Author Glennon Doyle Melton comes to Spartanburg Aug. 13

Popular author and blogger Glennon Doyle Melton is coming to Spartanburg.

The New York Times best-selling author of the book “Carry On Warrior” will speak at First Presbyterian Church at 10 a.m. Aug. 13. In addition to her books, Doyle Melton is the founder of, an online blog with more than 500,000 readers.

“Glennon Doyle Melton is every sister’s sister,” said Dawn Bingham, steering committee chair at First Presbyterian. “Her clever and self-deprecating way of laying bare the truths of her life and sharing them with her listeners will have you laughing and crying so much that your face hurts.”

Doyle Melton will visit Spartanburg as part of her Summer of Love tour. She regularly speaks candidly on issues of faith, motherhood, addiction, recovery and serving the marginalized.

“Her message of strength, compassion, hope and love feel like an uplifting sermon that warms and stirs the heart, empowering women to remember their own value in God, their loyalty to one another and most of all that love wins,” said the Rev. Christi Brown, a pastoral associate at the church.

Admission is $40 and includes a hardcover edition of Melton’s latest book, “Love Warrior,” to be mailed after its Sept. 6 release. Tickets may be purchased online at
