TerKeurst, Lisa. Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out and Lonely. Nashville, TN: Nelson Books. 2016.


Being rejected is never easy. In her new book, Uninvited, New York Times best-selling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, Lysa TerKeurst, shares her own rejection and the joy she has still been able to achieve. With scriptures, quotes, compassion, personal stories and grace, she encourages those rejected by parents, friends, community, situationsĀ or life to turn to God. With humor, honesty and sensitivity, Uninvited touches the heartbreak caused by rejection.

Though perhaps not exactly what I assumed this book would entail, what I did find inside was well worth the read. With tidbits of advice and tons of encouragement, Lysa TerKeurst empowers and recognizes strength, goodness and mercy for one’s self through leaning on God. With ten truth-points to remember, many relevant quotes, down-to-earth honesty and an engaging style, this devotional book is definitely appropriate for a women’s ministry, Bible study, and personal growth. Though not my favorite of her books, I am glad I read it.
