Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely

Lysa TerKeurst. Thomas Nelson, $16.99 trade paper (240p) ISBN 978-1-4002-0587-5
TerKeurst (Unglued), president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, addresses the darkly emotional issues of rejection and loneliness. Blending personal stories, a wry sense of humor, and biblical teachings, TerKeurst writes as though she’s chatting with a close friend. Many women will relate to her fears that the woman on the next elliptical hates her, or to her total panic when she walks into a room filled with people she doesn’t know. TerKeurst doesn’t just share empathetic anecdotes for readers in a rut; she focuses on digging down to the roots of anxiety and providing tools for overcoming self-doubt and handling the pain of rejection. TerKeurst is candid about how women allow rejection to define their worth and how too often they approach the world from a place of scarcity and emptiness. She encourages her readers to “live loved”—to abide, delight, and dwell in God and practice an abundance mentality. Accompanying Bible verses, takeaway lessons, and practical applications help the reader put TerKeurst’s words of advice into action. (Aug.)
