Glennon Doyle is an inspirational writer we all deserve in our lives! I have highlighted this book more than all of the books I’ve read, combined.
What I love most about Untamed is how much she really had me sitting and thinking about the words I just consumed. It took me longer than normal to finish it but the reason for that is how thought provoking it is. There were countless nights where I would read a chapter and then sit and think about how I could teach my girls what I just learned. How I could implement this new mindset to be a better example for them. And how grateful I was to have someone put things that I myself have always thought or felt and eloquently put them into writing.
“Who was I before I became what the world told me to be?”
“Every life is an unprecedented experiment. This life is mine alone. So I have stopped asking people for directions to places they’ve never been. There is no map. We are all pioneers.”
These are just some examples of statements I highlighted within Untamed that really made me feel something! This read will have you feeling inspired, will de-program the toxicity that the media wants us to believe about our own self worth, and have us all challenging day to day conformity.
Highly recommend reading this and not listening to it via Audible.
Overview from Barnes and Nobles
More than just a memoir, this book takes the reader on a journey of self-discovery. It seeks to liberate women from the societal expectations that bind them, to honor beauty and rage equally — it speaks to the soul. While Doyle’s previous books Love Warrior and Carry On, Warrior started the conversation, Untamed started a movement. Her legions of fans (old and new) have found within themselves those three little words, “there she is,” and have held onto this book tight as a rallying cry for what it means to be a woman today.
