With a spunky sense of unshrinking spirit, Andrea tells us her story in Unfrozen, of discovering her voice in the context of the greater dialog of life. Relating intimately to the snow queen Elsa and her sister Anna in the movie "FROZEN", she invites us to thoughtfully consider how perpetual self protection and preservation often circumvent meaningful conversations and relationships, then points the way to liberate true love. As Andrea offers her voice, her gift, to the world, her act of true love on behalf of others, she invites each of us to as well.

Unfrozen reminded me that I wasn't alone in holding back parts of myself out of fear. It reignited my courage to release my true voice and message into the world in a bigger way. What a powerful book!

From the Author
A few short years ago, I wasn't sure I could face the thoughts and feelings I feared might lurk in the deeper places of my soul. So I avoided the quiet and numbed my tender heart with distractions. But I wasn't satisfied. I was stuck, and I wanted a way out.
If that's you, then you're in the right place. I wrote this book for you.
I'm offering you the opportunity to come with me on a journey as I struggle to make sense of my identity and voice of self-expression in my relationships with God, my husband and the world. I'm extending my hand and inviting you to come along because I know that there is freedom, empowerment and abundant love waiting on the other side.
Many people find the unexpected path to be a challenging one.
With that in mind, I've created a set of free companion videos and a discussion guide to support you as you read and process your interaction with the book. If you're looking for a way to connect imagery from the movie with real-life application, these are perfect for you!
Go to andreajoywenburg.com to enter the Unfrozen Resource Center and discover what I have prepared for you. Then invite your daughter (10+), a younger woman, a small group of friends or your spouse to join you in authentic heart-level discussion.
I hope you're up for the challenge because your frozen heart is worth mining.
