In her most revealing and powerful memoir yet, the activist, speaker, bestselling author, and “patron saint of female empowerment” (People) explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet others’ expectations and start trusting the voice deep within us.
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY O: The Oprah Magazine • The Washington Post • Cosmopolitan • Marie Claire • Bloomberg • Parade • “Untamed will liberate women—emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray Love
This is how you find yourself.
There is a voice of longing inside each woman. We strive so mightily to be good: good partners, daughters, mothers, employees, and friends. We hope all this striving will make us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us feeling weary, stuck, overwhelmed, and underwhelmed. We look at our lives and wonder: Wasn’t it all supposed to be more beautiful than this? We quickly silence that question, telling ourselves to be grateful, hiding our discontent—even from ourselves.
For many years, Glennon Doyle denied her own discontent. Then, while speaking at a conference, she looked at a woman across the room and fell instantly in love. Three words flooded her mind: There She Is. At first, Glennon assumed these words came to her from on high. But she soon realized they had come to her from within. This was her own voice—the one she had buried beneath decades of numbing addictions, cultural conditioning, and institutional allegiances. This was the voice of the girl she had been before the world told her who to be. Glennon decided to quit abandoning herself and to instead abandon the world’s expectations of her. She quit being good so she could be free. She quit pleasing and started living.
Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family, and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each member’s ability to bring her full self to the table. And it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts so that we become women who can finally look at ourselves and say: There She Is.
Untamed shows us how to be brave. As Glennon insists: The braver we are, the luckier we get.
The Newest Oprah Book Club 2016 Selection
The highly anticipated new memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle Melton tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage.
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. A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, Glennon found that rock bottom was a familiar place. In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life.
Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on. This astonishing memoir reveals how our ideals of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for a man and a woman to truly know one another—and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything they've been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, commit to living true—true to themselves and to each other.
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. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.
The inspiring and hilarious instant New York Times bestseller from the beloved writer, speaker, activist, and founder of Momastery, whose memoir Love Warrior was an Oprah’s Book Club selection.
Glennon Doyle’s hilarious and poignant reflections on our universal (yet often secret) experiences have inspired a social movement by reminding women that they’re not alone. In Carry On, Warrior, she shares her personal story in moving, refreshing, and laugh-out-loud new essays and some of the best-loved material from Momastery. Her writing invites us to believe in ourselves, to be brave and kind, to let go of the idea of perfection, and to stop making motherhood, marriage, and friendship harder by pretending they’re not hard. In this one woman’s attempt to love herself and others, readers will find a wise and witty friend who shows that we can build better lives in our hearts, homes, and communities.
Churches in America are experiencing an unprecedented fracturing due to their belief and attitude toward the LGBTQ community. Armed with only six passages in the Bible--often known as the "clobber passages"--the traditional Christian position has been one that stands against the full inclusion of our LGBTQ brothers and sisters. Unclobber reexamines each of those frequently quoted passages of Scripture, alternating with author Colby Martin's own story of being fired from an evangelical megachurch when they discovered his stance on sexuality.
UnClobber reexamines what the Bible says (and does not say) about homosexuality in such a way that breathes fresh life into outdated and inaccurate assumptions and interpretations.
Qualquer mulher tem uma ânsia dentro de si. Empenhamo-nos ao limite em ser boas: boas mães, boas filhas, boas companheiras, boas cidadãs, boas amigas. Acreditamos que todo este empenho nos fará sentir vivas. Em vez disso, deixa-nos desgastadas, presas, saturadas e desiludidas. Olhamos para as nossas vidas, as nossas relações, o nosso mundo, e perguntamos a nós mesmas: Não era suposto que tudo fosse mais deslumbrante do que isto?
Há quatro anos, Glennon Doyle – autora, ativista e filantropa, esposa e mãe de três – preparava-se para dar uma conferência quando uma mulher entrou na sala. Glennon olhou para ela e foi amor à primeira vista. Três palavras inundaram-lhe o pensa- mento: Ali Está Ela. Ao início, Glennon assumiu que estas palavras lhe chegavam vindas de uma instância superior. Mas depressa compreendeu que lhe chegavam de dentro.
Glennon estava por fim a ouvir a sua própria voz: a voz que fora silenciada por décadas de condicionamento cultural, vícios entorpecentes e lealdades institucionais. Jurou não voltar a abandonar-se e decidiu construir uma vida própria, baseada nos seus desejos, intuições e imaginação. Glennon iria reivindicar a sua autêntica e indomada individualidade.
«Estou tão pronta para mim mesma depois desta leitura! É como se tivesse voado para o meu corpo pela primeira vez! Uau! Qualquer uma que tenha a capacidade de realmente se deixar ir e mergulhar em si própria com o desejo de se segurar à vida: leia este livro.» Adele
«Uma perceção incrível do que significa ser mulher nos dias de hoje.» Reese Witherspoon
Um marido lindo e atencioso, filhos encantadores, o reconhecimento pelo sucesso profissional. O que mais Glennon poderia querer? A resposta é: mais, muito mais. Ela queria não ter tantas dúvidas, queria se comunicar melhor com o marido, queria apagar de sua história a bulimia e o alcoolismo, queria se encaixar nos padrões... queria que o marido não a tivesse traído e que o casamento não tivesse se revelado uma tábua de salvação tão fracassada.
Mas o que parece a maior das tragédias, acaba se tornando a grande chance de Glennon. A crise conjugal traz à tona seus velhos demônios e a obriga, pela primeira vez, a encarar francamente as questões que antes foram apenas sublimadas. Enquanto todos cobram dela uma decisão sobre o possível divórcio, Glennon se volta para si mesma em busca da própria voz: não a da jovem perfeita que ela um dia quis ser, não a da esposa cujo relacionamento fracassou, não a da mãe abnegada, mas, sim, a voz da mulher de verdade que sempre existiu por trás de todos esses papéis.
Glennon Doyle Melton é a mulher que talvez você conheça, a vizinha, a colega, a irmã de um amigo. Talvez seja você. Somos guerreiras revela não só a história de Glennon, mas a guerra diária travada pela mulher que busca simplesmente ser quem ela é — um relato corajoso que chama a atenção para o fato de que nascer mulher e existir plenamente é quase um ato revolucionário.
Glennon Doyle zeigt uns, was Großes geschieht, wenn Frauen aufhören, sich selbst zu vernachlässigen, um den an sie gestellten Erwartungen gerecht zu werden, und anfangen, auf sich selbst zu vertrauen. Wenn sie auf ihr Leben schauen und erkennen: Das bin ich. Ungezähmt.
In ihrem Blog schrieb sie über ihre Gefühlswelt. Das sprach sich herum, und der Blog verzeichnete mehr und mehr Zugriffe, wurde schließlich zu einer kleinen Internet-Sensation. Ihre urkomischen und doch ergreifenden Gedanken über das Leben werden inzwischen von Millionen gelesen.
