Carrying On

A few weeks ago, I read this post on Glennon Doyle's blog, Momastery.  The post hit home for me on many levels–most impornatly (to me), she referred to God and gay people all in one breath without doing a disservice to either.

That's not really my point, though.  My point is that this woman–whose writing I had never read before a couple of weeks ago–really has a way with words.  As evidenced here:

And I don’t mean, Chase, that we would be tolerant of you and your sexuality. If our goal is to be tolerantof people who are different than we are, Chase, then we really are aiming quite low. Traffic jams are to be tolerated. People are to be celebrated.

I love this quote.  

So when her book, "Carry On, Warrior" was released and I saw that it was available on Audible, I went ahead and used my monthly credit for her book. I really wasn't sure what to expect, so I will tell you what you can expect:

Expect to be blown away. Expect to laugh hard–and then to wonder if everyone else stuck in rush hour traffic is staring at you and wondering why you're laughing so hard alone in your car–but it will be so funny, and you will not care. Also expect to cry–because life isn't all funny, and neither is this book.  If you're listening on audible like I am, expect to be hitting the bookmark button more frequently than you have with any other book you've ever listened to.  If you're reading the paper version, expect to highlight, underline, dog ear, etc.

Expect to love this book.  I truly can't recommend it enough.  It is real life with no excuses, and I hope someday that I can be half as bold as Glennon Doyle Melton.
