mean.
    Shame is a great and horrible teacher.
    Thanks for sharing. And Jesus, thanks for saving.

  469. I’ve been wanting this book so bad for next study!! Will be sharing on FB as well! :-)

  470. This devotional really touched my heart! Too many times in this life I find myself coming “unglued” about things that really don’t matter. Thank my heavenly Father that I can ALWAYS look to Him to glue me back together according to His plan. Just for today …. I will remember to “GAZE at The Master and GLANCE at my problem!” Be blessed today !

  471. I had to scroll quite a bit to be able to comment. Your blog left me in tears today as I thought of my own broken and lost friendships at church. Those relationships are invaluable to me. Yet, I find when I become unglued the hardest person to forgive is myself. I know what I’ve done and said even if others don’t and I know God sees that. Coming to terms with the mere fact that I am going to come unglued from time to time can be tough as I want to do “it” perfectly. Yet, I know what I learn from those unglued moments; forgiveness is always available, humility, and God’s unending and amazing grace. I need those lessons but pray I hurt others less and less as I progress down this journey. Thankful for your share and inspiration to keep writing.

  472. I’ve heard great things about this book! I would LOVE to win a copy!!

  473. Love your honesty!

  474. First of all, I love your blog. It comes along at just the right times and brings me back to my center. Thank you, and bless you for that. I would like to be entered for the give away. Reading this post I could not help but to think about my cousin. About 7 years ago I became unglued about some family things and really took it out on him and his wife. I hope that if I am blessed enough to win, I can start taking the correct steps, with God by my side, to start communicating with him again and rebuild that relationship. Thank you for considering me.

  475. I would love to be the winner of the Unglued items! When I am done with a book like this, I always include it in our church library. As the librarian, I am always on the look out for nice items like this ;-)

  476. Michelle M says:

    Refreshing to know that i am not alone with coming unglued, thanks for sharing this story and so many others to help us to understand that we all share the same struggles sometimes. This study would be nice to do with a group at church.

  477. Can I just say that I totally did this yesterday? Thank you so much for your honesty. The Lord has definitely been showing me my selfishness that has led to anger (and ultimately coming unglued!) so much lately. Thank you for your reminder of Jesus’ overabundant sacrifice and grace for us through the taking of communion–Matthew 5:24 in real life. God is good!

  478. This book sounds great I would love to win!

  479. This really hit home. Would love to win!

  480. Thank you for sharing your story about coming unglued. It opened my eyes to something that I know I need to do but am afraid of being rejected. I am sure everyone has came unglued at some point in time in their life.

  481. Elizabeth H says:

    Thank you for posting this. Honesty about being a “real person” is so refreshing!!!

    I am trying to organize a small group study using Unglued…entertaining the thought of trying to do a group with my college girlfriends…maybe setting up a blog to post thoughts? and then using skype once a week…

    love your blog! ~ tiffany

  485. Thanks for your blog posts! They are encouraging, refreshing and supporting! As I read your story and about the giveaway, I thought about dear friend of mine and I’d like to win the giveaway and give this book to that friend of mine. I’d love to read myself but at this point I see that my friend needs this more than I do! Pinned it too!

    I appreciate this opportunity!

  491. Thank you for sharing your heart this morning and being so honest! I too have had similar experiences with coming unglued… It is hard to see it in the moment because we get so fired up about the situation, but once things cool, we see more clearly. I would love to be entered into your drawing! Thank you for all you do! Stay strong!

  492. Thank you for sharing with us your “unglued” story and being so vulnerable with us.
    That really goes to show how human we all are and thank God for His Grace!
    I have a toddler and we’re planning on another one this year so the opportunities to become unglued are many…would love to read this one.
    Thank you again and much love!

  525. Heather Bateman says:

    Would love to have this. I can come unglued over some things so easily-then later I feel so “UGHHH!” Been trying to watch it and breathe more to avoid the unglued moments.

  526. I am struggling with becoming unglued while doing school with my kids. I have reached my limit and am debating sending them to school for purely selfish reasons. (Sending them to school would not solve the heart issues involved here.) Thank you for this giveaway.

  527. Nice giveaway!

  528. Christy Underwood says:

    Hello, my name is Christy and I come unglued WAY to often! I have wanted to start this series for so long!

