Untamed by Glennon Doyle — PELE Review

Untamed by Glennon Doyle author of Love Warrior
PELE Gazette Bookclub Read for July 2020: Untamed by Glennon Doyle
  • Do what is right for you…. Always
  • Learn to listen to your Knowing
  • There is no need to justify your Knowing with logic and reason and justifications
  • Progress is important. Progress leads to Progress. We don’t just jump straight into level 10. Start by practising the small Hard things in life.
  • This book shows the importance of having deep and meaningful relationships outside of those with your children.
  • Having the courage and the insight to stand back and see how we are raising our sons and daughter… Are we treating them differently? If so, how does this impact the next generation? If you want your husband to help more around the house, then it is important that we teach our sons as much as our daughters about household chores.
  • Listening to your Knowing will result in some people asking “What gave you the guts to do that” and others “What gave you the damn right to do that”.
  • Doing what is right is more important than doing what is socially accepted. If you believe it is right to stick up for BLM and you get labelled a racist for it (like Glennon did..being white), then have the courage to let that racist label slip right off your back.
  • Anger is valuable. Anger teaches us when something is wrong and promotes us to action. We just remember not to give into the heat of anger but to explore the teachings in it. Often, anger is more about us then about the person/s or things we are angry about.


Glennon describes our society as one that loves labels. She asks us to see these labels as Glasses.
