Actress Andrea Logan White appeared to have a perfect Hollywood life. Beyond the red carpet, though, she struggled with the same lie that haunts many of us: "I need to be perfect in order to be accepted--by God, by others, by myself."
In Perfectly Unfinished, Andrea tells her story of being an anorexic teenager, a Playboy Mansion guest hanging out by the pool, a naive new Christian, an idealistic bride, and a stressed-out mom--and how all along, God was fulfilling his promise to complete his good work in her. As Andrea writes, "We can learn to see our unfinished places as spotlights on where God is still at work."
If you struggle with a self-condemning voice that tells you only perfection will do, you will find grace and encouragement in Andrea's words. Perfectly Unfinished is an invitation to the wondrous mystery of God's abundant love as the incompleteness of our lives brings us even closer to him.

Andrea Logan White appeared to be living the "American dream" or what many would call a "perfect life." However, underneath the happy veneer of the model, actress, and producer, was a subtle, caustic voice leading to emptiness and self-destruction. She was being crushed under the weight of her own drive for "perfection." Andreas remarkable (and often tabloid-worthy) journey that took her from hanging out in the Playboy mansion to finding God at a stop light on Hollywood Boulevard is a page-turner, but it is not the whole story.
Even discovering Jesus, finding an amazing husband, having beautiful children, and embarking on an exciting career didnt hold the "happily ever after" Hollywood ending Andrea had envisioned. No matter how successful, how spiritual, how loved, she was still enslaved by a lie the Enemy uses against many of us: she felt she needed to be "perfect" to be accepted by herself, by others, and by God.
Andrea shares her struggle with life-threatening eating disorders and self-defeating thought patterns, and she reveals the beautiful discovery that Gods love meets us not in our perfection, but in the most unfinished places of our life. In Perfectly Unfinished, Andrea exposes the powerful truth that continues to change her life: God loves us just as we are, just where we are; for it is in the midst of our brokenness and imperfections that Jesus is at work completing us so that we may share fully in his holiness.
Alongside Andrea, readers discover from the word of God how to join God in the work he is doing in the midst of our unfinished and imperfect lives.
