Creating a Life Free From Chaos

Emergency Hiatus

My amazing Modern Simplicity Community: I need to take a bit of a break from the blog. As some of you may know, our home burned down last night. My husband, our children, and I are all ok, but we are devastated that we lost all 3 of our fur babies. We ask for and appreciate all prayers. Please note I will be taking a break from social media during this time. If you need to contact me, email, FB messenger or text is best. I’m reading all messages, but please don’t be offended if I don’t respond right away. I’m trying to consider this a new path to an even simpler lifestyle, but for now it’s just shock and numbness.

Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst: Book Review

Uninvited book reviewBlending personal stories, humor, and biblical teachings, Lysa TerKeurst writes as though she’s chatting with a close friend. That’s how I felt as I read Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely.

Lysa, president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, tackles the emotional issues of rejection and loneliness in Uninvited. Lysa helps identify the damaging beliefs we embrace and the ineffective ways we deal with those beliefs. She then offers us the truth and promises found in the Bible, God’s Word.

In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own stories and struggles with rejection and gives us concrete truths to combat the lies the Enemy presents us with. She offers ways to change our tendencies to fall apart or control the actions of others by adopting healthy ways to process the pain.

Lysa packs the book with Bible verses, takeaway lessons, and practical applications to help the reader put her advice into action.
