Product description

Review

"An inspirational guide. Only by living in a state of loving vulnerability [was Melton able] to do what she desired most: touch others and be touched by them in return. Gentle words of wisdom from a woman driven by 'senseless, relentless hope.'"-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"Carry On Warrior is like sitting down for a cup of coffee with a friend to share stories, laughter, and tears, mixed with a whole lot of "me too!"s and "I thought I was the only one." You leave refreshed, renewed, and reminded that we aren't alone in this. Not even a little.It isn't the kind of book you put down and say "oh, that was good." It's the kind of book you put down, then go to the store and buy three more copies because you know you are going to run into someone who needs them."-- "Examiner.com"

"Every once in a while, a writer turns up who is just that special. This is definitely the case with Glennon Doyle Melton. She's a hit because everything she writes runs deep and true-and makes us laugh. Glennon's like your favorite girlfriend: game to talk about anything, unafraid to take chances, and refreshingly honest about her past and present struggles."-- "Parents.com"

"Glennon's writing is like a warm embrace. She shines that little light of hers over the whole wide mommy world, reminding us that it is OK - more than OK, our right - to be who we are, no apologies. And we as mothers matter. Because when you spend so much time focusing on everyone else's needs, you often forget that you count too."-- "Family Circle.com"

"Will melt your heart and inspire you in one fell swoop!"-- "Allparenting.com"

Refreshingly frank. Writing, or as she calls it 'living out loud, ' is for Melton a bracing therapy to chase away loneliness, learn humility, and banish the fears of revealing the less than flattering sides of herself.-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Carry On, Warrior is precisely the kind of book I hope the parents in my congregation will read. Melton is a richly gifted storyteller, and her shamelessness is the best kind, rooted in a refusal to believe that she is anything other than a forgiven and beloved child of God."--Katherine Willis Pershey, associate Pastor First Congregational Church of Western Springs Illinois "Christian Century Magazine"

"First and foremost, Melton's book is chock-a-block with great characters, and she's number one. Melton pulls this off with the help of smart, funny, plain prose."----The Agony Column "Bookotron.com"

"Glennon is...a fantastic writer and speaker -- funny, real, open, passionate, heartfelt, and inspiring. I was inspired both personally and professionally by her presence, her talent, her humility, her message and her vulnerability."--Mike Robbins "Huffington Post, Good News Blog"

"Glennon Doyle Melton is church and Carry On, Warrior reads like one of those old rollicking hymns that make you want to stand up at the end and shout, "Amen!" Life is indeed "brutiful" but Glennon's humor, warmth, and honesty are profound reminders that there is beauty in our struggle. I can't stop thinking about this book."--Brené Brown, Ph.D. "New York Times bestselling author of Daring Greatly: How the Courage to be Vulnerable Tra"
