Meet Celia Ward Wallace - who is a Community Leader, Inspirational Speaker, Life Coach and Author of “A Woman’s Guide to Having it All, Life Lessons to Live By.” I thought I had the perfect life: money in the bank, multiple rental properties, and a safe, secure job—until I lost it all. Through my journey back from rock bottom, I realized that a great life is not measured by what you have but by who you are. I am driven to use the experiences of my journey to help others embrace their own, find unity and make a difference in the world. I am on a mission to mobilize 1,000,000 people to stand in their power, live a life of contribution and to manifest their greatness, and I hope you will join me. You too have a gift in you that can change the future of our world for the better.
— Celia Ward-Wallace
As a wife, mother, friend, coach and business woman, I have experienced the highest joys of happiness and the lowest pains of loss. My purpose and passion is to use the experiences of my journey to help others embrace their own.
All people start from the same place of being whole when we are born. Most of our lives we strive to find our way back to feeling whole. Life is about this journey: the journey of removing the blocks preventing us from having peace, love and success. Whatever your priorities are – family, relationships, spirituality, professional or financial – I am invested in helping you achieve personal satisfaction and balance.

Gospel of Matthew 5: 1 Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them.3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.7 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Today's Life Interrupted Radio's guest Judy van Niekerk points out, it’s not just about leaving a legacy, it’s about creating a living legacy. Judy’s life story could have turned out so different. Yet, she didn’t let a life of childhood torture stop her.
Years ago, after waking up from yet another “overdose coma,” Judy had a “major light-bulb moment” where she discovered “What she was here to do.” She garnered up the courage to share her gifts and captured global media attention, including The BBC, RTE and Cosmopolitan and many others. This one act of courage, where she courageously shared her story of sexual abuse from her father caused the reporting of sexual assault in Ireland to increased by 75%.
Today, Judy is committed to making a difference based on what she learned by surviving her traumatic childhood challenges. She now works tirelessly to empower people to love and honor themselves regardless of what happened in their lives.
Her latest revolution is to empower women through “The Digital Bra,” a revolutionary hi-tech solution to a serious problem for women around the world by making customized bras for women irrespective of their shape and size. "Women deserve the perfect fit!" Judy shared that “The Digital Bra (www.thedigitalbra.com) is not just a high-tech innovation. It allows women to finally embrace and love their bodies just like Judy learned to do as she discovered how to capitalize from her challenges." Judy will share with us:
• How to survive, move through and THRIVE,
• How to connect to your greater self to find your gifts,
• How to create a permanent state of inspiration, compassion and self love.
Listen to Judy’s truly inspirational story of courage, championing and conquering.
