April Katherman-Redgrave is an author, speaker, blogger, and founder of Beauty for Our Ashes Ministry. As the surviving widow of fallen San Jose Police Motors Officer Michael J. Katherman, April experienced unimaginable brokenness and despair but also witnessed how God redeemed a terrible situation into one of great beauty and joy. Once a school teacher and aspiring educational administrator, April now writes and speaks to encourage law enforcement, the grieving, the divorced, blended families, and finding love after loss.
Now remarried, April lives in Gilroy, California, with David, her husband on earth, and their five children—Joshua, Jason, Brayden, Tegan, and Savannah. They call themselves the RedKat Fam, a wonderful blend of the Redgrave and Katherman families. They enjoy exploring and camping in their RV, spending time together at their family cabin in the mountains, fishing, sports, traveling, and hosting family and friends at their home. As a family, they always honor and remember Mike in everything they do.

I’ve been around Christian publishing since 1987 when I helped our ministry self-publish an important resource for Vietnam veterans and their families. That book went on to be picked up by a royalty publisher and has since sold over 250,000 copies with a million in print.
I’m glad you’re here…stop by often and take advantage of all the information we make available.
