Summary For years Glennon Doyle Melton built a wall between herself and others, hiding inside a bunker of secrets and shame. But one day everything changed: Glennon woke up to life, committing herself to living out loud and giving language to our universal (yet often secret) experiences. She became a sensation when her personal essays started going viral. Her... observations have been read by millions, shared among friends, discussed at water coolers, and have now inspired a social movement. In this book, Melton shares new stories and familiar material from Her mistakes and triumphs demonstrate that love wins and that together we can do hard things.
