This month we will be reading, "Love Warriors: A Memoir" by Glennon Doyle Melton . You can either order it online or find it at your local library. https://www.amazon.com/Love-Warrior-Oprahs-Book-Club/dp/1250128544/ref=sr_1_8?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1479660341&sr=1-8&keywords=self+love+book
We will have a discussion about the book. This can also be an ED support group for those who have had or are currently struggling with ED. I am not a therapist, nor do I have any education or affiliation with treating eating disorders but I have found it is comforting being around and talking with those who understand. :-) (even if you do not have time to finish the book please come! We have great discussions!)
The highly anticipated new memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle Melton tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage.
Just when Glennon Doyle Melton was beginning to feel she had it all figured out―three happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller list―her husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed. A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, Glennon found that rock bottom was a familiar place. In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life.
Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on. This astonishing memoir reveals how our ideals of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for a man and a woman to truly know one another - and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything they've been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, commit to living true―true to themselves and to each other.
Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring account of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.
