‘You’re Not Enough (And That’s Okay)’

Allie Beth Stuckey ’14.

Allie Beth Stuckey ’14 wants to lighten women’s loads with a simple message: You don’t have to be everything. Her book “You’re Not Enough (And That’s Okay)” was released Aug. 11 by Penguin Random House.

Stuckey’s book hit shelves Aug. 11.

Stuckey, who writes and speaks about theological, cultural and political issues from a conservative, millennial perspective, said women are bombarded by “self-love gurus” with a message that everything they need is already inside them. But she said women who buy into this idea wear themselves out pursuing experiences and habits and achievements that will make them feel enough.

Stuckey challenges women to embrace a different message: While they will never be enough, God always will be, she said.

“That is good, relieving, freeing news,” she said.

Stuckey, a Dallas native, was touring colleges in the Southeast when a friend suggested she check out Furman. “I really did just immediately fall in love,” she said.

She majored in communications studies – and cast her first-ever vote in the 2012 presidential election via absentee ballot. Stuckey was the student commencement speaker for her class and vividly remembers the rush of those 4 1/2 minutes on the platform.

When she took her first job with a public relations firm in Athens, Georgia, she decided “for fun” to put together her growing interests in politics and speaking. She started by visiting sororities to talk to young women about the importance of voting.

“I felt a lot of energy in the same way I did when I was speaking on the stage at Furman,” she said.
Speaking turned into a blog. And Stuckey ultimately joined Blaze Media to host the podcast “Relatable.” She also speaks to groups across the country and offers commentary on Fox News.

“You’re Not Enough” unpacks five myths Stuckey has identified in the self-love culture. She addresses the concept of entitlement toward one’s dreams, the danger of objective truth and the notion of perfection, among other topics.
