Book of the Month

Big Friendship Untamedby Glennon Doyle

March is women’s history month, and we could think of no better way to celebrate than inspiring our sisters with this timely novel. Untamed is part memoir, part call to action. It is the story of a woman learning how to live for herself, instead of the world’s expectations of her. It is a story of bravery, setting boundaries, making peace with our bodies, honoring our feelings and unleashing our wildest instincts. As Glennon insists, “The braver we are, the luckier we get.” Join us in reading Untamed in March and be inspired to live a life that has others saying, “There she is.”
