Such a fantastic read! And it may come as a surprise to some that I'm not a parent! Just. Read. This. Book. A few pages in and you’ll start to understand how Glennon Doyle Melton's storytelling creates a palpable sense of community for anyone who is navigating life's "brutiful" moments. In Carry On, Warrior, she shares her story as she has done on her blog – with honesty, humor, sincerity and grace. Like any profound, soulful, gifted writer, she sheds light on our own experiences so that we can confront our own vulnerabilities, strengths and innate beauty with tenderness, acceptance and love.

Glennon says what every woman is thinking in a funny, honest, and uplifting way.  If I could rate it higher than 5 stars I would.  A must read for every woman, but especially the moms out there!

I have followed Glennon Doyle Melton's blog, Momastery, for a little over a year. She is funny, and supportive of all women out there parenting, loving, and just living through everything life dishes out. A girlfriend gave me the copy she'd pre-ordered. I loved Glennon's self-deprecating humor, realism, faith (and did I say humor?!) so much that I sent copies to my mom, sister, and my best friend. It is hilarious and heartwarming. I highly recommend!

I found this book right when I needed it. I think everyone should read this book. It helps people accept themselves better n to find the love inside of themselves. It doesn't matter if u are a recovering "fill in the blank" or not, a christan or pagan I think this book speaks to everyone.

All I can say is thank you for writing this. I ama mental health therapist and found this inspiring to me and for all the ladies I work with. I also worked in foster care so this has touched me in many ways.

This book was very real, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and always entertaining. The author is a little flaky, at times, but loving all of the time.

My sister gave me this book and I in turn purchased another to give to a friend. This book is a wonderful mix of thought provoking observations on how we move through life coupled with hilarious stories. I find myself thinking about parts of this book and quoting it from time to time. Its a refreshing way to look at life and to be more open with ourselves and others at the same time. Plus, I laughed out loud so often, my husband kept asking what was so funny!

I really couldn't put this book down. She speaks the truth that so many keep hidden away from the world. The book reminds me of being with all my best friends, thinking the same thoughts, and enjoying the moment it's voiced so we can all talk about it with each other.... She writes the truth; we can do hard things. ;)

I've been reading (and loving) Glennon's blog, Momastery, for over a year now. I was thrilled when she announced her book deal and have been waiting for Carry On, Warrior for what feels like forever. I'm not usually a lover of non-fiction but this book was outstanding. It made me cry several times, and as Chris Tomlin would say, "it made my heart want to sing." I love Glennon's blog, but this book was even better and really spoke to my heart. Some of the essays in the book have been previously published on her website, but much of the book is new material. And for new(ish) followers of the site, like me, it was nice to be able to read Glennon's story in order, instead of piecing it together through the blog. Glennon describes herself as a hope-spreader and truth-teller. She lives an open and honest life, and that honesty is what speaks to me. I see so much of myself in her and feel like she knows how I feel, even though she doesn't know me. She describes this as the divine inside of her speaking to and recognizing the divine in me. And I think she's exactly right. Reading this book was like hearing a bell toll: all of it rang true for me. I'm so glad I bought a hard copy of Carry On, Warrior. I want to be able to easily flip back to my favorite parts and highlight certain quotes and go back and read this book again just to savor it. I feel like Carry On, Warrior is more of a book for women, especially mothers, but I think that it would appeal to just about anyone. Highly, highly recommended!

This is a great afternoon read. Since reading this book, I find myself thinking, only God can fill my hole. It is a book of forgiveness, resilience, and faith.

I commend the author for overcoming her struggles in a positive,upbeat manner. I question the lack of any 12 step program utilized and wonder if that is correlated with 8 re-locations, just a thought from an over analytical therapist. Overall it is a fun easy read and I love the use of Namaste.

If you could hide ever deeper from life, you might uses Glennon's method of self-deprecating humor and call it 'honestly', but what you should say is, "I suck as a person." then try to change yourself. That's what Glennon does and its popular because it makes you feel like its okay to be a bad person, but it isn't. Glennon want's us to confront our inadequacies with acceptance? It is a funny joke or meme to say, "Carpe Diem? I can't seize 15 min, let alone a whole day!" But, honestly yes, you can. You are a stay at home mother with nothing else to do. People do it all the time. Get off facebook, stop being selfish with your time, and take care of your family. This book is like watching someone bang their head against the wall while saying, "Aren't I a dummy for beating my head against the wall?" Yes, yes you are. It really is no wonder why her marriage failed/nearly failed. File this book in, the (giving up on) Self Help section. Read this if you want some validation for the lack of effort you put into your marriage and family.
