Do you ever feel left out, lonely, or less than? Today, learn the secret of belonging which will help you keep rejections in perspective and be better equipped to foster healthy connections in your relationships.

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. 
Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken—a love that does not reject or uninvite.


  • Pretty good, but not my thing.

    By JoBrazile
    I read this in a church book group. It’s great if you struggle with loneliness. I believe this book is meant for someone! However, i’m not a big fan of self-help books as they are often repetitive. Each chapter wasn’t that different in my opinion, but i get this a lot when I read self help books.

    This book was amazing! It really opened my eyes to how issues from my childhood has impacted every life changing decision in my life. Only God has the ability to heal and restore and when we run to Him instead of other things He will do just that.
  • From A Male Reader

    By ludwiglyle
    What an incredible book. I have to admit I’ve only read a dozen or so books by women. I’to more from a presumed lack of connection across gender lines more than anything else. Lisa’s book providentially found its way to me, and I am so grateful to have read it. As one who has struggled with rejection issues for nearly 45 years, this book was so helpful. Hearing her own process and progress bred hope for me. I five-star recommend this one to anyone - male or female.

  • Daddy Issues

    By Superlazyrunner
    Being the token woman with “Daddy Issues” this book spoke to me at levels I cannot even explain. It gently and almost playful pokes at the dark corners you don’t want anyone to see and reminds you to share those hurts with our God. This book is encouraging, relatable, and challenging all at once. Must read!
  • the medicine I needed

    By Haha08
    I went to Barnes and Noble with my sister so that she could buy her school textbook. While I waited for her, I came across this book. I was drawn to it merely because of the title - and the cute outfit the model wore on the cover. I was feeling impatient and depressed at the time and when I picked up the book, I opened to page that read “Jesus doesn’t participate in the rate race. He’s into the slower rhythms of life.” And that just about did it for me. Thank you, thank you.
  • My thoughts

    By SarahParvin
    A girlfriend shared this book with me and I ordered it on Amazon Prime. I sampled an excerpt and decided that I couldn’t wait for the 2 day shipping and downloaded it on IBooks. I read it cover to cover in 24 hours. To say that there was a Word or message for me in Lysa’s writings would be an understatement. God knew I needed to read this. I can’t put into words the way this book loosened my pain from rejection and loneliness. Healing started. I would put this book in the hands of any woman I know.
