About the Author
Shannon is a writer, speaker, lay counselor, and advocate for sexual integrity with a masters degree in counseling/human relations from Liberty University. She has spoken to youth, college students, and adults since 1989 and her passions include:
* Challenging the body of Christ to embrace a life of sexual integrity
* Encouraging married couples in their pursuit of sexual and emotional fulfillment
* Ministering to women who have looked for love in all the wrong places
* Instilling sexual values in children at an early age
* Inspiring others to make Jesus Christ the primary Love of their life
Her passion for sexual purity didnt begin inside church walls, however, but in mortuary college. Her first career choice, becoming a mortician, led Ethridge to work on dead bodies. Many she embalmed were young people who had died from AIDS or committed suicide as a result an HIV positive diagnosis. Because of her own promiscuous teenage years, she knew that it was only by the grace of God that she was standing over the embalming table rather than laying on top of it.
God used these experiences to usher her into youth ministry, and later into Teen Mania Ministries where she has taught and counseled college age women since 1999. She is the author of 8 books, including Every Womans Battle and Every Young Womans Battle, both of which have remained on the best-seller list since their release and have been reprinted in six different languages, offering hope to women all around the world. Her next book, Preparing Your Daughter for Every Womans Battle, releases in June and is featured on the cover of the July/August issue of Todays Christian Woman magazine.
Shannon has been interviewed on national radio & television shows such as Focus on the Family, The 700 Club, Life Today with James & Betty Robison, FamilyLife Today with Dennis Rainey, New Life Live! with Stephen Arterburn.
Although grateful for the opportunities God has given her to influence this generation as a writer and speaker, Shannon remains most passionate about her primary callings -- as a wife and best friend to her husband of 15 years, Greg, and a mother and cheerleader to their two children, Erin (13) and Matthew (10). She and her family reside in a log cabin among the piney woods of east Texas.
