This week, I’m kicking off Season 8 with Glennon Doyle!
Glennon is a New York Times Bestselling author, an activist and thought leader, and is the founder and president of Together Rising, an all-women led nonprofit organization that has revolutionized grassroots philanthropy – raising over $25 Million for women, families, and children in crisis.
In this conversation, we talk about Glennon’s new book Untamed (it’s ESSENTIAL READING y’all!), and cover the following: doubt, faith, what’s required before you can really take care of yourself, how to consider what the most true and beautiful version of your life is, why permission to change your own mind is critical, and how you can find your own “there she is” moment.
What Glennon Said:
“May our dreams become our plans.”
“Faith is a belief in the unseen order of things.”
“It’s impossible to take care of yourself and your family if you don’t first untame.”
“There is no construction of the new without destruction of the old.”
“The goal of family is to create a community where everybody gets to bring their full self to the table.”
“Truth is kindness even if it makes people uncomfortable.”
