What's in it for me? Become inspired to free yourself and live life on your own terms. 

Have you ever felt encaged by your own life? Like you've built a life designed to please other people and neglected your own desires? Glennon Doyle was very familiar with that feeling. Dead-set on becoming the perfect mother, partner, Christian, and writer, she'd completely forgotten to ask herself, “Is this really what I want?”

When she fell madly in love with another woman, Doyle was forced to unlearn everything she'd been programmed to believe about living a good life and start listening to her intuition instead. That intuition helped her build a new life full of love, family, inspiring work, and activism – a life that, for the first time, truly fit with who she was.

These blinks detail just how she did it and will empower you to hold a mirror up to your own life, allowing you to identify places where you don’t feel fully free. They’ll also give you some inspiring strategies for becoming untamed, embracing your desires, and designing the wildest and most fulfilling life you can imagine. 

In these blinks, you’ll discover

  • why embracing her sexuality brought Glennon Doyle closer to God;
  • how she was able to start detoxing from her racist beliefs; and
  • why getting pregnant saved her life.
