Truth-tellers and memoir lovers! This book giveaway is for you. The #togetherlive2017 tour in Seattle gave out free softcover versions of Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton, but I already have a copy of this fabulous memoir. I can’t wait to pass on this book to an eager reader. But how to choose among all the lovely deserving folks out there? Together Live is a revolution of truth-telling, bravery, and social action rising up across the globe. Let’s try a book giveaway that engages readers to raise their own voice!
A friend gifted me a hardcover copy of this gorgeous book. It is art all the way through. Beautifully designed inside and out. Beautifully shared story. I love the honesty and the storytelling. When I write my memoir, I want it to be this good.
I think it’s interesting that I said “I love the honesty” in the book … and that Glennon’s new partner said on stage last week that she could see right through it. I think honesty comes in waves. Even when we believe we are being our truest self in one moment, there may be a limit to how far we can go at the time. I really appreciated Glennon’s integrity when she went ahead and made the announcement (just prior to her book release) that she was leaving her marriage. Her truth had gotten even truthier at the eleventh hour, and she was super brave to reveal it. Her new love story was beautifully shared on stage at Together Live, but Love Warrior is still a wonderful memoir about love and compassion and forgiveness and moving forward.
Memoir is a small window into a slice of a person’s life. When we gain a new perspective and then look back in time, it can be hard to believe that we ever felt the way we did. But memoir takes us back there, back to the truth of what we felt in those moments at that time.
I aim to publish my own truth-telling memoir in 2018. In the meantime, you might like to read Love Warrior!
