I’m helping my kids be happy
“The The Adventures in Wisdom curriculum is incredible. I have been using the stories with my kids, who are 7 & 10 and they LOVE them.  We read them at night before they go to bed, or listen to them in the car when we are driving to practice or camp and my kids are totally engaged.  My kids tell me about how the things in the stories relate to what is happening in their lives.  My kids request these stories at bedtime, and I’m so impressed with how much my kids take away from the stories.

My son, who is 10, has struggled for years with falling asleep.  Sometimes his mind just gets away from him and he can’t seem to help but think about all the terrible things that could happen to him. I’ve tried everything I know to help him over the years, but it’s been a plaguing issue.
I started using the Power Shifting stories and activities with my son, and he  picked up the concept right away. He feels like he has a concrete tool now, and he had much less anxiety getting off to sleep.  I feel like a massive weight has been lifted off my chest because I know he’s learning a tool that will be with him forever to reduce his anxiety in any number of situations. Additionally, the Adventures in Wisdom curriculum is teaching my kids how to keep the window of possibility open, and I love all of the rich conversations it opens up between me and my kids. I’m so grateful I found this incredible resource.” - Summer Deaton, Master Coach for Lisa Sasevich’s Sassy Mastermind
It’s fun and easy – all kids need this program!
“The wizard makes learning these amazing skills so easy and fun. My kids love the program. I’m recommending it to all of my friends and family who have kids and their teachers too!” - Cagla (Mother of 2; ages 8 & 10) Dylan and Dalton reading AW
“I loved everything I have found about Adventures in Wisdom! It is actually exactly what I have been looking for. My child is 10. His teachers all say he lacks self confidence, which is baffling to me. He is my only child and my whole world! I have learned some of the reasons through the information I received from Adventures in Wisdom! The information was mind-opening and I appreciate it….” - Melissa (Mother of 10 year old)
“Great program! I always wondered how these skills worked and Adventures in Wisdom explains it so clearly…not just to my kids but to me too! This has been great for my family. All families should get this program.” – Karen (Mother two; ages 9 & 12)
Changing Kids’ Lives!
“I think this program is great! My son did the story “No One Will Know Nelson” and the activity that went with it (Skill book: Choosing Integrity – What You Do When No One is Looking) and he completely got the message. I’ve already seen a change in his behavior. I look forward to doing the rest of the program with him. - (Mom of 7 year old). Boy Super Hero Small
My son who is 8 years old enjoyed the story of “No One Will Know Nelson” and the associated items. The hands on activity using food dye and water to demonstrate how a seemingly little lie can cloud trust between two people was a very powerful experience. He now talks about “Nelson” in his everyday and has ownership of what integrity in action looks and feels like. We use the “Lunch Box Notes” that come to my email inbox every Sunday without fail, not only to put in his lunch box, but as conversation starters also. It is always interesting to hear his take on the messages. We have found “Adventures in Wisdom” to be a wonderful additional stepping stone to the lessons we are striving to convey. Thanks for creating a product that is so positive and easy to integrate into our lives! – Cecilia (Mom of 8 year old)
Adventures in Wisdom has brought connection, conversation, and common vocabulary to our family. I listen to the stories with my seven and three year old on the way to school, and although they pick up on differing levels, they both enjoy the stories. My seven year old often uses the stories as a springboard for describing situations he faces that he had not previously raised with me, and we work through them together using the story as a framework. My three year old takes in more than I thought she would, and we are successfully integrating some key terms and big themes from the program in our household vernacular. I am grateful to have found the program so early and to journey with my growing wise wizards, learning at our own level all along the way. - Lee (Mom of 2)