  529. What a humbling article you wrote. Who hasn’t come unglued at one time or another. The most important thing is to keep growing in the Word so we do not come unglued. But, the next most important thing is to make it right when we do come unglued. Blessings

  530. I pinned this giveaway.

  531. Dora Alvarez-Roa says:

    Wow- how inspirational! I’m a newcomer to your blog- but it has been such a blessing to me already! Please enter me in this drawing. I would LOVE to start a Women’s Bible Book Club using this book. Sometimes we as women get so busy that we forget to not only take time for ourselves, but we forget to take our time with God. Wonderful resources for women. Thank you!!

  532. I just finished this book 2 weeks ago and am looking forward to reading the 60 day devotional blogs! Love Women Living Well blog! Thank you so much for your words of encouragement!! Blessings!!

  533. I loved this post, Courtney. What a sensitive heart your friend has! And what a great testimony of grace and forgiveness. Thank you for sharing.

  534. I love hearing the stories of coming “unglued”. It is when we share these stories that we connect with our sisters in hope of that imperfect progress. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for your post! I am reading Lysa’s book Unglued right now, and…….seeing her next week at a conference in Roseville, CA, can’t wait! I love how she makes it all so real! The devotional would be a great companion! :)

  538. Oh Courtney. It happens to the best of us, for which we can be so thankful for God’s enduring grace…given to us through the ones who love us on earth.

    Hoping to teach this to a small group of women in my community!
    Thank you for sharing!

    Great post and thanks for the giveaway!

  542. Dear Courtney,

    Boy I had to fight back the tears on this one! Thanks for sharing a not so perfect moment with us. We are all on the same path towards grace, and I don’t know about you, but God’s grace has certainly gotten me through not so perfect moments.

    God Bless You Dear!

    In Christian Love,
    Gerri

  543. Thanks for sharing. If we are honest we have all been at that place at none time or another in our lives. I sure have; more than once! The most recent was with a friend of 14 yrs and recently with Gods help I just mended a 4 yr rift with a family member who I came unglued with. It crazy the effects it has on our lives and the ripple effect it causes in others. God bless the ministry you, Lysa, Renee and others have when your ministering to the heart and soul of women who strive to be Christ like.

  544. I have heard so many good things about Unglued. Thanks for your blog!

  545. I can totally relate to this! Love your blog and “Unglued”!!

  558. There are days that all I feel is “unglued”. I am so thankful for grace! Thank you for the opportunity Courtney!

  559. Meghan Anderson says:

    I downloaded the first two chapters of Unglued for free the other day – I think it was written just for me! I’d love to win the giveaway.

  560. I love your blog, Courtney and I appreciate your honesty. Glad to have you back!

  561. You and your blog have been such an encouragement to me. I am a stay at home mother of an 8month old boy and a 3 year old boy. By God’s grace and your words of encouragement, i have been able to step into my role as a stay at home mom with more boldness. :) Because of the season i am in with 2 youngens, i am not always able to have the quiet time i would like…the scriptures that you post on facebook along with the blogs have been so helpful and just enough to help me through my day. Thank you! A few of my girlfriends have read the unglued book and loved it! I have been wanting to read it as well!! So thanks for the giveaway and for all that you do! From one unglued mom to another. haha!

    My kids to a similar thing and now I’m dying to know what your services projects were and why they didn’t qualify! Glad you worked it out and thanks for sharing…

  565. God is so AWESOME!!! Proverbs 31 & Women Living Well has been a tool God used to prepared me for a huge storm in the last few months in my marriage. It’s amazing how God is not only there for you daily, but he protects you and prepares you for future events. Allowing us to build more of a testimony to Glofiy HIM. So UNGLUED is a understatment of my life lately. :)
    THANK YOU for following God’s directions, being real, and an example of a true Titus Woman. May your day be filled with many blessing and prayers to all on this blog.

  566. I also shared on Facebook :)

  567. Thank you so much for your honesty. It has really touched my heart. I had a similiar situation with my daughters music teacher at Christian School. So thank you for being filled with the Spirit and sharing with us so we can walk out of condemnation and walk in grace.

