've been looking forward to reading Shannon Bream's book. I've followed her career at Fox since she was covering the Supreme Court. On T.V. and her podcast, "Living on a Bream," she's always impressed me. When her book arrived today, I started in the middle and read to the end. Then, I went back and read the first half. It's a quick couple hour read. I'm really glad she included the chapter on Mom Genes. I was really hoping she'd share why she's never had children. I couldn't understand why a smart, beautiful woman who has a loving husband, didn't have children. She did and explained why beautifully. I've passed this book on to my daughters to read. She's been enormously successful and I think it's important for young people to read stories like Shannon's. Success doesn't just happen. I have a mother like Shannon's. I get it. What impressed me about her story is her unwavering faith. Leaving a career she didn't love, and taking the risk to pursue her dream is fearless! Her journey illustrates that trusting in God's plan is key along with a lot of grit and determination to reach your goals. She comes across as fiercely independent and competitive, a classic "Type A" personality. As a news personality, her personal bias doesn't appear in t.v. It doesn't in the book either. The only boss she says anything remotely negative about is Roger Ailes. There's nothing gossipy in it or shocking. She's polite even to the boss that fired her early in her career. She doesn't tell many tales of "behind-the-scenes". She stays classy throughout the book. Buy this book for your daughter to read. Lots of lessons about life and how to take advantage of opportunities when they come your way. It's nice to have a "Good Girl" role-model for young girls to look up to.

Shannon Bream gives us a glimpse into her inspiring life, one based on faith and hard work. She talks about being motivated to study hard and achieve high goals as a student from grade school through college, law school and into adulthood, having a competitive nature. After law school, she worked at a law firm for a short while before working her way in television news where her real interests were. Working with local news on network television for a few locales, she finally got her dream job working with Fox News, first covering the Supreme Court and now she has her own show. She came to rely on her Heavenly Father when things did not go as planned. Shannon is a great storyteller with a genuineness that shows through with her honesty and candid openness about her struggles, moments of despair, feelings of being different at times in this world we live in today but always with her eye on God, giving Him the glory. We see her lovely personality and high moral character in how she approaches all areas of life. A Florida girl, born and raised, she loves football (FSU) and married a handsome baseball player from Pennsylvania that she met while at Liberty University. Her story is told in a way that has one smiling with her and sad for her at times but with a positive outlook. This is an easy read that flows smoothly and quickly. I received an ARC from Crown Publishing and Convergent Books through NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are mine only.
