Love Warrior Author Glennon Doyle Melton Marries Abby Wambach In Sweet Ceremony

The two announced they were engaged in February.

Love Warrior author and Oprah favorite Glennon Doyle Melton has married retired soccer star Abby Wambach after a whirlwind romance.

Glennon, 41, shocked her fans when she divorced ex-husband Craig Melton over the summer after the release of the book, which was a revealing look into her marriage.

Last November, she surprised us all again when she publicly revealed she was in a relationship—and madly in love—with Abby.

"Trust me - you might just wake up one morning and find yourself smackdab in the middle of heaven. I love my wife. LOVE WINS," Glennon posted about her wedding.

"When I fell in love with Abby, I was scared. I thought that my fear might be bigger than my courage, and that because of that size difference, I might miss out on my chance at happiness. This was so painful."

"One day, I was talking to my dear friend Martha Beck. I told her that losing this love would be painful, but that I was used to learning from pain."

Future's so bright..... #squad

"And Martha said: 'Honey. It's true that God teaches us through pain. But it is also true that God tries to teach us through joy first. You can keep choosing heartbreak and pain, Glennon. But you can also choose joy. God can use that choice too. And I actually believe that God prefers to use joy to teach us.' And so, for once, I chose joy. I have lived a long while learning from pain and God, it's been a good teacher. I'm forty one, now. And I'm graduating to joy. I choose joy. You can, too. First the pain. Then the rising. Your courage is bigger than your fear. Love, G (Ms. Doyle-Wambach if you're nasty)."

Home sweet home.
