The enemy wants us to feel rejected, left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ's powerful love.
In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection - from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over.
With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa helps listeners:

I was seriously lacking Christian literature in my day to day until I decided to read this. Challenging and thought provoking but so loving. A good read if you're feeling unpopular or unimportant.
I brought the audio version and also book, I listened to the audio version first and it was good for me to get a good grasp of the topics and listen to while going out. I will use the book to do a more detailed study, so I can learn, understand, more forward and grow. The author's use of the bible, highlighting scriptures to use and pray with and how people in the bible (David and Abigail) dealt with rejection was very useful to know and use to understand roots of their and our situations where we may have been rejected, and how we react. The author was very open about her childhood and younger years, even friendships and marriage to bring over some points, which I appreciated. Also the last chapter on looking at our blind spots, was definitely needed, we have a part to play in changing to. I would highly recommend this book to men as well as women, parents, teens, teachers, church leaders, also Non-Christians looking to understand this area. I realise not everyone will like the Christian aspect of the book, but it's still worth a look. The audio version may be cheaper.
"Great book wish Lysa read it"
The content of this book is a+++ however I like it better when the author reads their own material
"Please record your own books Lysa!"
Would love to hear the author read the book. Loved the book, but would rather read than listen if it's not the author reading it on Audible.
"I've longed for this type of book my entire life!"
Not only did I buy the book, I've listened to the audio version as well. I will definitely read, listen to, and use this book daily! I'm so happy that Lysa listened to God's voice and allowed Him to speak thru her. This book is encouraging, uplifting and most of all...in the end it makes you feel INVITED! I loved it and I'd highly recommend it.
Almost every chapter, spoke directly to my heart and spoke purpose into my "real life" situations, both past and present!
Once again, it is amazing! Get yours today! 💞
"Good material, but the reader is not good"
The reader is talking WAY TOO fast. I even slowed it down but it's distorted sounding at some points. Why didn't Lysa read it? Her voice is so good I think it's half of why I love hearing her advice.
"Great content/narrator somewhat annoying"
I am on my second listen to this book in 24 hours and have been tremendously blessed by the content. Lysa hits the nail on the head for me on all points. I especially love the prayers in chapter 14. Ginny Welsh's narration doesn't really suit my taste. I found myself initially irritated by her voice and reading style. However, the quality of the content enabled me to bear it.
It is hard to put into words how well this book spoke to my heart. My favorite part were the chapters on Abigail & "me too"and the one describing the importance of going through the pain, not always trying to numb it. Thank you to Lysa for sharing some of the deepest parts of her heart. This gave me renewed hope.
"Reflective and Realistic"
Loved it from chapter one to seventeen. Listened to it in two days! I am excited to hear what God is really saying rather than what I am hearing.
I would like to comment on the Narration of this book, since others have. I was not sure I wanted to buy this Audio book due to the performance comments, but I really wanted to hear the book, which is my new favorite Reading Experience :) I too could not enjoyably listen to it at 100% of speed, so I did slow it down to 75. At first a few words seemed off, but I continued on and I am thoroughly enjoying it. The Narrator really does a fantastic job, if it is slowed down. I wish the speed could be a sliding bar, so maybe you could get 80 or 85 percent when needed.
"I love it when I read a book ..."
I love it when I read a book and God chooses to speak to me through it in a way I really needed to hear something about myself that he would like to change. Thank you Lysa so being so brave to share your life and thank you for allowing Jesus to use you to speak to hearts.
"Truly touching. A great source for inspiration."
Thank you, Lysa. I feel like you wrote this book for me. Finding this was an answer to my prayer in a time of need. I listened to the whole audio book in a day and then ordered the book to have as a reminder and inspiration.
