"On Fri., Mar. 21, blogger and best-selling author Glennon Doyle Melton will visit Winston-Salem to speak at “Voices of Hope: An Evening with Glennon Doyle Melton” at Centenary United Methodist Church at 7:30 pm. Proceeds from the event will benefit H.O.P.E., a new organization working to fight hunger in the youth of Forsyth County.
Melton’s popular blog, Momastery.com, goes beyond her experiences as a wife and mother to also include her own personal struggles with eating disorders, depression and addiction. She takes a real, authentic look and life and living, taking her army of devoted readers with her with every word.
In 2013, Melton published her first book, “Carry On, Warrior: Thoughts on Life Unarmed.” In it she shares new stories and the best-loved material from Momastery.com. Her mistakes and triumphs demonstrate that love wins and that together we can do hard things. Melton is a courageous truth-teller and hopespreader, a wise and witty friend who emboldens us to believe in ourselves and reminds us that the journey is the reward. “Life is Beautiful. Life is Brutal. Life is Brutiful. We can do hard things together,” she writes.
Tickets for this event are $40 and can be purchased at www.voicesofhope-ws.org.
Prior to the 7:30 event, there is a special dinner with the author event that has limited seating at 5 pm. Guests will enjoy dinner from Julia’s Take Away Gourmet and an intimate conversation with Melton. They will also be given priority seating for the speaking event that follows. Tickets for this dinner may be purchased by visiting http://dinnerwithglennon.bpt.me/. (This ticket is for dinner only and does not include the speaking event.)
