Allie Beth Stuckey joins us for a conversation about her new book, "You're Not Enough (And That's Okay): Escaping the Toxic Culture of Self-Love." One of the most ubiquitous tenets of modern culture - preached by Instagram influencers and self-help gurus alike - is that the key to happiness is within you. All you have to do is find it. But is this quest to love yourself more actually making you miserable? Allie examines how trendy narcissism is harming individuals and society, and what we can do to overcome the trap of self-love. Allie Beth Stuckey is host of the Blaze Media podcast Relatable, where she tackles theological, cultural and political issues from a conservative, Reformed perspective. Stuckey speaks to college students, Republican organizations, Christian ministries, and businesses across the country about the importance of biblical and conservative values. She also offers frequent commentary on Fox News. Follow her on Twitter at @conservmillen.
