AprilJFord PurpleProfile

April Joy Ford, from Tragedy to Triumph, audiences love her positive and practical advice for living happier lives each day. This Best-Selling Author of ‘You Are Not Alone’ is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and widowed mother of two who turned her pain into a systematic method for reversing sadness. She is so inspiring and upbeat despite all the terrible things that have happened to her in her life that others are not only becoming inspired but empowered.

April wants you to think outside of the box and expand your awareness, thought process and perception on ‘Domestic’ Violence. This just doesn’t start and end with the involved spouse. Speaking from April’s experience, her mother was a victim of domestic violence however it caused a ripple/domino effect to the rest of the household, hence the little girl at 9 years old (April) who faced emotional, mental, physical and even sexual abuse.

Natalie Richards
Born and raised in Central Ohio, Natalie D. Richards is the author of the YALSA Teens’ Top Ten nominated psychological thriller, Six Months Later.  Publisher’s Weekly calls her newest thriller, Gone Too Far, ‘…a gripping whodunit with a challenging ethical dilemma at its center.’  With a career history in technical, legal, and business writing, Richards turned to fiction in her late twenties and hasn’t looked back.  A champion of aspiring authors, Richards regularly presents workshops to schools and writing groups.  When she’s not writing or speaking, you can probably find her wading through the towers of dog-eared paperbacks that have taken over her bedroom.

Inside a Spiritual Teacher By Beth Green


What causes someone to become a spiritual teacher who dedicates his or her life to inspiring others? Have you ever wanted that identity for yourself? What are the joys? What are the pitfalls of ego, expectations and self-delusion that can accompany such an identity? Meet Simran Singh, host of 11:11 on VoiceAmerica’s 7th Wave channel, publisher of 11:11 Magazine and creator of the Rebel Road Tour. Many of you have heard her program and would like to know more about her from the inside out. We will be asking Simran about her early life as the child of an Indian Sikh family growing up in Bamberg, South Carolina. What can she share about living at the divide of 2 cultures? How did those experiences shape her personality? What was it like entering an arranged marriage? Why is she so passionate about transformation and authenticity? How does she handle having a bad hair day? If you are interested in an intimate portrait of Simran Singh, join us. And call in or email your questions.
