#1 New York Times Bestseller Oprah's Bookclub 2016 Selection "Riveting...a worthy investment...this book has real wisdom." —New York Times Book Review "A book with so much painful truth packed into its pages that every person who’s ever married or plans to marry should really give it a read." —Chicago Tribune "Provocative....I adore her honesty, her vulnerability, and her no-nonsense wisdom, and I know you will, too." —Oprah Winfrey "This memoir isn’t really about Glennon rebuilding her relationship with her husband; it is about Glennon rebuilding her relationship with herself. Utterly refreshing and...badass." —Bustle.com The highly anticipated new memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle 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.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The world wants us to choose whether we want to be small, quiet, and uncomplicated or big, loud, and complicated. But what they don’t realize is that every girl has to make this choice: whether to be true to themselves or be true to the world. #2 I am four years old and my father is a football coach at our neighborhood high school. On game night, my mother bundles me up in a fluffy coat, earmuffs, and mittens. When she’s done, she kneels in front of me and admires her work. She is pleased. #3 I was always aware of my beauty, and I tried to be generous with it. But I understood that smart was more complicated than beautiful. I learned that people were attracted to me but repelled by my confidence. I began to understand that beauty warms people and smart cools them. #4 I’m ten years old and I’m trying to disappear into the corner of the velour couch in my grandmother’s living room. My cousins chase each other from room to room, a tornado of squeals and skin. I’m not a fish. I’m heavy and solitary and separate, like a whale.

Sacred Relationship is a practical and spiritual guide and journal for couples to rekindle the love spark that started their fires and to maintain a steady heat for years to come. Following the format of Anni Daulter’s popular Sacred Series books, it is beautifully designed and illustrated, with chapters focusing on thirty-two weeks—each with meditations and exercises on topics that couples are likely to encounter on their journey together. Husband-and-wife team Anni and Tim Daulter offer both useful tips and creative ideas for enriching life together, and the weekly encounters provide couples with helpful information and thoughtful prompts for journaling that invite both members of the couple to take an intentional look at the relationship and adopt a practice of personal reflection and soul nourishment. As anyone in a long-term relationship knows, the intense high that accompanies the beginning of love can fade over time unless the relationship receives proper care and attention. Sacred Relationship shows how intentional love brings more happiness, deeper joy, and greater fulfillment than the initial love spell and can steer each member of the couple into more profound personal growth. The book serves as a toolkit with answers to a wide variety of relationship questions and as a handbook for crafting daily practices that will raise the vibration of the relationship. Parents will find solace in topics that shed light on maintaining loving relationships, sex, and passion once children join the family. Busy couples who want to discover more about themselves and each other, find soulful solutions to everyday issues, and nourish a healthy and happy relationship year after year will find an invaluable resource in this book.

This book has been a overwhelming blessing in my life for fi ve years. On 11//2007 ,I almost died ,and thanks to God and my angels it was the most peaceful time of my life. As the doctors and nurses worry about me as they did tests after tests to save my heart. So with pills and a pacemaker I was saved by God to do these books. It is a series of seven, and this is number two to series seven. God weighed on my heart to do this book series, and as I rest in the hospital bed I study and learned that a Christian walk to becoming Christ like is easier we all think it is. Our walk to becoming Christ like isn't that hard, and we don't need to this entire crazy act's, ONLY LIVE IN LOVE AND WALK THE WALK TO CHRIST! My fi rst book was titled THE WALK TO BECOMING CHRIST LIKE subtitle THE THIRTY-TWO STAGES. It was a list of ever step Jesus did on this world ,as he walk his own walk of the fl esh. So then God taught me that my, and everyone's Christian walk is like Jesus walk! Then each moment of our walk to becoming Christ like is 100% like and simpler to our Lords fl eshly walk two thousand years ago. That is how easier our walk is, like it was for Jesus. YES THERE WILL BE ATTACK, AND TROUBLES, AND PAIN IN THAT WALK TO CHRIST, BUT TO BE CHRISTIAN IS LOVE AND A GIFT GETTING EASY AND FREE! So after reading the foundation fi rst book THE WALK TO BECOMING CHRIST LIKE subtitle THE THIRTY-TWO STAGES. God is ready me to write book two of the series to keep helping you children of God. THE WALK TO BECOMING CHRIST LIKE subtitle WHAT AFFECTS OUR WALK book keeps up with the walk to Christ, and what affects it, or blesses it. As one section is the evil twin sister's that is out to kill that walk to Christ ,and the book helps to stop them, as teaches how to manages the other subjects. I am sorry for the grammar problems; I am a 60% holy hillbilly that was a brat in school, when he should be enjoying English than science and math. Plus, being a poor disable 50 old man, I try 1000% to be a shape God tool to get these words into your hand children of God! So enjoy and be blessed!! THE WALK TO CHRIST ISN'T HARD, IT IS LIFE THAT'S IS HARD!! Thanks from a holy want to be writer doing God's plans O' Lord greatly bless these loving readers!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On Being Love's Warrior is a guide to freedom. Many of our lives have been shaped by outside forces. We are told how we should look, what we should wear, what kind of car we should drive and what kind of life we should live. If we don't match up to other people's ideas of who we should be, we are made to feel worthless and inferior on the inside. We begin to control ourselves and punish ourselves, until we can become what the church, schools, and the media tell us that we should be. You are about to take a journey, as you explore this manual, into the most frightening place...into your own psyche and into the psyche of humanity. You will learn how you have been shaped and manipulated by many of our institutions. You will see the beauty of human kind and all of the ugliness of human kind appear right before your eyes. You will learn how you have been deceived into using your power to oppress others and pass on the sickness. You will learn about real religion and spirituality. You will learn techiques that will set you free.