  571. Hi Courtney! Thanks for sharing your story. So many times we fail miserably and hate to admit it to others. I have a tendency to run my mouth without thinking of the consequences or what they may cause others. I must must must read this book…and I feel that so many others are in the same shoes as we all are at times. I pinned it and facebooked it to share with all my friends. I think this may also be a great devotional to do with the my life group. After all, us sisters in christ need to stick together and help each other out! I want to thank you to for your blog! You have really inspired me to keep moving forward even when there are mountains on top of you!

    Thank you so much for your blog! I pray daily in thanksgiving for finding this. It has made me really focusing on making the necessary changes in my marriage and family life. A true blessing. I would love to be entered into your giveaway. God Bless and thank you for your service.

  574. I suffer terribly from “foot in mouth” syndrome. I pray asking for the words…I repeat in my mind over and over what I wish to say…AND THEN…nothing like I thought I would say. Emotions boil…I am awful about avoiding confrontation so back down…then in my mind really unravel. I SO could use this giveaway!! Thank you .. And God Bless

  575. Please enter me for your drawing! I so need to clamp my mouth shut more often!! Thanks!

  576. This is what we need more of in our sisterhood of believers, focus on using our words to encourage and uplift instead of break down. I have to admit, I struggle with it and have recently noticed my pre-teen daughter beginning to struggle with it, as well. I look forward to going through this study with her. I hope more and more Christians transform into encouragers who are not speaking through fleeting emotional flare-up, but with wisdom and love.

  577. Would love to win! Thank you for considering me.

  578. Have read and loved the book. Have been feeling a pull to organize a study…would love to win this giveaway ♥

  579. With 7 kids sometimes it is hard to NOT come unglued, but to have tools to use when those moments hit would be a blessing. And to be able to share them with my children would be awesome also.
    On a personal note, I have been following you for about a year and I absolutely love you. Your insight mixed with humor is a blessing. Thank you for all you do.

    I have a 15 year old son who has his driver’s permit and will be getting his driver’s license in August. I am constantly finding myself coming “unglued” as I deal with all the emotions attached to my son growing up. I am at a phase in my life where I need help with learning how to deal with my emotions in a positive way rather than coming “unglued” at the most inopportune times. I would love to receive this giveaway as I am sure it will give me the encouragement and tools I need to aid me in handling my emotions in a productive way for all who are in the line of fire. :o)

  584. Thanks for being so honest. please enter me in drawing.

  593. Thank you for sharing. I have a passion for justice, which can lead me into situations very similar to yous. I was cut to the heart as I read about your interaction. I realized that my passion, which I believe is God given,can be used in a much more godly fashion. I most certainly have been there, done that. Thankful for His grace and patience! Obviously, I’m sure I could benefit from the package. Praying God sends it to just the right person!

    I think I need to read this book. :)

  598. This is a book I have been meaning to read. I tend to let my emotions get the better of me quite often.
    I agree, we need to change our thoughts, and it will be easier for our words to be godly. “Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing to you, oh Lord, My rock and my redeemer.” Amen!

    To win such a gift would be priceless in my life. Your story brought tears to my eyes and made me reminded me of the times I’ve come “Unglued” over little things and need to change my ways. It’s a struggle and journey that we all our going through no matter where we are in our faith. Thank you so much for your ministry and I’m praying for you and your ministry.

    Thank you for offering this giveaway. I look forward to your blogs daily.

  605. I read Unglued and I felt Lysa was looking over my shoulder and writing everything down. I am a little better after reading this book. I still have my ugly days as I call them. But I know I need to ask God to forgive me and show me a better way. You hang in Courtney, you keep reaching for God each and every day. We’re all human and we all make mistakes this side of heaven. God sees your heart. Take a deep breath and see where God wants you to go from here.

  606. Stephanie says:

    Thank you for your honesty – it is so great to know I am not the only one who comes unglued. Being a homeschooler, people are always telling me that they could never homeschool because they don’t have the patience for it. I’m always telling them that I never saw that one on the list of requirements. I am thankful to have forgiving children. Thank you for your blog and for showing us it’s ok to be real.

  609. I absolutely love your blog. Thank you for returning this year! You have been a real encouragement! Can’t wait to read this book. It sounds like it’s right up my alley…

  613. My small group is currently reading Lysa’s book Unglued and we all love it. That’s really saying something because usually, whatever bible study we do, at least one person in the group doesn’t like it.

