About this deal

That summer I have an epiphany: Maybe I’ve studied schools of fish long enough to pretend to belong to one. Years later, when I become less beautiful, when I no longer have regal ringlets to pat or perfect skin to admire, when I’m no longer small and simple and precious, I wonder how I’ll ever be worthy of offering or receiving love.

Her 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. A few years ago, my husband revealed some truths about our marriage that sent me to the second rock bottom of my life and brought LOVE WARRIOR into the world. I also began reading Love Warrior with a high dose of, “here we go again…” I was incredibly skeptical. Glennon is a columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine, and was named among OWN Network's SuperSoul100 inaugural group - as one of 100 "awakened leaders who are using their voices and talent to elevate humanity," as well as one as of Family Circle's 20 Most Influential Moms of 2017.The water is only inches deep now and my thighs are spread out wide and huge and I wonder, Is there another girl in the world this massive? Glennon has reached a depth of truth and power and emotional gravity that is rarely seen in the world, and even more rarely spoken aloud.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.I tell Mary Margaret that I think the world is more than a little poisonous and that she and I were built to notice that.

Just when Glennon Doyle 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. Everything I’d learned about bodies, womanhood, power, and pain scattered upon hearing how my little girl said the word big. 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.Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring account of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. Also: I felt bad for her kids, particularly in several passages in which she’s very blunt in her feelings about their father. 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. I don’t know if this is because we just don’t care or because we are adhering to the understood but never acknowledged rules that govern high school life.
