Be inspired and empowered by Carry on, Warrior by Glennon Melton. Here's my hunch: nobody's secure, and nobody feels like she completely belongs.
Those insecurities are just job hazards of being human.
But some people dance anyway, and those people have more fun.
On my deathbed, I'm not gong to wish I had danced like JLo; I'm just going to wish I had danced more.
On Mother's Day, 2002, Glennon Melton was unmarried, addicted to drugs, booze, food and bad love.
Her criminal record had grown steadily more muddied in her desperate quest for escapism.
But by a strange twist of fate, it was on this day that she discovered she was pregnant.
After twenty years of wilful self-destruction, how could Glennon rise to the challenge of looking after the helpless, innocent child growing within her, when she couldn't even look after herself?
This is the inspiring story of Glennon Melton, the mother who, for the love of her child, was determined to change her life forever.
Carry on, Warrior is a true woman's book, which touches on the universal themes of friendship, marriage and family in a way that is unique and enlightening. Glennon Melton lives in the US with her husband Craig, her three beautiful children Chase, Tish and Amma and their two dogs.
She has an enormous following for her blog and online community momastery.com, and as a recovering alcoholic and bulimic she views writing as a form of healing.
Her charity Monkee See - Monkee Do is dedicated to helping struggling parents to provide a better life for themselves and their children.
