2013 September 3, Featuring Glennon Doyle Melton

Guest: Glennon Doyle Melton, Author of Carry On, Warrior: Thoughts on Life Unarmed, and Creator of Momastery

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 hilarious and poignant observations have been read by millions, shared among friends, discussed at water coolers, and have now inspired a social movement.

In Carry On, Warrior, Melton shares new stories and the best-loved material from Her mistakes and triumphs demonstrate that love wins and that together we can do hard things. Melton is a courageous truth-teller and hopespreader, a wise and witty friend who emboldens us to believe in ourselves and reminds us that the journey is the reward. Carry On, Warrior proves that by shedding our weapons and armor, we can stop hiding, competing, and striving for the mirage of perfection, to build better lives in our hearts, homes, and communities.

Guest: Dave Shields, author of Term Limits: A Evolutionary Fix for Marriage

Dave Shields has written numerous articles for newspapers and magazines and is the author of three novels, The Pendulum’s PathThe Race, and The Tour, and coauthor of Saul Raisin’s biography, Tour de Life. He’s also served as a bicycle racing analyst for networks including CNN, Fox News, and ESPN, plus hundreds of national and local television and radio programs.

With society evolving at an unbelievable pace and new technologies giving us instant access to information, the institution of marriage is simply not keeping up, and millions of people are prevented from reaching their highest potential. By introducing the concept of “term limits” into a marriage contract, these changes and the development of individual freedoms are more widely considered in the drawing of an agreement—arguably the most important relationship a person will enter in their lifetime—that has ironically been almost void of thought at inception. The system introduced in this book examines the objectives of marriage and creates an arrangement to support, rather than undermine, those goals, at a time when the definition of marriage could not be more critical.
