Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

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." Andrea’s 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 didn’t 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 God’s 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.

    Reading this book was so heartwarming. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and was very comforting. We all look at celebrities thinking they have the perfect life, but what we don't see is what goes on behind the scenes of their life. We don't see the pain and anguish they may have or are going through.

    We all come from different walks of life and all have become Christians due to different circumstances and it is awesome to see how God was working in Andrea's life before she even accepting Him as her Lord and Savior and even after she accepted Him. To read all the struggles she endured in life is what makes this book real and raw. The book is very well written, no holds bard.

    It is very comforting to know that we don't have to be perfect because no matter what our flaws (and we all have them) God loves us the way we are. We are all perfectly unfinished and until He calls us home.

    Hurricane Irma has passed over a week ago. Life has slowly gotten back to normal. Our "Irmacation" has ended and all the kiddos are back in school .....

    Saturday the mail came but I didn't get a chance to look at it until Sunday. Perfectly Unfinished came in the mail. I'm not normally one to just plow through a book but in 48 hours I finished this book. Honestly, I didn't have a clue who Andrea Logan White was when I picked out the book to review. The by line of the book "Finding Beauty In The Midst of Brokenness" caught my eye. So I ordered it. If you are like me and don't know who she is, think of the movie "Moms Night Out" ... She's the one with the twins, married to the man afraid to spend a few hours alone with them and who kills mama. ;)

    This book was refreshing. It wasn't your everyday self help book. It is simply her story, from childhood to now. She bares it all honestly and very transparently. Not leaving out her flaws or failures in hopes that you will like Jesus more. She paints a very clear picture of her mistakes and failures. Habits that have weighed her down and also the hope that brought her through and sustains her even in the midst of current trials and tribulations that she still faces.

    I loved this book. Simple and thought provoking. Several lines in the book, I really need to chew more on as I try to work them out in my own walk and life. One line toward the end that hit me, also a perfectionist, is: "... perfectionism tells us a lie. It is merely a cheap veneer that tries to cover over where we fall short, and it does us no favors at all." Let that one sit for a while ... I am. Go grab this book and enjoy her story ... one that will encourage you to keep running the race set before you.
