Publisher's Summary

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 listeners:


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 10 days to steady their souls 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

Very helpful and insightful.

I brought the audio version and also book, I listened to the audio version first and it was good for me to get a good grasp of the topics and listen to while going out. I will use the book to do a more detailed study, so I can learn, understand, more forward and grow. The author's use of the bible, highlighting scriptures to use and pray with and how people in the bible (David and Abigail) dealt with rejection was very useful to know and use to understand roots of their and our situations where we may have been rejected, and how we react. The author was very open about her childhood and younger years, even friendships and marriage to bring over some points, which I appreciated. Also the last chapter on looking at our blind spots, was definitely needed, we have a part to play in changing to. I would highly recommend this book to men as well as women, parents, teens, teachers, church leaders, also Non-Christians looking to understand this area. I realise not everyone will like the Christian aspect of the book, but it's still worth a look. The audio version may be cheaper.

What you need to hear-not what you want to.

I was seriously lacking Christian literature in my day to day until I decided to read this. Challenging and thought provoking but so loving. A good read if you're feeling unpopular or unimportant.
