Publisher's Summary

Anne Lamott meets Elizabeth Gilbert in this inspirational, side-splittingly funny exploration of the power of living with love, forgiveness, and honesty.
Glennon Melton became a sensation when her personal essays started going viral. Giving language to our universal (yet often secret) experiences, her hilarious and poignant observations were read by millions, shared among friends, discussed at water coolers, quoted in The New York Times, and have inspired a social movement.
Melton's mistakes and triumphs, recounted with candor and humor, will encourage you to forgive yourself for your own imperfections and inspire you to make the most of life's gifts. In Carry On, Warrior, Melton shares her journey from reckless college girl hooked on alcohol, drugs, bulimia, and toxic relationships to becoming a sober and devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister, and teacher. Her stories embody her need to tell and hear the truth, to be sometimes brave and sometimes silent, to say I'm sorry, to trust in something more powerful than herself, and to stop making motherhood, marriage, and friendship harder by pretending they're not hard.
Melton believes that by shedding our weapons and armor, we can stop hiding, competing, striving for the mirage of perfection, and ultimately build a better life in our hearts, homes, and communities. In this one woman trying love herself and others, readers will find a wise and witty friend who will embolden them to cut themselves a break and commit to small acts of love that can have an extraordinary impact.
Like Geneen Roth, Glennon reminds us that the journey is the reward and teaches us how to be our best selves. Like Ann Voskamp, she shows us that even doubt-filled faith changes everything. Carry On, Warrior is powerful, fresh, and life-changing.

Any additional comments?

This book has been overwhelmingly insightful for me. I have placed more bookmarks in this single book than I have in my entire Audible library combined. It is touching, funny at times, sad at times, and overall, it's real in a way that I hadn't anticipated. Listen to this book. Read this book. Some part of it will speak to you. I would also like to note that I am the LEAST religious person on the face of the earth--generally, mentions of god in literature make me cringe, but not in this book. The author talks about her relationship with god in a way that is so open and so far from judgmental that I am entirely comfortable with her frequent references.

Some beautiful insights. Some ideas she doesn't have quite right yet. But like all of us, she is a work in progress.
