In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences of rejection – from the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over to the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father. She leans in to honestly examine the roots of rejection, as well as rejection’s ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God.
With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa will help you:
- Stop feeling left out by believing that even when you are overlooked by others you are handpicked by God.
- Change your tendency to either fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process your hurt.
- Know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady your soul and restore your confidence in the midst of rejection.
- Overcome the two core fears that feed your insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging.
How the Blog Tour Will Benefit You
During the blog tour, we will post on both Lysa’s social media platforms with a link directing traffic back to the blog tour page. This will give our audience an opportunity to find your blog space as a participant in the tour (and completely fall in love with you!)
How the Blog Tour Works
The blog tour will take place during the month of August. We suggest any of the following prompts that are aligned with the Uninvited message. And we realize you may not have time to read the entire book. So, we’ve marked the sections of the book that correlate with these suggested prompts to make this more doable for you.
- “Rejection steals the best of who I am by reinforcing the worst of what’s been said to me.” How have the deep hurts of your past stolen joy from today? (page 8)
- “God’s love isn’t based on me. It’s simply placed on me. And it’s the place from which I should live… loved.” What are some practical ways that you “live loved”? (pages 30-40)
- “Relationships don’t come in packages of perfection, relationships come in packages of potential.” How has this played out in your life? (page 90)
- Ten Things You Must Remember When Rejected – Explain how one of these statements has been true for you or choose a statement that you’re holding onto in a current situation. (pages 130-145)
- “Heartbreaking seasons can certainly grow me but were never meant to define me.” Share how God has used some of your most painful times to grow your relationship with Him. (pages 196-198)