  614. I tell you this hits home with me!!!!! I am an emotional gal….who gets hurt easily. I have found myself coming unglued more times then I would like to count. Letting my emotions get the best of me and not handling difficult situations with the grace of God. Would love to read this book and go through the devotional. I love when the Lord uses other believers to show us that we are not alone in our short comings. And there is grace!!!! AMEN!!

    Keep on writing, Courtney. The world is a better place because of the light you are not afraid to shine in your corner! You are an encouragement to many!

  616. Courtney,
    Thank you so much for blogging! You have been such an encouragement to me over the past year. Would love to win this giveaway! I am always looking for a good read and this seems right up my alley. I am guilty of becoming “unglued” many times and allowing my emotions to take over. Much love!

Thank God for women who listen to his leading and write what is needed!!

  637. Carissa Huffman says:

    I have been living a bit unglued for awhile. I desperately want to add to my family, and time is slipping away–I am 44 years old, and my nearly 4 year old has even been praying every night for a baby sister. I have been doing everything I can–I do not have a huge pile of money to do intensive fertility treatments–and I had a miscarriage last year to show for it.

    I know God hears my prayers, but this has been so discouraging. To top it all off, my sister in law–whose family went through the motions to get my brother and their son baptized in a Catholic church, but never go to church and have no relationship with Jesus–is having a baby, despite all her health issues and her very weak cervix. I gotta be honest–this really feels like a dagger that pierces my heart. It seems so unfair.

    I am more than willing to adopt a baby–but, again, I don’t have a huge pile of money, so I am unable to even start the process of looking into adoption or even fostering (which I do not think we are emotionally able to do). The price I’ve found for the home study (required by every state to adopt or foster) by a social worker locally is $2000–and they have to come in my home, which is a terrifying prospect for someone who is as disorganized and has the terrible housekeeping habits I do. Adoptions cost between $4000-$25,000 depending on the circumstances. I MIGHT be able to find $4000 in a whole year’s time, but most adoptions cost much more.

    So, I have been a LOT unglued. I am trying to keep my faith up, but it is difficult. I want to see my little boy’s prayers answered in a miraculous way. If any of my sisters want to pray for us–I know I need it.

    Thanks so much, Courtney, for being so honest about yourself. At least I am not the only unglued girl running around!

  638. Could use some “glue”

  639. I am so thankful I took the time to read this. I had a seriously unglued day yesterday. Thankful God’s mercies are new today and ready to start again and see what God has in store for me and my family today. Thank you for sharing, your words were what I needed to hear.

  645. Rosemarie says:

    Thank You for being REAL and sharing your unglued moment with us all. We all have unglued moments at times yet the one thing I try to remember is WHO I AM IN CHRIST and as I rise in the morning not to forget HOW I SHOULD REFLECT MYSELF through the day. I AM A CHILD OF THE KING. God Bless!!

  646. It is so hard to apologize, especially when one gets heated in the moment and feels like it’s not their fault. I am learning to let go of my pride and apologize to make things right, even when it wasn’t just me in the wrong. Thank you for your honesty and story.

    I would love to read Unglued. It is something I could definitely benefit from.

  647. Thanks for your honesty; sadly, we all have these stories. I’d love to win.

    With triplet boys who just recently turned 5, I have plenty of opportunity to come unglued. Love your honesty because church is one of those places where the enemy loves us to come unglued. Just getting our families through the door without killing each other (lol) is a major accomplishment.

  651. I would love to add the devotional to my collection. and gift the book to a friend

  652. I giggled while I read the title “Unglued” thinking I’m gett’in “unglued” all the time ( : If I don’t win I’ll be purchasing this book.

    Always appreciate you!

    Lysa was the first of the AMAZING women I learned about ~ each of you have a special talent, ability and a Gift from God
    yes I would love to study in Unglued and have the Devotional, tho I am older I still have trials and a past I am trying to put away but most of all simply life my life in a better way with Gog and to Glorify HIM

    wow I rarely win but sure worth a try or two or three

  654. As a youth minister’s wife, I am ashamed to admit I can relate to your story in more situations than I can count. Please God for reconciliation and mercy! I would love to dig into this devotional with a delicious cup to coffee!!!

