Overview

Do you feel like you missed the boat? Are you burnt out? Have your feet been dragging the sidewalk? Do you catch yourself dreaming of what could have been? Of if-only-I-had, or if-only-I-hadn’t? This book is for anyone sitting in the audience who should be on stage, anyone reading blogs who should also be writing them, anyone supporting ministries who should be leading them. It’s for the Christians who know there is a better life, but who are just stuck in the one they’re living.       
//       
Saved in the Jesus Movement of the seventies, Chris DuPré connected with countless Christians across the world. Yet too many of those Christians, Chris discovered, have years later lost the fire and stepped back from living out their faith. Why? Because they got stuck—stuck in rejection by others, stuck in fear of the unknown, stuck in loving a comfortable life, stuck in scores of similar ruts. What can set them free from their internal prisons? And what could Christians accomplish if we all just got unstuck

This book really does give some good ideas on how to become unstuck. It shows how to get out of some ruts. It tells you to not get down but to get moving. Do something instead of going stagnant. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

If there was a book that was written for me then Unstuck is that book. Often times, I find myself dragging and feeling stuck, stuck at life, stuck trying to make something work that doesn't and the list can go on. Unstuck by Chris Dupre is one book that I highly recommend to anyone feeling like they are stuck and don't know what their next step is. This book has really helped me to finally become Unstuck in life!  I received a copy of this book for free a favorable review was not required.

Life is filled with unfulfilled dreams by many due to getting stuck in a position or recalling words from earlier childhood that keeps an individual from fulfilling their heart’s desire. Chris Dupre addresses this issue beautifully in his latest book, UnStuck. This book is written in an easy to read format with examples of well known individuals throughout history with scriptural promises to overcome the negatives and moving forward with positive characteristics with God’s amazing grace and second chances He gives to all that calls on His Name. Think about Walt Disney and all his rejections, over three hundred of them, before he saw his dream fulfilled. He didn’t allow the previous rejections keep him from fulfilling his dream. There are Biblical characters that felt rejection before they were mightily used of God, but they never gave up or became stuck in their calling. One quote from this amazing book that stood out is: “The problem for many today is that we expect the fulfillment of our dreams to come just as easily as posting our latest picture on Facebook.” Dreams are fulfilled with integrity, never giving up, hard work, following your heart’s desire and God’s leading for your life with fortitude, determination, prayers, and commitment. I highly recommend UnStuck to individuals who are feeling stuck with their current position and move forward to fulfillment their broken dreams and heart desires with God leading the way. I received a complimentary copy of UnStuck from the publisher, Whitaker House, for the tour with Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write a favorite review but have expressed by sincere thoughts.
