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!

"Laurie and I highly recommend this life-changing book, which will help you discover who you are--your Perfect You--and give you a blueprint for pursuing your God-given identity."

Matt and Laurie Crouch, TBN

"Dr. Caroline Leaf achieved the near-impossible with her latest book. She delved deep into complex theories of theology, philosophy, and science, then deconstructed these highly abstract concepts and synthesized them into an innovative, creative, and enriching Christian-based book on self-discovery! Her Unique Qualitative Assessment tool and practical exercises will empower readers to find and celebrate their own unique and perfect selves in today's fast-changing world. My journey through the book left me in awe of her talent and excited to begin the voyage of discovering not only of my own uniquely perfect self but also the perfect other in the individuals around me. Every reader will be strengthened by revisiting their perceptions using her guiding principles, developing a revised view of their unique selves, and staying true to their own perfect selves in their everyday lives. This latest addition to Dr. Leaf's growing list of books is also testimony to the perfect uniqueness of Dr. Leaf herself."

Dr. Caroline Leaf is such a pioneer in the field of the mind. She has God-given insight into the composition of our minds, what make us unique, and how we can operate successfully in our uniqueness. This book fashions a profound mix of quantum physics, philosophy, and psychology into effective, practical applications to help every one of us excel in what we have been created by God to accomplish."

Dr. Peter Amua-Quarshie, MD, neuroscientist and assistant professor

"As an endocrinologist I find Dr. Caroline Leaf's books very detailed yet very easy to read. What makes you be who you really are? And how can you achieve The Perfect You as we all strive to maintain and restore health? I was so excited to read Dr. Leaf's skillful explanations of discoveries made in the medical, psychological, and quantum physics fields in the last thirty years in this new book. She fosters proactive steps you can take to change your health and your life. The Perfect You checklist is an amazing tool that will allow you to get to know yourself in a much deeper way and help you make changes in behavior using the chart and exercises. It will help you become the person you long to become, achieving your full potential in such a way that you can indeed feel 'fully alive' and accomplished in your professional life and your relationships but also in your 'inner self.' I encourage anyone to read this amazing book!"

"Dr. Leaf has released yet another brilliant piece of work. She masterfully details how our true identity is found when we abandon ourselves to Christ and immerse ourselves in His unrelenting love, thereby unlocking our natural gifts and talents. Christianity is not centered on rules and regulations; it is rather a journey of self-discovery that results in healthy, non-toxic actions and relationships. We often reference Dr. Leaf's work as it uses proven scientific arguments that apply the Word of God to our lives. We recommend this book to anyone looking to discover their purpose in life and ready to embark on a journey of true self-discovery."
