Jay Aedo is an international entrepreneur, teacher of practical philosophy and children’s book author. Born and raised in southern California, Jay often felt the weight of the different belief systems his parents, teachers and religious leaders followed. As a writer and community leader, he encourages his young readers to look beyond the antiquated programs of the stories repeated for centuries.
For the first time in the history of children’s books, Conscious Bible Stories tells biblical stories from a superconscious perspective. Jay embarked on this journey following his realization that the narrative of victimhood, fear of responsibility, and accusing others for our own mistakes, has gone too far. From Adam blaming Eve for having eaten the forbidden fruit, to the story of Cain lying to God about having killed his brother, Abel, these tales subtly teach us to look outside ourselves for validation and blame.
Jay’s mission is to show others how the truth of God lies within all of us. He encourages his young readers to take responsibility for their actions and to never be fearful of speaking up for themselves. Conscious effort is the key to empowering children all over the world to create their own story from the very beginning.
