Publisher's Summary

The first book from the number one New York Times best-selling author of Untamed

The inspiring and hilarious instant New York Times best-seller from the beloved writer, speaker, activist, and founder of Momastery, whose memoir Love Warrior was an Oprah’s Book Club selection.

Glennon Doyle’s hilarious and poignant reflections on our universal (yet often secret) experiences have inspired a social movement by reminding women that they’re not alone. In Carry On, Warrior, she shares her personal story in moving, refreshing, and laugh-out-loud new essays and some of the best-loved material from Momastery. 

Her writing invites us to believe in ourselves, to be brave and kind, to let go of the idea of perfection, and to stop making motherhood, marriage, and friendship harder by pretending they’re not hard. 

In this one woman’s attempt to love herself and others, listeners will find a wise and witty friend who shows that we can build better lives in our hearts, homes, and communities.

Really Enjoyed It!

Great book. Loved it. Related to it. Glennon is so genuine.... authentic. I found myself binge listening. The ending was done so well, everything tired together wonderfully. Truly inspirational.

FINDING MY VOICE

It’s almost as if the noose that has been tied around my throat my entire life is slowly starting to break away and I am getting the “kick-ass” voice back that God gave me, that no one since I was a child has ever allowed me to use, Thank You Glennon!!!
This book is amazing, it stirred and strengthened every cell in my body as I worked my way through the raw truths and the determination of this author Glennon...
PS.... I too love her lady that knits ;)
And draw most of my strength from her.

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.

Poignant!

If you could sum up Carry On, Warrior in three words, what would they be?

Read This Book!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Carry On, Warrior?

When Glennon writes a letter to her son about how she and her husband would deal with his coming out as gay ... if he ever did. The blog and letter was written when her son was 10 and probably not even sure what the future held. The blog Glennon writes speak to our hipocrasy about marriage, being Christian, loving all God's creatures no matter who they decide to love.

What does Glennon Melton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She dictates her own blog, and it feels like you are spending time with Glennon. It was a real treat.

MUST READ!

I think I expected some sort of bubble-gum psychology in this book, but I was really in for a surprise. Glennon is real. She is funny, sad, hopeful, broken, and unbelievably strong. I laughed at times, cried a few times, and laughed a few more - out loud and uncontrollably! I don't want to tease even a single story, but I can say that you won't regret picking this book up. I opted for the audio version, read by Glennon, and I felt like she was right there telling her stories to me. Love, love, love this book.

Some Golden Insights

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

This book is all of the things.

It is delicious and cozy and real and honest. So very relatable. Had me in tears on several occasions. Putting truth and feelings into words. Very powerful. This is one of the only books I've read (listened to) that I can't wait to read again!

Good, but not Great

This book is good, but not great. I just finished 3 audio selections by Brene Brown and they were soooo wonderful, this one (although different) pales. (The best of Brene's was "The Power of Vulnerability" speech, fabulous!) Glennon was an ok narrator, at first I really did not like her voice and thought they should have hired a professional. The emotion in her voice sounds controlled, like she is reading instead of telling a story. I did get used to her narration. Glennon tells some deep stories I think every Mom can relate to - that's what kept me listening and they are good stories. She talks a lot about God. I am a Christian as well, but sometimes I thought it was too much and over the top. The overall theme of the book is to forgive yourself and move on, a good theme. One we all need to be reminded of since we are hardest on ourselves.

Utterly disappointed

Some authors should not read their own books. I'm trying to gleam some positive inspiration from this book but it's a struggle.
