It is not going to go anywhere until the wind picks back up again. Even feel you are like the sailboat and “becalmed” in life? Pat Layton addresses this issue with five different sections: Section One: Just Imagine Life Unstuck, Section Two: Peace With The Past, Section Three: Purpose In The Present, Section Four: Passion For The Future. There is a moment when we become “stuck”; relationships, family, finances, marriage, you name it there comes a moment where there is no forward momentum. Pat Layton knows all about this and she is our cheerleader in this book, “hang on we will become unstuck and we will all be O.K.” So let us take encouragement from the wisdom that Ms. Layton provides here and increase our passion for the future. I think this is a great resource for everyone and would be a great gift for friends and family. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Revell.

Life UNSTUCK is a book I know I’ll be returning to time and time again as I move forward through life. I have read Psalm 139 many, many times, and yet never have I understood it as I do now. Life UNSTUCK has given me a better understanding of myself, to be sure, but it has also given me a greater understanding of the compassion and faithfulness of our loving God. I highly recommend this book. It is certain to live up to it’s promises of helping you find peace with your past, purpose in your present, and passion for your future.

Women tend to be stuck. Stuck in their routines and stuck in their spiritual lives. There are a lot of factors that can cause us to be stuck. So the author has taken an in-depth look at some of these factors and written how to un-stick our lives so we can live life to its fullest potential. If we can become unstuck in life we will behave, think, and react to life differently. I love this cover. It captures the essence of the book while grabbing my attention. The author starts out with a hilarious story about herself and quickly draws the reader in. She then proceeds to get right to the heart of the matter and lays out exactly what being stuck is all about. I loved her writing style, presentation, and personal stories. The book felt like it was written just for me. But I think most women will feel this way as well. It was helpful, insightful, and inspiring. I will definitely be sharing this book with my small group. I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
Oh my goodness. Pat is so much fun! You know you are in for a fun read once you've read the very first story in this book. I won't spill the beans! It's too funny. You'll have to order it for yourself! This is a great book. She has a fun way of making her points using stories and analogies. She also has some fun checklist stuff for people like me that love to "find out their personality" and such. The point of the book is in the title. Learning to find peace, purpose and passion. It's beautifully written and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Please pick up a copy for yourself and one for your friend! In fact, go through it together. I think you'll really enjoy it and learn a lot about yourself and why you are "stuck" where you are. Thank you, Revell, for this fun book! As always, this is my honest opinion. Here's to many more!!
