Balance : A Story of Faith, Family, and Life on the Line Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Nik Wallenda, 'King of the High Wire' ,doesn't know fear.

As a seventh generation of the legendary Great Wallendas, he grew up performing, entertaining, and pushing the boundaries of gravity and balance. When Nik was four years old, he watched a video from 1978 of his great grandfather, Karl Wallenda, walking between the towers of the Condado Plaza Hotel in Puerto Rico, stumbling and falling to his death because of a faulty balance pole.

When Nik heard his father quote his great-grandfather - 'Life is on the wire, everything else is just waiting' - the words resonated deep within his soul and he vowed to be a hero like Karl Wallenda. Balance is the theme of Nik's life: between his work and family, his faith in God and artistry, his body and soul.

It resonates from him when performing and when no one is looking.

When walking across Niagara Falls, he prayed aloud the entire time, and to keep his lust for glory and fame in check, Nik returned to the site of his performance and spent three hours cleaning up trash left by the crowd. Nik Wallenda is an entertainer who wants to not only thrill hearts, but to change hearts for Christ.

Christ is the balance pole that keeps him from falling.
