Grit: Resilience and Healing After Trauma with Shannon Moroney


Imagine being 30, thriving, living your BEST life, and one simple knock at the door changing EVERYTHING.

Shannon Moroney is the author of Through the Glass, her personal story filled with love, loss, violence, pain, empowerment, and growth.

We ask the question, can love be erased by behavior? The trauma and aftermath of Shannon’s first husband's violent crimes lead to nuanced discussions on grief and support.

Shannon calls her story "unique, not unrelatable”. (There are millions of people in prison, so why are we considering the pain and trauma of the loved ones on the outside?)

I hope this episode challenges you to consider how you’re supporting your friends and family through a crisis. Are you listening? Find the Words is Shannon’s greeting card line, which she designed specifically to help you say the right things—or, more importantly, not say the wrong things.

From victim to empowered, Shannon chose her happiness and saved her soul. She now works toward achieving restorative justice as a victim advocate and as a private practice trauma therapist.

What would you do when the unthinkable happens? Let Shannon Moroney inspire you!
