  • You are invited to Cornerstone Counselling’s Invite the Light Luncheon. For the first time, Glori Meldrum, founder of Little Warriors and g[squared], will share her journey with faith and mental health. Although she is an accomplished business leader, Glori’s path to success was far from easy. As a survivor of child sexual abuse, from the age of 8 to 10 years old, she has endured unspeakable trauma. Recently, a struggle with stage 3 cancer caused her life to come crashing to a halt. Glori felt like she’d never recover from the overwhelming darkness and despair. It took all she had, but she began a journey that led to rediscovering her faith, practicing self-love, and focusing on her own mental health. By digging deep within herself, and by leaning on others when she needed to, she has discovered resiliency, love, and hope by being a voice for vulnerable children, and by advocating for social change in the business and philanthropic communities. That’s why “My Journey Home” is the theme of her speech for the 2020 Invite the Light Luncheon. To Glori, coming home means learning to surrender, living life to the fullest while serving others, and leading from a place of love instead of fear. Glori’s testimony of vulnerability, faith, and strength during life’s darkest moments will leave you inspired and in awe of His grace. Come hear her speak, enjoy a 3 course meal and enjoy some local music. March 11, 11:3 - 1:30 pm Tickets: $55 each, visit www.cornerstonecounselling.com/itl
