According to Clennon Melton, its creator, her "Momastery" blog gained it name because, in her view, motherhood is a kind of monastery: "It's a sacred place, apart from the world, where a seeker can figure out what matters and catch glimpses of God. It's also like being pecked to death by merciless chickens." In Melton's memoir Carry On, Warrior, we gain extended glimpses of both worlds; incandescent mother-child moments and the endless, exhausting days when nothing seems to go right. Along the way, our self-admitted less than intrepid confesses to suffering and recovering from alcoholism, bulimia, smoking, a shopping obsession, and periodic outbreaks of self-loathing. Mothers will relate instantly to Melton's dilemmas and triumphs; for the rest of us, it will be a very welcome education.
