Lysa TerKeurst in the Studio

Tonight you'll have the chance to join myself and Lysa TerKeurst, author of Unglued, for a live Unglued webcast! We'll be taking your questions and comments on how to handle when you become "unglued" and how to make wise decisions when our emotions get the best of us. Lysa joined me in the studio last week to give us advice on what to do when you become "Unglued." Listen to how she reacts to certain circumstances below and let us know what situations in life get you "unglued"!

Why Lysa wrote Unglued:

Pretending that everything's alright, "Walking Plastic Versions of Godliness"

What to do when you feel like you're not being heard and advice on holding your tongue "our goal is not perfection, but imperfect progress"

When the last straw breaks...

When to say "no" if your cup is full and dealing with the guilt:

What to do when you take on too much, "where there is a lack of rest, there is an abundance of stress"

On forgiving ourselves and others:

When things don't go as planned

About feeling inadequate

Dealing with criticism

Coping with loss

Greatest Investment

You seem to give more if you know what it feels like to struggle.

One of those new studies out today, saying that people that have money less, give more.  They found that families earning less give about 7 and a half percent of their income, where families earning more give almost 3 percent.

Reminds you of that story of The Widow’s Offering in the bible.

"Jesus sat down near the collection box in the Temple and watched as the crowds dropped in their money. Many rich people put in large amounts. Then a poor widow came and dropped in two small coins."

I love how Jesus pointed her out…

"Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has given more than all the others…for they gave a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she had to live on.” -Mark 12:  41-44

Love what Alisa, a K-LOVE listener from Kansas City ,said about this.

She said growing up they didn't have much, but her Grandmother made it very clear that, "the greatest investment you can ever make is our tithing and offering."
