A few years ago, my friend Adam connected me with someone and said, “You two really have to know each other…”

Blind intros can be awkward. But I trust Adam and, must say, he was right. This woman is powerhouse of bravery, transparency and most of all — love.

As I’ve gotten to know her, I’ve discovered she’s unwavering in her commitment to tell her truth, especially when it’s uncomfortable. Even more so when it’s painfully inconvenient.

Earlier this year, I was honored to join forces with her and others as part of The Compassion Collective. (We’re coming back with another campaign this holiday season — stay tuned!)

Today, I’m delighted to introduce you to my friend Glennon Doyle Melton.

You can’t have the beautiful parts of life and not have the brutal parts. @Momastery

In this episode, you’ll learn how Glennon — the writer, mother and social activist behind the wildly popular blog Momastery — was just beginning to feel like life was finally on track when her husband revealed his infidelity and shattered the world as she knew it.

It’s all a part of our conversation and her fantastic new book Love Warrior. Her memoir is a heart-wrenching exploration on how to use crisis as a springboard to a more true you and a more truthful life.

Speaking of truthful, Glennon recently announced that she and Craig are separating. Which, when you’re releasing a book about marriage, is not an easy or comfortable thing to do.

But Glennon is brave and transparent to the core, as you’re about to hear. We cover all the bases in this episode: God, sex, vulnerability, food, intimacy, drugs, writing, heartbreak, trust, forgiveness and ultimately love.

Once you’ve had a chance to watch, we’d love to know. What’s the most important insight you’re taking away from this conversation?

Share as much detail as possible in your reply. Thousands of incredible souls come here each week for insight and inspiration and your story may help someone else have a meaningful breakthrough.

Though the vast majority of our community already operates this way, I do ask for you to be extra respectful, kind and compassionate in your responses. While Glennon was open about her recent separation, her ever evolving journey is not an open invitation for judgment, cynicism or snark.

If you’ve spent any time around these parts, then you know I take a strong stand for kindness here at our beloved little corner of the internet.

Important: share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be deleted as they come across as spammy.

Thank you, as always for watching, sharing and allowing me to be a part of your world. You’re a bright spot in my week!

With all my love,
