MicrophoneIt is said that writers must speak and speakers must write. With that in mind, I offer workshops on writing or spiritual development.

In 2004, I journeyed to New Jersey for CLASS (Christian Leaders Authors Speakers Service) with Florence & Marita Littauer. They encouraged me at that time to begin my own speaking ministry. It’s coming about in a different way. In the past, I’ve spoken at and led ladies retreats,  Mother-Daughter banquets, and presented workshops on both writing and spiritual development at one- and two-day conferences/retreats. From 2003 until 2006, I led a women’s Bible study in my home. My background in community theatre gives me additional confidence for public speaking.

For a purpose

The blog site of Rick Wade


Where it is a good thing to be an outcast.


We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in and comes out.
