    I really feel that I need to review this is two parts to accurately convey my feelings about this book, so I m going to start with the nitty gritty here the writing I find books written from blogs to be problematic Writing a book and writing a blog are not the same thing and, taking pieces from a blog and putting them into a book tends to be unsatisfying for me A blog post does not a chapter make I m sure there have been blogs to books that are able to avoid this misstep, but Carry On, Warrior is not one of them Melton s writing is entertaining in small doses I suppose if I had had the luxury to read one chapter of this book every couple of days I might have found it satisfying, but that was not the case While there were passages, and sometimes entire chapters, that I found entertaining, the book as a whole was just too, well, bloggy.Carry On, Warrior also fell into the chronology trap On a blog, you can follow whatever timeline your heart desires it is one of the freedoms a blog allows However, you cannot apply that same principle in a book Melton seemed to be all over the place with her chronology For exa...

    I will be honest when I originally saw this tour available, I skipped over it as soon as I saw that it was written by the creator of momastry.com Not because I have anything against the website, but because I really hate mommy bloggers I hate the my kids are my life and it s always amazing and I am so blessed by Jesus bloggers I really would like them to show up at my house when I m performing an enema on a seven year old while my five year old screams that I m not spending time with him.Like if I had a choice, I would chose an enema over Lego s.But then I agreed I would do it and hot damn, I m glad I did.Largely, my gripe about other moms is that they aren t really honest If you can t be honest with yourself that s a shame but to not be honest with the outside world is equally terrible I have, to the chagrin of my extended family, been honest on my blog to the point where it is embarrassing for them They feel upset with me and they don t understand it But you understand it, because you are maybe like me Immediately what won me was a little paragraph towards the beginning that made m...

    Goosebumps the whole time Not just because I recently had my arms waxed, but because it s just that good Raw Real Relatable Carry On, Warrior Thoughts on Life Unarmed focuses on our sameness Glennon Melton puts to ink the voice in so many of our heads Not only when it s all polite, calm and well rested, but also and importantly the jacked up, bath salts version, too She gives us permission and encouragement to have pride in our crazy Her uncanny ability to be unafraid and simultaneously entirely vulnerable, draws you in and builds you up The book has the power to make you feel normal, comfortable, and accepted for exactly whoever you are While at the same time, in her modest and unassuming way, Glennon shines light on all of the possibilities of what we each can do be Smart, kind, honest, funny, humble, emotionFULL the book is like having her right there in your hands, and all to yourself Just not in the creepy Buffalo Bill, I wanna skin you and wear you way that sounded Glen...

    I honestly don t think I ve ever read such a narcissistic book before After about 20 pages, I was already bored out of my mind with her overly written pop psychobabble I actually cringed when another reviewer compared her to Anne Lamott For one thing, Lamott can actually wr...

    I d never heard of Glennon Doyle Melton I can t believe I haven t been reading Momastary Glennon is the blogger I daren t be She lives out loud and without apology She has confidence in the person she is and the direction is going for the simple reason that she is solid in her faith in God and His Love for her Before you tune out thinking this is another religious book, let me clarify Many of her ideas on God resonate with me loud and clear Some don t but it doesn t matter What connects the loudest and clearest will connect with any person that believes in a Higher Power, regardless of religion or spiritual persuasion Except atheist, I suppose Agnostics will be filled with hope.Glennon is FUNNY I mean, truly funny She also brought me to my own epiphany when I looked her up and listened to an interview and researched her obsessively and Aaaawed all over her family and sighed all over her husband and cried all over her separation If Glennon reads this review, I am certain she will understand my stalker like behavior Glennon is an ...

    New record 13 sticky tabs to mark important sections and thoughts.and I didn t start slapping them on until 1 3rd of the way through the book Let me see if I can explain what I loved about this book Glennon Doyle Melton is everyday natural No trying to impress with her wisdom, astound with how far she has come in her recovery from drugs, alcohol and bulimia and no trying too hard to be funny Although Glennon confesses to being a Christian, she doesn t bombard the reader with her beliefs In fact, she finds little place in her life for Christian performance but a lot of room for loving others with a naturalness, not a sticky, icky look at me kind of love This was an important distinction for me, because in the beginning of the book I kept waiting for her to start preaching or pat herself on the back for her good deeds It never happened I was relieved because I don t like throwing books against walls Even though she and I come from backgrounds that are practically polar opposite, I found I could rel...

    This book is junk I can not believe people are raving about this There is no substance in this book whatsoever The writing is horrible, and the writer is completely crazy Truly this woman is nuts The near worship fol...

    I read the entire book and read it quickly However, I was left somewhat unimpressed Disclaimer is that I have only read a handful of her blog posts linked from Faceboook recommendations I have no ill will toward her as a person or the charitable work I hear about her name associated with This is a review of the actual bookas a book.Here s what I didn t like about her book It s basically like reading a bunch of blog posts But not really in order and without any specific flow SO for me as a reader, it didn t work I would have been much better off reading one chapter a day over time instead of sitting down and reading it as a book And since I don t know much about her, the out of order thing really was confusing She talks about adoption multiple places, but never in order And not having dated the chapters, I never knew what came first, what timeframe she was in, etc.I know many people get a lot of deep spiritual stuff out of it For m...

    Glennon Doyle Melton has a warm, inviting personality The reader feels this when reading her blog posts Melton is open and vulnerable these qualities are so often missing in our relationships So, I appreciate these valuable characteristics you see in her work I felt waves of emotion as I read her stories I was certainly entertained This book is a compilation of personal, self focused blog posts, but not a well written book It seems a bit concerning that while telling her stories, she so often crosses a line and sets herself up, while likely unintentionally, as a theologian Herein lies my first problem with this book Many people reading this have possibly read very little and may even have no knowledge of the God of the Bible These same people read this author s stories and adopt her glib light view of God My second concern about this book is that the author takes eternal, holy stories and makes them about her One exampl...

    3.5 starsI m struggling a bit in reviewing this becaue I really loved it for the most part but there were aspects that didn t work for me I love her overall themes of being honest, and taking ownership for your life The essays focusing on her children, husband and sister were some of the best, in my opinion The thing that fell flat for me was her focus on religion I get it that religion is a big piece of her life and her story Which is great But, for those who are not religious me , it can get to be a bit too much I m quite spiritual but I m not a Christian or a Muslim or a Buddhist, etc I get the spiritual nature of her journey and appreciate her sharing it In fact, I loved that she called out the fact that many Christians seem to forget the very teachings of Christ when they don t embrace other people whether they are good or bad But, at one point, I foudn myself sa...