Experts love Adventures in Wisdom

What the experts say…

“Our education system needs help in teaching self esteem and the acceptance of everyone’s differences….In fun and enjoyable exercises, the MePower program does just that — educating children at the elementary level how to be wise and caring in our world, with a healthy self esteem. A great tool for mentoring our children. I highly recommend Adventures in Wisdom.” – Joyce (CEO www.ConversationsWithYourself.com and radio host for www.VoiceAmerica.com.)
“WOW! I’m so impressed with these – how they are set up, the stories… Great! You are going to change people’s lives (kids and adults). How amazing!” – Brenda (Life Coach and specialist in changing belief systems (CEO of www.UnlimitedPossibilities101.com)
Powerful stories and tools help me parent better!
“…I know Adventures in Wisdom can give my son the tools to make his life what he wants it to be. I can’t role model every point of view but I can give him the tools to create his life with his own empowerment. So this is why Adventures in Wisdom is so important to me and my family…” – Melesa (Mom of 10 year old)

“Stories and tools help you guide your children”

“One of my biggest concerns about my daughter getting older is peer pressure. When her friends started turning on her I didn’t know how to help her – I felt helpless as I watched her self-esteem suffer. Now I feel I have some tools to support her. Thank you!” - Suzanne (Workshop attendee and Mother of 10 year old daughter)
“I never thought about setting a vision for what type of grownup I want my child to become and the exercise on power shifting was eye opening. This workshop had a lot of great exercises and brought up new ideas for me. Great workshop! I will take action on my learning today.” – Workshop feedback form
“We need to get this into the Foster Family system. So many times the kids feel invisible and like they don’t matter. This program gives foster families tools for connecting with the kids.” – Sean (Foster Father)
Wish I had this when I was a kid!
I just wanted to let you know that I think you are providing a valuable service that is going to benefit so many children…I am currently listening to The Secret and have gotten very in tune with the power we have over our lives though our thoughts. I think that it is amazing that you are teaching these skills at an early age. If I had gone through a program like yours when I was younger, I can only imagine the impact it would have on my life…Way to go. – Allison (former elementary school teacher and owner of tutoring company)
“WOW! I’m so impressed with these – how they are set up, the stories… Great! You are going to change people’s lives (kids and adults). How amazing!” - Brenda (Life Coach and specialist in changing belief systems (CEO of www.UnlimitedPossibilities101.com)

Expanding my business and empowering kids! Life Coaching 4 Kids
“Thank goodness for Adventures in Wisdom. This program is so thorough and well written – it was exactly what I needed when I started developing a curriculum for my after school program. Because of The Adventures in Wisdom Life Coaching Program for Kids, I was able to focus on getting my nonprofit up and running instead of having to spend a year or more developing a curriculum. 
The skill books also give me a fun and engaging way to work with the kid. I can’t say enough positive things about this program. I think the certification they have put together is fantastic and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to mentor or coaching kids.” - Peter Gray, founder and CEO of LifeCoaching4Kids.org

Former teacher, administrator and superintendent wishes he had Adventures in Wisdom when he was a teacher
As a teacher and school administrator, I spent 20 years helping children who struggled in school. Some were special needs students and others were regular education students. They all had one thing in common which kept them from excelling, they had a very limited self-concept of themselves and their abilities, and they were not able to separate themselves from failure.  Felix Garcia 140x165
When I first came across the Adventures in Wisdom Curriculum, I was amazed with the program. It can be used to prepare children for a bright future regardless of what they desire to be in life, while giving them the skills to deal with everyday problems.
As adults we struggle in our journey to achieve success because we deal with limiting beliefs that were rooted at a very young age. If we would have learned that we can do and be anything we want to be, and that failure is part of life and should be used to make us better and stronger, our reality for success would have been much greater.
I wish that I would have had this program when I was a teacher. I strongly believe that it can be used in schools, as well as with families, to help support children overcome their fears, be courageous, and help them be the best they can be.
- Felix Garcia, M.A., Former Teacher, Administrator and Superintendent and CEO of Focal Point Coaching of Greater Houston
Coaching Certification Provides Additional Credibility
Finding Adventures in Wisdom™ has been a blessing to my business. I met Renaye as I was launching my business and was looking for Law of Attraction and mindset curriculum for elementary age girls.  Candace Avila 130 x 165
What I found in Adventures in Wisdom was the total package – comprehensive curriculum, activities, marketing materials and coach certification all rolled into one high quality program. It has made launching my classes and workshops much easier and faster than doing it (creating curriculum) all on my own. Plus, the coaching certification provides additional credibility that parents and school administrators love.
I highly recommend becoming an certified WISDOM Coach™ to anyone who wants to empower children or teach Adventures in Wisdom. It is by far the best program of its kind.