  655. Ashley Duran says:

    Thanks for being transparent! I am learning to humble myself before The Lord and cast my cares upon Him because He cares! He will fight those battles for us.. We just have to pray and ask. My son is in a cast and he’s 2. I thought for sure he’d get his cast off yesterday, even the nurse said so! So when doc came in and said two more weeks.. I was disappointed! I have a 6 year old, 4 year old, the two year old and 8 month old and my hubby is in Korea for a year with military! I definitely can have unglued moments but as I’m learning to trust God, it’s becoming easier to cast my cares on Him! I humbled myself to the doctor: smiled and said, yay, Ben! Just two more weeks!

  656. Courtney, I have been reading your blog for about a year now and I can’t tell you how much it has helped me. I feel God calling me upward to be a better wife and Mom to my kids, and your blog has been a big part of His work with me! Its hard when you can’t always “make things right” with someone, and its especially hard when that other person is your Mom. I’ve been hearing over the past 2 years how I haven’t been “honoring her” as the Bible instructs. Last summer, I went to her and apologized for hurting her and asked her to please explain what I did, because I don’t understand what I did wrong, and I can’t change something that I can’t see. She told me that she didn’t want to talk about it, that she just wants to move forward. I know that since we cannot truly reconcile, that we can only move in a different direction. Its awkward when we see each other. Thats when I read “Unglued”, and I have learned that I need to repsond the right way, even when the other person doesn’t.

  657. I would LOVE to have the unglued devotional after doing the study I think it would be a great addition.

  658. Thank you for being honest and sharing your unglued moment. I like how Lysa puts it, these moments are just God’s way of bringing things to our attention that we did not know were there. Sometimes it takes happening at church or around friends for us to realize it. Oh how I have shared in those moments too many times! So thankful for His grace and the power of forgiveness!

  659. Marsha Householder says:

  686. This is a book that I have been wanting to read for awhile. I definitely need it!

  687. I would so love to have a copy of this devotional!! I’m the most emotional person sometimes Nd can definitely relate to coming unglued sometimes! Thank you, Courtney for being so honest about your struggles. It is so encouraging!!

  688. So ironic about coming unglued at church. That was my experience this past Sunday. In fact, I blogged about it here: http://aheartofone.blogspot.com/. I’m trying to overcome child sexual abuse/incest that happened from about the age of 1 to 11 by my father. I remembered through therapy in October. My therapist abandoned me just 8 weeks after my abuse came to light. I know my God is faithful, no matter what. I would love to get the book, thank you!

  689. I would love these unglued items. This is something I am learning to deal with and seems like a devotional that would really help.

  690. Cindy Kieso says:

    What an awesome giveaway! I think we all, unfortunately, have those unglued moments. Thanks for being so honest!

  691. Anne rightler says:

    Unglued. How many times has that happened in my life thank you for sharing your experience. It’s always encouraging to know we are not alone in our responses to life challenges.

  692. Karen Braaten says:

    I read this and realized I am already ‘coming unglued’ and worrying about my sister making a scene at my son’s upcoming wedding. I am stopping that conversation in my head now and thanking God for putting these words in front of me to read this morning. Timing …. oh, yes, perfect timing. God’s timing. Evan and Rachel’s wedding will be perfect – I have nothing to worry about. Thank you.

  693. Anne rightler says:

  699. jill jennings says:

    What a perfect word for me today. I had my own “unglued” moment this morning in the kitchen with my husband. As I drove the kids to school, the Holy Spirit kept prompting me and I soon called my husband to apologize….so hard to swallow my pride!!! We had a sweet conversation and then I logged on to read this blog. God is so gracious and kind to not only show my my need for Him, but also to point out that I am not alone. We are all in this mess together and He can shine through our brokenness. Thank you so much for your authenticity!!

  700. I’d love to win and get to read and apply Unglued to my daily walk; great giveaway!

  701. I’d love to win! Thanks for sharing!

  703. I love the unglued book! I’m almost finished reading it! I keep telling my friends and family about it. I would love to win this and give it to someone!!

