God didn't design you to be a doormat.
So many women have been taught to always focus on others, turn the other cheek, or deny their own needs. We all want to give the best of ourselves to others. But, what happens when others take advantage of us? How do we care for others without letting our own needs get pushed to the back-burner?
The Best of You reveals a breakthrough strategy to find your voice, set wise limits, and still be a loving person. For over 20 years, Dr. Alison has integrated faith and psychology to help women reclaim their confidence, find their purpose, and enjoy healthy relationships. Her unique wisdom will help you answer these tough questions:
- Why do I feel stuck in the pain of my past?
- Can I learn to trust myself?
- How do I find my voice?
- When do I need to set a boundary?
- What if other people respond with anger, blame, or a guilt trip?
- How do I forge healthy relationships?
You don't have to stay stuck, overwhelmed, or defeated. The best of you is right around the corner. Discover the life that God intended for you to enjoy.

“Not only does Dr. Cook marry psychology and spirituality in a synchronized dance in The Best of You, but she does so with unpretentious simplicity—reminding us that wisdom at its best is wisdom accessible to all. She is gifted in breaking concepts down with everyday examples to help the reader feel more confident in both understanding and applying them in their daily lives. As I read The Best of You, I was struck by how it wasn’t just informative but also facilitated an experience of connecting with my own sense of self and deepening this connection."
