Become a Love Warrior In and Out of Marriage

WOW, you're in for something special on The School of Greatness today.

Years ago, when the podcast was still pretty new, I made an amazing friend, the one and only Glennon Doyle Melton.

She is the super popular blogger, author, and speaker behind the Momastery brand.

She changed my life by giving me the courage to share my own story of being raped as a kid.

So much healing and love has come into my life since then, and Glennon and I are still good friends.

"Rock bottom can be the most powerful place on Earth."  

She has been on her own journey over the past couple of years to live courageously in love.

I am so inspired by everything she has gone through and the work she does that changes lives everyday through sharing her story.

She just wrote a new book that releases this week called Love Warrior. It’s a must read for everyone.

We recorded this conversation a few months ago when she was in town and now I’m so excited to share it with you in Episode 376.

"Love is just a relentless showing up."
