It is hard to choose our favorite lessons from Love Warrior. Glennon Doyle’s powerful memoir covers so much more than marriage and her war cry to all women to know themselves and stand by what they believe is piercing and commanding. Whether you’ve read this incredible book or are just waiting to pick it up on paperback, here’s a sample of some of the inescapable and timely lessons it holds. Many can be applied to your career, your relationships, and parenting.

p. 11 — “Every girl must decide whether to be true to herself or true to the world. Every girl must decide whether to settle for adoration or fight for love.”

p. 147 — “But the paradox of pain is that it is only universal in retrospect. In the present, it is fiercely personal.”

p. 177 — “My first thought: I am no longer pretty. And then: Maybe that’s okay. I have other things to try to be.”

p. 201 — “I’ve never let myself trust love because I’ve never let myself trust pain. What if pain—like love—is just a place brave people visit? … If this is true, then maybe instead of resisting the pain, I need to resist the easy buttons.”

p. 231 — “I teach them that faith is not a club to belong to, but a current to surrender to. I teach them that they’ll know they’re in the current when they are becoming kinder and gentler and more open and grateful and when they feel constantly carried toward people they fear so they can fall in love and stop being afraid.”

p. 252 — “Sexy is more about how you feel than how you look. Real sexy is letting your true self come out of hiding and find love in safe places. That kind of sexy is good, really good, because we all want and need love more than anything else.”
