Great news! Our radio host Stacey Gualandi, who’s also a reporter at the ABC station KTNV in Las Vegas, brought home a Breaking/Spot News Emmy recently for her story, Candlelight Vigil Car Crash.

Her Executive Producer Allison Anslinger also won an award in the same category for her coverage of Ammar Harris Arrest. Both travelled to Carlsbad, CA for the NATAS/Pacific Southwest Chapter Emmy Awards ceremony.

Stacey was covering a candlelight vigil for a young girl who died while crossing a dangerous stretch of freeway in the Southwest part of the valley. Seconds before going live, three cars collided at the same intersection, coming to a stop within five feet from where she and her photographer Ryan Brooks were standing.

Her report came on the heels of too many accidents and deaths on State Route 160 in Las Vegas. It jumpstarted local government to install crosswalks and streetlights at this deadly intersection.

Stacey has been assigned to a number of different kinds of stories for the station, everything from covering the Dancing with the Stars finale…

Amanda Owen, with her background in social work and a twenty-five year practice as a counselor and consultant, was a workaholic who learned a powerful lesson: when the giving is out-of-balance with the receiving, you don’t last. In this show, and in her book Born to Receive: Seven Powerful Steps Women Can Take Today to Reclaim Their Half of the Universe, Owen shares why learning to receive—and not just give—empowers women and is a key to their entrepreneurial success. She also provides practical tips and tools women can use to establish this critical balance in their lives.

 

Anu Bhardwaj, founder of Women INVESTING In Women Institute

Anu Bhardwaj is the founder of Women INVESTING In Women Institute, which gathers passionate individuals around the world to create ways to invest in women globally and support the economic empowerment for women and girls. WIIW has caught on with 150,000 followers in 100 countries.

 

JR Marriott, CEO and designer of Tantrum HandbagsJR Marriott, CEO and designer of Tantrum Handbags, is an entrepreneur and mother of twins who decided, out of frustration with frantically digging through her purse to find her keys, to design the perfect functional, yet stylish handbag for women. She talks about what it takes to be an entrepreneur and what she’s learned from running her company for seven years.

 

Our April 5,6th show features two women who are world changemakers:

Jenny Bowen, the author of Wish You Happy Forever: What China’s Orphans Taught Me about Moving Mountains, founded her non-profit Half the Sky after adopting her orphaned Chinese daughter and realizing that many children in China who lost their families were fed and sheltered, but not loved. They could not thrive. Half the Sky provides model programs and trains caregivers in China to enrich the lives of orphaned children so they know that their lives matter to someone. 100,000 children’s lives have been transformed.

 

Yasmina Zaidman, Acumen FundYasmina Zaidman, is the Director of Strategic Partnerships at the non-profit Acumen, which invests in businesses and empowers entrepreneurs to reverse what they perceive as the #1 global problem: poverty. So far, it has impacted 100 million lives.

Anniversary Of Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting Brings Authors Scarlett Lewis and Anne Lamott Together on The Women’s Eye Radio Show

Almost a Year after the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shootings, Grieving Mother-Turned-Author Scarlett Lewis, and Acclaimed Author Anne Lamott, Share Their Journey to Healing in the Face of Tragedy

We at The Women’s Eye are honored to be a radio program and website for women to connect with one another and to be able to spread the word about so many amazing people.

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 11, 2013

In remembrance of the one year anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown, CT, The Women’s Eye Radio Show (TWE) will air two special interviews with authors Anne Lamott and Scarlett Lewis at 3 PM MST on 1480KPHX in Phoenix on December 14th and 15th.

Host Stacey Gualandi speaks with Lewis, mother of 6-year-old Jesse, a Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victim. She is the author of “Nurturing Healing Love, A Mother’s Journey of Hope and Forgiveness” (Hay House Publishing), a book about her grief, her conscious decision to heal and forgive, and her commitment to cultivate nurturing, educational programs in schools that will teach children how to manage anger.

Intertwining the spiritual connection between healing, well-being and happiness by choice, TWE will also speak with recent Oprah guest and nationally-acclaimed New York Times bestselling author, Anne Lamott.

Deeply affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, Lamott will share her personal experiences in finding meaning in the face of violence, as documented in her new book “Stitches: A Handbook on Meaning, Hope and Repair” (Riverhead Books).

Scarlett Lewis’ book, named after her son Jesse’s last written words on a chalkboard at home, “Nurturing Healing Love” has received acclaim from readers and reviewers throughout the world. Discussing her life-changing decision to put Jesse’s words into action, Lewis states, “Jesse’s message was one of comfort for his family and friends, but I also knew that it was a message of inspiration for the world. I feel such a responsibility to spread that message, and that’s my purpose now. I feel very blessed to have it . . . I choose to forgive.”

As the Founder of JesseLewisChooseLove.org, Lewis’ interview also focuses on her work to battle mental health issues. Partnering with school educators, Lewis is providing mindful curriculum in anger management, communication and nurturing skills, aimed at helping future generations in the fight against violence. “This whole tragedy started with an angry thought. I pictured Adam Lanza as a little boy with this one angry thought in his head, which is totally normal, except that Adam didn’t have the tools to deal with it. He decided to blame his parents, his teachers the students . . . he became a victim of his own blame, and I believe prolonged victimization leads to rage. . . . but a thought can be changed,” says Lewis.

Following TWE’s interview with Lewis, Gualandi speaks with author Anne Lamott regarding the inspiration for “Stitches”. Stemming from her desire to explain the tragic events of Newtown, CT to her Sunday school class, “Stitches” tackles the calamity of the Sandy Hook shootings, which she considers to be more harrowing than 9/11. “I thought it was the end of the world . . . It was madness.” On sharing and supporting one another through the experience of loss and grief, Lamott says, “A lot of my book is about paying attention, forgiving yourself and finding out who you aren’t. There are so many different kinds of ways that we stitch and quilt and provide for one another . . . life is about taking care of each other. We have been stitched together our whole lives whether we know it or not.”

“Being on the show with Anne Lamott is my Christmas gift from Jesse,” said Lewis. “I read Stitches and I think it’s an important book. I think people are looking for meaning and I hope they find it in both ‘Stitches’ and ‘Nurturing, Healing Love’.”

Commenting on these timely interviews, TWE Producer Pamela Burke states, “Scarlett and Anne are incredibly inspiring women who were deeply and uniquely affected by the tragedy at Sandy Hook. We are thankful that through their reflections and words of wisdom, we can begin to understand how to deal with violence like this, and move forward with a spirit of compassion and cooperation. We at The Women’s Eye are honored to be a radio program and website for women to connect with one another and to be able to spread the word about so many amazing people.”

Tara Sophia-Mohr, women's leadership expertWe’re looking forward to talking to Tara Sophia Mohr on TWE Radio soon.  If you want to be smart and creative (and who doesn’t?), you can find out how to develop those attributes from principles that Tara has learned from her many years of coaching women.

Her “10 Rules for Brilliant Women” article in the Huffington Post spread throughout the internet.  It was read worldwide as women from Saudi Arabia to Kazakhstan translated the story.

You can find how to get her downloadable Workbook providing ways to apply those rules free here.

She also created the PLAYING BIG Women’s Leadership Training Program, a six-month virtual learning experience, that begins online this October.

We can’t wait to talk to her about all of these ventures and how we can learn to be better leaders and, of course, brilliant.  She’ll be a guest on TWE Radio Oct. 27 and 28.
