Carry On

For years Glennon Doyle Melton built a wall between herself and others, hiding inside a bunker of secrets and shame. But one day everything changed: Glennon woke up to life, committing herself to living out loud and giving language to our universal (yet often secret) experiences. She became a sensation when her personal essays started going viral. Her hilarious and poignant observations have been read by millions, shared among friends, discussed at water coolers, and have now inspired a social movement…….

 

About a week ago a great friend of mine (Allison) suggested that I read this book, one that she read and loved! Then Allison said something that stuck with me…..she said Glennon was a “Truth-Teller” like me?!# Truth-Teller……..hmm…..I have never heard my “Shameless confessions” on here described like that…..AND I love it!
Now back to the book! This book is as much about her children as it is about her past and even though I don’t have kids this book was so relatable! I saw so much of myself in Glennon and the way she goes about sharing her life really struck a cord with me! I loved the way this book made me laugh, I loved the way she shared her views (all which I share) and I loved her honesty. I read this is 3 days because I didn’t want to put it down and since finishing this book I am now following her blog/community Momastery! You can check it out HERE!
If you are looking for another summer read you really should check it out! Has anyone else read this??

    I'm excited to read this. I'm also going to read a book called The In-Between. I think it will help me in my current situation.
