When Adam Braun told me about our next guest on the School of Greatness, I had to bring her on.
I had no idea that I’d be on the verge of connecting with someone in such a powerful way. Her courage to be so open hearted from a scary past gives me hope that others can overcome challenges in a similar way.
She writes about her brutiful life (brutal and beautiful) at Momastery.com. Writing helps continue the healing process from her bulimia, alcoholism, and jerkiness.
I’m filled with gratitude to introduce you to New York Times Bestselling author Glennon Melton.