  704. Thank you for being so transparent! It is real women like you that are honest enough to share what their lives are really like that are a true inspiration to all of God’s people.

  705. I would love to win a copy of this book! It sounds exactly like something I need!

    • Susan Glardon says:

      I needed to hear this message, Thank You! I shared this on twitter, and facebook. God Bless you for all the work you do to inspire people. You have helped me to know Christ better through your blogs, websites, youtube videos, etc. I feel blessed, I am a Christian but as time goes on sometimes we get stuck in a rut and don’t make the time for building an intimate relationship with God. IT takes alot of time and effort and I know I slack at times. I also, know when I make the time to pray daily, read the word and apply it to my life it changes my outlook on life and my day it makes it brighter. It also, helps those whom I come in contact with because I am a more pleasant person to be around.

  706. Unglued, the story of my life right now!! Army wife, mom, small business owner, Kids worship leader: I have so many opportunities to come unglued! I would love to win this because I so desperately need to get a handle on it. I shared you on FB and I tweeted it!! Have a blessed day!!

  707. i so want to learn how to deal with my “ungluding times”

  708. Hi. Just subscribed to your blog a couple days back. Really looking forward to being inspired by your blog. Too many times I have become “Unglued”! As it stands I became unglued on Monday with my husband and wouldn’t you know it, God led me to your website! LOL He truly has a sense of humor. There is so much to catch up on and I am looking forward to it.
    This Proverbs 31 Woman is quite unfamiliar to me. I am so unfamiliar with my femininity and who I am supposed to be according to God and who I think I should be! So confused !!!! Don’t want to give up, but sometimes…..

  709. Thanks for sharing! I would love to win! :)

    Blessings!

  710. I have never left a comment before so I wanted to let you know how much of an encouragement you are to me. How real, open and honest you are about your struggles God uses so very much in my own life and I know in many others as well. I hope to continue leaving comments and getting to know you more personally. Thank you so much! Please enter me into the giveaway and I did post your email on Facebook to let others know :). Hope you have a blessed day!

  711. Debbie Minter says:

    Thanks for a wonderful giveaway offer!

  712. Loved reading this post. So glad you attacked the spirit of religion head on….both with addressing the rules of what exactly qualifies as “service” for your kids and you and your friend forgiving one another. That religious spirit is very active in our churches but, you confronted it! When confronted with religion I come unglued at times too. I can alway do a better job of keeping my emotions in check!

  713. Thank God for His grace on us. Thanks for sharing.

  714. Melissa Kiser says:

    I would love it win this!

  715. Awesome post, we have all been there. Thanks for your transparency. Your words are encouraging.

  716. Would love to read this book! I tend to come unglued at the worse possible times! Thanks so much for your transparancy, Courtney. I enjoy your blog so much! I’ll share this on FB!

  717. Stephanie says:

    Beautifully written! I have felt very unglued over the past year. I have seen this book many times, but haven’t had the opportunity to pick it up, so please enter me in the drawing!!

  718. Thanks for your transparency in sharing your unglued moments. I think most of us think we are the only ones who have those. But when we are real…it encourages others and makes us feel less alone at the same time. Thanks again…and hoping to win!!

  719. I loved the book. It has helped me make imperfect progress. I would love to read the new study.

  720. Thanks for sharing your testimony about coming unglued.

  721. My favorite quote from the book is “feelings are indicators, not dictators”. I can’t wait to get my hands on the devotional!

  722. I have had many moments where I’ve come unglued! I knew that this book was for me when I first got the email from Proverbs 31 Ministries when it was being released to order ahead of time. I have been unable to get one though so far. Now that I am pregnant with baby number 4 I have had more unglued moments at home and work than I’d care to admit. Whether I am drawn for this give away or not I am totally getting these books. I love getting your emails! :)

  724. Loved this story! I am ashamed to think of how often I come “unglued”! Thankful for Jesus who “glues” us back together!

  725. If I don’t win this giveaway, I will be going to Mardel and buying it today! And Courtney, I am the queen of “if only I could turn back time and keep my mouth shut”! I pray everyday for the mind of Christ so that I will have the “mouth” of Christ!! :)

  726. Brittany N. says:

    Boy do I do this! ha! unglued, that’s my middle name…it’s something I struggle with, and I know others do too. I always say “Oh, i have my dads attitude…” and I know that’s just an excuse…I apologize alot!

