"Love Warrior" Glennon Doyle Melton Names Her Favorite Books of 2016



Amazon Book ReviewDon't we all have a warrior inside us somewhere? Glennon Doyle Melton's legion of fans absorbed her soul-scraping but witty memoir Carry On, Warrior in 2012. Now Glennon Doyle Melton has a new book, Love Warrior, that bares the pain of a marriage rent by infidelity and her rocky path toward authenticity and healing.

Books—and their authors—can be sources of deep inspiration. Here are three books that inspired Melton during this past year, told in her own words:

 

CommonwealthCommonwealth by Ann Patchett - Ann Patchett. You can't go wrong with Ann Patchett. Truth and Beauty is still my all-time favorite and every book of Ann's since then has slayed me. Commonwealth is no exception. It's about family and writing and truth and secrets and messy redemption. I couldn't have asked for a better read while I was preparing to release Love Warrior to the world.

 

 

ForwardForward by Abby Wambach - Abby's already one of our country's favorite heroes and we didn't even know the half of it. Forward is the story of all that Abby overcame off the field, and her honesty about her pain is surprising, refreshing, and inspiring. Abby is my favorite kind of hero: flawed, unashamed—and she uses her pain to serve others. Forward will transform Abby's fans from believers in her to believers in themselves. 

 

 

Diana HerselfDiana, Herself: An Allegory of Awakening by Martha Beck - I read this one with my mouth hanging open. I have sensed a rising in women all over the country—a collective gathering of feminine power, healing and leadership—and this rising is embodied in Diana. Martha is one of my favorite teachers on Earth and this book is my favorite offering from her. Diana will get women's hearts pounding and feet moving.
