Product Description

The high-wire walks that Nik Wallenda takes seem crazy to most people, but to him it's a family tradition and a way of life. As a seventh generation performer in the Flying Wallendas, Nik grew up around the wire, the circus and performing. And from a young age he knew he wanted to be part of it.
In Balance: A Story of Faith, Family and Life on the Line, Nik shares his story and the story of his famous family. For two hundred years, the Wallendas have done the impossible. And despite the tragedy that took his great-grandfather's life in 1978, Nik continues to amaze and defy gravity with trust, training and faith in God's purpose for his life. With each remarkable feat, Nik seeks to bring glory to Christ and to honor to his great-grandfather Karl who said, "Life is on the wire, everything else is just waiting."

Publisher's Description

Nik Wallenda, "King of the High Wire," doesn't know fear. As a seventh generation of the legendary Wallenda family, 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 improper rigging. 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 the next day 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.

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.

Author Bio

On June 15, 2012, high wire artist, Nik Wallenda joined the ranks of legendary daredevils when he became the first person ever to walk across the roaring Niagara Falls. The broadcast was aired on ABC to over thirteen million Americans. Nik is the 7th generation of the Great Wallendas. Every walk Nik does is in honor of his great-grandfather, Karl Wallenda, who died on the wire in 1978. Nik has been performing on a high wire since before he was born when his mother (who still performs with him today) walked while she was six months pregnant with Nik. The Niagara Falls walk marks Nik's 7th World Record. By his side on the wire is his wife, Erendira, circus royalty. Learn more at www.nikwallenda.com.
