Children’s Book Author
As a child Wade was labeled with a reading disability, this label etched a level of empathy within him that runs deep. His misplaced self-worth created unnecessary stress and disconnect in his life. He leaned into overworking, outhustling, and chasing something that was never outside of him (or any of us) that being self-worth. What may have appeared to others as a constructive approach to evolve or succeed in life, was without question an unhealthy and unbalanced approach to life.
Through his evolution, he’s come to understand that a child’s mind is like a new computer, devouring all information that crosses their path (good and bad). At a child’s early development stage, they’re desperately seeking guidance in hope of formulating an identity that will serve them.
Studies have shown that by the time a child reaches the age of 18, they’ve heard (don’t do or don’t say) over 150,000 times, compared to less than 2,000 words associated with encouragement, self-worth, and belief. This ratio raises havoc on a child’s subconscious mind as they seek to mold their identity. Wade’s series of books is intended to reinforce a child’s unconditional self-worth, and awaken their mind to the splendid mysteries hidden in everyday life!
Wade lives in Maiden Rock Wisconsin and is the father of two wonderful young men Leo & Max. Wade is an avid runner and endurance athlete who thoroughly enjoys the outdoors!
