About this deal

I spent many years living as an “accidental” expat before becoming more intentional about my own global life. I want my clients to read Love Warrior because I want them to trust that when this journey towards healing gets difficult, they’re exactly where they need to be, and that it’s only a temporary place. 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.

It will be a hard road to send it out there and many will misunderstand or minimize or explain it away but the pain will be worth it because this writing is a giant battle cry of surrender. But it doesn’t spare any details on just how difficult of a process it can be to learn to reconnect with yourself.But then Melton’s name popped up as a speaker in the latest Belong Tour, accompanied by other familiar names such as Jen Hatmaker, Shauna Niequist, and Nichole Nordeman. I understand that being cheated on sucks, but creating a living record of you bad-mouthing their dad during a rough patch in your marriage for millions to read about for all posterity can’t be a healthy way to deal with your anger. After she gets married, sobers up and starts a family, the news of her husband’s betrayal, when it comes, is overwhelming: “He looks away from me and starts talking. But this book was just released in September and she is already pronouncing her love for another woman.

An incredible, dark, poignant, vulnerable personal account about surviving rock bottom and finding a better life. As I pass them in the hallway, I practice carrying myself in a way that announces: I am available to play the game now.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. Listening to such a warm and emotionally intelligent author is a worthy investment in a course on difficult conversations.

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. I had no idea of its connection to Oprah’s Book Club either, as that info was not in the e-book edition I read. It’s ironic that the time in our lives when we need our support the most, we tend to abandon ourselves. Where Untamed seems like the sequel to this work, Love Warrior sets the scene, and by the end, its clear that Glennon is still struggling to reach any clarity or conclusion about what went wrong with her marriage. My daughter was asking: How will I survive being this particular type of person in this particular type of world?

I stop and look back at them and I feel frightened by how small they seem huddled together in the cold, white, fluorescent hallway. Glennon is a sought-after public speaker, and her work has been featured on The TODAY Show, The Talk , OWN, and NPR; in The New York Times , Ladies’ Home Journal, Glamour , Family Circle , Parents Magazine, Newsweek , Woman’s Day , and The Huffington Post ; and in other television and print outlets. I’m torn because while there are so many thoughtful, penetrating conversations we can have about this book, it ends with a church, and claims about God, his Word, man, and the gospel. Now, when someone asks me why I cry so often, I say, “For the same reason I laugh so often—because I’m paying attention. 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.
