Carry On Warrior Giveaway

First, I want to thank you for your kind words yesterday on my messy, beautiful experience with postpartum depression. Whether you commented on the blog, Facebook or through text message, your words meant a lot to me. I had that post in my head for awhile and I’m glad I finally put it out there thanks to motivation from the Messy, Beautiful Warrior Project. If you haven’t checked it out yet, click over to read stories from others about their messy, beautiful lives.

The project was started by Glennon Doyle Melton, author of Carry On, Warrior: The Power of Embracing Your Messy, Beautiful Life a collection of beautiful and often amusing essays about the trials and triumphs in her messy, beautiful life, with the overall message of “love wins.”

As part of this project, I was offered a copy of this book, which is now available in paperback, to give away to one of my readers. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post from now through Monday at midnight (one entry per person) and I’ll announce the winner Tuesday morning.

  • I suffered and sometimes still feel like I am suffering through postpartum depression! It was very hard to get through but with a wonderful support system I am!

    • The new mom’s group and the wonderful moms I met there were what kept me going! If you still feel this way sometimes, you might want to talk with your doctor.

  • Love that you’re working on this project!! I have read several momastery blogs, and they just make you feel good, like maybe you’re doing a better job than you think. One that especially resonated was her post about the older lady in the grocery store who implores you to “enjoy every second” with those little ones (we’ve all been there), but in reality, not every second with a baby/toddler/child is enjoyable. And that’s ok.
    Thanks for sharing your story.

    • Oh yes, I love that one! I think it was one of the first essays of hers I read when I didn’t even know who she was yet.

  • […] The Power of Embracing Your Messy, Beautiful Life, just released in paperback, CLICK HERE! Enter for your chance to win your own […]

  • Never heard of her, but your post was really amazing and makes me interested in her book! 🙂

    • It might be even better that way because some of her essays that are on her website are also in her book. This way none of them will be repeats for you and it will all just be nice and fresh. I think you’ll enjoy it!
