I’m Glennon Doyle, author of Untamed, the book that was released at the very start of the pandemic and became a lifeline for millions. I watched in awe from my home while this simple phrase from Untamed – WE CAN DO HARD THINGS – the mantra that saved my life twenty years ago, became a worldwide rally cry.
Life is freaking hard. We are all doing hard things every day – we love and lose; we forge and end friendships; battle addiction, illness, and loneliness; care for children and parents; struggle in our jobs, our marriages, our divorces; we try to set and hold boundaries – and we fight for equality, purpose, joy, and peace right in the midst of all the hard.
On We Can Do Hard Things, my wife Abby Wambach, my sister Amanda Doyle, and I do the only thing that has ever made life easier: We talk honestly about the hard. We laugh and cry and help each other carry the hard so we can all live a little bit lighter and braver, free-er, less alone.

DiamondAF ,

Pure Excellence! Please Do Choose to Listen to this Podcast.

This podcast has kept me engaged and learning — which is a difficult task for any content! It is my favorite. I’m constantly recommending it to people I know. It’s just so, very relevant, helpful and reassuring at a time when I think we all need something like this in our lives. My favorite thing about We Can Do Hard Things might just be the gentle way that you challenge commonly held societal standards and beliefs. Therefore, creating a space for people to learn that it is OK and healthy to change your mind about something you’ve long believed. You don’t have to be how you “always have been” … and same goes for anyone. We can do hard things, we can learn, grow, evolve and just genuinely BE BETTER! Life is for learning! ❤️

Coming home inside

When I read Love Warrior I felt like all my jumbled feelings I’ve never understood or was able to express, Glennon put into eloquence. It was like coming home inside myself. Her raw honest expression of addiction and anxiety has been empowering. I love the podcast show so much for small tidbits of weekly hope and resources!!
