A Quarter Blue » Founder's Bio

www.aquarterblue.org [cached]

In seeking personal restoration after facing her ongoing childhood abuse by a church elder/missionary/Sunday School teacher, Martha Nix Wade became impassioned about her healing and the renewal of other "victims.
The books she read seemed to be spoken from the authors' expertise based in education, instead of personal experience. Instead of wallowing in the "Why me's," she answered, "Because I am willing to be vulnerable about my past and present; and desire to use my personal knowledge and experiences to help others cope and heal. I will help protect children with truths that I did not grasp." As a child, Martha remained silent, as so many children do, following the code of silence that is embedded with fear and shame of sexual abuse victims. As an adult, a handful of her perpetrator's "victims" came forward, which ultimately lead to charges being pressed against her perpetrator.

Martha Nix Wade co-starred on The Waltons, Days of Our Lives, and many other television shows.
While Martha's life appeared to be picture perfect to adoring fans and family members. Years of sexual abuse behind closed doors were wreaking havoc on her perception of love, life, relationships, and self. Her autobiography, My Secret Life shares her journey to face the truth on the way to freedom from guilt and shame. Her personal experience led her to start the non-profit, A Quarter Blue. In the summer of 2003, Martha Nix Wade spoke in Imbituba, Brazil at the local public school and at community events concerning the realities surrounding sexual abuse. The people of the community were grateful that someone was so willing to be open. "Nobody ever talks about this. You need to tell the people in the United States. When Martha returned, she felt driven to educate communities about how to stop childhood sexual abuse. The need was great, but the resources were few and rarely up-to-date. Martha created the name A QUARTER BLUE to lead people to ask about its significance, therefore opening the door to educate the person inquiring.
