Love Warrior
Love Warrior: A Memoir | Glennon Doyle Melton
The highly anticipated new memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle Melton tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage. Just when Glennon Doyle Melton was beginning to feel she had it all figured out--three happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller list--her husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed. A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, rock bottom was a familiar place to Glennon. In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life. Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on. This astonishing memoir reveals how internalizing our cultures standards of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for men and women to ever really know one another--and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything theyve been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, fall in love. Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring tale of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.

I probably shouldn't have read this book. I didn't really like her first one but was hopeful. Unfortunately our theology doesn't match, so I struggled listening to it.

Finished my second book which is tagged and got my steps in for the #bfc! Plan on getting my pushups in before bed. Goals met even if the movement was muddy from rain.

I‘m thankful for finding this community as it‘s challenged me to read more. I find myself choosing books over social media and that‘s a good thing. #TeamLitnFit 🔥

I‘ve always enjoyed Glennon‘s quotes but finally diving into her memoir. A fast read and overall enjoyable.

Not being known is a hurt that is unbearable. Finding one‘s authentic self is a mighty lofty goal!

Even though Doyle ultimately divorced her husband and has since remarried, that doesn‘t take away from the impact of this story. It‘s a powerful memoir of a woman choosing love over fear, choosing honesty and authenticity over pretending, choosing faith over doctrine, learning to listen and trust what is true for herself instead of continuing to believe the stories that are given to us by culture and religion. I couldn‘t stop listening.

I had a bit of a rocky start with this one because I had a hard time identifying and therefore feeling at all sympathetic towards Glennon and her life struggles. But the more I kept reading the more I was intrigued by her life and her way of dealing with the curveballs. She is brutally honest, which threw me off at first and then I came to really appreciate it. If you‘re a fan of memoirs then you should definitely pick up this book.

I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand I found it empowering and on the other I found it self indulgent. Still, I respect the author and her willingness to be honest. Perhaps it's her raw honesty that makes me uncomfortable because I know that that's 'breaking the rules'.
Keep warrior-ing on Glennon.

Read her first book and loved it. Looking forward to this second one! I

AutumnRLS I thought this book was interesting and well written. There is a lot here to unpack, especially knowing how her story continues. And I think there were many truths in this book that are applicable to many different kinds of women. If you go into it with the understanding that it's a story of a privileged woman and contextualize it, it's a lot less frustrating then it would be otherwise. 1y

Glennon Doyle Melton thought she had it all—a loving husband, three happy children, and a successful career. When she discovered that her husband was unfaithful, she went on a journey of self-discovery to heal the foundations of herself. She confronted her disconnection with her body and her struggles with alcohol and food to uncover her own strength.

I loved this and hated it in pretty equal measure. I‘d recommend it with a big grain of salt.

It‘s inspiring to read about someone hitting rock bottom and turning things around. We like to root for the underdog. I think most people see themselves as underdogs and maybe that‘s why we root for them. It‘s David and Goliath, and we‘re all David and Goliath is this thing we call life.

I know I'm in the minority on this one but this didn't really do it for me. I commend Melton for so openly sharing her life and mistakes, but it's just not something I can relate to. Her struggle is the opposite of mine...my problem is too much retreat, hers is too much rushing headlong into life. Worth the read, but not the inspirational lifechanger to me that it is to some.

This narrative non-fiction about a woman dealing with alcoholism and bulemia who becomes a mother dealing with a cheating husband broke my heart apart and put it back together again. I learned a lot about emotion all awareness and how some women view their own bodies in light of society's expectations of women's bodies. The author makes an epic journey to her soul and returns with confidence and wisdom. ♥️

When her marriage falls apart, Doyle (a blogger by trade) does the only thing she can: she writes every brutal truth with surgical precision for the world to see. Glennon speaks secrets about being a person you feel never should be voiced, but in a way which compels you to look at your own shortcomings and come to terms with them. This book tore me to pieces, but left me with a pleasant ache of hope. - Ivy

Wow. Raw and real. Glennon Doyle Melton holds back no punches. She isn't trying to sell herself in a kind light or make herself a victim. She also isn't trying to sell knowledge of a fix it solution. She isn't trying to sell anything and that is so refreshing. Her honest journey alongside her reflections are laid out for the world to bear witness and her message of beauty and love is important for all to hear.

I thought her story was compelling, but considering that it ends with her renewing her vows to her husband and like 2 years later she's married to her new wife, I can't help but wonder how much of the drama with her husband was manufactured. She already had a platform at that point...

Idk. I hope I'm wrong. As far as self-help memoirs go, it's not bad.

There was a lot I liked about this book. Some great concepts about truth and love, and I related a lot about her getting to a point in her life where she wasn't willing to betray herself ever again. A few annoyances - she is very privileged financially, and she doesn't acknowledge that, and it plays a big part in her journey. And I like Glennon's kind of God, but it did get heavy on the God talk for me toward the end.

josie281 I adore her God too as it matches mine. Completely agree with financially being privileged because I was reading thinking I WISH I could just go to a hotel in the beach for days to escape. 3y
Sace I haven't read this one, but the unacknowledged privilege in a book can turn me right off. I almost bailed in A Stranger in the Woods because of it. 3y
Krisjericho @Sace I think I was able to see past it because I follow this author, and I know how much she has grown, even since this recent book. She's a loud advocate for intersectionality, and she recently gave this talk: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_58e7f97fe4b05413bfe30f5a/amp 3y

Meh. It's nice to have a Christian Mommy Blogger that's so liberal, but there's nothing particularly earth shattering in here. And the self help aspect is pretty privileged. It ends on the idea that her marriage is on the way to salvation, but seeing as how the author is marrying a woman now, I wonder how honest it truly is.

WhatDeeReads Whoa. That's interesting. 3y
Donna_sBookMinute Hmmm. A liberal Christian. I guess that's possible these days. And as for me and my house, anything Oprah endorses calls for reading beyond the flaps and blurbs. Wonder how she spells "Christianity." 3y
