User reviews about this book
Great app. When get we get a “wish list” feature?
Heartfelt and REAL!
Glennon helped me realize that true love has to come from within before you can invite it in.
Started out great but......
By Long legion
The story started well enough, it was well written, interesting, and I was really liking it. About halfway through, it was all I could do to keep from putting it down. It was like another author took over. Boring, redundant, preachy, and self absorbed are the words that come to mind. My three star rating is generous
Wish I hadn't bought it as an iBook so I could share with EVERYONE
This book is important and relatable, everyone needs to read it. Glennon is so honest and vulnerable in her writing. I read this in less than 8 hours... not because I'm a fast reader (im not at all) but because I couldn't put it down.
This book was very touching and I would honestly recommend it to my friends.
First Review Ever!
I get asked to review apps, etc. on the regular. However, this book is by far one of the best, if not the best, that I've ever read. Her candor, vulnerability and self-examination is just amazing. Her opening up about her own struggles and successes helps others reveal their (my) own truths. Whether you're struggling or not, this is a book that every woman should read.
Perfectly timed reading
This is the kind of book you wish your younger self could have read and yet at the same time you don't know if your younger self would really get it. I am grateful for Glennon's honesty, and for me this is a perfectly timed reading. In my early 40s now, I seem to be having a fresh identity crisis and lots of doubts about who I'm supposed to be against the backdrop of what the world expects.
Glennon's fresh words on issues that women have in reconciling with themselves and with others go deep. Through Love Warrior, she takes us to and through a pain that is so familiar and then helps guide us to a new place of true grace, real faith, and a beautiful redefining of womanhood.
I needed this book right now. It is asking me to embark on my own Warrior journey. Thank you.
Self indulgent drivel
1/2 way through I could not take it any more. Glendon get over yourself. What a piece of crap.
“I just need to know if you can really know me and still love me,”
This book shares Glennon's story towards truth and vulnerability. Messy parts and all. If only we could all learn to live and love in such an honest way. Thank you for the encouragement, challenge, and honesty. You have helped me to be not afraid and remember.
Love Warriors together yet apart
I was just asked to read this book on the eve of my 49th Birthday by my mentor therapist and guide-- an angel on this planet. Jessie Rhines in Annapolis, Maryland. I'm a retired military veteran and have been grieving the loss of my fiancé and her 2 daughters for over 11 months. She and I both had issues w our past in love and in pain. As a Hurricane unnamed to me passed on my 49th birthday and as I started listening to 'Love Warrior' I broke out in tears and almost stopped listening for good. I paused-- walked to the tiny beach in my Neighborhood. I asked myself why was I afraid to continue reading as God has always been within me. As a man and suffering the loss of his family - this story has undoubtedly led me to a new fork in my journey as I search for answers from the male perspective. I returned home after 22 years of Actve Duty and Combat experience-- to a small town in Calvert County Maryland. The same conditioning and values I were taught by parents, education, peers and social marketing were all wrong. I was always actually aware something was amiss. I divorced my wife a few years after my Active Duty closed and after meeting my former fiancé. I was smitten by her the fist day I saw her. I'm very sensitive as a man. And since an early age my fight or flight MO was to run. I always believed there was another purpose or plan in my life. I have been always serving that purpose yet I have often let what others think say or do guide me. No more. Today I awoke after the first good nights rest in over a year. Because of your story , and albeit I am not a woman-- I completely related to Craig and in many other ways alsi to Glennon's perspective. I am a little a both of Craig and her combined- nevertheless I have not run, I haven't done everything right but I will give myself credit in having faith, keeping the course and my beloved I lost is Jewish. Her and her family were the first Jewish people I ever knew and not to mention head over heels in love with. I have doubted myself often but on the eve of Yom Kippur this very day. I wrote a true letter of apology from my heart and finally realised I too will never again betray my inner voice. I love her and her daughters-- I knew many months ago how hard it must have not only been on her to leave but the impact on the girls. The youngest has lost the second man she has adored suddenly in her life. I consider myself a good man and like Glennon no doubt whatsoever I bonded w her in a positive light. As for being asked to leave for past experiences in the military my love and respect my former fiancé for being true to herself when I couldn't have only increased twofold. I know now without a doubt the path I choose to stay w Jessie, continue my therapy, learn the meaning of yoga, and attend a church where all are welcome have been Gods plan all along. I love myself as she made me and each path I take now is love despite my pain. At the end there is redemption-- I am not there quite yet but I do believe in myself and have faith to be patient and just do what is right each day as Glennon wrote. I don't know where I will be next year but in love life and pain I am no longer afraid. Thank you for this gift. I was meant to read this and my journey has taken a turn for the best! With gratitude and humble respect I ask God to bless all that have made this audiobook and story possible.
