My second guest, Tom North is the award-winning author of the book, True North – The Shocking Truth about “Yours, Mine and Ours”. He appears on radio and television programs, and is a keynote speaker at colleges, universities and conferences.
Tom is committed to raising awareness of all forms of child abuse and domestic violence, and the devastating effects it can have on health, human spirit and life itself. He is dedicated to helping people realize their true identity and their potential for healing. Tom is an Official Supporter of National CASA for Children. His blog is: www.TrueNorthbyTomNorth.com
In his book, True North – The Shocking Truth about “Yours, Mine and Ours”, award-winning author, Tom North, writes about his experience as the 11th of the 20 Beardsley children, made famous in the 1968 film “Yours, Mine and Ours.” With Lucille Ball playing the role of the mother and Henry Fonda as the father, the film was a critical and box-office success. However, the loving family portrayed in the film differed dramatically from the actual Beardsley family. Tom shares what it was like to grow up in that family, taking the road less traveled through child abuse, domestic violence and despair, to hope, and eventually to self-discovery and a fulfilling life.
