David Moody is driven by passion and a need to help others who battle against the trauma resulting from childhood sexual abuse.

After years of self-healing, therapy, counseling, David found his voice. Publishing his book, “Fighting Through The Fear: My Journey of Healing from Childhood Sexual Abuse,” helped give him that voice ‒ a transparent, honest, and unapologetic voice. With his voice, David set out on a mission to lend support to those struggling with the aftereffects of childhood sexual abuse.

David has been asked to speak for various organizations as the keynote speaker, including audiences of more than 1,000 people. David has conversations around the country about how he turned trauma into triumph. These conversations are necessary because 1 in 10 kids will be sexually abused before they become 18 years old. There are an estimated 42 million survivors just in the USA alone.

David also speaks on leadership, healing and building a business while dealing with anxiety and panic attacks.


David is a champion of courage for other survivors. A respected and successful businessman, David made the choice to come forward and tell his story publicly so that others might find the courage to share their stories as well. I am proud to know and support David’s work.”

“I began working with David Moody in 2012 when he agreed to share his story for a new version of Stewards of Children, Darkness to Light’s award-winning educational program for adults on how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. Through this program, David’s story has been heard by hundreds of thousands of adults who are learning the important skills needed to protect children. His courage is helping others break their silence. As a tireless advocate for all survivors and the importance of prevention, he is truly changing the way we think about and respond to the problem of child sexual abuse. He has been a true gift to all of us at Darkness to Light.”
