“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.” – Publisher’s Weekly
“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.” –Bob Goff, New York Times bestselling author of Love Does
“Lysa has done it again! You absolutely won’t be able to put down this book. It’s compelling from the first page to the last. With her trademark vulnerability, Lysa lays out a heartfelt means to managing the fears, rejections, insecurities, and unsteadiness we all experience. Trust us when we tell you that you’ve never read a book like this before. Don’t miss out. We simply can’t recommend Uninvited enough.” –Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, #1 New York Times bestselling authors of Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts
“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!” –Chris Hodges, Senior Pastor, Church of the Highlands; author of Fresh Air and Four Cups
“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.” –Jefferson Bethke, bestselling author of Jesus>Religion and It’s Not What You Think
