The enemy wants us to feel rejected left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ s powerful love.
In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over.
With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa helps readers:
- Release the desire to fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process their hurt.
- Know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady their soul and restore their confidence.
- Overcome the two core fears that feed our insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging.
- Stop feeling left out and start believing that "set apart" does not mean "set aside."
- End the cycle of perceived rejection by refusing to turn a small incident into a full blown issue.

TerKeursts books are known for speaking to Christian women in the deepest places, where rejection, anxiety, and insecurity threaten to derail faith and freedom. Yet TerKeurst does so in humorous ways, with self-deprecating anecdotes and wry observations about culture. Capturing this unusual blend of the wacky and the earnest creates a tall order for a narrator, but reader Welsh is up to the task. She has a rapid-fire delivery and a real flair for the dramatic in recounting the highs and lows in TerKeursts many stories. The sensibility of this performance is that of a friendly and intimate chat over coffee. Then the conversation turns more serious as each chapter ends in a prayer. Oddly, the combination works, mostly because Welshs performance feels so natural that talking to God at each chapters end is not all that different in tone from the chatty style throughout.
