Book Review: The Perfect You

From the Back:

There's only one you!
When God created the blueprint for the universe, you were already part of the plan. Science and Scripture show you're a unique, brilliantly designed, and intelligent individual who fills a role no one else can. So the more Perfect You you become, the more fulfilling and impactful your life will be.

What is the Perfect You? It's how you process and exhibit your uniqueness through the way you think, feel, and choose. Everything you do and experience has an impact on the world, which is why it is vital for you to understand

· what your Perfect You is
· when you are stepping out of your Perfect You
· the mental, physical, and spiritual implications of stepping out of your Perfect You
· and how to stay in your Perfect You

In this book, Dr. Caroline Leaf tackles this concept from theological, philosophical, and scientific angles, challenging you to think deeply about your identity and enabling you to apply these insights to your daily life. Drawn from thirty years of original research and twenty-five years of clinical experience, The Perfect You includes groundbreaking new insights and an eye-opening questionnaire designed to help you understand your Perfect You.

Are you tired of living in a suffocating box of expectations? The Perfect You will help you realize there was never a box to begin with!
My Reflections:
Ever have a book cross your path exactly when you need it, Yes this one was it. 
I love how God works! 
In "The Perfect You" you will find a harmonious blend of science and faith. 
Dr leaf invites her readers on a journey of self-discovery. 
Who has God created you to be when he knit you together in your mother's womb?

I have been a follower of Dr. Caroline Leaf since I read her book "Switch on Your Brain"
Dr. Leaf's expertise in brain science shines throughout this book. Leaf clearly lays out the brain's function, the philosophy and the science behind the unique ways we function. She weaves in how God created us each uniquely and perfectly formed. How we think is directly linked to how we feel, which often times is warped and just plain wrong. The deceiver wants to shatter our joy. God has the perfect plan for our lives. He already knows. Quote from the book:

"The Perfect you is how you uniquely and specifically feel, and how you uniquely and specifically choose. Our thinking is designed to reflect his image since we have the mind of Christ"

This is a very heavy book, don't expect to sit down read it over and have it all sorted in one go. Caroline Leaf has been studying the human brain for the entirety of her career.
There is a lot of information to get through in this book, but your effort is absolutely worth every minute. I love to unravel human nature, why we think certain ways and the outcomes of negative and positive habits. I find this stuff insanely intriguing!
