The Mary Marantz Show

Oct 4, 2022

What do you want (anyone thinking about The Notebook scene here?!)? 

Or better yet, when was the last time you asked yourself that question? 

In today’s episode, Mary chats with Dr. Alison Cook - therapist and author of the new book “Best of You: Break Free from Painful Patterns, Mend Your Past, and Discover Your True Self in God.” 

They discuss what exactly it is that contributes to the suppression of wants; things like:

  • Childhood wounds
  • Confusing church messages
  • Cultural conditioning towards women and their wants


So maybe the question isn’t “Am I being selfish?” after all.

Maybe the question is “How can I love myself more in order to love others more? How can I love myself in order to be more like Jesus?” Listen and be encouraged by her wisdom!
