Family Life: Husband, Children
It was in early 1990s when Shannon met her future husband, Sheldon Bream, at Liberty University. During that time, the duo was dating other people until their friends succeeded to put them together. In an interview with CBN News in January 2020, Shannon recalled,
"We had friends who kept trying to put us together. We were always dating other people and we had a friend in common who finally came to me one day and she said, 'You're here at this football game. He's here at this football game. You're going to meet right now.'"

A couple of years later when Shannon went on to law school at Florida State University, Sheldon proposed her to get married. But not long after their engagement, Sheldon was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Sheldon was at the age of 24 when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor about the size of a golf ball, which was removed successfully after a nine-hour surgery.
However, the cancer surgery ended up with little complications; he ended up with severe paralysis. But a month before they were supposed to get married, the corner of Sheldon’s mouth moved. He then started to regain control of his facial muscles.
During the process of tough recovery, Shannon and her husband leaned on faith and each other. Years after coming out from the serious phase of their life, Shannon has penned down about her life journey, faith, and the hurdles in her first book, “Finding the Bright Side: The Art of Chasing What Matters."
