Description


You’ve checked all the boxes. You’ve followed all the rules.
 
But something has still gone terribly wrong.
 
This is where Wendi Nunnery—Jesus follower, college graduate, and newlywed—found herself eleven years ago. After years of meeting all the expectations set for a “good” Christian girl, she was suddenly spiraling into an unknown terror she would later discover was Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and questioning everything she’d ever known about herself and about God.
 
It took nearly a decade, but eventually Wendi learned her value was fixed. Finished. Holy. And it’s in the pages of this book where she lays out the story of how and invites you to come along, find a friend, and realize you are not alone in your wandering.

Driven by thoughtful, poignant essays with just the right amount of colorful language, Good Enough tackles the lie that we are required to be perfect in order to be good and, most importantly, reveals the truth about how much we’ve already been given.
 

About the Author


Wendi Nunnery is the author of multiple novels, a devotional, and Good Enough: Learning to Let Go of Perfect for the Sake of Holy. She is the host of the highly-rated Sooo OCD Podcast and her work has appeared in national publications like The Huffington Post and SUSIE Magazine, as well as a number of popular lifestyle blogs. Born and raised in small town Georgia, Wendi now lives in Atlanta with her husband of eleven years and their two awesome kiddos.

Praise For…


“As a serial perfectionist, I've spent years trying to do enough, say enough, be enough, and perform enough to prove I am worthy of admiration and love. The rule-following and addiction to achievement is exhausting, which is why I'm so grateful to Wendi Nunnery for providing an escape route. Good Enough gives readers permission to stop striving for perfection and start living with holiness in view. If you're like me, you need this message.” —Jonathan Merritt, author, Learning to Speak God from Scratch

“Good Enough
 is filled to the brim with hope. Wendi tells her story with a vulnerability and grace that brought me to tears more than once. This book invites us to stop striving to reach some unattainable level of godliness and instead see ourselves through God's eyes—with compassion and more love than we could ever imagine. As someone who struggles with anxiety and panic, I found reading Wendi's words to be deeply refreshing and comforting—like a cup of hot coffee on a freezing winter morning.” —Lauren Casper, author of Loving Well in a Broken World 

In Good Enough, Wendi Nunnery offers freedom to women everywhere who have spent too much time striving to please God and not enough time resting in what He has already done for us. In a world that tells us all the ways we will never measure up, Good Enough is a refreshing glass of water for those who have exhausted themselves doing everything but resting in God's promises and love. With vulnerability and passion, Wendi reminds us that God wants so much more for us than striving to be perfect.” —Taylor Schumann, author and activist 

These words from Wendi are the very ones I most needed to hear. As a recovering perfectionist myself, I am so grateful for her gentle and open-hearted invitation into holiness over perfection, into belovedness over brokenness. Her willingness to go first and share her story (of faith, of motherhood, of mental battles, of marriage, and more) gave me the freedom to explore more of my own evolving story, and I am confident that readers will experience the same gift in her words. Hearing Wendi's reminder that God's banner over me says 'Good. Holy. Beloved. Called.' helped me remember what is true, and I will cling to that.” —Rachel Dawson, writer, popular bookstagrammer, and host of The RAD Podcast
