"Melton writes about spirituality, faith, creativity, and compassion without once surrendering her hilarious and hard-knocks identity." (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of BIG MAGIC)
“In Carry On, Warrior, Glennon Melton’s honesty, thoughtfulness, and humor will keep readers racing through the pages—and set them thinking more deeply about their own lives.” (Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project and Happier at Home)
“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)
“CarryOn, Warrior is a fierce, outrageous and laugh-out-loud book about emergingfrom addiction and living life at full-tilt.” (Geneen Roth, author of Women, Food and God)
“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, and permission to do it allimperfectly. Carry On, Warrior takes its place among the best ofspiritual memoirs as the kind of book readers will want to return to again andagain. It reads like a conversation with a close friend, but impacts theheart like an encounter with the divine.” (Rachel Held Evans, author of Evolving in Monkey Town and a Year of Biblical Womanhood)
“An inspirational guide. Only by living in a state of loving vulnerability [was Melton able] to do what she desired most: touch others and be touched by them in return. Gentle words of wisdom from a woman driven by 'senseless, relentless hope.'” (Kirkus Reviews)
"Refreshingly frank. Writing, or as she calls it 'living out loud,' is for Melton a bracing therapy to chase away loneliness, learn humility, and banish the fears of revealing the less than flattering sides of herself." (Publishers Weekly)
“Glennon Doyle Melton is church and Carry On, Warrior reads like one of those old rollicking hymns that make you want to stand up at the end and shout, “Amen!” Life is indeed “brutiful” but Glennon’s humor, warmth, and honesty are profound reminders that there is beauty in our struggle. I can’t stop thinking about this book.” (Brené Brown, Ph.D. New York Times bestselling author of Daring Greatly: How the Courage to be Vulnerable Tra)
“First and foremost, Melton's book is chock-a-block with great characters, and she's number one. Melton pulls this off with the help of smart, funny, plain prose.”— (The Agony Column Bookotron.com)
“Carry On Warrior is like sitting down for a cup of coffee with a friend to share stories, laughter, and tears, mixed with a whole lot of “me too!”s and “I thought I was the only one.” You leave refreshed, renewed, and reminded that we aren't alone in this. Not even a little.It isn't the kind of book you put down and say “oh, that was good.” It’s the kind of book you put down, then go to the store and buy three more copies because you know you are going to run into someone who needs them.” (Examiner.com)

This is not just a book about the author. When I was reading this, I could relate to almost every story in this. I found myself smiling most of the time and agreeing with her that, yep, I've been in this or that position before and I wish I had to say what she said. It comes with courage and belief in yourself, from within and eventually we will let the courage speak out for ourselves.
If you like motivational books, this really is 'the' best book I've read thus far on self-esteem and self-reflection. I hope you too enjoy it and learn to embrace life. I will need to refer to this book many times I'm sure.
