April is an international speaker with a passion to encourage women to trust God regardless of the challenges this life brings. Her story of domestic violence, divorce, single parenting, adopting a special needs daughter, and spending over a decade in courtrooms battling for her family’s safety, provides testimony after testimony of God’s faithfulness. During the rough patches in her life, April would say, “Where is God? This Not the life I signed up for.”

God gave her the vision to become an author and share her experiences in her book, “An Extreme God for an Extreme Life.” The book shares how she can see God’s goodness even while living an extremely unexpected life. April believes you can be a mighty faithful woman of God, not in spite of, but because of the waves that come your way.

You may not have signed up for the life you are living, but God can use the very obstacles meant to take you down to transform you into the wise, strong, hopeful woman He knows you to be.