Unique Program Fits into My Business
As an educator of youth and a purveyor of life skills, I am always looking for interesting and diverse ways to introduce life’s lessons to children. When I came across the WISDOM Coach program, I researched it, and was really drawn in by the complexity of the system, without being complicated for either coach or student.  Sonja Koch
I am a firm believer in teaching or training through prevention rather than correction. When I saw the Adventures in Wisdom curriculum, I knew this was something I wanted to pursue and incorporate into my own programs here at Horses of the Sun.
There is no better gift that we can give to children than the skills to develop their full human potential. Why wait until life’s problems overtake us, and we have to correct them by going to adult courses that teach the same concepts as those taught through these children’s stories?
Thanks Renaye, for developing Adventures in Wisdom and allowing us to use your work in conjunction with our own!
Sonja Koch, Horses of the Sun, Ontario, Canada
The kids love it!
I started out using Adventures in Wisdom a couple of years ago with my daughter who loved the program.  Sometimes we would read up to 5 stories per day – she just couldn’t get enough.  I immediately noticed a positive change in her and I even noticed her teaching other kids the skills she’d learned. 
I began to think what a wonderful idea it would be to coach other kids so I got my certification.  It was a very easy process and I found the support along the way to be of great value.   Michelle Jacobs
The kids absolutely love this program – it’s super fun and engaging.  It gets them to really think about the skills they are learning.
For me as a coach, the coaching materials are easy to use and the support that you get is great.  I feel honored to be a part of The Adventures in Wisdom team and super excited to be able to coach kids and to pass on these wonderful skills.

“Renaye’s commitment and passion for empowering kids is helping kids across the world develop soaring self-esteem and go for their dreams!
She is a true leader in creating positive change in the world.”
- Marcia Wieder, Founder/CEO of Dream University
I attended Renaye’s training on Life Coaching Isn’t Just for Grownups – Three Skills All Kids Should Learn Before the Age of 10.
Renaye introduced tips on how to handle difficult situations.  The tips were so applicable to any age and her use of stories and ways of making it fun were inspiring.
Her work is so important.  Kids are fragile and Renaye’s coaching tips really help them to believe in themselves, develop positive messages, hone their skills and reach their dreams.  If you get the chance, I highly recommend checking out her work.   ICF NYC

I was thrilled to interview Renaye Thornborrow as part of my Unboxed Brain Series – a monthly program where I spotlight out-of-the box thinkers who are bringing creative solutions to the world.  Marcy Nelson-Garrison
She is engaging, creative, generous and knows her stuff. What I love about her innovative approach is that it enables coaches to use stories and engaging activities to bring life coaching to kids. 
Her innovative certification program is exactly what the industry, and parents for that matter, need in this arena. My audience loved her and she was fun and easy to work with. 
If you get the chance to hear her speak or take part in her programs, do it. You won’t be disappointed.

Renaye Thornborrow recently provided a continuing education program for our group of certified coaches.   Pegotty Cooper
Her program for coaching kids serves as a great resource for divorce coaches because either parents need something to help them to focus on the children during divorce AND divorce coaches can benefit from adding coaching for children to their services. 
Renaye is very engaging, has a gracious and direct manner and is so innovative in her approach to coaching children through stories.
I wish I were a kid again because I could have benefited greatly from having a coach when my self-esteem hit the skids after the death of my mother at the tender age of eight.
