DARING TO SHARE:
DECEPTION TO TRUTH
Compelling, jaw-dropping, emotional roller coasters and lessons of love and learning are only some of the words I can think to describe the stories in Diana’s book Daring to Share: Deception to Truth! And yet, even these seem inadequate in a sense.
From Thomas’ lessons as a man traveling through unchartered territory to Anne’s harrowing and excruciatingly raw example of the mind’s way of coping, each word left me breathless with my heart in my throat and wanting more. Bravo to the brave men and women baring their souls and thank you and deepest of gratitude to Mrs. Reyers for having the fortitude, compassion, and love to bring it all together.

I had no idea the journey I would be taking when my dear friend, Diana Reyers, extended her hand to me in a restaurant in Qualicum Beach in the Fall of 2016. What began as an idea, an event and a sincere desire to build community, facilitate connection, and encourage conversation has blown up into an entire movement. Diana’s Daring to Share series of books has sold around the globe.
Having contributed a story to Daring to Share Volume 1, I know first-hand the impact that being real, raw, and vulnerable can have on others. After having read the impactful stories in this edition, I am elated and excited for the beautiful individuals
who bared their souls and “put it out there” in this edition.
I encourage you, dear reader, to put on your jammies, pour yourself a beverage, get a snack, get comfortable in your favourite spot, and immerse yourself in the journey these authors are inviting you to. Revel in their victories and overcome their setbacks.
We are all part of the human experience. Join us.

Co-Author, Daring to Share, 8 Braves Souls - Volume One
Diana embraces a journey of stories from a unique group of individuals who are exposing themselves naked in this book with raw scenarios and experiences they have dealt with in their lives and how it has affected them mentally, physically, and emotionally. They are brave souls who have opened up and are sharing their private lives with readers. From sexual abuse to the perception of one’s personality, unconditional love and to one’s faith, are a few of the stories that brought me on an intense, emotional journey and in turn, enlightenment on their healing or adventure process.

In a world where we only see shiny and happy curated social media accounts, we are drifting into aloneness more than ever before. In the second volume of Daring to Share by Diana Reyers, she reminds us so beautifully, that sharing our stories is the true tool to find the heart of human connection. We need this. We need each other.

I was so impressed with the vulnerability of the writers sharing their stories. Their heartfelt and honest reciting of their experiences was both touching and relatable. I really appreciated the lessons learned and was incredibly proud of how far these authors have come into their lives.

What People Are Saying About Volume 2
What a lovely book, really worth both the money and time
The stories are heartwarming and genuine, a very good read. I especially like the one near the end on the challenges of being indoctrinated into religion.