  727. Shared with my GMG group!

  728. Love the quote by Lysa.

  729. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win this package – in need of a new devotion book :)

  732. Jess Miller says:

    Sounds like an amazing devotional. I would love to win! Thank you Courtney!

  733. I’m so happy you’re back and sharing once again! I’m looking forward to checking out Lysa’s book and devotional “Unglued”. I’m a very high spirited person and have a tendency to come “unglued” easily. I loved where you’re describing God’s amazing Grace. washing over you in that very moment of communion and forgiveness…a perfect reminder…especially in those moments of “ungluedness”! :)
    Blessings on your day!

  734. I am in need of this book! Just waiting for paycheck day to buy it from amazon…so I’m really excited to see that there is a drawing for it!!

  735. I just got done reading this post, Amazing…Really touched home for me…I realized that this has been me too. I have come Unglued for small or ridiculous reasons. I would love to win this giveaway.. Thank U for always giving all your hearts.

  736. God has really been dealing with me about coming unglued… on my kids and my husband… They don’t deserve it and I have had to come to all of them and apologize (even though my kids are under 6yrs old, they need to know that it is wrong). Thank you for the chance to win this!

  737. Kasey Oakley says:

    I am planning to read this book and devotional, and it would make it even more awesome if it was a freebie win:) I look forward to reading both either way!

  738. Kelly Ferguson says:

    I would love to win this devotional set! Thanks for posting!

  739. Hi, new to your page and would love to win the giveaway.

  740. I can think of SO many occasions where my actions would qualify for this term – “unglued”!! The best and only option, is exactly what you did – “fall on the sword”, so to speak, humble yourself and apologize…..as a result, I end up doing a lot of apologizing!!

    Courtney, thanks for the opportunity to win the awesome gift!!!

  743. Candi Mace says:

    WE ALL HAVE OUR UNGLUED MOMENTS. I tend to have a few extra each day/night. My hubby lost his job at 17 years with the same company in November. He has since found another job but is working 16 days away from home. (6 1/2 hours drive time away from me and our son.) We have a 7 year old son, I work full time as a librarian and now it seems every 16 days, I’m a single parent. We hardly get to talk to my hubby and our son has melt down moments when he is really tired and wants to Skype with daddy and can’t. I am myself personally learning how to as a mom, to try not to have those “unglued” mornings where it just ruins the whole day. This book and gift pack and bible study would really help me. Love Lysa Terkerst, I saw her at the Women of Faith Conference a few years back, then I saw her a Feminar about 2 years ago. Awesome and definately a true mom and a person I look up to live like. I pray one day I can be as strong as she shows her faith in adopting children and being momma. All us momma’s need a little break and sometimes we need an “unglued” moment, I’m just trying to learn how to do mine in private and get it over with. Much love and many prayers to you all, Candi (Texas)

  744. Thank you for sharing this story! We all become unglued about such important-in-the-moment-but-silly things. I am so looking forward to reading Lysa’s new book and devotional! Thanks for the opportunity to win one :)

  745. Danielle C says:

    My ladies small group at church went through Unglued together the month it came out. Such a phenomenal book!! We were also blessed to be able to attend a conference and hear Lysa speak live. She has such a powerful ministry to women, as do you Courtney! You’ve also been a blessing to our group! I’ve been looking forward to getting the new devotional! Thank you for the opportunity to win!!

  746. Hi Courtney…I just shared your awesome link on FB.

    Blessings on your day!

  747. You always have the best giveaways. Thank you! :)

  748. Hope Anderson says:

    A close friend has this book and said it is awesome. I have been starting a collection of books in the category and becoming a more Godly mother and wife and it would be so exciting to have this book to add to that collection. Thank you Courtney for the blessing you are to so many women.

  749. Jane Curtis says:

    Thanks for sharing. How many times have I become unglued over something so trivial! Would love to read this book!

