There is nothing I love more than feeling as if Im chatting with a friend over a cup of coffee while reading a book. And this book was just that, from cover to cover.
I think as women, weve all felt Uninvited at one point in our lives. God created women to crave deep personal relationships, so our friendships are a huge part of who we are. Chances are, right now youre either smiling because youre thinking about your own bestie or youre feeling sad because you wish you had a bestie. Either way, your heart connects with the idea of friendship.
I remember a time last year where it felt as if I watched friendship after friendship roll across my Facebook feed. Gals going on lunch dates, littles play dates, meeting for coffee, selfies together here and there. And here I was, sitting at home taking selfies with my chickens.
Lysa tackles the emotional issues of rejection and loneliness in Uninvited. Time after time I found myself saying Yes, oh my goodness, me too! She emphasizes that there is a reason for this season and its not to harm you. Goodness, I should maybe get that tattooed on my arm. Lysa discusses the damaging beliefs we so eagerly embrace and the hurtful ways we deal with those beliefs. She then offers us the truth and promises found in Gods Word.
Every person should read this book. It is such is a healing for the brokenhearted. Gods love for us is so real! When we are in times of need, when were lonely and when were Uninvited He wants us to run to Him. To crave Him. To find comfort in the love story He wrote for us.

March 16, 2017
This is an excellent study, personally and with a group (I'm doing both). Lysa makes you feel like she is sitting down and having a one-on-one with you alone. She is personable, knowledgeable and refreshing. This is SUCH a relevant teaching for the times we are living in! Our church announced this for a women's ministry study and we had several men approach and as that they have this study as well! I'm grateful for such an affective study!
