Publisher's Summary

From the host of Fox News @ Night, a deeply personal book about finding purpose and growth amid life's unpredictability.

Whether it's her work today as a reporter and host for Fox News, her years in law school, or the time she spent competing in pageants like Miss America, Shannon Bream has spent her entire adult life navigating high-pressure environments where perfection is expected and competition is the name of the game. But in this laugh-out-loud book of stories and inspiration, Shannon shares the moments away from the cameras and the halls of government, in which she learned that the values and faith of her blue-collar upbringing could keep her grounded in a world where everyone wants you to be something other than who you are.

In Finding the Bright Side, Shannon continues a conversation about authenticity, humility, and trusting in God that she's already begun with her followers on social media. She shares behind-the-scenes stories from Washington, DC, revelations from her time reporting on the Supreme Court, and lessons learned from the most challenging moments of her life - from the time she was fired from her first job and told, "You're the worst person I've ever seen on TV" to the time she heard "there is no cure." But through all of this, faith (and a little bit of stubbornness!) has helped Shannon to keep hope, find purpose in the pain, and find laughs along the way.

Critic Reviews

"What a gift this book will be to your soul. My friend, Shannon, has a fascinating, sometimes devastating, story that she’s chosen to make completely delightful. The way life twists and turns with the unexpected and unpredictable, can leave some of us feeling disillusioned and fighting against the way things turn out. This page turning read will remind you that with God, there’s always beauty to be discovered, and teach you how to look for it in your own story." (Lysa TerKeurst, bestselling author of Uninvited and It’s Not Supposed to be This Way, president of Proverbs 31 Ministries)

“Integrity. Faith. Diligence. Success. Shannon’s book—and life—elevate these cherished values. For anyone hoping to move forward without compromising convictions, this book is a must read.” (Max Lucado, pastor and best-selling author)

"An extraordinary story of deep faith triumphing over painful hardships, told with such refreshing honesty you almost won’t believe it. And did I mention the humor? If you ever thought the brilliant and beautiful Shannon Bream had an easy and perfect life, you’re in for some big surprises. Read it and be encouraged!" (Eric Metaxas, best-selling author of Martin Luther and Bonhoeffer)

A thoroughly enjoyable listen

We see Shannon Bream on Fox News all put together and perfect. This book provides incite to her personal story and just how important faith is to her life.
I enjoyed it immensely and honestly would like to hear more, especially about her experiences in journalism and how she sees the political world unfold as an objective and serious news person.

Loved it

I really enjoyed learning how Shannon has found the bright side in her journey to where she is today. Through her faith she has mastered "the art of chasing what matters".

If you listen I expect you will enjoy this book too and will find much inside you did know.
