Embracing My Unfinished Life

Self doubt has been a constant companion throughout my life, yet in the background lived my mother’s proclamation that I could do and be anything. One day, my story began to reveal itself to me, and I decided to write a book.

I realized that many times, I didn't listen to what my body knew. I overlooked subtle and not-so-subtle flags and ignored my uneasiness about a situation. I let my optimism avoid the truth; my inner wisdom.


There are many reasons for this that I am now aware of, like the fear of losing something, living in uncertainty, or feeling a sense of responsibility to others. I am more conscious now than ever. 


Unfinished: Unlock Your Superpowers, Live with Purpose, and Discover Limitless Possibilities

Unfinished is a book about accepting yourself and your ongoing journey in life, minimizing your own and others expectations of you, and exploring ways to bring your unique Self and powers to life. This book is for those of you who have ever doubted yourself, over-adapted to others, compromised what was important to you, and brushed aside your genuine self to fit it.


Unfinished will prompt you to reconnect with yourself, rediscover your purpose and see and experience limitless possibilities. This book is a judgment-free zone and is filled with the author's personal stories and simple actions that will ignite courage and a desire to more fully engage in your life in progress.

Thank you to The Willow Bookstore in Perham, MN and Greta, the bookstore's new owner, for including Unfinished in her collection of books for sale! If you're in the area stop in and check it out.

What readers are saying about Unfinished

Schindler weaves together a wealth of practical insights from her own life experiences and writes with sensitivity and vulnerability, making an instant connection with the reader.

I loved how this book was written like the author was having a conversation with me over a cup of coffee - it was so informative and reflective without preaching. 

There are self-help books, and then there is Unfinished by Christine Lukovich Schindler. I wouldn’t say that this is a book that you cannot put down, but rather, it is a book that you don’t want to put down.

My Book & Story

Learn more about Unfinished by listening to a recent conversation with Phil Geryshak. Phil is a sales expert, author of several books, and just an incredible human. Very early on in my career, Phil and I worked together. I worked in human resources and he worked in the IT department (he still remembers my extension!). It's amazing to know someone for twenty-five years and get reconnected through our talents and passions that have come to life outside of the work environment. Despite my tech issues, it was a really fun conversation with an authentic person and friend.

Dr. Deb Lukovich also invited me to be a guest on her podcast called Dose of Depth. Dr. Deb is a depth psychologist and coach and has a passion for inspiring people to find deeper meaning in ordinary life events by learning the language of the unconscious. She has also written several books and is currently working on her memoir. This was my first podcast experience. Also, Deb is my sister so you might enjoy the sibling dynamic while listening.
