New York Times bestselling author of Love Does
Lysa is one of my favorite people. It’s not because she’s smart or deep or caring, although she’s all of these things. Lysa impresses me because she’s real and transparent and honest. She’s got plenty of guts and grit to get through difficult times, but what she has even more of is this—Jesus. She’s learned what dazzles Him isn’t our successes, but our faith. This book will point you back toward Jesus when it feels like you’ve lost your way.
Bestselling author of Jesus>Religion and It’s Not What You Think
This book is a must read. Lysa speaks beautifully yet prophetically to a culture that uniquely is able to see what our friends are eating, playing, doing, and planning at any moment with the little device in our pocket. My favorite part is that Lysa turns our eyes to what’s most important though, and that is the great invitation we have to sit at the table with the Living God who has been for us from the beginning.

Lysa TerKeurst has an undeniable gift for sharing her heart’s struggles in ways that strengthen and equip the lives of others. I can’t remember the last time I read a book with so many insights into human nature and even more gold nuggets of biblical truth. Don’t miss this book—it will bless you more each time you read it!
TerKeurst, 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.)
As a woman who has faced rejection more times than I would care to recall, Uninvited was the drink my thirsty soul needed. In my walk with Jesus, I have often cried out for healing and searched for words of Truth to stand on. This book has provided me with those words and also taught me so much on forgiveness. If you are searching for hope, this book has exactly what you need.
The great beauty of this book is that it doesn’t just empathize with the pain of rejection, but it instills a godly courage into your soul to help you learn to walk with holy confidence. A confidence rooted in the steadfast, everlasting, wildly passionate, and abundant love of Jesus. This is a must read!
