Terry, OHOHAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A helpful readMarch 7, 2019Terry, OHOHAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A friend of mine gave me this book as a gift. She bought extra copies to give to friends. I thank her for that.
So very often as humans we all feel like this. It's Not Supposed To Be This Way. Especially to those of us who feel like just as we are learning how to deal with one issue, another hits, then another. We wonder if we can ever have a normal life.
This is actually my first read by this author and I'm so glad I read it. This author is so open about all her problems and disappointments, not holding anything back. Since she has gone through so much, she can relate and understand how we are feeling.
So many times we read books on this subject where the author quotes scripture and give their personal views on how God is always there and he never turns his back on us. While this is true, this author has lived with these issues so truly understands how we feel. Honestly, there have been times when I have questioned why God has allowed so much to happen in my life.
This book helped me so much that all I can say is, thank you Lysa Terkeurst.

Susan Barrett5 Stars Out Of 5Raw, Real, and CourageousJanuary 29, 2019Susan BarrettQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Wow, this book. I've followed TerKeurst's journey and read her books for the past several years, and the raw, vulnerable honesty and elegance with which she writes are unmatched. I knew this book would be one written from a place of pain, but one that would bring hope, and I wasn't wrong. It's a lifeline, one from a person in deep pain to a person in deep pain. Its honesty is unparalleled and so, so appreciated. I admire the courage and authenticity it took to write such a manuscript, and even more so to write with such hope and faith. It's Not Supposed to Be This Way is a moving read, one that I would recommend to anyone who has ever experienced pain or disappointment in their lives, so, to anyone. There are parts that made me laugh out loud, and parts that spoke to the deepest parts of my soul. I loved that the chapters ended with a recap, some questions to apply the material to the reader's personal life, and verse references to read. It was practical, helpful, and beautiful.