  750. Oh, Courtney, I am there with you. Thank you for this post, it’s amazing how God uses us to encourage others asking for His wisdom & encouragement as we struggle with life. Thank you, you are my blessing today! Oh & would love to have the book :)

  751. Lynnette Lynch says:

    It is always a comfort to find out that we are all human, having human moments, but it is even nicer to know there are others out there that are like me striving to be better, and go beyond our humanness…I am not alone :)

    Blessings+

  752. Her book sounds like just what I should be reading in my continuing journey towards being who God made me to be.
    I love your honesty and humility that pours out into your writing. So glad I found women living well.!

  753. I would love to win this book!! Lysa is such an inspiration, and I know here book will be too! Hoping I win!!! :)

  754. We are homeschooling for the first time this year. To say the least, there are lots of “unglued” moments going on around here. I would love to read this and apply it to my days. Here’s hoping I win! *wink

  755. I so need to read this devotional! Since I found your website I have been reading a lot more. I finished my 1st Sally book 2 weeks ago and am now reading Desperate. What a joy this book has been to me :) With 2 small children I finally feel like I am not a failure for not always having it together.

  756. What a great reminder of how much we need grace! And how we need to walk in it daily – it is such a constant, constant work to try to not be “of this world.” Thank you for your honesty and for the giveaway. It looks like a fabulous book!

  757. I have been Unglued more than I would like to remember! I would love to read the book! Excited about the contest. Thank you!

  758. I would love to have this devotional and Bible study!! I have a group of girls that love, love, love Lisa and her words of wisdom from God’s Word.

  759. Dawn Holloman says:

    I was encouraged by your words today. I’ve worked at a Christian school for 15 years and I’ve come unglued a time or two myself. I’m so glad our forgiving Lord has given us a way to make things right when we do wrong. Keep your eyes on Christ!!

  760. Tessa Smith says:

    Thank you so much for your transparency! I can totally relate to some of those embarrassing unglued moments, unfortunately!

  761. Thank you so much for the chance to win this. This would be such a blessing in my life right now! : )

  762. you ladies are such an inspiration….thanks for the ‘giveaway’, too :)

  763. Does it only count if we’ve become unglued at church? I can’t remember ever doing that at church, but I sure have done it at home. I admit that I am neither a wife or a mother, but I’m a sister and a daughter and I’ve become unglued at the ones I love the most before :(

  764. Wow! I would love to read these. A devotional is a great idea as a companion to the book.

  765. Thanks for sharing your Unglued story. I would love to win this!

  766. We are thinking of doing “Unglued” for our ladies bible study. This would be a wonderful package to have!

  774. Thank you for sharing the “uglies” of life. Praise The Lord for grace & mercy. Would be fun to win this giveaway.

  775. Pinned it!!

  776. Wow! Your testimony really resonated with me. I am struggling with pride and time and finding God’s will for me and my family. I fight with the feeling of entitlement that says,”I’m super busy and stressed so others need to make allowances for me.” Trying to acknowledge the problem and fix it without beating myself to a pulp. Well, I guess I can’t fix it…but I am willing to see God transform me by His power. I am anxious/hopeful to see what the “me” would look like without all the messed up pride.
    Thank you for sharing.

  777. I would love to win this giveaway. I also LOVE your honesty!!

    I Pinned it and posted it to FB.

  780. Thank you for your open honesty. All of us need to be open to the leading of the Lord for full comfessions of sine repentance so that we can be totally forgiven and freed. Your dear friend showed great humility and being open to the leading of the Holy Spirit is seeking you out and making things right.

  790. Just what I needed to hear today. Thank you for sharing from the heart.

  791. shared on Facebook

  792. Oh, dear, I needed to read this today. I have been struggling through the flu, while taking care of my nearly adult daughter, who has a stomach virus, and now my hubby has decided he has a head cold and needs to be home on bedrest as well. Guess who has to fix meals still, keep up with the constantly growing pile of dirty laundry, fetch tissues, drinks, crackers, meds, etc…? Oh, AND keep up with the 4 younger children in the house, and sterilizing everything several times a day so they don’t catch this as well! Not the first time in my journey as a mother, and surely, not the last, but this time, it is on my very last nerve. I have become unglued many times over the past week, and not only with my family.
    I would love to win this giveaway! I can use all the help I can get when it comes to restoring and preserving my relationships with God, my family, and my friends. Thank you!

  793. Would LOVE this!!! What a great giveaway!
