An inspirational, sidesplittingly funny exploration of the power of living with love, forgiveness, and honesty.

In Carry On, Warrior, Glennon Doyle Melton shares new stories and the best-loved material from She recounts her mistakes and triumphs with candor and humor, and gives language to our universal (yet often secret) experiences. She believes that by shedding our armor, we can stop hiding, competing, striving for the mirage of perfection, and making motherhood, marriage, and friendship harder by pretending they’re not hard. In this one woman trying to love herself and others, readers find a wise and witty friend who will inspire them to forgive their own imperfections, make the most of their gifts, and commit to small acts of love that will change the world.

 Carry On, Warrior features new material and selections from

Carry On, Warrior is a fierce, outrageous and laugh-out-loud book about emerging from addiction and living life at full-tilt.”–Geneen Roth, author of Women, Food and God

“Glennon embodies all that we want to be and fear we are not: she is authentic, funny, wise, loving, and resilient in the face of extraordinary challenges. But the magic of Carry On, Warrior is that by the time you finish the book, you realize you ARE all those things, and more. It is a book that actually makes you feel that you are loved and cherished. Has a book ever accomplished anything more marvelous than that?”–Vanessa Diffenbaugh, author of The Language of Flowers

“Funny, honest, and brave, Glennon Melton joins the ranks of Anne Lamott, Sara Miles, and Barbara Brown Taylor by giving her readers a precious gift: permission–permission to doubt, permission to believe, permission to struggle, permission to laugh, permission to tell the truth, permission to do it all imperfectly. Carry On, Warrior takes its place among the best of spiritual memoirs as the kind of book readers will want to return to again and again. It reads like a conversation with a close friend, but impacts the heart like an encounter with the divine.”–Rachel Held Evans, author of Evolving in Monkey Town and A Year of Biblical Womanhood
