Personal Development

Since 2013, Renaye Thornborrow has been leading a global movement to bring life coaching to kids. Her company, Adventures In Wisdom, is certifying hundreds of WISDOM Coaches, transforming the lives of children and families around the world.

Renaye uses stories to teach personal development and self awareness concepts to children, giving them the psychological strength and resiliency to move forward in life with self knowledge and confidence. Imagine how much easier all of our journeys might have been if we all had some of this basic wisdom!

It was the birth of her own children-twins!-that sent this corporate executive on a mission to develop Adventures In Wisdom. Renaye had always been interested in personal development:


“After college, I discovered personal development Why didn’t I know this as a kid?”


A fruitless search for materials on personal development for kids sparked an idea. Surely she wasn’t the only parent looking for this type of material. So Adventures In Wisdom was born.


“Coaching children is different than adults,”


Renaye notes. Young brains are still forming and children relate best to stories written in a fable format. Stories are used to engage and teach children about personal development concepts such as positive self talk, confidence, self esteem, overcoming hurdles and so much more.

Join us for an inspiring story with an inspiring trajectory, one that may help a generation approach life with greater wisdom and kindness.

Bump in the Road

Everyone hits a bump in the road. The question becomes: What do you do with it?

I share stories about how people experience, manage and navigate life's bumps, hopefully using them as a pivot into a more conscious and meaningful life.
