What do you do after the father of your children makes a startling confession that destroys your seemly perfect life? You hide in your closet or bathroom a-la-Elizabeth Gilbert in Eat Pray and Love and then go and travel the world to find yourself? Or, you rose up to the occasion head on, pain and all, and keep it real. The last one was the path chosen by Glennon Doyle Melton and then she wrote about her experience with no punches left out.
Oprah calls her a "truth teller" with this statement praising her book Love Warrior and explaining why she chose it as her Oprah's Book Club Selection:
"I read it as a testament to the power of vulnerability. Through it, Glennon shows us the clearest meaning of “To thine own self be true.” It’s as if she reached into her heart, captured the raw emotions there, and translated them into words that anyone who’s ever known pain or shame—in other words, every human on the planet—can relate to."
