Photo by: Little Moon Photography Moms connect deeply with Glennon’s contagious sense of humor and gut wrenching honesty. Inspired by her vulnerability, creativity, and her refreshingly optimistic outlook on faith, parenting, and marriage, women of all ages are encouraged to embrace their own stories in order to better love themselves and others. -Martha About the Author: Glennon Doyle Melton is the founder of Momastery.com and a regular contributor to The Huffington Post. She lives in Naples, Florida, with her husband, three children, and two beloved dogs. Book: 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. On the pages of 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. What: Glennon Melton will discuss and sign her book, Carry On, Warrior.
