Shannon Dingle: Living Brave

September 28, 2021

Shannon Dingle has experienced staggering tragedy and trauma in her life, including surviving sexual abuse and trafficking as a child and the loss of her husband. But through the grief, she learned to find hope. In her first book, Living Brave: Lessons from Hurt, Lighting the Way to Hope, she gives women permission to wrestle with painful topics, to use their voice, to take a stand for justice, to honor the wisdom of their bodies, and to be brave in the darkest times. Shannon is a disability activist, freelance writer, sex trafficking survivor. She has written for USA Today, the Washington Post,  and her story has been featured by Today, NPR, Good Morning America, and in The Atlantic and the Wall Street Journal.
