My father inspired me to follow my dreams and taught me to have the diligence to make them come true

Can society raise the next generation to know that hard work and dedication enable each individual to achieve greatness? Former journalist, now children’s author, David Shew believes every child should be encouraged to chase his or her dreams to build a better future.

Shew’s new children’s book, Midway Barrel Racing Champion, aims to instill the importance of hard work, big goals, family, and also the lifelong joy of reading.

“My father inspired me to follow my dreams and taught me to have the diligence to make them come true,” Shew said. “My hope is to shine a light on the importance of motivating children and educating them on the devotion it will take to accomplish their goals.”

Midway Barrel Racing Champion is the second book in this series, co-written by Shew, his sister and his niece. Both he and his sister always fantasized about writing a book, so he decided they could accomplish that feat together. In their first book, Midway Dreams, his sister wrote the even chapters, and Shew wrote the odd to give the book more diversity. For their second book, Shew’s niece joined the team, making the Midway series a family business.

“Family is one of the most important pieces to achieving success,” Shew said. “They provide you with the infinite love and support needed to overcome the most strenuous obstacles.

Shew and his family continue to develop Midway’s adventures. They hope that together they can inspire children everywhere to spend the rest of their lives reading and pursuing their passions.
