Anne Lamott meets Elizabeth Gilbert in this inspirational, side-splittingly funny exploration of the power of living with love, forgiveness, and honesty.

Glennon Melton became a sensation when her personal essays started going viral. Giving language to our universal (yet often secret) experiences, her hilarious and poignant observations were read by millions, shared among friends, discussed at water coolers, quoted in The New York Times, and have inspired a social movement.

Melton’s mistakes and triumphs, recounted with candor and humor, will encourage you to forgive yourself for your own imperfections and inspire you to make the most of life’s gifts. In Carry On, Warrior, Melton shares her journey from reckless college girl hooked on alcohol, drugs, bulimia, and toxic relationships to becoming a sober and devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister and teacher. Her stories embody her need to tell and hear the truth, to be sometimes brave and sometimes silent, to say I’m sorry, to trust in something more powerful than herself, and to stop making motherhood, marriage, and friendship harder by pretending they’re not hard.

Melton believes that by shedding our weapons and armor, we can stop hiding, competing, striving for the mirage of perfection, and ultimately build a better life in our hearts, homes, and communities. In this one woman trying love herself and others, readers will find a wise and witty friend who will embolden them to cut themselves a break and commit to small acts of love that can have an extraordinary impact.

Like Geneen Roth, Glennon reminds us that the journey is the reward and teaches us how to be our best selves. Like Ann Voskamp, she shows us that even doubt-filled faith changes everything. Carry On, Warrior is powerful, fresh, and life-changing. Download and start listening now!

    Dr. Brené Brown, New York Times best-selling author of Daring Greatly: How the Courage to be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

  • “Refreshingly frank.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “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

  • “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

  • 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

  • “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
