What People are Saying About This

New York Times bestselling author of Rising Strong and Daring Greatly - Brene Brown

"This is a book about what it means to be human—to wrestle with love, hurt, addiction, vulnerability, intimacy, and grace. Love Warrior blew me away. We can all find pieces of our own stories reflected in Glennon's powerful words. We are so lucky to have her courage and wisdom in the world. We need this kind of truth telling if we are ever going to find our way back to each other."

New York Times bestselling author of Present Over Perfect - Shauna Niequist

"When I finished the last page of Love Warrior, I sobbed. I sobbed because I was in awe. Because I didn't want it to end. Because it made me believe more deeply in love, in humanity, in forgiveness, in God, in marriage. Glennon and Craig have invited us so far into the messy, beautiful, difficult insides of their hearts and lives, and what we find there is profoundly inspiring. This is a book that will change lives, change marriages, change the way we think and talk about what love really is."

New York Times bestselling author of A Return to Love - Marianne Williamson

"This elegant, moving memoir is about one woman's marriage but also much more than that. Glennon writes about a hunger for love that all of us feel and the only food that ultimately feeds us. She understands the unique relationship between spiritual and romantic love, and in finding one, she masters the other. Truly a wonderful book."

New York Times bestselling author of Love Wins - Rob Bell

"How can I do justice to this book? Moving and brilliant and funny and shocking and heartbreaking and inspiring, Love Warrior raises provocative questions about just what is possible for a person, a marriage, a family, a life. At the heart of this story is the insistence that we don't have to settle—we can explore our shadows, and we're not just going to survive it, but we're going to come out the other side a whole new person with new love, new hope, new strength, and maybe even a new marriage. This is a big, stunning, buoyant, honest, raw glimpse into the life of an astonishing woman, but it is also a punch in the face to anyone anywhere who believes that this is just how it is and it's not going to get any better."

Family Circle

"Glennon Doyle Melton has mastered sharing her emotional life with the world, which she does nearly daily on momastery.com. Now she lays herself bare once again in Love Warrior, chronicling her struggles and the depths of her resilience in the darkest of times. A heroic achievement."

(Oprah's Book Club 2016 selection) - Oprah Winfrey

"A testament to the power of vulnerability. Glennon shows us the clearest meaning of 'To thine own self be true.' It's as if she reached into her heart, captured the raw emotions there, and translated them into words that anyone who's ever known pain or shame—in other words, every human on the planet—can relate to. She's bravely put everything on the table for the whole world to see."

New York Times bestselling author of Big Magic and Eat Pray Love - Elizabeth Gilbert

"Love Warrior reaches a depth of truth and power and emotional gravity that is rarely seen in the world, and even more rarely spoken aloud. Glennon's story about the resurrection of her marriage (a tale of a woman daring to come into her body, and a man daring to come into his mind, and the two of them daring—with outrageous courage—to trust each other) is something beyond merely inspirational; it is epic. I think of this book as the vital, long-overdue, much-needed sister memoir to Eat Pray Love. Glennon lifts the roof off her whole house—her whole life—and examines everything, right out in the open. She has, indeed, become a Love Warrior. This book is an act of love and truth and generosity; it will change lives."

I got approximately ten pages in before I started crying. I identify with Glennon in so many ways, and particularly her early body dysmorphia. Glennon is a funny, courageous woman who writes from the deepest part of herself. This book has a permanent place in my heart!

I can't possibly explain how much I love this book. I was totally unprepared for how much it touched me. I shed several tears. I've not walked the same journey or had some of the same problems as the author, but so much of the process and feeling is universal to whatever issues each of us has. Anyone who has ever struggled with life or felt lacking, this is for you. It's open and nonjudgemental. The author puts all of her shortcomings out there. I found it so refreshing, and I respect her for everything she is. Love Warrior made me want to take better care of myself.

This is the story of self-discovery, hardship tragedy Kama truth and learning about yourself and those around you great book wonderful read.
TeresaKander More than 1 year ago
This book is my introduction to this author, and I am so glad I chose to read it. While some of it was difficult reading (I could feel her pain, disappointment, confusion), other parts were uplifting and wonderful. The author takes us along with her on a deeply personal life journey, and she does it in such a way that we can all connect with her somewhere along the way. I can relate to being sure you know what love is and how it is supposed to look and feel, and then realizing that you've only bought into what society portrays--and working to unlearn it to find a deeper, truer love.

I wad not expecting the religious undertones. However i found the message comforting and insightful. Good advice on healing relationships with yourself and others that you love.

One of those books that resonates as truth and stays with you. With heartbreaking honesty, the author describes the idea of a true self who hides and the representative self who is presented to the world, and how it derailed her life. How she found her way back, one step at a time, through a thicket of lies and confusion is both painful and joyous.

This is one of the worst things Ive ever read. Its littered with spelling and capitization errors, theres no consistent fornatting/spaceing, and nothing is explained. Im sorry that Im being so harsh, but you couldnt even spell maybe right. It doesnt even look like you tried! Please do continue, and please put some effort into your writing.
