According to Glennon Doyle Melton, "Life's about how you use what you got." Because honesty, and "truth-telling" is her mission, she has no problem revealing how, for twenty years, she was lost to "food and booze and bad love and drugs." Annie and Glennon laugh a lot as they chat about her past addictions, her strategy for marriage and parenting ("Keep showing up") and the best way for moms to help their daughters let go of the need to be "perfect."
