I have been reading Glennon Doyle Melton’s newest book “Love Warrior” and all I can say is OMG. I’m guessing you are supposed to finish a book before you encourage others’ to read it, but I’m almost there. Most likely before the end of the day. And I can’t wait until then to tell you about it!
You guys, this woman shares so openly and vulnerably I just can’t wrap my head around it. It’s about her journey in her marriage, but it’s so much more about her journey back to herself. The rupture in her marriage was just a catalyst into a deep excavation into herself.
“I have met myself and I am going to care for her fiercely. At least as fiercely as I care for everyone else in my life. I will not abandon, ignore, or lose myself again”.
Glennon talks about “Sistering” which is apparently a method in carpentry that supports the weak joints. By putting an extra piece of wood to each side it makes the whole stronger. This is what she encourages us to do with and for each other. Shore up each side of our “sisters” and make the whole stronger.
