Life Unstuck by Pat Layton

Title:  Life Unstuck
Author:  Pat Layton
Pages:  256
Year:  2015
Publisher:  Revell
Have you ever visited an author’s website before opening his/her book?  For me, seeing an author’s website and reading some posts gives me a wider understanding of the message a writer desires to present to his/her audience.  Most authors write blog posts on their sites frequently, which help me see a broader timeframe along with what the writer has possibly been learning over time.
Life Unstuck takes a look at Pat Layton’s favorite Bible passage Psalm 139, which she discovered some time ago when she was searching to become “unstuck” in her life.  With humor, she helps readers see the truth that it is much easier to get stuck than unstuck.  There are many reasons women feel stuck and Pat Layton humbly hopes that readers will come away with the main message: “God wants us unstuck and experiencing peace with our past, purpose in our present, and passion for our future.” (pg 11)
After the introduction, the author shares what she calls the Unstuck Manifesto in hopes readers will read it often whether alone or in groups.  Throughout the chapters, personal stories are shared along with the path Pat Layton walked towards her own freedom.  Pat’s path is the light by which she hopes others will walk, read her stories, but mostly let God do His work in individual hearts.
Periodically, readers are invited to visit a website to download and use material not in the book to print and get alone with God to let Him guide each individual through the activity.  While sharing her story, there is encouragement for others to discover their unique story and path.  So will you?
My rating is  4 stars.
