My name is Chadwick Sapenter and I am a former foster kid turned serial entrepreneur, best selling author, and motivational speaker. I usually speak on topics like foster care, adoption, child abuse, and adoption. Currently I’m the CEO and founder of Little Book of Words Publishing. I’m married to the girl of my dreams Kimberly and we are blessed with three incredible boys. My life is an example of how the tragedy and trials you experience can be used for good and propel you towards your purpose in life. Whether you are looking for a foster care speaker or a keynote speaker to inspire your organization my goal in speaking to your audience is to inspire them to take action and help them identify their purpose.
“He tells a story that is all too familiar to those of us working with abused and neglected children. Chadwick has the special ability to make the audience breathe with him as he relates his message of hope and overcoming adversity. If you are planning a conference where true motivation is needed, I highly recommend Chadwick Sapenter for such an event.” – Deputy Commissioner, Texas DPS
I am one of the most fortunate people that I know everything I’ve accomplished and been able to do is a product of grace. I’ve experienced plenty of tragedy and I’m thankful for how those tragedy’s have positioned me for my purpose, but it’s not those tragedies that define who I am and my goals is to help others realize that it’s not the tragedies that they’ve experienced that define them.
Over the last decade I have spoken to over one million current and former foster youth, foster and adoptive parents, social workers, CASA volunteers, government agencies and adoption ministries. These audiences appreciate me because I share my story with brutal honesty, humor and authenticity.
I’m a best selling author, the founder and CEO of the most innovative publishing company in the world, and I’m one of the most requested motivational speakers on the topics of foster care, child welfare, and adoption.
