For all women looking to find “hope in a hopeless world and bravery in an age that seems to lack it” comes a searing memoir by Shannon Dingle, a writer and disability advocate who has navigated loss, trauma, abuse, spiritual reawakening, and deep pain - and come out the other side still hopeful.
Shannon Dingle has experienced more than her fair share of tragedy and trauma in her life, including surviving sexual abuse and trafficking as a child that left her with lasting disabilities and experiencing faith shifts that put her at odds with the evangelical church that had been her home. Then, in July 2019, Shannon’s husband was tragically killed by a rogue wave while the family was on vacation. The grief of the aftermath of losing her love and life partner sits at the heart of Living Brave, where Shannon’s searing, raw prose, illustrates what it looks like to take brave steps on the other side of unimaginable loss.
Through each challenge, she reveals the ways she learned to walk through them to the other side, and find courage even through the darkest moments. Living Brave gives women permission to wrestle with difficult topics, to use their voice, to take a stand for justice, to honor the wisdom of their bodies, and to enact change from a place of strong faith.

Vulnerable and though provoking!
This book had me in tears within the first 3min. Shannon's words are so brave and powerful. Her analysis of grief, trauma, and life events are truly thought provoking. Was hoping that this would be narrated by the author, however I do think Jaime did a good job.

A Brave Memoir and Guidebook Through Pain and Loss.
I just finished the book. It’s an avowal to love, faith and hope. It’s also really funny and heartbreaking. Just like grief itself, Shannon’s story is a journey through hurt, pain, unbearable betrayal and unbearable loss. But her heart is wide open in helping to guide us toward a life of Living Brave.
